Boxing Club To Host Fighting Competition This Saturday

The Penn State Boxing Club will host a series of fights at the White Building this Saturday.

The first matches are from 1-3 p.m. followed by the night matches from 6-8 p.m. for a total of 28 bouts. Fighters from Penn State, West Point, the U.S Naval Academy, Lock Haven, Shippensburg, Kutztown, UMass, UConn, and Trinity will compete. Penn State will feature 18 fighters, 14 men and four women, from the Boxing Club.

The fighters were selected from the competitive pool of Penn State Boxing Club members. The club has around 100 members including competitive and noncompetitive fighters. The ultimate goal for the Boxing Club is to improve their record this weekend so they can place in the regional boxing competition at Lock Haven University in March.

President of the Penn State Boxing Club, Taylor Varner, explained every fighter must prepare in their own way for competitions like this. Varner stressed the difficulties of preparing for these matches because fighters from military schools in particular will be steep competition due to their discipline and intense training.

Strategically, Penn State fighters do not find out the other person they are fighting until the day of the match so they instead prepare for every fighting style.

Stop by on Saturday afternoon to watch the action, just don’t talk about.
