Chessboxing is a hybrid sport which combines the sport of Boxing with the game of Chess. A Chessboxing match is fought by alternating the match between rounds of Chess with Boxing.

Often referred to as a "Thinking mans contact sport."

Description
A match consists of up to eleven alternating rounds of boxing and chess. The match begins with a four-minute chess round. This is followed by two minutes of boxing, with rounds of chess and boxing alternating until the end. There is a one minute break between rounds. Speed chess is used, a form in which each player has a total of only twelve minutes for the whole game.

Dedication
Competitors may win by a knockout, achieving a checkmate, or if their twelve minutes of chess time is exceeded. If a competitor fails to make a move during the chess round, he is issued a warning and he must move within the next ten seconds. Repeated warnings may result in a disqualification. The players put on headphones during the chess portion so that they do not hear any shouted assistance from the audience. If the chess game reaches a stalemate, the boxing scores are used.
