The newest craze to sweep the campus is chess boxing! No, you did not just read that wrong. Sign-ups for the sport started last Tuesday and already there are three people signed up.
Opponents must both be skilled in boxing and chess. The rounds alternate between the two the two activities. There are six rounds of chess that are each four minutes long, and five rounds of boxing which last for three minutes.
I questioned one of the students on the sign-up sheet about how excited he was for the first match, “I am actually pretty confused; I thought this was just chess. The boxing must have been covered up! So, you mean I have to box someone? Actually box someone?” He would like to remain anonymous.
After clarifying the boxing portion of this sport to this confused young man several times, he proceeded to scratch out his name several times. The chess boxing team is now at an even two people.
