Foreign Legion: Two legionnaires are 2022 French military boxing champions

During four days, between November 2 and November 4, 2022, the French Military Boxing Championship took place at the National Center for Defense Sports (CNSD) boxing hall in Fontainebleau, in the metropolitan area of Paris. Dozens of boxers from France’s armed forces (Ground, Air, Navy and Gendarmerie) participated, including those from the Foreign Legion. The championship returned after a ten-year pause.

Following the competition that showed a perfect fighting spirit of the participants, two legionnaires were given the title of military boxing champion of France: Corporal Andrei from the 13th Foreign Legion Demi-Brigade (13e DBLE), who won the heavyweight boxing class 91+ kg (over 200 pounds/91 kg), and Brigadier Andres (corporal in cavalry) from the 1st Foreign Cavalry Regiment (1er REC), who won the cruiserweight boxing class -91 kg (up to 200 pounds/91 kg). Congratulations!

These results proved that within the French Armed Forces, the Legion still provides men with a very high level of physical training.

PS: Note that the names are forenames only, because of the current anonymity rules of the French military.
