Lindemann then opened up to the actress, explaining that he had suffered a double loss after his father and grandfather both passed away in the space of six months.
Du-Pont relayed his story on her Instagram page saying his spirit and dedication stirred her to find out more.
"This kid has lost his father and grandfather in the space of six months...Instead of giving up on life and feeling sorry for himself he is becoming a dedicated boxer and all round fitness freak...in this he has found healing.
"This is a lesson to us as adults. Don't let your pain destroy you, let it give you power to become stronger. God will only give you a burden you can handle."
