    if you're good enough you're old enough

    I don't believe there is a 'good' age.

    I can't imagine a 17 going pro... What age was Tyson when he went pro?

    "Baby Bull" juan Diaz (27-0-13 KO) turned pro at 16!! on June 23, 2000. Too young to box professionally in the United States, he fought his initial three bouts in Mexico.


    but yes, it is very young

    Tyson was a one off though.
    You can't compare yourself to that guy.
    He knocked out least the first 15 of his opponents.

    Many Mexican fighters turn pro at 15, it is amazing but they do. I would advise turning pro whenever you feel you have gotten all of your strength and finished growing. But I'm no expert lol so what do I know
    "You knocked him down...now how bout you try knockin me down ?"
