We’re back at the Scala nightclub with a special night of entertainment featuring the ultimate England V Italy showdown, chessboxing followed by a late night live screening of England’s opening game of the World Cup Finals against Italy in Brazil.

Demonstrate your love of all things Anglo-Italian enjoy the most spectacular chessboxing night of the year then watch the match live on the big screens at our after-party but please remember; “You’re only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!

On team England we are proud to have Karl ‘Hustler’ Ouch. While residing in Swansea, Wales he is excited to represent England against Giuseppe Grasso from Italy. With his extensive experience of both disciplines Grasso might cause a shift in Ouch’s winning spree. With his impressive Elo rating of over 2300, Ouch is expected to try and out play his opponent once more on the board. Will Grasso have enough experience to make a dent in the Hustler’s record?

We also see the return of George Crespo, who already has two fights under his belt in this season alone. Currently living in London, Crespo will come out for England with the Italian Raffaele Nigro as his opponent. Both fighters have a high standard of boxing so we are predicting to see some quality boxing moves for this exciting chessboxing bout.

Plus undercard and cabaret interval!
