OXFORD University’s boxers won the Varsity Match for a fourth successive year with a resounding 7-2 victory over Cambridge University on Saturday night.

The well-deserved success sees the Dark Blues take a 52-51 lead in the overall standings for the historic event after 107 matches.

A capacity crowd at Oxford’s Town Hall saw a devastating display from the hosts, with the biggest cheer of the night saved for when captain Iain Holland lifted the Truelove Bowl.
