London’s leading organisers of black-tie boxing dinners, the Mayfair Sporting Club, are inviting fight fans to celebrate famed Scottish poet Robert Burns in fine style on January 24.
The club is based in the heart of Mayfair at the Millennium Hotel in Grosvenor Square, next to the American Embassy and has been run for the past ten years by British boxing promoter Michael Helliet.
Speaking about the event Helliet said, “Mayfair Sporting Club events fuse the surreal combination of live professional sport with fine dining in some of the capital’s most exclusive venues, we regularly attract an eclectic mix of high profile clients and guests from the worlds of entertainment, media, business and professional sport. Our black-tie boxing dinners have attracted support from establishments such as Deutsche Bank, Lexis Nexis, ABN Amro and Emap who have all attended events.”
“Our ‘Burns’ event is a favourite with patrons and features the ‘Ode to a Haggis’ recited by a Scotsman in full traditional regalia complete with bagpipes, kilt and sporran! We pay our respects to Scotland’s favourite son Robert Burns, drink some whiskey and enjoy the live sporting entertainment from the comfort of our dining tables it’s a very good night!”
Previous events have included a host of professional fighters who have gone on to win major honours and featured on Sky Sports, ITV, BBC and Eurosport and the ’Burns’ event promises an explosive start to 2013.
Prices start at £145 plus VAT per diner and different packages are available to suit all.
