The Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet Inter-House Boxing Competition took place on Thursday.

Mr Maier said: "We had everything from the ring announcer to ring girl holding up the round cards!! We even had a very special guest, Roger Petterson who is a famous Swedish boxing champion. The boxing club has been a part of this school for a number of years and was very excited to showcase the sport."

Mr Maier took time out of his schedule to provide a run down of the events that took place:

First match

Zinar “Bang Bang” Budak of PAVLOV (N1D) Vs. Alex “TNT” Tingström of CURIE (N2B)

Zinar and Alex went head to head for three great rounds of boxing. They both used considerable skill, delivering a battery effective jabs and straights.

In the end Zinar of PAVLOV came out with a victory.

Second match

Crystal “The Dangerous Diamond” of PAVLOV (N1C) Vs. Sousan “Sock it to Em” Seoud of KING (S3C)

Mr Maier confessed that this was: "an intense match! The girls went out really strong and didn't hold back for a second. The fight went one round and was won by Crystal of PAVLOV on account of a TKO injury. Sousan wanted to continue and had the true passion of a real champion who never quits."

Neverthelss, as the rules stipulate the match was stopped because of injury and Chrystal was declared the winner.

Third Match

Jerrymore “The Black Mamba” Kisekka of RUSSELL (S1B) Vs. Apy “The Big Apple” Lubwimi of CURIE (N2B)
