Chess boxing, or chessboxing, is a hybrid fighting sport (or a hybrid board game) that combines two traditional pastimes: chess, a cerebral board game, and boxing, a physical sport. The competitors fight in alternating rounds of chess and boxing. Chessboxing was invented by Dutch performance artist Iepe Rubingh.[1][2] What was initially only thought to be an art performance quickly turned into a fully developed competitive sport.[3] Chessboxing is particularly popular in Germany, Great Britain, India and Russia.
