Learn boxing vs others
20 yrs old, no experience in fighting, 6'0" 187 lb.
What is your take on me getting into boxing? I would really like to get into it, is there anything I should pick up on before? Anyone know any good resources (sites) to get into boxing?
Appreciate any help. Thanks.

fitness is the key element to winning amatuer boxing matches

Boxing is one of the best forms of stand up fighting if not the best IMO. The going is slow at first and you will be frustrated basically feeling like your a little kid being taught how to fight ie. stance, how to punch, which punches are which. You will basically relearn everything you thought was right about fighting but is completely wrong. You'll see. Just enjoy yourself.

Just get in good shape and go to a reputable school. Don't get frustrated when they start going over foot work,stance and proper punching techinique. You gotta lay the foundation before you build the house. So just have fun and SHADOW BOX in your free time best thing you can do to improve quickly imho.

theres a good boxing forum there
@ 20 Yrs you might be pushing it unless you learn very quick to be able to compete against amatuers who have been boxing since the age of 12.
Make sure what ever gym you go to and you decide to fight they match you up with raw novices.
Good luck m8 hope all goes well.

Pick punches and imagine there is somone infront of you...learn combinations..but mostly work on your jab as it is essential.
A jab will 90% of the time will win you a fight so get the full extension when jabbing out.

Yes, stand there and imagine an opponent in front of you.
Have fun, i would'nt mind doing "some" boxing training but i am not a big fan of getting punched in the head without being able to kick/clinch and go for knees and takedowns.
