I am 20 years old my height is 5"11. I will probably be fighting around the 170's range that way i am not too dehydrated and skinny. I don't think pro is for me.

I am thinking of getting another job. One that is physically active but won't overwork you. One that is not too stressful. Any recommendations? I don't want a desk job but i also don't want to be a workhorse and become too tired by the time i get too the gym. I am studying business but i am thinking of just stopping school and finishing up my Associates 2(2 years) in case i want to go to school later.

I wanted to be an Accountant but i don't want to be mentally stressed out and sitting in a dst of the time. I say this because i am average at best and i know i will probably end up being an average desk job accountant.

I was also thinking of being a skill trade worker. But i don't want to go to the gym tired and potentially have big problems.

Any suggestions?

Why base a career around being an AMATEUR fighter. Either go pro or get a real career and just box on the side like I do. Trying to find a job that is not stressful, that isn't physically taxing and allows you enough time to actually train is pretty tough.

At your height, you either want to be as strong as an ox, or you want to get down to my weight (fight 135-140, walk 145-150) because the 6'3" light heavyweights will plaster you over and over again.

I am actually looking for a job that is physically active and not too stressful in general not because I want it to work around my boxing career. That is a plus. Isnt 150 too skinny? How tall are you?

Wow! I haven't read something like this in a long time.

I don't.
I won't.
I'll stop.
Later.
I'm average.

Your post loudly yells you've already quit before you've even started!

Suggestion:
Change your thinking and your language from "I don't, I won't, I'll stop, later, I'm average" to "I can, I will, I'll do it now, I'm better."

You are as you think!
