I started my journey armed with two critical facts: It was Boxing Day, and the Wu-Tang Clan make excellent music. If you can’t see where this is going, stop and listen to the below. Or, even if you can.
There was only one problem, I discovered, as I attempted to piece together a chessboxing-themed blog: it’s really hard to find any actual chessboxing games. Substantial-time-Googling hard. I emailed several supposed governing bodies of chessboxing, the majority of which didn’t respond, although I did get one email back several months later (02–20–2019, for those of you keeping score,) from London Chessboxing. I posted in several chess forums, including this site’s, and got a few leads over in r/chess. It was on.
