In the Mogul Chessboxing Championship, Ludwig combines content creator boxing with the chess craze ...

Ludwig is no stranger to the sport of hosting events that twist on familiar concepts, but this time he is dragging some of the most famous content creators on Twitch and YouTube into a chess tournament.

Chessboxing is a game in which participants will play chess and boxing alternating until one side wins either by checkmate or knockout. Players will not be hit during their play, but they will have to focus on their strategies while also moving away from the board and into the wider arena.

Ludwig, who has hosted fighting game tournaments and chess tournaments in the past, is combining elements from other successful creator boxing events, such as the Creator Clash, who have drew big names in the past.

The Mogul Chessboxing Championship will feature 12 players for six matches, along with two Super Smash Bros.-themed undercards that will likely replace Chess with Smash. This includes content creators like Myth, Disguised Toast, boxbox, PointCrow, and even Abroad in Japan.

Aman Hambleton, the chess great, will square off against International Master Lawrence Trent in the main event.
