Executive Fight Night 2022
May 27 at 6:30 pm - 11:30 pm
After two long years of postponements, Executive Fight Night (EFN) is back for its 10th event on Friday May 27. Tokyo-based executives will face off at Roppongi’s Grand Hyatt Tokyo in front of over 480 cheering fans in a Vegas-style boxing event to benefit Shine On! Kids (SOK), an NPO that supports children with cancer and other serious illnesses. Guests will enjoy a four-course dinner, drinks, fabulous prizes and all the glitz and glamour associated with a Vegas-style boxing event.
Once again, this year’s Executive Fight Night is raising funds for SOK’s Facility Dog Program, the first of its kind in Japan. A nurse is paired with a specially-trained therapy dog to work full-time in a children’s hospital. Together they improve outcomes and the children’s approach to medical treatment through various animal-assisted interventions — such as accompanying kids during medical procedures and visiting them regularly during their hospital stay.
May’s championship will be the 10th Executive Fight Night and the event is famed for its luxurious food, wine and spectacular Vegas-style boxing — a rarity in Tokyo. Finally, for the many people who work under these executives, Executive Fight Night offers the fulfillment of a fantasy that is hard to find elsewhere: seeing your boss get punched in the face. And as it’s for a good cause, you don’t even need to feel bad about it.
Executive Fight Night is held at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo on May 27. The dress code is evening/cocktail dress or black tie. Various ticket packages can be purchased by individuals or corporate entities — each with its own level of recognition — and those who are unable to attend the event but still wish to contribute can sponsor a particular fighter.
