International Chessboxing: Kings Of The Ring
A sporting hybrid unlike any you’ve ever seen
Who says you can’t have both brains and brawn? It started out as a joke in an Amsterdam art gallery in 2003, but has since flourished into a fully-fledged sporting event. A simple concept really – play 4 minutes of chess, followed by 2 minutes of boxing. The one who reigns victorious does so either by knockout or checkmate. Get ready for a battle between Sergio 'The Phoenix' Leveque (Italy) and England's homegrown hero Mark 'The Hammer' Pilkington plus three other heavyweight matches. And don’t forget about the legendary afterparty DJs and special guest cabaret. It’s a jam-packed night with a punch (apologies, pun intended). General admission. Over 18s only.
