    Question What does it take to become a good boxer?

    So lately I've been thinking of becoming a proffesional boxer. So far I have not taken any boxing lessons yet, but I plan on starting soon.
    I want to know wheater or not I have what it takes to become good at boxing.
    What are the traits a person should have to become good at boxing?
    And another question, do you think if I start at 19 I can still become a pro or is that too late to start?

    you MUST have enough stamina to last. Have a good chin and a STRONG core (meaning hips and lower body). I personaly think speed>power. Dont get too big. If you get big your punches will exert less force. Have heart and hit the punching bag.

    Is 19 young enough to make it as a PRO?

    Its never too late to start, Fighting is weird because unlike most other sports you can be relatively old and still be at the top.

    Bas Rutten started MA and fighting in his 20's.

    Some boxers are 40+. Randy Couture was a champion over 40.

    LOL you cant decide your going to be a proffesional boxer, you need lots and lots of ring experience and if you have a natural talent then maybe but most do not.

    Like anything else you need to work hard and be dedicated. But as someone else mentioned you can't just decide to be a professional boxer one day and do it, you have to actually work so hard at it you're amazingly good regardless of if you have natural talent or not.

    I don't know any pros so I can't tell you, but I do know that people who aren't scared and have that "fighter instinct" (for lack of a better term) but aren't much talented usually do very well after some practice, whereas people who just don't have it in them don't make it far, even if they might be more athletically gifted.

    lol it seems like everybody who takes up boxing or mma thinks they will become a pro like it is somehow easier than other sports

    to make it as a pro you need a strong chin, not be afraid of getting hit, willing to train several hours per day, good diet and training program, mentally tough etc etc etc

    can you get up at 5 a.m. to run 6 miles and then go to the gym to consatntly get hit in the face on a daily basis

    and yeah starting at 19 is awfully late, you better be a natural

    Oscar and Roy basically started when they learned to walk

    The only thing I can say is stop asking bodybuilders on an internet forum and start training your balls off at the local boxing gym. When you first start, you'll realize you suck. Suck cannot even describe you. After 3 or 4 months of training, you'll look back at where you were and be incapable of concieving how bad you were. I'm sure that 4 months from this point, you'll look back again and realize how bad you sucked 4 months into training. It took me months before I started getting used to the stance you fight in, keeping my guard up and so on. The position isn't natural, so it's far from comfortable at first. You kind of squat because it helps you turn more on your punches. All of your power comes from your hips so you need to turn as much as you can as that's how you generate the most power. Also, in the beginning you tend to drop your guard A LOT. I've been in Muay Thai (a form of kickboxing) for almost 4 months now and I've improved by leaps and bounds from when I started. That being said, I suck. My training partners paw me with the pad when I drop my guard and I tend to get hit a lot when they paw at me. You have to keep your elbows and hands close together to block your face, but at the same time your arms have to be low enough to block body shots. It's interesting to say the least.

    No offense, but this seems weird. It seems like you woke up one morning and said to yourself, "Hmm, I think I want to be a pro boxer." It's not that easy. It takes years of busting your ass and having your ass busted. You have to jump rope a lot, condition yourself until you're ready to pass out with fatigue, hit the bag like an animal, do drills to build up agility, accuracy and power and so on. A lot of people seem to think that boxers just kind of appear. Like they're f*cking entertainers or something. They just kind of fall from the sky and know how to throw and avoid shots. There's so much involved in becoming just a good boxer, not even pro level, just good that it isn't even funny. Remember, there are a lot of people that are Golden Gloves level that are our age. You and I are at a huge disadvantage already. I personally try to use this for inspiration. Just think to yourself, "That guy is good. Damn good. I'm going to train until I can hold my own against him or even beat him. It's going to be hard and it'll take a lot of work, but I'm gonna f*cking do it".
    There's no "E" in "Camaro", you illiterate dipsh*t

    man, some people really don't know what they're talking about. "in order to become a pro boxer you need a good chin, heart, stamina, and a natural ability". Bull****! all of these qualities can be achieved, and worked on in time, (except a good chin, that's usually a given.)

    One of the pre-requisites is definitely dedication. If you're thinking of turning pro, you'll have to take time to schedule training days & times, and keep consistent. One lost day here becomes another lost day there, all the while your opponent is probably getting fitter. Be prepared as a fighter coming up to a fight to train 6 times a week. Fighting another person and the preparation that comes with it is not easy, it's quite tough. If you train hard, the fight seems easy. Just like Tito says "If you prepare yourself for the worst, the best will always happen."

    What i like about Muay Thai is that it not only gives you a chance to defend yourself on the street, but it gives you so much confidence (especially when you knock someone out), and it makes you feel in good health. The same goes with boxing. So you're getting a lot more out of it.

    Ultimately, the only thing that can prepare you is you. Rather than asking what should you do to a bunch of randoms on a bodybuilding board, go and look up a credited trainer in your area. Go in, see how they train, and join up if you like it. Join in if you're allowed. If there's something about it you don't like, go elsewhere.

    You're 19 years old and never done it before, and you want to be a pro.

    I bet you go to the gym and like 90% of people like that, realise that it's kind of difficult and quit.

    exactly. you think about it all you like and have the greates game plan in your mind to make but as Mike Tyson once said "everybody's got a plan...until they get punched in the mouth"

    the truth is you won't know if you have anything until you actually go train. and even if you look mike tyson on the bag and floyd mayweather on the pads you still won't know **** until you get in and start sparring.

    i've seen guys who looked so polished skipping,shadow boxing etc. then turn into flailing panseys when it actually comes to fighting.

    so forget about turning pro right now. find a gym, find a trainer and just worry about getting started.

    as for being too old

    yea alot of guys like dlh started at 6 and have over 150 am fights but then there's great fighters like Larry Holmes,Bernard Hopkins, O'neil Bell etc who started late teens/early twenties. so it's not out of the realm of possibility but still highly unlikely.

    lol, just start boxing and have a few fights, then you can figure out if you want to become a pro or not. How can you know you want to be a pro when you even haven't experienced boxing yet.

    Next to Don King fixing fights for you, I think the ability to take a punch tops the list.
