Chess Boxing

This makes me so happy, and I'm not sure why. Chess Boxing.
The matches work like this: competitors alternate between three-minute rounds of boxing and four-minute rounds of speed chess with one-minute breaks in between to get the gloves off and hunker down at the chess table. The winner is determined by knockout, checkmate, or referee decision.
I'm captivated by the idea of the transition from beating the hell out of some buys face to playing a board game with him, and then back again.
