That's correct coach, there is no age limit for pro fighters, but after the age of 37 fighters are required to take a brain scan, eye tests and various other exams to ensure that the fighter is healthy enough to be in the ring. But it is not difficult for one to continue fighting as an amateur after 35, once a person turns 35 they can no longer fight internationaly but they can continue fighting locally as well as some reginal and national circuits, but in the masters division of amateur boxing. Also remember that once you turn pro as a boxer you will no longer be able to fight in amateur fights.
