Hello everyone. This may be wrong place to ask for any support but i am in bad situation so i'll explain in my post now that whats going on and why i try to get any kind of sponsorship.A guy on some other forum directed me here in hope some people could help. Exacly after 4 years or so my friend suggested me to watch Cro Cops Documentary movie which i didnt accepted at first. One night i was bored and started to watch,that was the moment i fall in love with this sport. I made of my garage gym for myself to train solo,made one bag and started with training. Unfortunately in my town where i live we dont have any combat sport to go and learn something,so my coach was youtube, no joke. I was watching and trying to do same,i knew nothing but i had dream to be fighter. Nobody was near me to say "Hey,you are doing this right,or change it this wont work" till once. After year and half of self training there was one tournament i saw on facebook. I have asked promoter if i could get chance to see what i can do,is this for me. He accepted me and asked name of my gym. My answer was not what he expeced,i am training alone in my gym,i wont have anyone in my corner but i really wish to have chance to fight. As he said there was 4 more people from "Street" who tried to join it but he only accepted me. I Fought Romanian guy who had everything i every wanted,and he lost by decision. That promoter (now my coach) invited me in their gym to come and traing , i'll have everything i need to became a good fighter,champion. After speaking with father he gaved me some help,but not for long. Their gym is 35km far from my house,so i had to pay to go there and train. At begining it was 3 times weekly,after 2 months i went to National Championship and took Silver medal, i didnt lost in final match cuz it didnt happend.. i was injuried. 2011 i had 7 fights. 6 wins and one loss after 6 months of training. Then everything in my world crushed. I had Brain stroke in November and my left side of body was paralized,it was because of my heart. I had hole in my heart,and needed open heart surgery asap. In February 2012. I had open heart surgery and long pause from this sport. I though i'll lose motivation in all this,and everything , you know. It was really bad year for me, open heart surgery is no joke. Before it happend i was speaking with doctor and told him,if i wont be able to continue with sport and fighting i do not accept to have surgery,i'll continue with my training like this and if fall again,it will be God's wish. After one year of pause my coach found me job,it was time to start with some trainings. I was going for it and after that,work. I was working as security guard in Night clubs. My day was like this, 17:00 (preparation for training)
18:00 ( I had bus to go on training 35km far from my hometown)
19:00 ( I Arrive in gym)
20:00 (My training begins till 21:30) Shower and then work.
From 22:00 to 03:00 am i am working,and i had to wait outside till 07:00 am for bus,doesnt matter was there raining,snow or fine weather.
I had 25 euros per night (Thats exacly how much i needed per one week to go in gym and train) Didnt had any extra money for food or something else to buy.
I had already 3 fights after open heart surgery and all that bad things what happend to me. won 2 and lost one. That one i lost was robery in K1 national championship but you know it had to happend once.
I got no more money for Bus to go and train the only thing i need. We lost job,Night club is closed like one month ago. I owe like 150 euros now cuz i wanted to continue with trainings,but wasnt thinking how will i give it back. And now it all stops cuz i dont have work. Its hard really in my country to find some job,and train. People doesnt understand your situation. I tried here to find some sponsors,but people being people,they just care for soccer. Individual sports are not supported here,so people think they will put money in dust. I do not ask to get money and buy food,go party or stupid things. I just need to pay bus. 5 euros per day,25 weekly. Monthly i would need 100 so thats what im looking for. I am asking all good people who could help me,to PM and we can discuss. I am willing to accept any request they have,cuz i am in that kind of position,all i want is to continue my training. We are not fighting only in my country,we go outside. I have been so far in Slovakia,Croatia,Romania. Hope you dont think i am lazy idiot who is sitting home all day doing nothing,i am searching for jobs cuz i know what is my goal,but in my town is like,impossible to get something normal. Sometimes i do work,but thats once per week and its not enough to pay bus. ANY help will be good in this moment for me,really. Thank you all for reading,and hope i could find any sponsor if thats possible nowdays. Here is email to contact me : sasho.123@hotmail.com

I am being honest and wouldnt really lie ,this is my story. 

Thank you Crush Crawfish, this is my last fight. In May we were in Croatia for some Tournament,but unfortunately my opponent didnt wanted to fight me. 

I also forgot to say,if there will be somebody to help me , he also help me in competition we have in our gym , best fighter of year 2013 will go in Thailand for 1 month to improve his skills and everything you need to become better and better..   Here is link of Camp a best fighter will go . > http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1Nm9ZWYXQE 

He is owner of Champions Club organisation (German) I was honored to fight there,although my opponent was 8 kg heavier than me ,didnt expected deal and they wanted to cancel fight,but thank God they didnt. I won it and took money to pay a friend back i owed for Bus i needed.

Yes if  i get opportunity for work + training I only want a chance to have work somewhere outside from Serbia,i'll stand on my legs and go forward to reach top. My goal is to be best one day,and everything i have in my life i put in this. I have sister in Chicago,already before 2 years tried to move there but i couldnt pass because i dont have work more than 2 years (They want to be sure i'll be back after some time,and wont stay in their country)
