The brawn of boxing and the brains of chess? Yeah, why not. It seems like an awesome, albeit time-consuming sport and maybe a little bit messy or like something we’d see in Game of Thrones, but we can get behind it.

Like far behind it, in the corner, where we don’t have to be called on for chess advice or accidentally get hit. JACK FM has neither brains nor brawn.

Now chessboxing is coming to Los Angeles with the L.A. Chessboxing Club and a match organized by the Tuxedo Tyrants is happening in a Downtown Los Angeles warehouse.

Here’s a video explaining the deal.
