Joshua vs Klitschko – Plan The Best Fight Night at The Shankly Hotel

Tomorrow night, Saturday 29th, Anthony Joshua is set to take on Wladimir Klitschko in the IBF heavyweight world title deciding contest at the home of football, Wembley Stadium, London.

Only the second boxing event to be staged at the national football stadium after Carl Froch knocked out George Groves in the pair’s rematch in May 2014, this match promises to be a unforgettable showdown.

The pair will go toe-to-toe on this box office big fight in front of an expected crowd of 90,000 boxing fans, a post-war record for a fight in the UK. This momentous evening could define both fighters’ careers, Klitschko will provide Joshua with his biggest test yet.

But if like us you haven’t managed to snatch a ticket for this historic fight, book your seat at the next best venue, The Bastion Bar in the Shankly Hotel.

We have kitted out our special venue, Baby Eden within the Bastion Bar, with everything you’ll need to make this nail-biting face off an unmissable event.

Joshua said recently: “There is no doubt this will be a titanic battle with a huge amount on the line, just like every fight, but when I enter the ring I will be prepared for victory as I have been with all my other fights. The legend against the champ – it’s time to write history.”

So place your bets and settle down for an electric evening of sport, in the ultimate venue for sport lovers.
