From Soldier to Champion

We are proud to be sponsoring a fellow veteran
in his fight for the WBU (World Boxing Union) Semi Pro Welterweight World Title!

Fellow veteran and Semi-Pro boxer Jack Thompson joined The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment (PWRR) in December 2009.

“As soon as I joined the regiment, I was fortunate enough to secure a position on the Regiment’s Boxing Team. I boxed for The Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment for two years”.

“During the first year, I competed in the Army Individuals Championship but unfortunately, I lost in the quarter finals. However, in 2011, I went back and won the Championship which led to me being selected for the British Army Boxing Team”.

“The Army Boxing Team was another level because you are boxing with lads who have boxed for England, Wales and Great Britain. It was really hard but it was amazing to box with such a high-level standard of boxing”.


“I left the Army in 2013 and I started boxing again in Aylesham where I come from. I met a guy called Darren who has been my promoter for four years. Since then, I have been semi-professional fighting and have recently been added to the WBU World Title Fight on October the 14th”.


Do you feel ready for this fight?

“My opponent has had over one-hundred amateur fights and turned professional with Frank Maloney, now known as Kellie Maloney. He then had three fights in America and on the semi-professional scene he has had twenty fights and won twenty fights by knockout. So I am the underdog even though the fight is my home show”.

“Nonetheless, I have age on my side as he is forty years old. I’m training six days a week and I’m feeling good”.


“I’d like to thank Soldier to Civi for sponsoring me, I really appreciate the support” – Jack Thompson.
