There is a kinship between those that have served on the field of battle. SOFREP TV invites you to step into another field of battle, the boxing ring – where veterans from both sides of the pond go toe to toe for the sake of their brothers and sisters in arms.
“The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero uses his fear, projects it onto his opponent, while the coward runs. It’s the same thing, fear, but it’s what you do with it that matters.” – Legendary boxing trainer, Cus D’Amato.
Filmed on location at the historic epicenter of boxing in England, York Hall in Bethnal Green, London, former members of the British and American military lend their fists and fighting prowess to multiple charities — raising $43,000 for veteran’s causes on Remembrance Day, also known as Veterans Day in the United States.
As former SAS trooper Big Phil Campion put it: “People gave everything they had, not just a little bit, so that we have the liberty to walk around these streets. And there’s STILL people out there prepared to give that if they have to… we need to remember them. They are our foundation.”
Here at SOFREP, we believe in the fight; in the blood, sweat and tears; and we pull no punches — especially when it comes to serving those who also served. You’ve seen us go Inside the Team Room, now join us inside the ring as our veteran brawlers strike with purpose, and fight with honor at Remembrance Rumble II.
