Does anyone here know about chessboxing?I read and search it in the internet and it does exist. Its a combination between boxing and chess into one action. Chess take the event  in a round and boxing in the other round - these requires a lot of hardwork between the two composition - the body strenght and mental strength. If you were the player for this would you stand for all time in the end?

When I first saw a website about chessboxing, I thought it was a joke website.  But failing to see any jokes on the page, I googled "chessboxing" to find that it is indeed a real sport.  A round of boxing followed by a round of chess, followed by another round of boxing and another round of chess, etc.  Sounds like it should be a joke, but it's not.

 I guess if you get frustrated with your opponent beating you at chess, you can try beating the crap out of him in the next round.

unfortunately not, because if you lose at chess, you lose the whole competition and there will be no further round of boxing :)

I think I'll stay with just chess ...

It was my understanding that chessboxing is several rounds of boxing mixed with several rounds of chess, and they judge the winner based on the number of rounds of chess or boxing won.

Shot-glass chess boxing. Because getting punched in the head doesn't impair your chess skills enough.
