The Tuxedo Tyrants

 

Since 2008, The Tuxedo Tyrants have dressed up in their fanciest garb and descended on numerous Los Angeles neighborhoods, with their saucy behavior and tall tales of their exploits.

In an effort to win back some community karma - while still infusing their legendary brand of fancy hedonism - the Tyrants now team up with local charitable organizations to throw fancy fundraisers. After our last adventure, we woke up with 100 aching heads, as well as almost $1000 raised for charity. (Full story here...)

On April 23rd, the Tyrants take to the streets once again, this time starting their escapades in a gritty Venice warehouse, where the night begins with a national Chessboxing fight followed by a barcrawl around the localy vicinity. All proceeds will go to The Tiziano Project, which teaches citizen journalism in war-torn regions of the world.

WHAT IS CHESSBOXING?

Chessboxing is a new sport in which one round of chess is followed by one round of boxing in alternating rounds for 6 rounds of chess, 5 rounds of boxing. A round of chess takes 4 minutes and boxing rounds are 3 minutes. Each competitor has 12 minutes on the chess timer. A checkmate or knockout wins.

FIGHTERS

More myth than man, he traipses the world's war-zones to teach, all the while singing a happy tune.  A man so amazing a comic book company was founded just to tell his stories. Weighing in at 300 pounds and towering at almost 7 feet tall, with a body forged in Colorado and a heart rendered in Congo: Andrew 'The Fightin' Philanthropist' McGregor.


A Hoya grid iron God who traveled West to box before discovering the awesome lethality of his legs and the grueling grip of his grappling and venturing into the cage to become its lord. Hovering above mere mortals at 6'4" and Weighing in at a razor cut 260 Jon 'The Rook Crusher' Rude.
