Preview: Showtime - White Collar Boxing Charity Gala

By Katie McKenzie
White Collar Boxing steps up a glamour gear on 13 May presenting 'Showtime' in the East End's Troxy. Last month, There Will Be Blood convinced us that the Real Fight Club could provide great sportsmanship and entertainment for boxing enthusiasts and curious first time spectators alike in the gloriously shabby grandeur of York Hall. This time, IWCB championship fight action in the ring will be framed by Vegas style showmanship. We're talking a rat pack style band, casino and "bikini bull riding" live from London's own Sin City... um, Limehouse.

If you've "got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn" glitzy ringside VIP tables are available at a knock out £149 per head, or get your rich friends or benevolent employers to shell out for a table of ten at £1390. There's also a charity auction in aid of Wooden Spoon so impress your mates with your philanthropic bent, do. If you can forgo dinner, table service and being in spitting distance of the action, balcony seats start from £20.

Buy glitzy VIP and standard tickets online but not before you've kept an eye on our Twitter stream @londonist in the next 24 hours for a chance to win one of five free pairs of standard tickets to this fistful of crazy affair.

Showtime is at the Troxy, 490 Commercial Road, E1 (Limehouse DLR/rail) on Thursday 13 May. Doors 7pm, first bell 8.30pm, boxing ends 11.15pm, afterparty till 2am. You too can learn to box at The Real Fight Club in Shoreditch.
