Default Club fighting?

I think i'm a little too old to go pro at 24 but i would love to fight and try to make some money. Would club fighting be a good way to go? Serious opinions please.

Doing it for money is a really, really bad idea. You'll spend more money on medical bills than you'll make unless you're a 1 in 1,000 exception.

Go for it. Whether or not you fail or succeed, at least you won’t regret not trying when you are too old. But because it is something you love and not for the money.

You never know until you go for it. You could be a regional success or you could rise in the ranks for more. I suggest you go right into it and be smart about directing your path. Don't look to punching bags to fill a card, be willing to take fights which serve the purpose of experience and not just cash.

With no prior experience? I'm going to just join the crowd here, really, what do you have to lose? Why not? Anybody could kick a club level fighters ass, easily. LMFAO...……

You do realize that all of the people telling you to just do it have no experience with the pros, not even any amateur experience. Truth!!……..Rockin'

Actually, you are insured by the promoters, to a limit, for any injuries incurred by fighting on his promotion...…….Rockin'
