Chemical Engineers clinch Varsity Boxing win for Cambridge

Ssegawa-Ssekintu Kiwanuka representing CUABC

The 103rd Boxing Varsity Match is the oldest inter-club amateur boxing fixture in the World. This year, the Cambridge team journeyed to Oxford on March 9th, 2010 with the hopes of retaining the Truelove Bowl following last year's 9-0 whitewash.

The Cambridge team boasted two Chemical Engineers out of the nine boxers - postgraduate Ssegawa-Ssekintu Kiwanuka, supervised by Dr Clemens Kaminski in the Laser Analytics Group and undergraduate Bart Dear at Heavyweight. Despite going 3-0 down, Cambridge fought back in determined fashion, with Ssegawa winning what the BBC called a "ferocious bout" at Middleweight to put Cambridge into the lead for the first time.

BartScores were then level as Bart entered the ring for the final bout at Heavyweight. The one year exchange student from the University of Notre Dame did not disappoint, with a spectacular unanimous victory over his 6' 4 inch, 27 year-old opponent.

The photographs show Ssegawa in action and Bart with his father, also a Chemical Engineer, who had flown in from site in Kuala Lumpar especially for the Match.
