For those strong brains

The new sport that’s sure to sweep the nation: Chess Boxing, where contestants alternate between a round of chess and a round of boxing, up to 11 rounds. The chess portion follows FIDE rules while the boxing portion follows AIBA rules. Winners are determined on a points basis and special rules exist for blind or visually handicapped players (!).

You can view some pictures from an event, read the rules (PDF), or find out about the motivation behind chess boxing.

I wonder if this movie was an inspiration.
