It was sick! I couldn't believe the parents were encouraging it. I felt sorry for the girl crying when she was at the ring and the dad saying shes just going through a girly faze, like fighting is what shes really suppose to be doing!! That connor boy annoyed me thinking he was all hard, I bet when he grows up he's gonna be right violent and abusive.
The Asian boy, I think the dad was just making him do it because of his own failures and the other boy from Wigan I felt extremely sorry for him, he literally had no time for himself. He was saying how he'd love a day off and do other things but his parents said he needs to train. His mum was evil said she actually enjoyed bashing another womans nose in, in one of her previous fights, and I can't believe they made him fight when he was just two and a half years old! Parents like that make me feel disgusted.
I was just talking about it with my cousin and he argued that it's a sport, if its ok to put your child forward for football training etc at the age of 4-5 then why not thai boxing and he thinks there's nothing wrong with it, but there is so so much wrong with it! A child's body is weak and I know they're only fighting children and have the protective gear on but how easy is it to kick/punch in the face?! and that could seriously hurt a child and damage them. How can anyone in their right mind say that pushing two children in a fighting ring at the tender age of 5 and telling them to kick and punch the other child call this a sport? If they wish to do this when they are older then so be it, but 5year olds should be enjoying their childhood!!
