London (PRWEB) November 02, 2016
In the first-ever U.S. vs. U.K. special forces boxing event, the world’s most famous special forces regiments will battle from opposing corners at the Remembrance Rumble in London’s York Hall on November 11, 2016. London’s Sun News and SOFREP will livestream the event to their Facebook audiences on November 11th.
“We’re excited to own the U.S. rights to this event which was sold out weeks ago, and we anticipate doing an event in America next year,” says Brandon Webb, event co-sponsor, former U.S. Navy Seal, and founder/CEO of Force12 Media. “Presenting Remembrance Rumble on the day that we both honor veterans shines a light on the people who have served our countries and allows us to give back to that community.”
Showdown Across the Pond
The ten soldiers--with an average of 17 years of service to their respective countries--will fight in matches ranging from Lightweight to Super Heavyweight. Twenty-two year SAS soldier Phil Campion and founder of the Remembrance Rumble, tops the bill as Super Heavyweight “Hampshire Hammer” named after his first regiment The Royal Hampshires.
“We staged an SAS boxing event earlier this year and it sold out,” says Campion. As reported in London’s Daily Express, Campion says. “We thought it would be nice if we could fight some geezers from over the pond. I got in touch with Brandon Webb and that was it. It was on.”
Proceeds from the event will benefit Talking2Minds—a U.K. charity that helps those suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), The Pilgrim Bandits—a U.K. charity that coordinates motivating activities for injured service personnel—and The Red Circle Foundation--which benefits the families of the U.S. special operations community.
