Default Chess Boxing. In case I didn't ask before

Anyone have any comments on this? We may be able to get a Pay-Per-View event at least on Cable TV. I am curious how many people here would watch.

I'd watch, but I'm pretty sure the champions of Chess/Boxing would be the Klitschko brothers who are both champions of the Heavyweight division and avid Chess players. Lennox Lewis is another massive fellow who knows his way around a Chess board. I'm not sure how well Kasparov can take a punch but I wouldn't want to face any of them!

I saw a YouTube video on it. People would be interested in a Lewis vs Klitschko match.

By the way, there are multiple links here:

People have debated it. I believe there is a bunch of arguments against it. As of now, I don't see the IAGO World Tour having chessboxing on it, but I am interested in IAGO working with the WCBO regarding chessboxing. The Tour is likely open to everyone to compete in, and the boxing element really limits who would be in it.

Ok, now maybe we can get chess-poker going as an alternative :-)
