On Thursday afternoon, inside of the hybrid Split-T Boxing Gym / One Kick’s Gym in Las Vegas, NV, Team Combat League held open try-outs ahead of the launch of their official sports combat league.

We had spoken with trainer Dewey Cooper about the try-outs last month, and he informed us about a “new professional boxing league starting”, with a concept that was similar to the NFL, NBA, and other team sports.
