In a chess boxing match two opponents play alternate rounds of chess and boxing. The contest usually starts with a round of chess, and then a boxing round, then another round of chess, etc.
So if you enjoy games where you can observe strategy and tatics, then this sport that combines both may be right for you. I think i’ll just stick to playing chess. My body takes a pretty good beating by just playing a long, tough, fought out game of chess. Of course there are no visible battle wounds left from a game of chess, and the emotional aspect from a loss is usually bottled up inside, although some are content with expressing their excitement or disappointment in the outcome of their game.
