    Start with 24 competition-oriented boxing?

    Hello everybody,
    Can I still go to competitions or even more boxing when I am 24? Or would I just hang too far back. Today someone told me that I am too old ... I boxed when I was 14-16 but stopped and started doing weight training. In the meantime I tried out a lot such as BBJ, MMA etc. Now I want to start again with boxing and do it consistently ...
    Thanks for your answers in advance; P

    You're not the first to write an opening post like this. Here you will hear everything from "Yes, of course, no problems, just have to want it" to "No, never, concentrate on what others do and do boxing, if only as a hobby.

    And you're the only one who really has something to say. ^^

    The problem is not that you don't want to start again until you are 24, but that you didn't start until you were 14. So you have not internalized the movements and can no longer call it up.

    On the other hand ... it's MMA but Jimi Manuwa only started at 28 and recently got close to a title shot

    Well, when should you start? I don't think 14 is too late. With the quality of the training in German clubs, a few years won't matter anyway.

    I think about what you've done before.


    I also think it's different to start at 14 and pull it off or take an 8 year break. If you take such a long break, then it would be an advantage to have saved your movements as you grow up. Since 14 is more the upper limit I think

    Go to training, train consistently, compete with other training partners, get an opinion from the trainer, and then decide for yourself.

    It is not impossible.

    I know you will want to put me up against the wall for the comparison BUT: ()
    Anthony Joshua started boxing "only" at 18, and is now world champion and one of the most sought-after athletes on this planet.

    So I have no idea what the exact differences in motor skills and how they can be learned are between an 18 year old and a 24 year old, but I would say there are still enough doors open to you.

    But still! : Start first and do it, the path you are striving for is not really an easy one.
