It's physical, it's mental- for the first time, the Royal Albert Hall welcomes chessboxing to its Loading Bay.
Chessboxing is the ultimate clash of brains and brawn as competitors aim to out-think and out-fight each other in the boxing ring, bringing together strategy, tactics and punching power in an unforgettable mix of fast-moving entertainment and physical courage. You have to see it to believe it!
Live chess commentary will come from the incomparable IM Malcolm Pein and a giant digital screen means you won’t miss a move. Featured during the event will be a live cabaret show & DJ.
The evening has four scheduled bouts, including Bryan Woon vs 'Mighty' Sean Mooney, the UK’s Number 1 heavyweight Andy ‘The Rock’ Costello plus some of the finest chessboxers from around the world including Germany's Tim ‘CSI’ Bendfeldt, Mike ‘The Bedfordshire Bull’ Botteley, Lithuania's pocket dynamo Vladimir Agasaryan, carrying hopes of all Latin America, Costa Rica’s outstanding young prospect, Jose Sanchez Amen. Quite simply the greatest line-up of chessboxing talent in history!
