This tiny seven-year-old boxer packs some punch and her sparring and jabs have earned her a massive following on Instagram. 

The pint-sized Ruby Tucker first went viral when a video of her training with her dad Kijuan was viewed more than 3 million times. 

Tucker and her dad train four times a week and according to the little champ-to-be, spending so much time with her dad is partly why she loves it. 

"I get to spend a lot of time with my dad and I get to beat him up sometimes," Ruby joked in an interview. 

Watch the little dynamo in action in the video above.
