ChessBoxing - Really and Serious?
Can you beleive there is a World ChessBoxing Organization and they have championship bouts? It is exactly what you think -chess and then boxing.
The concept is to combine a thinking sport with a fighting sport. This integration is intended to display brains and brawn. I guess that woulod make for the perfect man. So perhaps this is where women should hang out to find their future husband. Men with a strategic, organized way of thinking, yet in shape, gorgeous shoulders and tough man skills.
Chessboxing requires its athletes to compete in alternating rounds of chess and boxing. It begins with a round of chess, followed by a boxing round and then it repeats itself. The entire contest lasts for 11 rounds total, 6 of them chess amd 5 boxing. The chess rounds take 4 minutes, but there is 12 minutes on the chess timer. The boxing rounds are 3 minutes in length. The one minute break inbetween rounds is enough time for the competitors to change their gear.
The sports is judged by the following:
- exceedng the time limit
- retirement of an opponent in either the chess or boxing
- referee decision
- stalemates are determined by the hiring score of the opposite sport
