i wouldn't give iron mike a chance (unless he nibbled at fg7's ears!)

seriously though, i believe the russian (and cuban also) school of boxing
includes chess training to mentally prepare their students and enhance concentration...

i remember attending a chess (!) training camp once held at a ex-army base
and included some physical training drills, medicine ball throwing, etc.
maybe something to add to the ergas training squad ciriculam?! :lol:

Show them the "real" meaning of the Bayonet attack,eh Oscar? :lol:

As for BB wish list of "chessboxing" we could have :

FG7 vs KB , Matt Sweeney vs Bill Gletsos, A/C vs Belthasar ,Rincewind vs Cafman . What a fight night that would be. :lol: :clap: :lol:

And for the pc freaks out there,I am only joking. ;)

The only world champion who was a champion boxer, to my knowledge, was Max Euwe. He was European amateur champion in a division.
