    Bit of a strange question but at what age would a Junior typically start boxing at an amateur club in the UK?

    Stop being lazy....

    The following are rules governing amateur boxing in the United Kingdom: Boxers must be at least 11 years old to compete, though there is no minimum training age.

    Then just check out boxing gyms websites for their lower age limit for their kids classes.......

    I am not being lazy.....ALL the amateur clubs whose websites I have looked at i.e. those in my local area don't list a minimum age but only a maximum for juniors (that's if they have a website). Obviously I could call them up but I thought I would ask on here as I am sure there must be some members whose kids box.

    .....I also thought it would be good to start a conversation on members whose kids box but obviously not....everyone would rather just post about why the AJ / Wilder fight hasn't been made yet
