Will this hold a ceiling fan?

Hi! Iím hoping to replace our dining room light fixture with a ceiling fan. This is what the box looks like. It feels sturdy but not sure how its fastened. (Condo apartment built in 2005).

Welcome to the forums.

It may be but not likely in 2005.
Pull the wiring out of the box without disconnecting any splices and post another picture.
