DeGale v Eubank (9pm)Join us on Sat 23rd February for a HUGE domestic dust up by two polarising figure in British Boxing - James DeGale and Chris Eubank Jr. DeGale has hard a long and hard fought career at Super-Middleweight where he has always divided opinion on just how good he is compared to his peers - on the downward slope of his career, some would say this is a must win for 'Chunky' if he does have his eyes on 'one last run'. Eubank Jr has flattered to deceive thus far in his career, a promising and exciting fighter who certainly has the look and charisma to succeed, however, the two times he has come up against world class operators - he has struggled. Will he continue to live in his Father's shadow? or is this Jr's time to shine? Catch the fight with us - FREE ENTRY - But we do expect to be full so don't leave it too late! book a booth with us and enjoy your own private screen plus table service for the night!
