Let’s be honest.

A preamble here is largely pointless, so I won’t bother.

Because chess boxing.

Chess! Boxing!

I know what you’re thinking though. I say ‘almost exactly’ in the headline, because clearly there’s one way that this sport needs to be improved, in order to match the divine imagery conjured up by its name: There needs to be boxing after every move! None of this faffin about, waiting for the rounds to change. Just chess move, chess move -> punch, punch, chess move, chess move -> punch, punch. Now that’s chessboxing.

Oh, and—hang on. One second. I think I’ve found two faces, the combination of which sum up my exact reaction to this sport.




Yeah, that’s about right.
