Edit: Just noting that 10 year old Kreishh Gurbaxani seems to have made a bit of an impression in the qualifying for this (whilst skipping school!), reaching the final qualifying round. He's the son of Indian film actor Sanjay Gurbaxani and is being trained by ex-pro and twice Asian Champion Yasin Merchant.
