It’s almost time for the first Sheffield Varsity 2017 fixture, on Saturday the 11th of March Team Hallam will take on the University of Sheffield in Varsity Boxing.
Sheffield has a growing reputation for producing talented boxers and many of the athletes competing have won numerous medals at the British University Champions (BUCs). Amongst these athletes we have 75kg gold medal winner Matthew Smith fighting for Hallam University, and we are also proud to host our very first women’s spar match featuring silver medal winner Jade Pearce from the University of Sheffield.
This event never fails to deliver an exciting and electric environment with up to 1,000 students in attendance at the Sheffield Octagon.
Don’t miss out on one of the biggest amateur shows of the year and the must-see event of the 20-year-old varsity competition.
