This week is packed to the brim with juicy events one simply cannot afford to miss. From impressive fights to great music to literal rivers of craft beer, London’s got your every need in entertainment covered.
James DeGale VS Chris Eubank JR
This Saturday will be a day to remember for boxing fans from all over the world as one of the year’s greatest fights is about to shake the O2 in London.
We are about to witness a battle of skill and experience versus a passionate thirst for redemption with the 33-year-old two-time super-middleweight champion James DeGale betting his career on the outcome of the fight.
Yes, James claimed that he would consider retiring depending on the outcome of this clash of titans. And this comes from the man who has previously given up his IBF title in pursuit of greater fights like this one.
As for Chris Eubank Jr, the fighter is desperate to claim the victory for himself after his disappointing loss to George Groves.
Talk about raising the stakes.
Where does one watch the royal rumble? O2 is the number one option and there was a handful of seats available at the time we were writing these words. They start at 330 quid a pop.
That said, there’s more than one way to skin a cat as a great selection of London’s finest pubs will be showing the fight live.
- Nordic Bar. Great food, ice-cold cocktails, live sports, and ping-pong – what else do you need for an amazing night out?
- The Kings Arms. This cozy pub on Fulham Road offers the Best Burger in all of Chelsea, a wide selection of craft beers and a brilliant cocktail map.
- The Leyton Star. Food, drinks, sports, and karaoke, and the BUFFHELLO, holding the title of the best Buffalo wings at WIngfest should pretty much seal the deal for anyone looking for a night out to remember.
- Rileys Sports Bar Haymaker. This pub is more than your run in the mill place to grab a bite or enjoy the drink. This is a temple to all thing sports we are talking about! If you feel like focusing on watching the fight in the company of fans as passionate as you are, Rileys should be the #1 spot on your list.
