SOUTH BOSTON, MA – CES Boxing CEO Jimmy Burchfield Sr. will be hosting a press conference at Peter Welch's Gym in South Boston on Thursday at 1pm to announce the city's newest sports team, The Boston Butchers. The event is open to the public.

The Boston Butchers is the newest city to join Team Combat League (TCL), an innovative team boxing concept where teams compete against one another in a season schedule and the winners face off in the playoffs to decide a Champion.

"I'm very excited to present The Boston Butchers to the city of Boston," said Burchfield, who serves as the team's General Manager. "We've put together a tremendous team featuring fighters from all over Massachusetts and New England. The level of talent involved is unbelievable and we plan on adding to the championship glory that other Boston teams like the Bruins, Celtics, Patriots and Red Sox have brought to this great city."

Each TCL match features 24 bouts across boxing's 8 original weight classes. What's unique is that each bout is scheduled for one 3-minute round and is scored by a panel of 3 judges. A round is scored 10-9 for the winner. If a knockdown occurs, the scoring is 10-8. In the case of 2 knockdowns or a stoppage, the round is scored 10-7. After 24 rounds, all the individual round scores are added up and the team with the highest total score is announced as the winner.

Members of the press, boxing fans, and the local community are invited to join us at Peter Welch's Gym to meet the fighters, the team's head coach Marc Gargaro, and General Manager Jimmy Burchfield Sr.

Details for the press conference are as follows:

Date: Thursday, April 4th

Time: 1pm EST

Location: Peter Welch's Gym, 371 Dorchester Ave, South Boston, MA 02127

*Open to the Public
