So, a chess player walks into a brawl …

chess player

What game requires strategy and players to always be one step ahead of their opponent? Some might say chess, some might say boxing, but Matt Thomas says both. The 28-year-old Atlantan heads to India this month as the first American to compete in the Chess-Boxing Amateur World Championship.

Over three days, athletes compete in five alternating three-minute rounds of chess and boxing and win by getting either a checkmate or a knockout.

Thomas hopes to raise funds for his charity, Brawl for a Cause, which empowers everyday people to literally fight for what they believe in.
