Not that i advocate this,but at an age comparable to the thai some enter the ring.Mostly demo's for the youngest but also proper fights and not until recently the rulehas been installed for not allowing headcontact but that has'nt always been the case and with some associations still is'nt.

this kid has an insane amounts of fights though, even for dutch standards......and he is in the highest grade of high school as well. next year he'll go to university

so that's even more impressive......he fights and studies non stop
So do a lot of midget boxers.

But homeboy has those first world problems, so it's even more impressive.

Come on man why do you have to be so disrespectful?

The situation in Thailand is entirely different than in the Netherlands. Camps receive a higher percentage than is usual in the Netherlands, but they have also taken care of fighters since they were young. They provided them with food, a home, a way out basically. You cannot compare this to a Dutch teenager who starts kickboxing twice a week because he needs a hobby, does a few fights after a year and finds out he has talent and starts training more and becomes a professional.

A trainer and a camp is a lot more to a fighter in Thailand than in the Netherlands.

And managers taking advantage of fighters happens in the Netherlands as well. There are tons of stories about Thom Harinck and Johan Vos ripping fighters off.
