NYC Attitude boxes to semifinals of Team Combat League

Brooklyn-born boxer Trudy Li says boxing used to be a solo sport until the Team Combat League entered the arena.
Team Combat League boasts being the world's only boxing league with franchises where men and women compete together. The league is made up of six teams that compete against each other in five male weight classes and one female.
Each match consists of 18 three-minute rounds, scored individually. For New York native Jaica Pavilus, fighting for this team is a dream come true.
Coach Benny Roman says his NYC Attitude squad is basically family.
"Our team is like a brotherhood and sisterhood, so we're together it's for one common cause, which is to win and cheer for each other," Roman said.
Attitude brawled its way through the regular season to a record of 5 and 2, finishing second overall. Now, it's all about laying it all on the line to bring home a title for this city.
New York City Attitude will face the Washington D.C. Destroyers in the semifinals on Aug. 15 in Long Beach, California. Team Combat League will crown a champ on Aug. 20.
