The UC Boxing Club is a student run club sport at the University of Cincinnati and is open to all UC students. The team was started in 2011 by UC students who had previously competed on the Cincinnati High School Boxing Team. The team trains at Cincinnati Fitness & Boxing, located less than 2 miles from the University of Cincinnati main campus (see map below) and is coached by the CABC coaches.
The college boxing season runs primarily from October through March. During the season, select team members are able to compete in National Collegiate Boxing Association (NCBA) and United States Intercollegiate Boxing Association (USIBA) boxing shows and tournaments. The UC Boxing Club has had members compete in both of these organizations’ National Tournaments, including winning both the NCBA & USIBA National Championships. Since 2018 UC boxers have traveled to compete both locally in Cincinnati, Columbus and Oxford and across the U.S. fighting multiple times in New York City, Seattle, Nevada, Illinois and California. In 2018 UC freshmen Jacob Maslyk and Joe Carli competed in the NCBA National Tournament at the West Point Military Academy in New York. in 2019 6 members of the UC Boxing Club competed in the NCBA National Tournament in Reno, Nevada with freshman Nathan Todd winning the 147lb NCBA National Championship with wins over Army, Air Force and Navy on successive days. Sophomore Jacob Maslyk and junior Brooke Jacob were the NCBA Nationa runner-ups in their respective weight classes. Unfortunately, the 2020 NCBA National Championship was canceled due to Covid-19. Members of the Miami University, Ohio State University and Xavier University boxing teams occasionally train and spar with UC boxers as well.
