Boxedrez y referee cubano

Reinaldo Domínguez, referee cubano de boxedrez.

Tim Woolgar brought ChessBoxing to the UK about six months ago and set up the Great Britain Chess Boxing Organisation. "I was a chess player before... and a boxer. So it came together nicely," he says. "I was at a party and someone mentioned it. So I looked it up on the internet. I went to Germany, saw it live and I was hooked. I think with ChessBoxing, you're either hooked or you think it’s insane. When I came back to UK, I wanted to take part in ChessBoxing, but the only way it was going to happen was if I organised it." Tim fought/played on the night, but lost to a checkmate to one Konrad Rikardson in round five.
