Chessboxing is a hybrid sport which combines boxing with chess in alternating rounds.
Several chessboxing events have taken place around the world including in Iceland and Siberia although in recent years the UK has emerged as the most important centre for chessboxing. London has staged ten international tournaments since 2008. The sport began when Dutch artist Iepe Rubingh, inspired by fictional depictions by French comic book artist and filmmaker Enki Bilal, organized actual bouts. Chess boxing is now growing in popularity.Participants must be both skilled boxers and chess players, as a match may be won either way. (wikipedia)
