16 year old boy vs. 25 year old man – someone goes down
The sport of Mixed Martial Arts has been around a lot longer than most people believe, however; it was introduced to the world on a cold evening in Denver, Colorado on November 12, 1993, and called the Ultimate Fighting Championship. The premise was beautiful in its simplicity: to simply answer the question of which martial art is most effective. This wasn’t meant to take away from individual martial arts tournaments such as Karate, Tae Kwon Do, or even boxing matches but was aimed to answer the aforementioned question.
Fast forward over 20 years and we now have a sport that jockeys for top position in popularity in many countries. Although the sport has evolved, the original question that was set out to be answered is still one that intrigues people to this day, however; the sport of boxing, the “gentlemen’s sport” if you will, is beginning to rebound in its popularity.
This is evident in organized events that are not sanctioned or commissioned by any governing body, however; they do abide by very specific rule sets and even have referees in place. Seeing as there is no regulatory body, an occasional match comes along that strikes at the curiosity of all combat sports fans such as the match found below: a 16-year-old boy vs. a 25-year-old man.
In what would seemingly be a gross mismatch it is clearly evident that the two young adults fighting are not your average street fighter. They have both engaged in at least a little bit of technical boxing training which makes this matchup even more intriguing.
So check out the video below to see what happens when a grown man takes on a 16-year-old adolescent.
