Originally developed as a means of settling budget disputes, boxing mirrored Senate members’ frustration with not knowing how to use an abacus. Pass a fistful of legislation with today’s GrouponLive deal to see the Los Angeles Matadors home boxing event against the Bangkok Elephants at The Music Box in Hollywood on Sunday, December 18, at 7 p.m. Choose from the following options:
- For $10, you get one upper-level ticket for standing room only (a $20 value).
- For $25, you get one upper-level VIP ticket for general-admission seating and bar access (a $50 value).
- For $40, you get one VIP ringside ticket for standing room only (a $100 value).
- For $75, you get one VIP ringside, Las Vegas–style fight-night-experience ticket for reserved seating (a $150 value).
A chorus of padded whacks and thumps fills The Music Box as the Los Angeles Matadors’ burgeoning superstars raise their fists to pummel Bangkok’s best during an adrenaline-fueled World Series of Boxing event. As part of its mission to redefine boxing as a professional team sport, the WSB stages matches for five weight classes of fighters and determines the winners based on the teams’ collective records. Southpawed star Rau’Shee “Baby Pit” Warren pulls no punches in the bantamweight bracket, distracting his opponents with puffs of diaper powder before light-heavyweight and five-time Belarus National Champion Siarhei “The Belarus Hammer” Karneyeu pounds the final nails into a victory.
Having already sent teams from Astana and Moscow home with the black-eyed faces of downtrodden panda bears, the Matadors look to make quick work of their competition and further impress Olympic scouts. Audience members seated ringside can hobnob with celebrities and bring along towels to wipe their favorite boxers’ brows, and those watching from the upper-level section can wag their thumbs like Roman emperors as they observe the action from lofty seats.
