Default 27 too old to start amateur boxing?

Hi all, I was wondering if 27 is too old to start amateur boxing? I just started going to a new place this week and love it. I boxed a little when I was 10-11 years old (just training and sparring, nothing too intense).

Also, how does one obtain a pro license. Is there a certain amount of fights you must complete?

Thanks

Aslong as you're fit and healthier you're never too old in my eyes.

Go for it mate.

You're never too old. Look up Fraidycat's posts, he started boxing in his 30's.

no one's ever really too old to learn anything they set their minds too. The road ahead maybe tougher than when you were younger. But as far as being successful in the fight game at your age. It's slim to none.

Definitely not too old. If you have 3 to 4 hours a day to devote to it you could achieve something great, didn't Derrick Jefferson start in his mid / late 20's? Not that he was the be-all end-all but he did have a couple 6 figure purses and a million dollar B.A.D. fight on HBO iirc.
