The hybrid sport was envisioned in 1992 by cartoonist Enki Bilal, and chess boxing was featured in his graphic novel Froid equateur. Iepe Rubingh brought the concept to life, fighting under the name Iepe the Joker. Rubingh felt the method described in the book, a boxing match followed by a chess match, was impractical. He instead decided on alternating rounds of chess and boxing.
The sport is governed by the World Chess Boxing Organisation (WCBO), whose strap line is “The smartest toughest (wo)man on the planet.”
