3 PARA have retained the Army Major units Boxing title, but it could not have been closer as their arch rivals 2 PARA took them all the way to the final bout in front of a capacity crowd in Colchester.

After 8 bouts, this pulsating encounter stood at four all, 2 PARA had raced into a 3-1 lead at the break only to be pegged back by first when Liam Giles floored his opponent Jamie Found at Light Middleweight, then Jay Williams beat Ronnie Harris .

The next two bouts were shared, before Heavyweights Joe Allen and James English were sent in to settle things. Allen looked to have the better of 3 PARA who are unbeaten in ten years of Army competition, but he was knocked to the canvas with seconds remaining. Most thought it was enough to win it for the upstarts - the judges disagreed. 3 PARA remain Army Boxing Champions

It was a fantastic night of Army Sport and a triumph for the Parachute Regiment.
