The tradition of Sigma Chi Fight Night is BACK! Planned for September 23rd, 2021 at the Ice Box, 16 fighters will compete in 8 bouts hoping to take home the title of Champion of Sigma Chi Fight Night!
Sigma Chi Fight Night is a Philanthropic Event hosted by our chapter to raise money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute. Together, we can be the Generation to End Cancer. Sigma Chi Fight Night features fighters in different Greek-Letter organizations and students from UNL to fight in three rounds lasting three minutes a piece. Sigma Chi Fight Night is approved and sanctioned through USA Boxing.
Our fighters go through a minimum of four weeks of safety training, learning the basics of boxing and how to compete in a fun, safe environment. We have fighters submit a fighter application to determine any previous boxing experience they may have, basic information, and what weight class they would ideally box in.
Sigma Chi Fight Night will be held at the Ice Box in Lincoln, NE on September 23rd, 2020. Doors open at 5pm, and the first fight begins at 6pm. Tickets will be going on sale soon, so check back in the near future!
One in two men and one in three women will get cancer in their lifetime. Knowing that the world expects more of Sigma Chi's than it does of other men, we decided to do something about it. At the 150th anniversary of the Sigma Chi International Fraternity in 2005, it was announced that Huntsman Cancer Foundation (the fundraising arm of HCI) would become the preferred charity of Sigma Chi. Ten years later, in 2015, Sigma Chi made the largest philanthropic commitment in men's fraternity history by pledging to raise $11 Million for Huntsman Cancer Institute. In 2019, at the Sigma Chi Grand Chapter celebration in Salt Lake City, Utah, an even bigger announcement was made to add an additional $20 Million to Huntsman Cancer, bringing the total overall commitment made by Sigma Chi to $31 Million. To date, Sigma Chi has raised nearly $9 Million of this incredible pledge. Our chapter has an ambitious goal of raising $20,000 and Fight Night is an amazing way for our chapter to reach and exceed our goals.
