What’s On at the O2 Arena (Jan/Feb 2015)
London is a city of attractions. Around almost every corner there’s a restaurant, venue, gallery, museum or café, but when it comes to huge music, comedy or sporting events, there’s few locations that can match the O2 arena. Formally known as the Millennium Dome, the O2 remains an important landmark in London and a crucial hub for the arts. But what’s coming up on at the O2 Arena? Let’s take a look at the highlights.
Haye Day – 16/01 (Tickets available)
Former two-weight world champion David Haye has announced his return to professional boxing with a heavyweight bout against Australia’s Mark De Mori. De Mori is unbeaten within the last decade and brings with him a fearsome reputation as one of the class’ heaviest hitters, having won 25 of his 30 victories with a KO. Haye, on the other hand, having cancelled his fight with Tyson Fury on 2014 because of injury, is one of the greatest fighters of his generation. This comeback fight sees the man at age 35, and will confirm whether the fighter can still lay claim to a terrifying reputation.
