Bonjasky shared his pride in his son and shared a photo of Dean signing his contract on Instagram.

He added the caption: “Proud of my son, player at West Ham.”

Dean has penned a two-year contract and is part of the Under-14s team.

The 13-year-old shares the same dream of becoming a footballer that his father once possessed.

Bonjasky, 48, also played football during his teenage years but quit the sport after breaking his leg.

He turned to kickboxing and quickly fell in love and was able to forge a long and successful career as a fighter.

The Dutchman is a three-time K-1 World Grand Prix heavyweight champion, winning the title in 2003, 2004, and 2008.

Bonjasky earned 78 wins in his career, 40 via knockout, and lost 20 fights.


After hanging up his gloves he opened up his own gym the “Bonjasky Academy”, where he helps youngsters get into kickboxing.

He also has two other children – Cassius and Skye.
