Step into a Chessboxing ring, where brawn meets pawn and a checkmate is as powerful as an uppercut. Since 2003, the high octane world of Chessboxing has offered a bizarre fusion of chess and boxing.
“We bring a combination of the number one thinking sport with the number one fighting sport… 6 rounds of chess and 5 rounds of boxing”, says Chessboxing founder Iepe Rubingh. Most sports require brains as well as brawn; in Chessboxing they are pitted against each other.”Fighting and thinking at the same time, it’s very hard”, says a fan of the growing craze.
