Check out how it works:
The matches work like this: competitors alternate between three-minute rounds of boxing and four-minute rounds of speed chess with one-minute breaks in between to get the gloves off and hunker down at the chess table. The winner is determined by knockout, checkmate, or referee decision.
Hilarious. I’ve never heard of it until recently, but the more I read about it, the more convinced I am this is the best biathlon I’ve ever seen.
Any chess-boxing fans on here? Can this become part of the World’s Strongest Man tourney, which my friend Mike introduced me to in a bar in Boston?
