USF set to host boxing tournament

For the 11th year, college boxing will take place on the Hilltop.

USF's Koret Health and Recreation Center will host the Hilltop Cup tournament, which is today at 6:30 p.m. Boxers from USF, Cal, USC, UCLA, San Jose State and Santa Clara are scheduled to compete at Hagan Gym. The tournament is the largest and longest-running intercollegiate boxing event in the state.

“We expect top-caliber competition at this year's Hilltop Cup,” said Angelo Merino, USF's coach as well as an adjunct professor. “Earning a spot to compete in the Hilltop Cup takes hours of training and dedication. There is clearly a camaraderie among competitors, and it will be exciting for spectators to see the result of their hard work.”
