it is good 4 kids to do sport these days ,with all the video game, fast food crap etc etc,

p*********** Says, in 12-6-2012 at 10:47:58 from    

this kid will have brain damage by the time he’s 25 if he they let him spar that hard every time…

ultimate fighter Says, in 12-6-2012 at 11:11:13 from    

This kid will go far, looking forward to him turning pro and relising his potential

foxy shazam Says, in 12-6-2012 at 11:27:48 from    

uhh yea, by the time he is an adult he may still be 5’2″ 100 pounds

When I was 16 and played sandlot ball, there was one kid on the team who was truly exceptional. The coaches worked him harder and had him working out with the college teams. Long story short, he threw out his arm by trying to develop too soon and compete to hard before his body was fully developed for the upper leagues. Hope this kid isn’t burnt before his prime.

fighting for daddy’s love….worked for Oscar De La Hoya and many others….

He is gonna be really successful if he decides to go into mma or boxing making a lot of money till he is 37, if he is lucky he will do some announcing until he is 50 and then 56 will forget his whole life and his bastard father.
The kid is not intelligent (old) enough to understand what it is doing to his brain and I feel like his dad just sees a paycheck. Hopefully, he burns out soon and keeps his brain and go to college.
But mad props on his skill.

Stefano Says, in 12-6-2012 at 12:32:32 from    

Danm theres mad haters on this post, that being said if any of you were real boxing fans you would know that in country’s like Mexico and Europe start there kids in boxing at the age of 6. this kid just happens to be American

AOPrinciple Says, in 12-6-2012 at 13:08:41 from    

I really have to wonder how healthy is it for a kid’s cerebral development to be hit like that all the time at such a neurologically fragile age. I hope he doesn’t have potentially debilitating problems in his twenties, or something.

lol ^^ foreal you people are dum

grapplingj Says, in 12-6-2012 at 13:40:44 from    

I kick the living s*** out of that kid cause I have a good 140 pounds on him. Not to mention the superior reach advantage. Just saying…..

Yomommamoto Norifumi Says, in 12-6-2012 at 13:52:43 from    

Sounds like he’s an American import by way of Albania Stefano….as it say’s in the blurb under the title…

What country is Europe? Haven’t heard of that one…

People appear to be trying to say that he will incurr considerable and probably permanent cognitive damage, especially to his frontal lobe, impairing his ability to function at a decent cognitive level outside of boxing/MMA.

It’s one thing to hardcode muscle memory and specific athletic responses into your body as a young person but something completely different to not being able to attend to life’s other aspects outside that phys. discipline at the age of 25.

DaBigFish Says, in 12-6-2012 at 13:59:41 from    

Not my kid, so I won’t give any advice. I see it three ways, 1. It could be detrimental to this young mans development or not. 2. I’m not a big fan of helicopter parents that live vicariously through their children in sports – you name it – golf, baseball, football, fighting, etc. 3. Internationally kids partake in contact sports world wide think Muay Thai in Thailand – in the US kids are coddled and rarely get the physical workouts they need.. US kids barley get to attend 30min of P.E. everyday and are more and more playing electronic games than exploring the world.. Nature deficit disorder.

Roe Jogan Says, in 12-6-2012 at 14:22:43 from    

The kid has amazing skills and heart.

He will be using a drool cup by age 40. No kid should be taking head blows.

McClinchey Says, in 12-6-2012 at 17:04:35 from    

all the obvious brain and concussion issues that arise from repetitive blows to the head aside, i think the scariest thing about this kinda thing is that hes 13 and talking like if he does what hes supposed to do he will be able to fight professionally, will he be able to cope with not making it? will his family be there everyday for him when and if his dreams dont materialize? either way good luck to him and hope he has a healthy life.

TheKungFuLowKick Says, in 12-6-2012 at 18:06:35 from    

@Nexstory,p***********,foxy shazam
Don’t hate him because you never trained in your life but wish you were a world champ.It’s not his fault he’s 13 and he’s alredy better then you guys will ever be.

This is the most pathetic comment I ever read on the whole internet.1st of all being a 240 pounds fat F*** is nothing to be proud of.2nd you probably would get your ass kicked since you never trained.

COUTURA Says, in 12-6-2012 at 19:00:09 from    

who cares let the kid make his father proud and make money its better than this stupid American kids smoking cigarets at 10 and up
and doing cocaine or crack or pillswith a juvenile record its sad but almost all the champions in the ufc are from another country

bec Says, in 12-6-2012 at 20:42:42 from    

good but not enougth
i have kinds in my gym here in mexico who can defeat this boy in a boxing match

keyboardcowboy Says, in 12-6-2012 at 21:34:05 from    

u guys are on crack. amateur boxing is ranked 72nd in injuries, after sports like golf and tennis, even. when you wear headgear, its not that bad. and he was, so shut up and quit being jealous youre not as great.

