This is the recap of the 686 Lights Out party that went down during Ispo on Monday, February 4th, at the Backstage club in Munich. 686 Lights Out is a charity boxing event with industry heads battling each other – all to support Fuck Cancer.
Host Drew Stevenson got the packed place going. Contenders like Victor De Le Rue, Conny Bleicher, and Vanessa Andrieux, to name but a few, came out fighting under supervision from real boxing coaches and referees. The three round bouts were preceded by a weigh in at the 686 booth at Ispo. Fights included snowboard pro vs. snowboard pro, ad sales guy vs ad buyer, girl vs girl, and sales rep vs sales rep. Apart from the much awaited girls fight (which Vanessa won after a surprisingly fierce exchange of blows) it was mostly the showdown between buff pro Victor De Le Rue and rather slack looking Bob Van Unnik. However, Bob stunned his opponent and the ever more excited crowd and scored a clear win on points against the French ripper.
After the fights were over and the 686 Lights Out belts awarded, a DJ crew provided by Skullcandy kept the adrenaline-filled vibe going. Talk among spectators and industry head was that this event should be here to stay. And over the course of the night more and more people wanted to sign up for next year’s event…
686 Lights Out was presented by Electric and Onboard and featured sounds provided by Skullcandy. Additional support was provided by Monster and Warsteiner and the night’s earnings went to Fuck Cancer. Thanks to ISPO for their technical support.
