THIS world is full of weird and wacky sports – and the quite mad ‘arm boxing’ is up there with the daftest.

Forget conventional Queensberry rules boxing, arm boxing might just be even more brutal.

The sport of ‘arm boxing’ sees two opponents chained to a table

The fighters then rain down punches on each other with one hand

The sport sees two opponents stand face to face with each other across a table.

They are then CHAINED to the table, just to make sure they cannot escape.

So unlike regular boxing where fighters can dance around the ring in a bid to avoid taking shots, arm boxers have to stand there and take their punishment.

When the starter klaxon sounds the defenceless fighters proceed to unleash hell on each other in one-minute rounds.

But there’s a catch.

They can only use one of their arms – because they each have one of their hands taped to each other, meaning they are fighting while holding hands.

The sport appears to hail from Russia, with promotion company ‘Arena’ building a sizeable following on social media.

Arena’s Instagram page has over 56,000 followers.

Another boxing spin-off went viral earlier this year, but instead of fighting holding hands across a table like in arm boxing, competitors went hell for leather against each other inside a phone box.

And elsewhere in Russia an MMA promotion staged a fight between a 75-year-old grandad and his grandson against a female opponent.
