The ultimate sport? Chess boxing?

Posted by sanityinjection on July 16, 2008

It’s pretty much what it sounds like. The players alternate between rounds of chess and boxing until one of three things happens: somebody gets knocked out, somebody gets checkmated, or the chess game draws, in which case the person with more points in the ring is the victor.

I am fascinated by this fledgling sport. It’s the ultimate combination of brains and brawn. I can’t imagine trying to play a chess game after having taken punches to the face. It seems obvious that most boxers and most chess players would be incapable of competing.

    Ding – Ding .. Checkmate! This is one crazy idea, that honestly is destined for “celebrity” reality TV. I’m looking for a Danny Bonaduce match in show one.
