Team Combat League, the nation’s first and only boxing league with a team-based ownership model.
Team Combat League matches feature 24 three minute rounds of non stop action. Competitors compete in one round matches and are categorized into eight weight classes, consisting of six male weight classes 126lbs., 135lbs., 147lbs., 160lbs., 175lbs., and 201lbs.+ and two female weight classes, 126lbs., and 147lbs. Sixteen fighters or two fighters per weight class per team appear in each match.
Each match is broken up into three periods. The first 8 rounds are the Launch Rounds, rounds 9-16 are the Middle Rounds and rounds 17-24 are the Money Rounds.
TCL employs an exclusive point scoring system and each round is scored individually. Judging is carried out by a panel of three judges which are licensed by a State Athletic Boxing Commission. A round is scored 10-9 for the winner of a decision based on points. If a knockdown occurs, the scoring is 10-8, and in the case of two knockdowns or a stoppage, the round is scored a 10-7.
The scoring process is straightforward: all the individual round scores are added up and the team with the highest total score at the end of all 24 rounds wins!
You see, people want action. They want to see fighters throwing punches, not just holding and dancing around. Back in my day, it was all about getting in there and giving it your all, and I believe Team Combat League can bring back that excitement to boxing.
I’m all about innovation, especially when it comes to my beloved sport of boxing. Team Combat League brings a fresh approach to the ring, and as a boxing fan, I couldn’t be more excited to see where it takes us. For young fighters, this league is a golden opportunity.
When I first heard about Team Combat League, I was intrigued. The whole concept is fresh, it’s different, and it’s exactly what boxing needs. And let me tell you, seeing it in action, seeing these fighters give it their all, it’s something special.
