The Spike or Victoria College Review June 1914


During the summer vacation the Boxing Club held a series of meetings, with a view to preparing for the Inter-University Boxing Tournament. The team, as originally selected, included Messrs. E. Stewart and J. D. Brosnan. Unfortunately, neither of these was able to compete, the former owing to an injured hand, and the latter owing to pressure of work. Thus deprived of its two best boxers, the team was necessarily a weak one, and we were unable to send representatives in either the Heavy or Feather classes. Our men, however, all put up good fights, and Dudson succeeded in getting into the final of the "Welter" weight, while Hudson won the Light-weight Championship.

The points scored by the various Colleges were: —

  • Auckland—1 win (Heavy).
  • Canterbury—1 win (Feather).
  • Victoria College—1 win (Light).
