Best Answer

16 is the best time to start the boxing but he should be good physic man, i mean having a good health and exercise. At this time he can learn more maturely and it would be easy for trainner to teach him skills __________________________________________________________________________________ Personally most fighters in the UFC didn't start till they were in their teens, but if you want to compete with the best you should start as soon as posible. 16 is still an okay age to start, just get a lot of sparing in, that is the best and fastest way to learn.
