What is chessboxing?

Chessboxing and smashboxing are, well, exactly what they sound like. The first has been around since the early ’90s, where fights alternate between a round of chess and a round of boxing. The winner is usually determined by checkmate, resignation, knockout, or disqualification by the referee. However, boxing points are used if the distance is reached.

It was the same for the Smash Bros side of things too: a round of Smash before a round of, well, actually smashing each other with boxing gloves.
