It all depends on the type of boxing. English boxing distinguishes several categories: recreational boxing or educational boxing, amateur boxing and professional boxing. Amateur boxing is the type of boxing you see at the Olympics. Many Olympic champions (like Tony Yoka or Anthony Joshua) then become professional boxers.
Amateur boxing can be practiced from 13 to 39 years old. However, to continue until age 39, you must have obtained your first license before age 34.
Recreational or educational boxing is aimed at a much wider audience and can be practiced from 7 to 77 years. Boxing techniques remain the same with one notable exception: the goal is not to send powerful punch to beat your opponent.
