    Yes! Rocky Marciano was slightly taller than you and he started at age 22! Some say he is the best heavyweight boxer ever. Remaining undefeated. If Rocky Marciano was 1 inch shorter do you think he wouldn't be the same? Yes you can. Go for it. Follow your dreams. Even if you don't succeed (which is impossible if you're passionate) then you can say you tried and not spend the rest of your life thinking if you shouldv did boxing. Go for it

    GOOD LUCK
