The first boxing competitions for Michigan State University began in the mid 1880s with informal field days and were later continued by the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association (MIAA) Field Days until 1892. In 1935 boxing became a varsity sport. The MSU boxing program ended in 1958. Scheduling competitions had become a problem because the only other team in the Big Ten with a boxing schedule was Wisconsin.
