Yale student president challenges Harvard counterpart to boxing match

Wednesday November 19th, 2014


Yale and Harvard are set to square off for the Ivy League championship on Saturday in the 131st playing of "The Game" and Yale College Council president Michael Herbert is looking to extend the battle outside the gridiron by challenging his Harvard counterpart to a boxing match.

It seems that Harvard Undergraduate Council president Gus Mayopoulos is not up to the challenge though, as he has turned down the offer to step in the ring with Herbert because his improv group has a show scheduled for Friday night.

Turning down the fight has only emboldened the Bulldogs, who are keeping up the trash talk via Twitter.
