    "The basic idea in chessboxing is to combine the no.1 thinking sport and the no.1 fighting sport into a hybrid that demands the most of its competitors – both mentally and physically.
    In a chessboxing fight two opponents play alternating rounds of chess and boxing. The contest starts with a round of chess, followed by a boxing round, followed by another round of chess and so on. In every round of chess the FIDE rules for a ´Blitz game´ apply, in every boxing round the AIBA rules apply with the following extensions and modifications: In a contest there shall be 11 rounds, 6 rounds of chess, 5 rounds of boxing. A round of chess takes 4 minutes. Each competitor has 12 minutes on the chess timer. As soon as the time runs out the game is over."

    This is obviously in favor of the professional boxer. He just needs to last 4 min in chess and then knock the living shit out of the opponent in the first round.

    This idea is stupid.
    unles they can combine say chess along with boxing
    then it would be a different idea..
    if you have two seperate events.. then i don't think it'll be too appealing
