Hi YoungGun. I say if you want to box and believe in yourself do it :thumbsup: 2 1/2 months is kinda short but the owner of the gym must see something good in you to ask you :thumbsup: Go for it! ;)

If I were you I would improve the stamina, spar some and see how it feels, also watch amateur fights to see if you think you can compete. Use your head though, not your heart.

Fighting an amatuer fight is exciting especially the first time. 3 3 minute rounds is suprisingly exhausting, I would tell you to get some more training and especially sparring in. Your power will have almost no effect in amatuers, stamina and technique is where its at.

I started at 16 left it for a while got back at it at 19 and technicaly I find myself nastier and more aware of whats happening this time around. Analyzing fights from the best boxers and recognizing the good and bad things they do will do that for you.
