Hello sylvie and everyone, so i would like to take the next step of trying to go pro but i hesitate and i dont know why exactly.. Maybe im afraid that i will not be that good or i im kinda scared for the first time in the ring. To be honest i dont even know why i hesitate but i do.. Any advice? Thanks

Didn’t you start training only 4 months ago? Most people will say it is a bit too early even for the first fight, let alone turning pro. When you say “going pro” do you mean just having your first (ever) official fight?

Yes to both of your questions. My coach told me that in a month he would like me to join the fight team of the gym cause im doing really well in training(if i want to of course) Your first ever fight i dont think its pro its just amateur.. Before going "pro" i think you should have a lot of amateur fights.

Ok, that makes sense.

Now answering your question, I suggest talking to your trainer. Joining the fight team might also mean training with the fight team for a few months before having an actual fight, so you'll have time to figure it out.

If your trainer thinks you are ready to fight and you want to fight, sure, go ahead.

On the other hand, if you don't really-really want to fight, don't do it, at least yet. There is no shame in wanting to train some more before fighting. Being in the ring not really wanting to fight is not a good experience.
