People say that my reasons for wanting to fight are wrong and that I won't do well but I feel the complete opposite. I'm tired of people looking at me and thinking so lowly of me. I want my opponents and the people watching to feel my intensity in every punch, and when I win, nobody deny me my victories.
Its angsty and edgy, but yeah. This is what goes on in my head.

I can't see any reason why not. Your reasons aren't wrong - some people when it comes to things like this turn to unhealthy outlets such as drink, drugs etc. With boxing however it will only improve your health and your confidence in general. Many of the best boxers/fighters have been disadvantaged and that was their motivation.
However you mention that you don't care for the sport - in order to do well you have to care about it. Your heart has to be in it. It requires a ton of discipline, a lot of sacrifices in order to do well. You'll have good days and bad days like anyone else - if your heart isn't in it, you most likely won't stay disciplined on your bad days. Heart is what gets you through the hard training and through hard fights.
You have to love the sport to do well, and you have to be obsessive about it - obsessive is the word average people use to describe the dedicated. You have to eat right all the time - you're in good shape but you need to lose some more fat. Avoid partying, alcohol etc. Again people will call this "unhealthy", but if you eat nothing but good food and you avoid filling your body with shit, it's not unhealthy at all.
