MAN VS. MACHINE
THE FINAL ENCOUNTER
Our best fighter will compete with the best robot in a chessboxing fight to decide who is the smartest and toughest on the planet.
We admire Stephen Hawking AND Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Every year the best chessboxer will compete with the best robot in a chessboxing fight to decide who rules the planet. Leading up to the fight, we will follow both fighters and their training. The robot and the mechanics in the laboratory and the human fighter with his trainers in the gym.
The fight will be fought under the general chessboxing rules. With the following additions:
- The robot must resemble his opponent in form, height, and weight
- The robot has to walk on 2 feet
- The punching power has to be the same as the human fighter
- The AI must be installed in the head of the robot
Since the computer beat Kasparov in chess, we have been on the defensive when it comes to intelligence. Even more so since artificial intelligence is on the rise. We are all in awe of the videos showing us robots on 2 feet doing backflips. On the other hand, they still look quite stiff compared to Muhammad Ali or Mike Tyson. Will this be the last ground where we can still beat them?
There is widespread fear of what’s coming. With robots and artificial intelligence (AI), many jobs will be lost. Stephen Hawking even predicted that AI will end mankind within the next 100 years. By fighting the robots every year, we create a communication platform with an enormous reach: Nothing exits mankind more than a fight!
A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at boxing.
DEAR FANS, FIGHTERS, CHESS PLAYERS,
ROBOT LOVERS AND HATERS,
We need your help to make this happen. If you like the idea, then support us by becoming a FOUNDING FAN.
DEAR BOSTON DYNAMICS,
Robots are not all that bad; in fact, we are huge fans and are looking forward to every new video you post. And yes, we have also read Asimov and are aware of his 3 laws of robotics. On the other hand, we are also very aware that a lot of people have not and are scared of what’s to come.
In all, there is a clear lack of a communication platform. That’s why we want to fight you. Through fighting, we will get the attention of the general public and the mass media. This will create the right platform to start communicating.
If you are up for the fight of the 21st century, then drop us an email and let’s get ready to rumble!

Chessboxing is a strategy. Gandhi is good. Tyson as well.
