Russia: Beef and brains do battle in chess boxing tourney

Moscow witnessed a clash of both body and mind on Thursday as the popularity of 'Chess Boxing' continues to grow in Russia. Combatants exchanged blows and pawns in a bid to become king of the ring. The contest was part of the Chess Boxing Global Marketing (CBGM) and Chess Boxing World Organisation (CBWO).

Chess Boxing is a hybrid sport contested over 11 rounds that combines both the intellectual rigour required by chess as well as the physical endurance and technical skills required by boxing. Six of the rounds consist of three-minute-long chess matches while five of them are rounds of boxing.

At the event Iepe Rubingh, who is President of the World Chess Boxing Organisation, spoke about the sports growing popularity: There's organisations now from China, India, Iran, Russia, Italy, UK and the United States, he said. He also spoke about his desire to see Chess Boxing become an Olympic sport like every sport, he said, we also want to become Olympic and maybe in 14 years we can become Olympic ... we're trying hard.

The author of the idea of chess boxing is Enki Bilal, who described two boxers playing chess following a 12 round fight in his book 'Froid Equator.' It has also appeared in popular culture, including Wu-Tang Clan's 1993 track 'Da Mystery of Chessboxin.'

Chessboxing, official presentation (WCBO)

Fighting is done in the ring and wars are waged on the board.

Enfin un sport où je pourrais rétamer les pédés à lunettes qui m'éclatent moi roi en 2 minutes.
. Né dans l'esprit fertile d'Enki Bilal avec l'album Froid Equateur (1992), le chessboxing est devenu un sport à part entière, avec ses propres règles, ses championnats du monde et d'Europe, ses compétitrices et même son tout premier club, basé à Berlin depuis un an. (

Hooks and rooks: Watch the world’s toughest sport Chess Boxing LIVE from Berlin

The Intellectual Fight Club is hosting its exclusive 10th edition in Festaal nightclub with six brave fighters taking to the ring, ready for a bruising in the bout and on the board.
Three fistfights and three tactical tussles… but there can only be one checkmate, one knockout and one grandmaster.
Chessboxing combines two of the world’s oldest sports in a pure, out-and-out test of mind and muscle power, with competitors battling it out in back-to-back three minute rounds of chess and boxing until one victor emerges.
Although the sport was once considered an art form, it has quickly developed into a competitive hybrid everywhere from Germany to India, the UK to Russia, with rivals in different weight classes fighting for up to 11 consecutive rounds, starting with chess.
In spite of attempts to bring chessboxing to the masses, mainstream broadcasters have largely ignored its huge potential, leaving it to promoters and clubs to popularise the sport.
One of its most famous champions, Nikolay ‘the Siberian Express’ Sazhin, boasts an impressive Elo rating of 1911 making him a Class A chess player with a punch to match.
