Where you print spaces indicating an empty space, you need to look up
the current square in the board data structure to see what is
contained there (whether it's an empty space or not) and print it

I strongly recommend that you work out how to print the board using
nested for loops instead of all those individual print statements.
The result will be more compact, easier to work with, and less
error-prone.  The basic skeleton should look something like this:

for row in range(8):
    for column in range(8):

Which you'll need to embellish with the row and column dividers and labels.
