Dude, that like, sounds like work 'n stuff.

I don't know about matching the weight divisions you're looking at, but here's
three:

Corrie Sanders
Bernard Hopkins
Jermain Taylor

There are probably numerous fighter-profile sites out there. I found the above info on Canadastar Boxing: Closed Circuit-Pay Per View Special Events

It's too bad boxingrec.com doesn't include that type of info on their site. Wikipedia might be of some help? :dunno:

Okay... just those worthy noting... worthy of being mentioned! Those 3 are definate... they turned Pro at 23 or older! Thanks for the link to the site... also... it's not uncommon for Heavyweights to turn Pro at a relatively late age... like James "Bonecrusher" Smith at 28 and Brian Nielsen at 27. Anyways... back to Welterweighs, Middleweights and Light-Heavyweight... Pros at 23 and over... worth noting!:)

It seems like lightweight fighters turn pro at a younger age, on average around 18. I agree with you, heavyweights don't usually go pro until somewhere in the 22 to 27 range.

Another notible for your list: Jeff Lacy was 23 when he went pro.

LOL I know A LOT about boxing, its history, and its past fighters. Heavyweights are my specialty.

A lot of non-Heavyweights turn Pro in their teenage years of around the 20-21 mark! Makes me think of myself as being really old and past it... that's whay I'm trying to find some success of Welterweights, Middleweights and Light-Heavyweight who turned Pro at a relatively late age and carved out a nice niche for themselves. So far... I've got Bernard Hopkins who was 23, Jermain Taylor who was 23, Antonio Tarver who was 27, and that's really about it! ARE THERE ANY MORE? Also... who would you so was the strongest/most powerful Welterweight Boxer of all time? I don't mean "THE BEST" but... the strongest! One that could possible almost bench press twice his own body weight of 141-147 lbs. See You Later! :D
