If we have seen it once, we have seen it a thousand times…a son becoming protective of his mother when a man other than his father gets involved in a relationship with her. A single mother beginning to date again can be a very delicate situation when children are involved; especially when that child is a teenage boy with what appears to be fairly decent boxing skills.
In the video below we seem to be witnessing the tail end of a dispute that results in the mother’s boyfriend being asked to leave but refusing. On top of refusing to leave the property, the older man can also be heard telling the young 16-year-old that if the son swings on him then he will be forced to hurt him.
After a brief argument, it becomes clear to the young man that the older gentleman has no intentions of leaving so he decides that he will give him a little motivation. With a quick one-two, the young man wobbles the older man and follows up with two more crisp punches that send the man to the pavement.
When a woman, as well as her son, asks you to leave their property it is probably in your best interest to leave. This scenario is a lose/lose for the older man involved as if he retaliates, well, congratulations sir, you just beat up your love interest’s child, however; if you get knocked out, well, you just got knocked out by your girlfriend’s child. This just goes to show that a testosterone-filled teenage boy protecting his mother is not something that one should take lightly.
