Sigma Chi fraternity held their 9th annual “Battle of the Greeks”, also known as Fight Night, boxing tournament Thursday and Friday night to raise money for cancer research.

All the proceeds went to the Huntsman Cancer Institute.

There was an upset in the championship match.

Reigning Fight Night champion Kyle Dahl lost his title Friday night to fighter Chase Proctor, a sophomore from Bowing Green.  Kappa Delta sorority sponsored each fighter.

The event was held at the Jaycees Pavilion, also known as the Blue Dome, both nights.

“It’s an event that all Greeks can agree is better than any party,” said Louisville sophomore Chris Peege, a member of Sigma Chi.

The event raised $10,000 Thursday night alone through ticket sales.  In previous years, that was the around the total amount the event made over the course of both nights.  

Georgetown senior Elizabeth Mulholland, said there were many fights Thursday night, but only seven on Friday night.

Mulholland, one of Sigma Chi’s ring girls, said this was her second year being a ring girl.

“Our primary section is the VIP section,” Mulholland said. “We go around and mingle with the alumni and hand out alcohol as well and we do the signs in the rings.”

Fight Night is the last event in Sigma Chi’s Derby Days.  Kappa Delta sorority accumulated the most points throughout the week and won an “Italian Wedding” with the fraternity.
