The Spike: or, Victoria College Review 1912

Annual Tournament

Annual Tournament.

Although last year's tournament took the form of a contest with the Star Boating Club, this year the great improvement in membership and development in boxing, made it possible again to hold a College Tournament. A new departure was made in charging for admittance, but the number of interesting bouts which took place amply justified this. Details of the contest are as follows:—

Open Championship.—Premliminaries.

Dudson v. Jackson.

Jackson boxed himself to a standstill, and Dudson's superior condition won him the fight.

Brosnan a bye.

Stainton was unable to compete against Brosnan owing to an injured ankle. J. Murphy boxed a very willing bye with Brosnan.


Dudson v. Brosnan.

Brosnan was very tired, and found Dudson very elusive. A terrific upper cut by Brosnan in the third round just failed to "land the goods," and Dudson, finishing strongly, gained the decision.

Light Weight Championship.

Boyle v. Pallant.

Boyle's wicked left swings found their mark, and gained him the victory.

Feather Weight Championship.

Stevenson v. Roe.

Stevenson's experience gained him the verdict after a close struggle, but Roe's hefty left worried him not a little.
