What is Chessboxing

Chessboxing adds the thrills and spills of speed chess to the strategic and tactical challenges of traditional boxing, creating a mind-bending hybrid sport that has to be seen to be fully appreciated.

The ultimate battle of brain and brawn.  Two opponents play a round of speed chess followed by a round of boxing, with one minute in between rounds.  They continue to alternate between the two with the chess game becoming ever more challenging as the physical battle takes its toll.  The winner is decided by checkmate or knockout.
