Cpt. Mark O’Sullivan, a company commander with 40 Commandos Group, British Royal Marines, throws a punch at Staff Sgt. Francisco Martinez, a platoon sergeant with Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, during a boxing match, Sept. 22. Francisco, a 27-year old native of St. Paul, Minn., said the boxing was for physical training and fun. Boxing is a common sport for the British Royal Commandos and gave the U.S. Marines an opportunity to train with them. Crowds of both forces gathered around to cheer on the combatants.
