I dont know who's world class and started 20+, but I know Audley Harrison start in his early 20's and is a weathly man from the sport.

It all depends on your ability and you weight class, if your a heavy you ok, if your a feather its going to be hard because smaller fighter peak young!! You can become a very good fighter within a 3-4 years and as long as your fitness is good enough you could turn pro.

Its possible to turn pro very late and still make it! Matt skelton is about 36 years old, he turned pro a couple of years ago and is doing very good things. He could fight some names in 2005. He was a K1 fighter before but it proves you can progress in boxing in a short space of time if your good enough.

im starting out im 22

ive seen guys 30+ in the amatures

it depends on you

if your 22 and want to be in amatures for 5 years then take your time in pros

it all depends on you

and how well and fast you learn
sometimes you have the young kids that been training for like 8 years but because their young it takes longer to teach

but 20+ your focused and you know how to push yourself and its easier to comprehend things and learn

I'm going to start boxing soon, and I'm 15, and I think that is even kind of late, because i should have started at an age like 12 or 13,

15/16 is a perfect age to start boxing, i think i was around that age when i started. IMO a lot of the younger kids(12-13) pick up bad habbits like poor technique and talking instead of trainin anyway!

Start boxing as soon as you can.
