Default The future Matt Hughes?

A 9-year-old Maryland boy is attempting to set a world record in weight-lifting, MyFoxDC.com reported Monday.

Aaron Brooks of Sykesville, Md., a seven-time national champion wrestler who has more than 300 wins, will reportedly compete to break the world record in the bench press on June 12 in New Jersey.

The current record for 8- and 9-year-olds in the 88-pound weight class is 77 lbs. Brooks is training to lift between 90 and 100 lbs., according to the station.

Brooks reportedly told MyFoxDC.com that his key to success is "a lot of practice and a lot of time put into it."
