Hometown hero Chris Billam-Smith is bringing a knockout night to Bournemouth Pavilion on Friday 10th May 2024

On Friday 10th May 2024 the Pavilion Theatre, Bournemouth plays host to “An Evening with Chris Billam-Smith”, where sports fans will hear the backstory from the Bournemouth man who has held the WBO cruiserweight world title, since winning a majority decision against Lawrence Okolie at the Vitality Stadium in May 2023.

Hosted by Sky Sports News' Pete Graves and facilitated by Gala Events, the show will see Billam-Smith share anecdotes from his amazing career so far, which includes 13 knockouts in his 19 victories to date.

During the evening, audiences will hear about his early life growing up in Bournemouth, his fledgling career as a teenage amateur, and all the trials and tribulations along the road to stardom. After the interval, there will be an audience Q&A with the man who could yet become a multi-belt world champion!

There will also be an opportunity to participate in a charity boxing memorabilia auction to help raise funds for the evening's chosen charity, Cure Leukaemia.

After winning his first nine fights, Chris suffered the only defeat of his career against Richard Riakporhe in a controversial split decision in 2019. Since then, his career has gone from strength to strength, with ten wins on the bounce, including his most recent world title defence against Mateusz Masternak at the Bournemouth International Centre.

All roads lead now to a rematch with Riakporhe early in the summer where Chris will look to exact revenge against his British rival with the world title on the line.

This is the chance to hear the fight previewed with the man himself as he takes a night off from the rigours of training camp, to spend an evening with the fans, who have been so amazing in their support for the man known as “The Gentleman” throughout his career.

A limited number of VIP tickets for a meet and greet are available, so book now to avoid disappointment at www.bournemouthpavilion.co.uk. Don’t miss an evening which promises to be a fantastic night of fun and entertainment for all boxing enthusiasts!
