MOHEGAN SUN, CT (June 2, 2023) – Tonight, live from the Mohegan Sun Expo Center in Connecticut, Team Combat League (TCL) returns with its version of Friday Night Fights. Boxers will battle all out one round at a time in team format, representing their city, across six weight classes. Fans can watch live on TCL YouTube page.

The first match will feature two teams fighting for their playoff lives, the LA TenGoose (1-5) versus the Dallas Enforcers (2-3). Former Dallas Cowboy and Carolina Panther Greg Hardy will be making his second TCL appearance following his stunning debut last week against DC, in which he singlehandedly almost willed Dallas to victory. Social media sensation Abimbola Osundairo will be making his TCL debut for Dallas. In a rematch of a highly competitive pro match that lit up the internet when both fighters landed uppercuts at the exact same moment, Benjamin Whitaker of Dallas will seek revenge for his majority decision loss against Vlad Panin of LA.

The nightcap will showcase the Las Vegas Hustle (3-3), coached by Dewey Cooper, facing off against Barry Hunter’s DC Metro Destroyers (2-3). Alantez and Mykal Fox of DC will become the fourth set of brothers to appear in a TCL match. Not to be outdone, the Hustle have their own set of brothers, Michael (The Bounty) Hunter (20-1-2, 14 KOs /Pro Record), who will clash with childhood friend Hasim Rahman Jr. (12-2, 6 KOs) and his younger brother Keith (The Bounty) Hunter. Keith brings his own style of street fighting to TCL. This match showcase the TCL debut of Roy Jones Jr. protégé, Andrew “White Lightning” Murphy, of Las Vegas, who will face off against DC amateur sensation Nasheed (Sugar Sheed) Smith (2-0 in TCL). Most Valuable Fighter Candidate Quincey Williams (9-0 TCL) will be in action for DC putting his undefeated record on the line.
