The 13 year old Alexandre Laverez who made a huge surprise by reaching 3rd place at Bandai Namco's official world Tekken tournament Global Championship 2013, will be entering SEA Major 2014. After he received sponsorship from a multimedia company called SMM Philippines.

I wish I could write more on this. But I didn't receive a lot of info on this news other than these photos.




But I do have some info on SEA Major. South East Asia Major is one of the region's most popular major fighting game tournaments which will be held in Singapore from 20th - 22nd June 2014. The major will feature USFIV, UMvC3, TTT2, BBCP, KOF 13, and Hearthstone. You can more info on SEA Major at their official site.


Update: Games in Asia got more details on this. Here's a little piece from the article.

SMM CEO and founder Dato Dr. Ricky Lim personally acknowledged Laverez and his sponsorship on the first day of SMM Cyberslam, announcing the teenagerís all-expenses-paid trip to SEA Major 2014 in Singapore.

According to SMMís web and gaming manager, Nico Nazario, a sponsorship for AKís trip to Las Vegas in EVO is also possible depending on how Laverez performs at the SEA Major.

I agree.

He's 13 years old. He turned 13 during the Global Championship 2013 finals weekend, which was around last October if I'm not mistaken. So he's still 13.
