Action? Check. Glamour? Check. Excitement? Check. Brawl has it all.
Brawl on the Wall is back in Beijing on the 29th of April and is set to be the most exciting iteration of the annual event yet. CSP (China Sports Promotions) has been working round the clock to make sure this year’s show is even grander, flashier and more electric than last time.
So, what is Brawl on the Wall? Brawl is a white collar boxing event that takes place in major cities in Asia, namely Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei and Macau. The event originated in Shanghai as Brawl on the Bund in 2008 and has been going from strength to strength ever since, expanding both in size and spectacle.
Brawl isn’t just a boxing event, though; in the words of Brawl organizer, and CSP founder, Shane Benis: “Brawl is a spectacle”. Everything about the show is to please, impress and entertain. From the five-star hotel venue, to the free flow drinks throughout the evening, to the strict black tie and evening gown dress code, to the atmosphere warming up as guests mingle in the atrium beforehand, to the lavish four-course dinner, to the professional photographers, to the audiovisual design. Everything about Brawl is meticulously planned and designed to impress and entertain.
And whilst the CSP team organize the event, 80 white collar workers train tirelessly for 3 months to get into the best shape of their lives, before they duke it out in front of a huge audience. Training week in week out by CSP affiliated boxing gyms, notably Golden Gloves in Shanghai, ordinary people are taught to jab, punch, weave, duck and dive by professional coaches.
Of those 80 who sign up, the number is whittled down to the most committed and dedicated 16, those who’ve proven to the boxing coaches that they have what it takes to be in the ring in front of hundreds of people, and dozens of cameras.
Brawl’s audience is a personification of what Brawl is: powerful movers and shakers, stylish celebrities and influential media. This is where high society comes to see and be seen; networking and mingling is abound, and the communal atmosphere is furthered by the fact that every table is bought as a whole, so each table is bought by groups of friends or colleagues.
Brawl is the highlight of the social calendar, and Brawl on the Wall again looks to be Beijing’s premier society event.
To say that Brawl on the Wall is one of the highlights of the year would be an understatement. Bringing the glitz and glamour of big ring boxing to the Orient, Brawl on the Wall is an annual black tie event where the great and the glamorous mingle, dazzle and shine. This year, Brawl on the Wall is taking place at the Park Hyatt Beijing, and promises to be more exciting than ever!
Brawl on the Wall is a white collar boxing event, where amateurs train intensively for three months in the run up to the big showdown. From an initial pool of 100, only the best 16 will be allowed to set foot in the ring – the action is fierce, frantic and ferocious.
Over 600 of Beijing’s finest will descend upon the luxurious Park Hyatt on the 29th of April, where 62 private tables await to treat guests to an exquisite 4 course dinner and free flow drinks. Whilst the guests get into the party mode with complementary cocktails in the Grand Atrium, the boxers make last minute preparations for the big fight. As the doors to the Grand Hall open and the viewers pour in, the boxers mentally brace up for what they’ve been training so hard for. Feel the thrill as the atmosphere, excitement and energy culminates into the final fight of the night.
A heady mix of excitement, glamour and excess awaits you at Brawl on the Wall. Prices for 10 people start at 8000 RMB for Silver Tables up to 15,000 RMB for Ringside Tables. Tickets are available now!
