The Spike or Victoria University College Review

Boxing Club

Boxing Club

It is a matter for regret that no boxing contest was held at the Easter Tournament at Auckland. There are in the Club several men who could have upheld the best traditions of Victoria College had they been given an opportunity, but by some misfortune it was not until a few days before Easter that any definite intimation was received that we should endeavour to arrange a team This cannot be done in a day, and it is to be hoped that the Easter Boxing Contest will be managed in a more business-like manner next year.

The general meeting was but moderately attended, and the top floor is not particularly crowded on Boxing evenings, except by spectators. If the Club has not the members it has certainly the quality, and a friendly bout between the leading men is well worth watching. The services of Mr. T. Tracy have been once more engaged, and it may be confidently predicted that the contest to be held next term will be one of the most successful College functions of the year.
