    Boxing – Battle of the Badges II @LBP_Police versus @LBFire for probably the last time 

    LBP in action against the mighty NYPDAfter the huge success of the Battle of the Badges in April when LBP defeated New York Police Department, it was decided to invite Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service to a similar event. They readily accepted and, due to the increased interest in this sport and indeed the event itself, it was necessary to carry out a ‘box-off’ on 21st September to discover who was to face the might of the Fire and Rescue Service. The ‘box-off’ was very well attended and our thanks go to those that supported that event.

    LBP vs Lothian Borders Fire and Rescue

    On Saturday 24th November 2012 the best fighters from Lothian and Borders Police and Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service will step into the ring for a black tie charity gala night of boxing at the Corn Exchange (New Market Road) Edinburgh, with doors opening from 6pm.

    Building on the massive success of the box-off, which saw eighteen of our best fighters compete for their place on this main event, in front of over 380 supporters and raising over £6000 for charity. The Battle of the Badges on the 24th November is all set to be a titanic battle of Red and Blue. Who will lift the shield and be named to champions of 2012?
