Am I Too Old To Start Boxing?


One of the most commonly asked questions about boxing is whether an individual is too old to start boxing. Since I first went online almost 15 years ago, I’d guess that this question has landed in my inbox at least several hundred times. Most recently, I had a man ask me the exact question this morning. He even passed along a video of himself hitting the bag in hopes of me analyzing whether he is too old to box.

Based on the frequency of this question, it is worthy of a discussion. Yet before I elaborate, I will first share a video from last year that includes somewhat of a response. The aspiring boxer that I mention in the video has stayed in touch with me and now has 6 amateur fights under his wing. He couldn’t be happier with his decision to pursue the wonderful sport of boxing.

Whether or not this young man ever fights professionally is irrelevant when discussing his decision to box. Since when does your likelihood to win a world title dictate whether or not you should lace up the gloves? If that was the criteria, most boxing gyms would be empty.
I say this not to suggest that you should not strive to excel. You should naturally set high expectations for yourself. It is also important to remember however that there is an inherent reward that is included when you partake in an activity that you are passionate about. In other words, if you love boxing, you will be rewarded by boxing. You do not need to become a world champion to enjoy the sport.

Perhaps the greatest and most common example of this concept has nothing to do with boxing. Take a moment to think about little league baseball. What percentage of little league ball players will ever make it to the pros? I don’t have exact figures, but I know that the probability is extremely slim. Does that mean we should start telling little leaguers to pack up their bags and go home? Of course not…

If you played baseball as a kid, I’m sure you have loads of memories that you will cherish forever. Those are memories that no one can take away from you whether you played professional ball or not.
Why is boxing any different?

You can enjoy the sport of boxing at any age. My first trainer (Rollie Pier) is in his eighties and he still laces up the gloves. He purchased a new head gear when he was 75 years old. He still enjoys moving around the ring with the youngsters in the gym. And while some may label boxing as a dangerous activity, his continued involvement has helped him age gracefully. He does not look anywhere near his age.


Can you still become a champion?

While much of this entry is focused on enjoying the sport, there will certainly be those who are still curious about their chances to succeed in boxing despite starting a later age. Fortunately, there are countless examples of fighters who have done quite well after starting in their late teens or early twenties.

Almost every era has its share of late starting fighters. A few examples from the past include Rocky Marciano, Sonny Liston, Ken Norton, and Earnie Shavers. Slightly more recent examples include those such as Dwight Muhammad Qawi, James “Bonecrusher” Smith, Ray Mercer, and Tim Witherspoon. Even more recent examples include Glen Johnson, Kermit Cintron, Mike Alvarado, Nate Campbell, Hasim Rahman, and Sergio Martinez.

In summary, the names above are just a few that come to mind. There are many others but even this small list proves that certain athletes possess the ability to do quite well despite a late start. The take home lesson for any aspiring fighter who finds this entry should therefore be simple. Plenty of others have done well despite a late start, so who is to say that you cannot as well? Ultimately, no one can answer that question in advance. If boxing is something that you are passionate about, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. Perhaps you will never have a formal fight, but at least you will enjoy the sport that you love. That alone will make your decision to lace up the gloves more than worthwhile.

Is it too late to start professional cricket at the age of 18?

Thanks for A2A :)

It's never late to follow your passion !!

You are 18 now. So you still have 1 year of under 19 cricket left.Quickly find out a local club or academy where you can learn the basics of cricket (Remember professional cricket is much more tough and entirely different).

Just a bit of advice.

If you are taller than 5.8, it will be good for you to focus more on bowling. Build a good body,take care of your fitness and try to bowl fast.

In these days, everone is trying to become a batsman.Everone is trying to become another Kohli !

But,if you can bowl at 135+ kph, you can easily impress selectors in Ranji trials. BCCI has launched special missions to find out fast bowlers and it keeps tracking the news of bowler's talent hunts. Make sure you never miss it since they directly pick players from there to NCA and then recommend them to a state team.

