Was enyone else aware that Chess Boxing was a sport?

FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions

- So how does chessboxing work?

Chessboxers go through alternating four-minute long rounds of chess and three-minute boxing rounds with a one-minute break in between. A maximum total of 11 rounds are fought out—six rounds of chess and five rounds of boxing. The fight begins with a round of chess. Each player has a respite of 12 minutes during the game of chess, which means the maximum duration of the whole chess game is 24 minutes. A K.O. or checkmate can lead to an early win, and the fight can also be cut short if a player exceeds the chess time limit or the referee decides the fight has to be aborted. If the game of chess ends with a tie, it is settled with the points earned in the boxing rounds. If the boxing fight ends with a tie, the player who had black on the chessboard wins.

- Chess and boxing… how does that go together?

Chessboxing is the ultimate challenge for both the body and the mind. More and more contemporary athletic disciplines are characterised by multifaceted challenges. It’s comparable to a biathlon, as one example. Extreme physical stress is combined with a huge mental challenge. Chessboxing is a bit more radical than a biathlon, but through targeted training, the body can be prepared for matches just as well as it can for a biathlon. The alteration between boxing and playing chess represents the biggest challenge.

- When was the first-ever chessboxing fight and when was the WCBO founded?

The first official chessboxing fight ever to be held was the Middleweight World Championship between Iepe the Joker and Luis the Lawyer on the 14th of November 2003 at the Paradiso in Amsterdam. Iepe the Joker won the match after a dramatic fight in the 11th and last round when Luis the Lawyer exceeded his time limit in chess. Shortly before this championship, the WCBO was founded.

- What is the goal of the WCBO?

Our primary objective is the official dissemination of chessboxing as a self-contained, internationally recognised athletic discipline. The cornerstone for out goal has been laid with the founding of the first Chess Boxing Club of Berlin. In addition, we also support initiatives for starting chessboxing clubs nationwide and abroad. Of course, we ultimately hope that chessboxing will one day become the supreme discipline of the Olympic games…

- What does the WCBO’s slogan mean—“Fighting is done in the ring and wars are waged on the board”?

With this slogan, we’re trying to promote aggression management. Fighting is simply done in the ring where certain fairness rules apply and where there’s a referee. Wars should be waged on the board, not in reality.

- How did the idea of chessboxing come about?

The idea originates from the comic Le froid eqateur (literally ‘cold equator’) by Enki Bilal. Chessboxing was initially conceived by the Dutch artist IEPE as an artistic performance in

I would think it would be hard to move your pieces with boxing gloves on.

This is not as impossible as it seems. A ten minute speedchess clock is a common game, and an experienced speed chess player can play a very sophisticated game in that time. And, play enough speed chess, and tje game beomes very instinctual; really more about position recognition than anything else. I presume that's how guys manage to play while getting hit in the head for 11 rounds.
