Chess and Boxing Siblings
Hat tip to DG for finding an interview with professional women's boxer Alicia Ashley, sister to American GM Maurice Ashley. The interviewer suggests she take up "Chess Boxing," which has become a legitimate sport (I'm "not making this up!") Makes you think that the connection between the two sports is more natural than we'd suppose. After all, as Lasker famously said, "Chess is a fight!"
