    Why not set the fight up through a promoter for amateur fights, those events have insurance and the 1000 can be put in the contract.

      This is the right way to do things.

      Although for a small promotion, you still want the money in an escrow up front, if you are flying from out of country.

      It is as easy as having a third party lawyer hold the prize money, or a third party escrow service, or if really trustworthy, the third party promoter, and then that third party releasing the winnings to the victor.

      Small promotions routinely stiff athletes, especially non-locals.

          Just make sure you eat a big lunch immediately before stepping into the cage.

          Also, you can get a cool $5,000 even if you lose if the fight is put together by WCK Muay Thai out in San Diego.

              Do you have any guarantee that this guy will actually be there and you won't come all the way to London for nothing?

                Can you imagine trying to get travel insurance for this trip?

                    3rd party escrow service is exactly what we're doing. I'm also working on a contract.

                    If I get hurt, I won't be able to fix it most likely. That said, I can do my job with most injuries.

                    As far as training, I'll be doing my own conditioning. I'll have to drop in at gyms that do free drop ins for skill work.

                        A lot of very legit amateur boxing gyms are less than $30 a month;

                        Not boxercise, but fighters gyms.

                        Also, check the local high school wrestling programs, and the local colleges for free or nearly free grappling clubs with legit facilitators.

                        I am not endorsing your fight as a good idea...

                          That was good advice, thank you. I don't hope you die anymore.

                            Then you probably should not fight, or spar, if you do not have medical insurance.

                            However...check into trip specific traveler's medical insurance that covers your medical treatment expenses while receiving medical treatment in the U.K.

                            Also, ask if the event will have onsite medical staff.

                            Comes in handy, and if they are having other fights at the event, it's a reasonable thing to expect / seek.

                              I'll be dying regardless, and so will you.

                              We all die.

                              It's part of what makes life precious and exciting.

                                Will do, I'm still ironing out the details. Odds are he dicktucks before any paperwork is signed.
