13 Air Assault Support Regiment Royal Logistic Corps have won the Army team boxing title, ending 3 PARA's unbeaten record of never having lost a competition.

13 won by four bouts to three, with each of the four two-minute round contests going the distance .

Privates Humm and Whiteman saw off Craig and Limbu from 3 PARA at Bantamweight and Lightweight respectively.

Private Middlemiss won a split decision for the Paras over Pte Sanderson at Light Welterweight, while Privat Mpofu secured a fine win for 13 Air Assault at Welterweight over Private Sheridan.

It left 13AA needing just one more win, which came in the penultimate fight at Light Heavweight - 13's captain Private Abel scoring a unanimous win over Private Holmes.

The other two bouts were won by Corporal Turton and Private Childs for 3 PARA to make it 4-3 overall, ending 3 PARA's record of winning all eight titles they had fought for.
