The Wardrobe wins ChessBoxing title in London

Dutchman Hubert “The Wardrobe” Van Melick has combined brain and brawn to take out the heavyweight bout of chess boxing in London.

Chess boxing is a hybrid sport which combines boxing with chess over 11 alternating rounds. The ultimate test of strength and intellect sees competitors win the match either by a knock out or checkmate.

Van Melick took out the title at the Boston Dome in London with a checkmate victory over Patrick Teehan. The Dutchman outwitted Teehan in 24 moves to win the match and the title of heavyweight champion.
