Catch Olympic Gold medallist Anthony Joshua at The O2


Boxer Anthony Joshua had had a fantastic few years, and now it is your chance to catch him try and gain his first professional title at The O2.

Having struck gold at the 2012 Olympics, Joshua is now taking on Denis Bakhtov to win the title at the WBC International Heavyweights on October 11th, and it is sure to be a battle for the ages. This star has managed to dispatch all seven of his opponents across two rounds since he became a professional boxer, and critics have even suggested that he could be the most promising heavyweight that Britain has seen since Lennox Lewis.

Regardless of whether you are a fan of him or not, this is sure to be a very exciting match, as both he and the Russian take a shot for the world title. As Joshua is making his debut as a professional, the world’s eyes will be closely fixed on him, and you never know, the night may just see the birth of a star, making this even a must-see.

The night will also be a big deal for Lee Selby, who will be taking on Joel Brunker in a final eliminator for the Featherweight title. There will also be a series of the city’s fighters taking part in multiple tournaments, so whoever you are here to see, this will be a boxing fan’s dream.

The event will take place at The O2 Arena on October 11th, between 5.30pm and 11.30pm. Tickets cost between £45 and £111, depending on how close you want to get to the action. If you want to keep the party going, especially as there are some amazing bars in the surrounding area, be sure to consider your accommodation options in London.
