“We are proud to support Aleksandr’s journey as he represents not only his country but all those who dare to aim high and push their limits like a real Pro.”

Retail FX and CFD brokerage firm FxPro has announced the signing of a multi-year sponsorship deal with Aleksandr Chizov, the accomplished professional mixed martial artist from Latvia.

The MMA fighter is a four-time Latvian champion and three-time Baltic champion who has garnered the titles of European and World Champion and is now setting his sights on the PFL Championship, currently competing in the PFL European Lightweight tournament.

The 25-year-old athlete made a significant stride towards his ambition by clinching a victory against Spain’s Acoidan Duque in the quarterfinals held in Berlin on July 8th, which secured his position in the semifinals.

The semifinals are scheduled to take place on September 30th in Paris, where Aleksandr Chizov will face John Mitchell from Ireland. FxPro wants fans and supporters to follow Aleksandr’s journey as he prepares for his upcoming fights.

The PFL tournament’s final showdown is set for December 8th in Dublin, Ireland.

“Chizov represents all those who dare to aim high and push their limits like a real Pro”

Ilya Holeu, Chief Product Owner & CMO at FxPro, said: “Aleksandr is an exceptional athlete who has achieved significant milestones at a young age. His continuous growth, dedication, and resilience align perfectly with FxPro’s values. We are proud to support Aleksandr’s journey as he represents not only his country but all those who dare to aim high and push their limits like a real Pro.”

Aleksandr Chizov commented on the FxPro sponsorship: “The backing of a globally recognised brand like FxPro gives me an extra push to perform at my best. This collaboration is not just a sponsorship; it’s a partnership where success is a shared goal”.

The multi-year agreement exemplifies FxPro’s commitment to supporting outstanding talent, the global FX broker stated. It also reflects the company’s innovative spirit, embodied by Chizov, who has showcased his dedication, discipline, and strategic skills in the MMA arena.
