Francis Ngannou’s coach announces the new season of Team Combat League

Francis Ngannou’s coach recently announced the release date for the second season of his team boxing competition as the sport looks to garner a new audience.

Dewey Cooper, president of Team Combat League, revealed that the competition is returning to streaming on March 28th, 2024.

The TCL brought a unique and fresh spin to the sport of boxing when it was first introduced in 2023.

Cooper said: “It is 24-rounds of professional boxing action. Fought between two teams to find out which city has the best fighters.

“There are 24 individual rounds, and at the end of the 24 rounds, the team with the most points wins the competition.

“You get one round to impose your will and show your skill against your opponent; the next round is a whole new group of fighters, with men and women forming each team.”

The first season of the competition attracted a number of big names, including 2012 Olympian Michael Hunter.

And the second season has promised some major talent for the roaster.

Cooper said: “We have World Champion Ava Knight from the Las Vegas Hustle team and Greg Hardy, a very popular guy who was an NFL player and UFC fighter, and he has fought bare-knuckle, and he will be fighting in the Team Combat League for the Dallas Enforcers team.

“The New York City Attitude team returns as the current champions after winning season one.”

The 49-year-old is preparing Ngannou to fight Anthony Joshua on March 8th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, with the winner of the fight being best placed to fight Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk as the Ukrainian and Brit fight to be the undisputed world heavyweight champion.

But immediately following the Joshua bout, the Americans’ attention will turn back to the TCL, with the competition bringing their mega brawl finals to London later in the year.

Cooper said: “It is insanity, but in a great boxing package.”
