Bobby 'The Beast' Burgess - Junior BJJ Champion
Age: 9 Years Old
Competes in: BJJ (MMA in the near future)
Hometown: Manchester - England
Team(s): Henshall BJJ / Lucio Sergio BJJ / Manchester Top Team
Key Accolade: Triple NAGA Champion - Germany 2021
At just 9 years of age and around 3 foot tall, you could be forgiven for initially overlooking this little guy, but anyone who takes the time to do a quick Google search will reveal a small library of jaw dropping, explosive and skilled performances that would overshadow most competitors coming even remotely close to his age category, in fact, I know many adults that would love to be able to move on the mats half as well as Bobby does.
Having trained since the age of around 4 years old and given his consistent dominance within the BJJ scene he's appropriately (yet almost ironically given his tiny stature) been nicknamed 'The Beast'. However his accomplishments on the world stage thus far only enforce this; he is an IBJJF English and European champion, a two time World Elite and European champion, a triple NAGA champion and that doesn't even cover half of it... he literally has 45 GOLD medals already, with a current win streak of 37 medals and 2 title belts... and he's looking to make the move into MMA as he gets older too. If you ever wished you had the opportunity to get involved with a future world beater then this is your chance, we believe he is as close to a "sure thing" as you can get in today's trying times.
Deyvon Butlin - Junior Tennis Champion
Age: 9 Years Old
Competes in: Tennis
Hometown: Huddersfield - England
Team: Thongsbridge Tennis Club / Yorkshire County

You might find yourself asking "Why is Deyvon represented by Sponsorite, an agency that focuses on combat sports and combat sports athletes?" Well the answer to that is simple, we believe he has the potential to become a superstar and world leading talent in the sport of tennis.
In addition he is the son of ex-professional boxer and combat sports referee 'Big' Andy Butlin, and nephew to UKMMA pioneer, Team Quannum head coach and world renowned commentator, Ian 'M16' Butlin. The kid literally has combat sports royalty blood running through his veins, so why wouldn't we want to help?!
Deyvon started playing tennis in 2019 at Huddersfield Lawn Tennis and Squash Club, he was quickly selected for Yorkshire and scored wins against both Lancashire and Cheshire. Having won several tournaments throughout Britain, and currently training upto 10 hours each week, he is now taken out of school two days a week, as part of the futures programme, at his new club Thongsbridge Tennis Club. He has developed into an exceptionally high level player in his age categories extremely quickly and hopes to be competing at regional then national competitions very soon.
