If they go somewhere else let them- any success he enjoys will be down to you anyway.
I Agree with this. Don't send the kid to the wolves, because he will have southpaws like myself who have been training like dogs for the past two years hungry like wolves sparring pros/ams/open/novice/subnovice boxers. On a serious note, you need to be honest with the kid and his dad, and set them straight, tell them HE IS NOT READY, and he can be seriously hurt by his biased opinion on his son's abilities.
