Best Answer

Chess boxing is an unusual sport because chess & boxing are totally different 'sports'. Chess is a 'sport' of the mind, and is very calm (except when you or your opponent, whichever loses, is a bad loser!). Boxing is a 'sport' of strength, and is deffinately NOT a calm 'sport'.

Is chess considered a sport?

I would say no. According to The Free Dictionary, the definition of sport is: "Physical activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively." Chess is governed by a set of rules. Chess is competitive. But there is no physical activity involved in playing chess. Therefore, chess is not a sport. Same with darts and poker. There is no physical activity with these games, therefore, they are not sports. However, the IOC who governs the Olympics considers chess to be a sport.
