Anyone starting at University this Autumn who is a Boxing enthusiast and wants to continue with his/her chosen sport whilst at University?
As long as you are a student in full~time higher education at a University which is affiliated to BUCS (which, as far as I know, they all are!) and as long as you hold a valid Boxing England Medical Record Card ("ME3") and have had at least two previous competitive bouts then you are eligible to enter the annual BUCS national student boxing championships.
The ABA/Boxing England actually ran a competition called the English University Boxing Series ("EUBS") specifically to allow unboxed students to get the two bouts on their Medical Record Cards that they needed to enter BUCS. Otherwise they can always compete out on the local, inter~club circuit
Man, it's been a while since Martinez lost his middleweight belt and I'm still sad asf! After his career demise I want to see GG claiming the division outright, a fight with Cotto surely has to happen so he can unify the division.
The Welterweight division is the most exciting division atm in my opinion, a lot of good fighters. I especially like Keith Thurman, but yet again boxing politics is getting in the way of good match making.
I am tired of hearing about Al Haymon and Golden Boy fighters, tired of hearing about ShowTime and HBO fighters. I just want to see good fights.
Ooh yeah and I'm tired of Danny Garcia fighting bums too.
Boxing is a shambles at the moment.
When is pro boxing ever not a shambles?
I studied at Kent. I used to box for Dagenham ABC but didn't compete at uni, I wanted to try something new and went into a different sport instead. I did go to a few of their sessions though and it's well run, you will enjoy it.
So far as I know - and I've been around student Boxing for some thirty years - there has never been any such thing as a "British" students' Amateur Boxing Championships.
