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.

Fight Night at The Shankly

Your evening will begin at 7pm and you can look forward to enjoying all of the build up before the action begins at around 10pm. You will be surrounded by never seen before Shankly memorabilia and a thrilling atmosphere making it sure to be a night to remember.

This blockbuster is expected to smash the record for the biggest grossing fight and the largest purse ever seen in the UK, with income from the fight expected to be £40 million – but could rise to as much as £50 million depending on pay-per-view sales.

With both Klitscho and Joshua confident about their performances, all eyes will be glue to the screens as these two heavyweights fight it out on a night that will go down in boxing history. 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.

For LFC and boxing fans, it’s set to be a jam-packed day of action. You can find out full schedule below:

The Bastion Bar & Restaurant

Located within the Shankly, the Bastion is the perfect place to sit back with a beer and enjoy some live sport. This Saturday, you’ll be able to choose from our hearty match day menu. The menu features the Bastion’s famous Shankly Burger, Southern Fried Chicken Burger and good old fashioned Fish and Chips. Plus, our delicious 6oz Rump Steak with Chips, Mushrooms and Tomatoes.

And if it’s your first visit to the Liverpool hot spot, then don’t forget to take a look around at the Bill Shankly memorabilia around the restaurant and bar area. The Shankly Hotel provides guests with a fantastic range of personal memorabilia, thanks to the Shankly family themselves.

Haye V Bellew

Set to be an unforgettable night, we’ll certainly be rooting for Liverpool’s very own Tony Bellew when he takes to the ring. The Merseyside athlete grew from being a three-time ABA heavyweight champion, to making his professional boxing debut in October 2007.

One of the most intense grudge fights in modern British boxing history, Saturday will showcase the ongoing feud that everybody’s talking about. To say that the pair have “bad blood” is an understatement; the hype surrounding the fight was taken to a new level at Thrusday’s press conference when the two came head to head. While Haye issued a series of threatening remarks, Bellew shared:

“Nearly time to rock and roll. Lets see what happens. The main thing is no excuses. They have been put out to the media. We all get sore, we all get knocks and bumps. This is the combat business, it’s called boxing.”

Liverpool V Arsenal

Liverpool V Arsenal is also expected to provide plenty of entertainment. If Liverpool win tomorrow’s game then it will be their 50th home league win over Arsenal, so we have our fingers crossed that they’re ready!
