As the smell of beer and sweat starts to build, a strange chant rumbles through the venue: ‘CHESS! CHESS! CHESS!’ They are here to witness chessboxing, the ultimate game of brain-versus-brawn where players quickly flicker between rounds in the boxing ring and bouts at the chessboard. To take home the glory, they must their coerce their opponent into a knockout or batter them into checkmate.” Huck Magazine takes you inside the ring to witness Chessboxing: the new craze where brain meets brawn.
