    ****, here where I live, I wouldn't let my kid box. They got kids that are 12 years old fighting 30 year old guys.

    What type of **** is that?

    16 for actual fights. Wouldn't even consider an earlier age.

    Under six they won't learn, they're just playing. After that you could learn them how to punch.

    The one in red headgear is 11 years old. He's been sparring for a while, by the looks of it. Notice they don't punch that hard yet, so it's unlikely they'll end up with a concussion.
