Karl Ouch talks about his upcoming chess festival in Serbia, Chess Magic. We find out if the WCBA Light Heavyweight World Champion will be defending his belt any time soon and what he got up to in Italy instead of fighting in the WCBO world championships (please drink responsibly!), including sparring with World Heavyweight Champion Sergio Leveque. Karl visited Giuseppe ‘Mezzaluna’ Grasso in Catania, Sicily – now brothers in the chessboxing fraternity. Karl talks about how he became friends with Toby ‘Slowby’ White and slept on his couch even before they fought each other.
Karl will be joined at the festival by GM Vladislav Tkachiev and GM Murtas Kazhgaleyev on the 17th of April 2022. If you would like to attend Chess Magic in Serbia please get in touch with Karl and email: email@example.com
