Last night, the Royal Marines came out on top as they faced the United States Marine Corps in a historic boxing match in London at The Royal Lancaster Hotel.

This is the first time that the two fighting forces have met on UK soil, with the fight being billed as the ‘Rumble across the Atlantic’ - a truly extraordinary night of sport, pride and respect between two close allies, proudly hosted by The Royal Marines Charity.

The Royal Marines Club was proud to lend its support by helping to secure the attendance of the United States Ambassador to the United Kingdom, Robert Wood "Woody" Johnson IV.
