The perfect combination of mental exercise and boxing: With "TV total Quizboxen", contestants compete in boxing and quiz round alternately. Two minutes of boxing in line with amateur boxing rules are followed by a two-minute quiz duel round with buzzer before it's back to the boxing.

Three fights are broadcasted per show - one light, middle and heavyweight each time. Each victory is worth 25,000 euros and the winner appears in the following show to defend his World Quizboxing Association (WQBA) title. If he wins four consecutive battles, he wins 100,000 euros and can scoop up an additional 100,000 euros with a victory in the fifth duel.
