ok so yesterday i was watching this show on discover chanel called recreation nation. ND THER was this thing on chess boxing. its basicaly a 4 min round of chess then the buzzer sounds and you put on gloves and box. i was like wtf!!!!! this has to be a kimick(sp?) but its real aperntly its kinda big in europe 2. thought and opinons.
personlay i think its stupid
stupid yes entertaining it sounds like a yes also
wow. i thought X-ARM was bad enough
Ha..I like it! You have to be smart, athletic, and tough all at the same time.
Chance of success: 0%
the guy that was on the show they said he was the number one ranked chess boxer in america but he is also the only chess boxer in america!
as far as succes goes in america yea right
I saw this on the news a few years ago so it's maintained a certain degree of popularity somehow.
That's bull shit funny...
I might have to try my hand at some drinking chess boxing this weekend...
How is that scored? What if person one gets the person two in Checkmate as the buzzer rings, but person one is KOed as soon as the boxing starts?
