We are thrilled to offer our clients a brilliant night’s official pre and post-fight Team DeGale hospitality at the magnificent 5* InterContinental O2 Hotel, with cracking ticket options for the big fight. The much-anticipated all-British grudge match between James DeGale and Chris Eubank Jr has been on the cards for years, with the fighters at loggerheads over social media ever since their sparring days. Defeat for either fighter will be a bitter pill to swallow, with a big world title bout the likely reward for the victor.
Joining us before the fight will be former British World Champion, Tony Bellew. After the fight we will welcome former world cruiserweight champion Glenn McCrory to summarise what should be a cracking fight. Guests will enjoy a pre-fight three course meal, and complimentary bar, before heading over to the Arena to watch what is certainly one of the biggest fights of the year!
DeGale v Eubank Jr: In what is rightly being billed as a true grudge match, two bitter British rivals step up for a fight which has been inevitable ever since their amateur days. Having famously won the Olympic Middleweight gold medal at the Beijing Olympics, James ‘Chunky’ DeGale has enjoyed a great career to date, with 24 wins from 27 fights with only two defeats. Highlights so far include winning the IBF title against American Andre Dirrell in Massachusetts, and subsequent defences against some big names including Lucien Bute, Rogelio Medina and an incredibly hard-fought majority draw against teak tough Badou Jack. His shock defeat against Caleb Truax was reversed in the rematch in which he reclaimed the IBF title, which he has now vacated in search of bigger fights. Opponent Chris Eubank Jr suffered only the second defeat of his career against George Groves last year on points and is a man on a mission to reassert his obvious talent.
