    Okay, well I want to start off with my ambition. My ambition is to become a Boxing world champion (I bet 1000s of kids have the same aim, but I'm different.) Not only a World Champion but a global icon around the whole world... Now after you read the rest of this thread you will probably laugh at how unrealistic my ambititiion is. BUT I'm being deadly serious. I'm dreaming big and nobody can make me dream any lower.

    Now after that I want to tell you a bit about me. I'm 16 years old, 5ft 7 and weigh 10.4 stone (145.6 lbs), I'm right handed (Orthodox Stance) I live in the UK and up to yet I have 0 experience in Boxing nor fighting, I've never been in a fight. I'm confident but shy at the same time, if that makes sense? To people I'm shy but to myself I'm very confident, I believe I can do whatever I want in life, and I give 100% in absolutely everything. Also, something else to note is I have Nystagmus which means my eyes move around a lot without me noticing, and as a result to that I have bad eyesight. I currently were contact lenses, although I can see okay without contact lenses. Reading this I bet you think I have no chance of making it as a Boxer, but the major trait I have in my favour is I have heart. I have a massive heart, and I never ever give up at anything. Also I like to think that I'm a Perfectionist, I like to do everything to the very best I can and I take pride in this.

    Okay, for the last 6-7 years I've been following certain Boxers, for example, Floyd Mayweather, Ricky Hatton, Amir Khan etc. But this past year since the start of 2014, I have been following Boxing religiously. I know the punches like Jabs, cross, hook etc.

    I see what Boxers do and the respect that I have for Boxers is unreal.

    I want to learn more about Boxing, and I want to learn everything.

    I have a Punch bag, weights, bench etc in my Garage which I go to everyday. I can see results of getting in shape, but I know I am nowhere near the shape of a Boxer, yet. But I want to learn Boxing, I want Nutritional and Training advice. And I want your advice to know what I should do now. I want a list equitment you think I shouold buy and how much I should train, and how I should train. At the moment I'm only training in my garage until I think I am ready to join a proper Boxing club.

    Please any help/ advice/ motivation you could give me would be hugely appreciated!

    Yeah join a boxing gym ASAP, don't train yourself because you WILL pick up bad habits.

    Just get your self in a gym, do as your coaches instruct, train hard and watch boxing and film studies in your spare time and then have an amateur fight and go from there. For all you know you'll take a few punches and decide it isn't for you.

    Nice in theory,but get in the gym now if you truly believe that.there are thousands of commited kids out there who are tough and ambitous.if you honestly think you have a higher ceiling than them then you need to get down the gym and over time prove it.

    And a bit of advice, if that really is your dream, dont announce it. Keep it inside to yourself.... use it as motivation and only reveal it if pressed. Thats how u make it real, with your actions not making superflous announcements like it means something

    Join a good gym. Just as you'll pick up bad habits training yourself, you'll also pick up bad habits if not trained properly.

    A good gym is about far more than the amenities. There should be a connection with the trainers, trust in what they tell you, and a competitive feeling in the air. It is cool to become buddies with the guys you train with (I did) but make no mistake that in that gym you are there to push each other and make each other better.

    Also, learn, really learn, how to watch fight tape. You should see not just the punch, but the balance, then eventually the move used to put themselves in position to throw that punch from that spot at that time.

    Has this lad ever posted back about what he did?.

    My advice would be to join a gym and prepare to be humbled. There isn't a fighter in history that hasn't got their heads punched in. You might think you know the shots but as soon as you are put in sparring someone will fuckin beat you up at some point. That's the nature of the beast.
