Roll up, roll up, ladies and gentlemen and witness a live sporting event to surpass any live sporting event you've ever experienced before. It's the thinking man's contact sport, a chance to punch your chess opponent in the face, and for geek to beat brawn – maybe – it's Cheeessssss-boxingggg.

Now a London sports-themed entertainment staple – something for the more discerning fan of pugilism, or the larger lout who likes to slide bishops and take queens – this September Scala is hosting the crème de la crème of Chessboxing: the Chessboxing Championship.

The big bout(s) are happening on the 10th of September, and, as well as the main event: the heavyweight title decider, there will also be an international premiere of the sport of Ladies Chessboxing. Just when you thought you couldn't add anything else to the mix, and there you are. It's only a matter of time before someone suggests they add jelly.

If you've never seen this sport live before this is the way to experience it: they're laying on a big screen so you won't miss a thing, there's pre-match entertainment and an after party with DJs and the promise of special guests who'll be laying down their thang until 2AM.
