Hot Air Photo Stories

Sherif Younan “Junior”

What’s the difference between Sherif Younan Jr. and other 13 year old boys? He is a boxing prodigy; he has won 3 dozen trophies and has won most tournaments against other competitors his age. He is also currently the Junior Olympic Champion, which he won in the 2007 Olympics.

Younan, a.k.a “Sugar Boy”, who got that nickname because he is often seen eating candy, and “Junior” is not modest about his talents. He was only 15 months old when he climbed and crawled out of his baby carriage into a boxing ring. Here’s a video and a few pictures of the 13 year old wearing the one and only “Hot Air”!
