Chess boxing is a hybrid sport that combines two other sports: chess and boxing.
Two players play alternating rounds of fast chess and boxing until one wins by checkmate or knockout.

It is also possible to win by time penalty as in normal chess, and by boxing decision if there is a draw in the chess round

Chessboxing is particularly popular in the United Kingdom, India, Finland, and Russia
Chessboxing was invented by Enki Bilal(French comic book artist) in 1992 and adapted by Dutch performance artist Iepe Rubingh as an art performance and has subsequently grown into a competitive sport.

The first chessboxing competition took place in Berlin in 2003. That same year, the first world championship fight was held in Amsterdam.
A match consists of 11 alternating rounds of chess and boxing, starting and ending with chess.
Each round lasts three minutes, followed by a one-minute break. The chess rounds are played under time control, with a total of nine minutes allotted to each player and no increment added to either player's clock after a move is made.
