Chessboxing is a hybrid sport which combines boxing with chess in alternating rounds.

Several chessboxing events have taken place around the world including in Iceland and Siberia although in recent years the UK has emerged as the most important centre for chessboxing.

Competitors may win by a knockout, achieving a checkmate, by the judges' decision, or if their opponent's twelve minutes of chess time is exceeded.If a competitor fails to make a move during the chess round, he is issued a warning and he must move within the next 10 seconds.
