This 10-Year-Old Boxer Will Knock Your Socks Off

“JessZilla” packs a mean punch.

Jesselyn Silva, 10, possesses two lethal weapons — her hands. At just about 75 pounds and under 4’5” the New Jersey-native can hold her own in the ring. The New York Times followed the young boxing champion as she trains to rise in the ranks. As a girl in a contact sport, we watch Silva struggle to find peers to compete against that are both talented and not afraid of her might.

Accompanied by her father, Jesselyn trains through a pounding headache with her goal of the 2024 Olympics in mind. She shares that she has a “dream calendar” in which she tracks her progress to earning three gold medals. Her story is a testament to girls being able to achieve anything they put their minds to.
