Hi everyone!

I am writing these few lines because I want to realize my dream: to become the world Chessboxing champion!

Yes Yes chessboxing! It's a hybrid sport mixing boxing and chess! Here is a short video to present the concept!

To summarize, we alternate 3 minutes of chess and 3 minutes of boxing with one minute rest until knockout or checkmate!


I discovered this sport a few years ago and I thought it was my chance to become world champion! I practice chess since the age of 4 and started fighting at the age of 15. I know it's in my blood!



For the first time in the young history of Chessboxing, a world tournament will take place in Kolkata, India, between April 11th and 16th ... I intend to go there and win it in the -66kg category (I'm 1m75).
I am currently undefeated with 4 wins in 4 fights in the world of chessboxing!

Having no sponsor (still searching but none chessboxing fighter has gotten sponsorship so far) you are my hope!

I will make sure to do some facebook live for example so you can follow the fights and I will also keep you informed of all that happens!

 


Goals

To achieve this goal I need 1300 euros.

Indeed, having already a substantial student loan to pay my studies in business school (-55,000 euros), I can not insure this travel at my own expense!

I have evaluated this dream:

Transport:
Return flight tickets: 870 euros
Return by taxi from the airport to the hotel: 40 euros

Cost of living:
Hotel for competitors + breakfast: 50 euros / day
Complementary food competitors: 15 euros / day
Knowing that I will arrive on the 1th : 6x (50 + 15) = 390 euros

There will be other expenses such as passport, vaccine or website commission but I will cover them.

I will never be thankful enough for all the people who will help me realize this dream, and I promise not to return without the belt!

Me!
Given that I am working for the sncf (national French train company), I am able to move freely in France! So if you live in the country, I will come to thank you in person and teach you how to play Chess as well as the basics of boxing! And why not a demonstration of chessboxing with you!
