International Chessboxing: Kings Of The Ring Cornerman Experience

A sporting hybrid unlike any you’ve ever seen

'Mad fun.'

- - Time Out.
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). Bonus: your tickets include the exclusive opportunity to get in on the action by assisting a cornerman for a chessboxing bout. You'll join in on pre-fight preparation in the changing room with your fighter, ring entrance walk, then help out during the fight. You also get VIP use of Glass Bar and Viewing Balcony, cocktails on arrival, plus a meet and greet with the chessboxers. Cornerman experience and VIP tickets. Over 18s only.
