The Swindon venue will host an evening with legendary boxing rivals Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn.

Thursday 11 November will see the Eubank and Benn take to the stage for the first time to talk about their boxing careers and their two professional boxing matches which took place in 1990 and 1993.

Benn won his first 22 consecutive bouts by knockout, Eubank was said to be the cocky, flamboyant upstart who began calling out Benn after his tenth bout. The rivalry grew, with both men swearing that they would knock the other man out. 

The pair's event at Meca will start at 6pm and aims to finish around 11:45pm. 

The dress code for the evening is smart casual - event staff say this means no ripped jeans.

Those wishing to book a table for 10 or 12 people can contact Mark Jakeways on 07799883057.
