A warehouse in Mesa is a training ground for twelve-year-old Delton Kaufmann, who dedicates his free time to ensuring his champion title in wrestling. According to the boy, he is in love with the sport and wants to be a professional MMA fighter.
Kaufmann was born twelve years ago in Mesa, where, according to his mother, during his birth, Delton made his father faint. As a premonition of the child’s future, his mother Tanya Kaufmann said he was interested in the sport from an early age. In spite of her protest, she soon realized Delton was adamant.
His father Justin Kaufmann explained that when he was three years old, he used to teach the boy moves. According to him, at that time, people considered him a crazy father. Now a twelve-year-old Delton is a triple-crown champion in wrestling. He has already been three times kid Pan American Champion. His recent victory was in Rome where he won the title IMMAF World Cadet Champion.
The child champion explains that his love for wrestling is similar to the passion for baseball. He is interested in it and trains hard for two hours a day. Smilingly, he reveals his wrestling name — The Real Thaiphoon. Delton presently trains with Heavy Weight Champion Ryan Bader, also known as Belator.
Bader explains that kids like Delton are unique and rare. According to him, Delton trains hard as if he was a heavyweight champion. Bader added that the kid champion had a great career ahead of him.
While his Mixed Martial Arts sport often gets massive knockouts, the children have different rules, and the headgear is mandatory. Besides that, the rivals cannot use elbows or knees to hit the opponent in the head. Delton explains that he has only one dream, and that is to be known worldwide.
