Sakari Lähderinne is the chessboxing World Champion in the 75 kg weight class. Having won gold in India (2018) and in Turkey (2019) he is considered to be the leading chessboxer in his division.

His fighter name ‘Sakkematti’ is a clever hybrid of his nickname ‘Sakke’ and of the Finnish word ‘checkmate’. This nice and relaxed fellow, who found the time to answer to a few questions truly knows how to think fast and hit hard.