Powertele Says, in 12-6-2012 at 21:44:11 from    

Parents should not be allowed to do this to their children. They travel to avoid laws that were developed by doctors to protect lives. You can get a new shoulder, hip and knee: YOU CANNOT GET A NEW BRAIN. The damage to the frontal lobe before it is developed will prevent the brain from fully developing. Grappling training would be good and bag work, but blows to the head and body are dumb. WHY DO YOU GUYS THINK THE NFL LINEBACKERS ARE FIGHTING FOR MORE PROTECTION IN THEIR SPORT? DAMAGE TO THE FRONTAL LOBE. The frontal is the part of the brain that gives us choice and function. It makes our personality. It is who we are. Damage it and life begins to suck. There must be a balance. We are all concerned and all have valid points. But remember, brain damage is most often irreversible.

texlex Says, in 12-6-2012 at 21:47:02 from    


your post made my day!…priceless

Genghis Khan Says, in 12-7-2012 at 01:06:35 from    

This kid won’t make it past 20. Body and brain will be finished by then

greengiant Says, in 12-7-2012 at 07:40:10 from    

I agree with everyone saying its bad for a young kid to get hit so often already.Some parents push their kids too hard too soon and other parents don’t push enough.Let the kid learn the fundamentals and when they get older its their choice if they want to continue or not.The dad is basically pushing his kid to do what he wants him to do and mentally the kid will think that’s what he does want to do.Like i said let kids be kids and give them the fundamental things they will need without pushing them to do what you want them to.

coutura Says, in 12-7-2012 at 11:45:44 from    

i hope this guy is not giving the kid roids the kids face looks like a roider face for his age i think its to much exercise boxing and then kickboxing in one day for 6 hours i think the kids is taking something

GrappingJ Says, in 12-7-2012 at 13:07:27 from    

TheKungFuLowKick, do me a faovr and remove your sandy thong and take a f****** joke. Second, i’ve been wrestling for 15 years, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for 8, and boxed since middle school. Before you make an assumption because someone is 244 lbs, sit back, look in the mirror, and realize the best part of you ran down your moms leg only to end up as a brown stain on the matress. It’s butt-hurt a******* like you that make me sick. Do you honestly think my comment was meant as a serious one? Maybe you should ask Santa Claus for a sense of humor for Christmas because you apparently lack one. Good day my little keyboard warrior.

spictacular Says, in 12-8-2012 at 11:32:38 from    

Maybe I just lack a “sense of humor”, but I think all the naysayers are and critics are far more damaging for this kid’s future than anything he may face in the ring or training. Personally I see a kid who is obviously talented and driven to do what he loves. He’s already accomplished more in his 13 years than most do with there whole lives. And all anyone has to say is that he’s already condemned to a life of brain damage and destruction of his body? Is it that hard to admire a boy working to achieve his dreams?

p*********** Says, in 12-8-2012 at 11:33:47 from    

TheKungFuLowKick : i’m not hating on anyone…just stating a fact that you would realize if you had ever sparred in your life…

Polat Alemdar Says, in 12-9-2012 at 09:13:12 from    

Soon he will be shaking with Parkinson’s disease… He needs balance in life… Dont push your limits too early in life…

Joshua Says, in 12-12-2012 at 15:11:34 from    

Wow people, do you guys realize that you guys are making these ridiculous comments from behind a computer screen? You aren’t even giving Reshat a fair chance to even reach his prime. Statistics say that a fighter isn’t even in their prime until they are in their mid to late 20’s (early 30’s at the latest). And seriously, enough with the f****** argument that he is condemned to suffer from brain trauma for the rest of his life. Hell, I’ve done competitive martial arts (mostly Olympic Tae Kwon Do) for over 13 years (14 in January), and if you have ever seen the way TKD fighters go at it, then you’d be surprised. I’ve taken a hell of a lot of punishment over my career, but that does NOT mean I am going to end up with Parkinson’s disease, and that sure as hell does not mean I am going to be like Freddy Roach, even though I hope to be just half of the man he is. So, when you comment on another video or post involving my good friend Reshat, you better get your facts straight, so thank you, F*** you, and have a great day bitches!

jp56 Says, in 1-19-2013 at 20:55:00 from    

my god is he talented at this age I wonder what he will be like in his twenties and about all this arguing about head injuries,It has a slim chance of happening while wearing protective headgear and the opponent wearing gloves

jp56 Says, in 1-19-2013 at 20:59:41 from    

also I have sparred in full contact MMA, boxing,kickboxing,tae kwon do for nearly 13 years I have not oce ever concieved a head injury once in this time

repyour732hood Says, in 2-5-2013 at 19:40:28 from    

What this kid is doing is far better than what a lot of teens are doing (boredom, drugs, unprotected sex, drinking behind their parent’s back, etc.) but I do agree with some of the people on this forum. The amount of pressure this kid is taking to the dome will do one of two things before reaching 40, it will seriously impair some of his cognitive abilities or die from a cerebral edema. Hey, Bruce Lee was also a prodigy but he also died at 32. You have so many fights in you. Hope this kid the best and that he will reach his fighting prime without suffering from serious mental health repercussions.

cody smith Says, in 3-15-2013 at 22:53:40 from    

hello i would like to fight reshat anytime anywhere… try and help me get the word out

doomerson Says, in 4-2-2013 at 09:47:38 from    

the kid is good but our dojo has a few kids that train just as hard, multiple canadian champs… including a 10 year old 5 foot 1 inch 120pounder that hits like a adult and a 4 1/2 foot 100pound female that is one of the best stand up fighter i have seen…
the next generation of fighters will be tough, sklled and ready to change the fight game…

Dante Says, in 8-25-2013 at 07:12:37 from    

this kid is a beast fighter, hes probably the best, you niggas just hatin. on the other hand if it was me vs. him i’d probably win because my fighting style is just more powerful. my sensei wants me to sparr a prodigy, because she thinks if i can make it long with him i could beat most kids. she wont let me participate in anymore matches cuz she thinks its wrong to fight someone you know is far weaker than you. most of my opponents are weak.

Oliver Says, in 10-12-2013 at 08:57:45 from    

he will soon discover girls and he will stop train ing as hard and all the training will go to waste :C

ilir beluli Says, in 1-2-2014 at 10:31:45 from
