Last week was an amazing time to be a boxing fan, and with the excitement of a match-up like Canelo vs. Golovkin comes a Harvard Boxing Club staple: watch parties! Pictured above is one such event, co-hosted by Raza and the Latino Men’s Collective. A number of Harvard students with ties to the three clubs met in Currier Fishbowl last Saturday night to take in the much anticipated bout. Regardless of the controversial outcome, Canelo vs. Golovkin was quite the show, and it was made even better by the delicious food and drinks provided by our friends in Raza and LMC. Be on the lookout for more fun events like this in the future!
Our first practice of the year will be this coming Monday, September 12 at 3:30. We have practice Monday through Saturday, but no required commitments; you can come however many times or however few times your schedule permits. Of course, the more practices you attend, the more you benefit! Since our practices are held in the MAC, you will need a membership/access to the building. The Harvard Boxing Club provides r all of our safety gear, practice equipment, parties, viewing nights, and our end of the year exhibition night and banquet.
Monday, Wednesday and Friday are our skills practices. Practice starts at 3:30 in the MAC Mezzanine. At 4:30 we move to Fitness Room 2 and we finish at 5:30. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday are our conditioning days. Tuesdays and Thursdays are in Fitness Room 2 from 3:30 – 5:30 and Saturdays are also in Fitness Room 2 but from 3 – 5. We will also have morning practices from 8 – 9 on the MAC balcony for experienced boxers only; those days are TBA. There will be announcements in the next few days about preseason conditioning; those are for returning members only!
