The Spike or Victoria University College Review Silver Jubilee 1924



V.C's Boxing Club was formed away back in 1910. Through its representations boxing contests, not officially part of the tournament, were held at christchurch in 1914. The noble art found its official recognition in 1920. We have done fairly well. Last year our name was engraved on the Shield along with those of Canterbury and Otago. Out of four contests in each class we have won:—heavyweight 1, middle 2, welter 1, light 0, and feather 2. There has been only one bantam contest (won by Otago).
