Transcript Niffht\ TIME OUT...A fight night contestant catches his breath when his coach gives him some valuable advice. Photo by Tony Bullard. Greeks and Non-Greeks Get Ready to Rumble or the last 18 years the University of Houston Chapter of the Sigma Chi Fraternity sponsored the "Sigma Chi Fight Night." This event consisted of spirit competitions, beauty and banner Contests, Greek unity, charitable contributions and, of course, BOXING. Each year this event came as the result of long hard work by our appointed Fight Night Chairman and the rest of our Chapter. Also, with help from local boxing affiliates, such as the Amateur Boxing Federation, and the Houston boxing community, in general, we were able to host 10 to 20 sanctioned amateur boxing matches. Fighters came either from the University of Houston or from one of our sponsoring gymnasiums, in order to be eligible for competition. Each three minute , three round bout counted as an amateur fight, therefore enforcing the participant's amateur boxing status or adding to their fight total before they become pro. Finally, because the Sigma Chi Fight Night was a charitable event, proceeds were given to some of our local and Sigma Chi's national philanthropies. For instance, the memorable Eighteenth Animal event donated 1,000 dollars to the Muscular Dystrophy Association and in the preceding year 2,OOOdol- lars was donated to the M.D. A. and to the Cleo Wallace Foundation. The Sigma Chi Fight Night not only benefitted the local community, but also the University and the Greek community. There were very few Greek events on campus which non-Greeks participatee in, and this was such an event. It gave others a chance to see what Greek life was about, without stereotypical barriers skewing their view, while engaging their interests and gaining their support. -Ralph Coatsworth, IV THE CHECK PLEASE...Members of Sigma Chi Fraternity presents a check to the Muscular Dystrophy Association for 1,000 dollars.
