When you think about the most dangerous presidents on Earth, you’d instantly assume Donald Trump or Vladimir Putin would take that award. Put them in a ring with this guy and they would NOT survive…
Throughout modern history, we’ve seen a fair share of absolute psychopaths and dictators reach presidency in various nations. Perhaps the most recent, and arguably the weirdest, was outwardly racist and money-driven billionaire Donald Trump.
Although in terms of being a global threat, power leaders Trump and Kim Jong Un might be considered the most dangerous, in hand-to-hand combat, they are far from the top. That award has to go to Battulga Khaltmaa.
Put plainly, this guy is a legitimate certified beast. Voted into office in Mongolia in April 2017, Battulga Khaltmaa is definitely the most dangerous president in the world right now.
Battulga Khaltmaa is Certified
More than just a big guy who works out, Battulga Khaltmaa is a Sambo champion. During the 1983 World Sambo Championships in Kiev, Khaltmaa won gold in the -52KG division. In case you don’t know about Sambo, it’s a mix of Judo and catch wrestling with striking.
As you will see from the video below, Battulga Khaltmaa is an absolute beast. At 55 years of age, the current Mongolian president is in fantastic shape:
Also winning the silver in the 1986 and 1990 World Sambo Championships, the incumbent Mongolian leader now helps train the future stars of the sport.
Under his guidance, Mongolian judoka Tuvshinbayar Naidan became an Olympic Judo Champion in Beijing 2008 and many other successful judokas that have become national heroes.
Thanks to these successes judo has become one of the most popular sports in Mongolia. Just how did this national sports hero come to be? Rather typically of the Mongolian people, his story is one of tragedy and loss.
After his family lost everything in the flood of the Tuul River in 1966, Battulga grew up on the streets of Yarmag. After leaving secondary school, he began to pursue wrestling.
His father was a coach of Mongolian traditional wrestling and thus Battulga grew up wrestling. Battulga was a member of the Mongolian National wrestling team in 1979-1990. Battulga won the world cup championship in Ulaanbaatar in 1989.
Wrestling allowed Battulga Khaltmaa to travel internationally at a period, when travel abroad for Mongolians was not allowed. Battulga was awarded an Merited Sportsmen of Mongolia in 1995, thereafter being selected as the Chairman of Mongolian Judo Federation in 2006. Under Battulga’s leadership at the Judo Federation, Mongolian judokas became Olympic Champions for the first time in history.
Even after winning the world championship in 1983 and continuing to compete, Battulga Khaltmaa was broke. He began sewing and selling jeans on the streets, but soon became a millionaire after starting a business called Genco.
He was voted into office last year with 50.6% of the votes in the run off. The first election settled in the run off during Mongolian history.
