I'am 16 years of age and i box amature in england 0 fights yet but the trainers have said i have got potential and i'am training really hard and i'am going to get medicaled this week or maybe next but theres a problem. With my eyesight i have a 100% in one eye and about 30/35% in the other i have a lazy eye which is basically blurred vision but with my bad eye i can still see big letters and play most video games i just can';t see small text. And i do well in sparring as i'am pretty slick and don't get caught that much do you think the doctor will pass me and what do they do on amarure and pro medicals and do any of you know others pro boxers or amture boxrers that box with bad vision in one eye!

Yeah David Reid had limited vision on one of his eyes and he won the olympics.

Chances are you'll just have to sign medical wavers saying that you can't sue etc, depends on who you box with though and their insurance.

I think you'll pass. Joe Frazier was pretty much blind in his left eye and look what he did. Good luck.

It all depends how much you love the sport and what are you willing to sacrifize, I'm sure you can find ways to fool the doctors, but they're not the ones who are gonna have to live with one good eye if something happens to you, remember that some times a punch can be faster than the blink of an eye, good luck to you in what ever you deceide.....
