I’ve always believed that I’m that one who would always be ready to square up, but a little 8-year-old boxer has me questioning my life choices, especially if anyone asking me to square up has even half her talent.


Little Miss Babybug (babybu9 on Instagram) has become an internet sensation after videos of her throwing hands and working out have gone viral. And holy crap, this little girl is strong and fast.


This child is seriously my life goal. I want to be just like her when I grow up. Seriously, she can probably kick all our collective asses and not even break a sweat.

Not only is the 58-pound girl wonder pretty much a real-life Superkid, but she’s also inspirational.

“Champions aren’t made in the ring, they are merely recognized there. What you cheat on in the early light of morning will show up in the ring under the bright lights,” one of her Instagram posts is captioned, quoting boxing legend Joe Frazier as she shows off her jump-rope skills.


This honestly just makes me want to hit the gym, eff shit up, live my best life and be iconic.
