World Chess Boxing Championships

Wow. I’d never heard of Chess boxing and just happened to stumble onto it on Youtube.

Chess boxing alternates speed chess with rounds of boxing. So you can win with a good old fashioned checkmate, or you can win by knocking someone out. So you’d put equal time into your right cross training as you would your opening gambit.  I love it!

I suck at chess and I’m probably even worse at boxing, so this may not be my ticket to glory, but this made my day. What a crazy hybrid!

This is quite possibly the most awesome sport I have ever seen!

If only I was any good at chess or boxing!
