But where I live there are few gyms and there mostly Latino. I mention this because I walked in one of their gyms and they just stared. Also I weigh too much I need to lose atleast 25 pounds and I still be in light-heavy division. Should I go amateur idk I hear boxing is dangerous and I dont think those trainers would train me.

Nah even more dangerous and training is expensive unless you want to fight amateur or pro.

My nephew is a boxer and is Golden Gloves Champ for his weight class. The first time I went to one of his fights I was so nervous but he is a boxer in every sense of the word. I was surprised because I didn't think he was that serious. He has always been athletic and played basketball, football and ran track.

Keep it up and just give it your all and good luck. You can do it.
