Colbert talks chess with…who else?...Floyd Mayweather Jr. VIDEO
What season is this? Fall? That means it’s time for Colbert’s “Sport Report” to check in on football and …chess?
Last night, Stephen jumped from a discussion of concussions on the gridiron to a ban on street chess in San Francisco. For this he brought out his “longtime chess correspondent”: boxer extraordinaire Floyd Mayweather Jr.
The two chatted about the dangers of the sport and why a ban makes logical sense. The champ discussed his own experience with this most physical of competitive ventures. “I was lucky,” he says. “My father put a bishop in my hand when I was 3.”
Who will ever forget the Queen’s Gambit Mayweather used against Miguel Cotto?
