Chess-boxing is a real thing

If you’re of the opinion that X-ARM (aka “Over The Top MMA”) is neither ridiculous nor highbrow enough, perhaps a chess/boxing mashup inspired by a graphic novel is more to your liking, good sir.  Matches are composed of eleven alternating rounds of castling and punching, but can be ended at any time by either checkmate or (T)KO.  It appears you can’t throw haymakers during the chess rounds though, which is a shame, cause that would be even awesomer.

Ain’t no Spinner Dunns in this sport, son.
