Fury erupted last night following schoolboys as young as 8-years-old caught on film cage-fighting at a social club in Preston Lancs, UK.
Customers could be heard cheering the young fighters on while supping pints of beer and enjoying watching the school boys bashing the living daylights out of one another behind the cage without wearing padding or headgear.
A extra special treat laid was a half-dressed ring girl parading around between the youngsters three-minute rounds.
At one stage during the ticket only event at Greenlands Social Club one of the 8-year-old boys was forced to submit in tears.
But while many are furious at the thought of young school boys taking part in the violent sport of cage fighting, organiser and professional cage-fighter Steven Nightingale, 28, bragged that the event was “extremely good”, and insisted that the sport was “safe and growing in popularity from children as young as five-years-old.”
Not the same could be said for the Vicar of Preston who blasted:
“It should not be a public spectacle to see children bashing the daylight out of each other”, and one local gym boss who runs kickboxing and self defence classes added: “Why were the parents allowing them to do that? Itâ€™s like a circus!”
