Oxford University Amateur Boxing Club won the annual Town versus Gown competition held last week at The Oxford Union. It is the first ‘Gown’ overall win over local boxers since 2011.
It was also a landmark year for the competition in that there were five women’s bouts!
OUABC came out 6-3 victors achieving:
- 2 TKOs (Iain Holland, Blue & Men’s Captain; Jack Straker, President)
- 2 Unanimous Decisions (Claudia Havranek, Women’s Captain; Conor Husbands, Blue)
- 2 Split Decisions (Mags Chilaev; Jack Prescott)
The results bodes well ahead of the club’s Varsity Match at The Oxford Town Hall on Saturday 8th March against Cambridge University.
Nasir Hamid took some fantastic behind the scenes shots (selection above) on the night as a part of his photo series on Oxford University Sport. Nasir will also be at the 2014 Varsity Games weekends after enjoying himself here in 2012!
