Chess and boxing? Two great tastes that taste great together

There are times when I love this world. Discovering that there is such a "sport" as chess-boxing makes me love it even more. How awesome is a sport that was invented in a comic book and involves competitors alternating three-minute rounds of boxing and four-minute rounds of speed chess with time in between to get their gloves off and towel off. "The winner," says Time magazine, "is determined by knockout, checkmate or referee decision." Kafka would love this...


I say screw "Fight Club." Someone needs to make a movie about this RIGHT NOW!
