Of course this would be true. This will destroy the father/son bond, just like it did with the Mayweathers. I also agree with the earlier poster about too much muscle development at that age. He can learn the sport without working in it so strenuously. What's the hurry?

If the Eastern Euro system is so great than why do all the best slavic fighters like W. Klitschko and GGG abandon it as soon as they can and get American trainers.

Nobody cares about the amateurs.

Because that's where the money is

If the US was winning anything then you'd change your tune.

a bunch of grown ass men who are supposed to be boxing fans hating on a little kid that hasn't even finished puberty yet. This kid is an amateur star too. May he become a successful pro and beat your then favorite fighter's ass in front of your very own eyes.

hundereds of people his age have talents that unfortunately go by the ways side, as some one pointed out wait till his late teens and then see if the dedication is still there.

Brian Viloria
Nonito Donaire
Miguel Angel Garcia
Adrien Broner
Danny Garcia
Floyd Mayweather
Andre Ward
Bernard Hopkins etc etc


ALL came through the American system....seems America is still able to produce good boxers.

How many no.1 ranked fighters in their division has eastern europe produced in the past decade?

dude you're crazy, it's the am system that ****s up the americans, not the quality of training and fighters, ever notice how they still always outperform the euros when they turn pro, these same americans that were ousted in the 1st and 2nd round of the olympics go on to be world champs and successful pros whereas the medal winning euros stay am forever and when they turn pro they fade into obscurity. the americans have a style far better suited to the pros which is why they're still dominating in the pro ranks. Am boxing has turned into garbage, i'll never watch the olympics again, the last 2 were an embarrassment to the sport.

That is more indicative of recent changes in the sport than an assessment of the quality of US (pro) program. Amateur Boxing no longer resembles Boxing. It is a fencing match. It doesn't translate well to the pros. A pro style doesn't translate well to it.

This is why previous years' Olympic rosters read like a who-will-be-who in pro Boxing. Now? Who are the gold medalists and what have they done? The winners are a bunch of nobodies on the pro scene.
