Default Chess Boxing


Chess Boxing, a hybrid sport which combines boxing with chess in
alternating rounds, is growing in popularity. Inspired by fictional
depictions of the sport in French comic book artist Enki Bilal's
graphic novel, Froid Équateur, Dutch artist Iepe Rubingh brought the
concept to life in 2001. Governed by the World Chess Boxing
Organisation whose motto is "Fighting is done in the ring and wars are
waged on the board", matches consist of up to eleven alternating
rounds of boxing and chess with a one minute break between rounds.