Yes, I must say that it's going to be a tough journey for you as there are lots of talented teenagers who share the same dream. You have to compete with them.

But as our parents say , hard work is the key at the end.

Best of luck !!

Thank you !

P.s. additional motivation :

No!

You are never to old for any kind of education.

What is Age? Time that goes by !

What is this clock time we use to measure our age? Physics is not enough per se to explain the passing of time. This is my personal opinion.

So, go for it ! good luck.

In the US, many people enter a new profession -- such as high school teaching -- as "career changers." So 30s and 40s is not too old at all. (Or 50s or 60s.) If you already have college credits, shop around a bit for colleges that will accept those toward a degree. If you already have a bachelor's in another field, you may just have to take a year or so of courses, or in some cases, move directly into an MEd program. One important thing, in the US, each state has different requirements, so pay careful attention to meeting your state's requirements, not just credits, but the actual schools that you must attend to become licensed in your state. A good place to begin your search would be the state college or university closest to where you live. They will also help make your state requirement clear.

Around the age of 31 most people have a greater understanding of Mathematics. This is a natural follow-on from maturity and understanding of how Maths impacts on our lives.

At school level we learn the basics but never really in a practical sense. It is all textbook theory. The applications of mathematical theory happens only after leaving school. By 31 most people have a better understanding of the subject area.

This is the right time to mix theory( which by now is all but forgotten) and practice to arrive at an intellectual level.

By all means go to College to study Maths. You would be surprised to be at the top of the class merely through the sense of discovery in the last fifteen years! You will shine.

Good Luck.

No, universities do not have a maximum age of admission. Therefore you can apply, be accepted, enroll, and complete your studies just like anyone younger than you.

Is 19 a good age to start boxing?

Yes it is it's never late there are many professional boxers who started late but still succeeded , you have to work harder though .

And I also think that even people who start training at very young age start taking sports seriously when they are in their late teens. So start enjoying the process , and you will get success.

Boxers who started in their late teens

1.Deontay wilder

He started training when he was 20 years old. He is 34 years old now.

2. Rocky marciano

The undefeated champion with the record of 49–0 didnt start boxing until the age of 24.

3. Anthony Joshua

4. Bernard Hopkins

5. Ray Mercer

6. Sonny Liston

He didn't start boxing until the age of 19.He was one of the most intimidating fighters of all time

7. Ken Norton

Can I go to law school at the age of 32 or will I be too old to start a career in law?

Can I go to law school at the age of 32 or will I be too old to start a career in law?2021-06-17 21:31:21Mr_曾

You're not too old, but I would not go to law school if you just don't know what you want to do.

The amount of money it would cost, combined with the still dismal prospects of finding legal employment after graduating from even a top (but non-Ivy) law school, would make this a very expensive gamble to take and lose.

Law school is for those who:

  • know they want to become a lawyer
  • understand what all is involved (short primer: TV does not give accurate portrayal)
  • still think they want to do that for decades, and
  • have a clear and VIABLE plan on how they will get a job. Going to take over family law practice? Go for it! Dad has a lot of lawyer friends who have openings and owe him a favor? Go for it! Otherwise, if your grades aren't stellar after the first year of law school, good luck finding a summer internship. If you can't find a summer internship, good luck getting a job offer lined up before you graduate. If you can't get a job offer lined up before you graduate…er, good luck. I hope hanging your own shingle will work out.

Again, age is not a factor. I knew a lot of older students when I was in law school. But do NOT do it just because you don’t know what else to do. You would not spend a quarter-million dollars on anything else that's just like an “eh, maybe”, would you??

ETA: “I’m going to study really hard in law school and get good grades” does NOT count as a clear and viable plan. Everybody has that “plan”. However law schools have a hard grading curve, meaning that only 10% of the students can be in the top 10%, no matter how much you all work your asses off. 90% of the students have an 100% chance of NOT being in the top 10%. Statistically you are more likely to be in the 90% than you are to be in the 10%.
