To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Royal Logistic Corps (RLC), soldiers in Aldershot have jumped in the ring to showcase their best boxers.

The Royal Logistic Corps Boxing Championship took place at St Omer Barracks Gym over four days, culminating in 12 exciting finals.

The opening bout of the evening was at bantamweight, with Private Humm of 13 Air Assault Support Regiment (13 AA Sp Regt) getting the win following a second-round stoppage by the referee, after a standing count for Private Briggs of 6 Regiment RLC.

This was followed by a second win for 13 AA Sp Regt as the Boxer of the Night, Lance Corporal Stevenson, was given a unanimous win over Private Clark of 27 Regiment RLC in the Lightweight Bout.
