This 7-Year-Old Girl From Kazakhstan Is A Boxing Phenom

As badass as the women in UFC are now, they’re only getting better as our generation encourages their daughters to participate in martial arts. Just take a look at Rustam Saadvakass’ 7-year-old daughter Evnika from Kazakhstan. He’s been training her boxing skills since she was 3 years old, and this is the result. So far!

We can only hope the girl picks up some sambo on her way to adulthood because it would be great to see her competing in mixed martial arts some day. Over the past 10 years, we’ve started to see the results of kids being trained from their youth in MMA instead of karate or tae kwon do or boxing, and it’s something special to behold. It’ll be great watching the influx of girls following the combat sports path blazed by the Ronda Rouseys and Joanna Jedrzejczyks of the world.
