Two Dot boxers join pro ‘Butchers’ team

The Boston Butchers, a new pro boxing team, will debut on April 11 with two Dorchester pugilists— Tevin Regis (2-0) and Anthony Hines (16-2)— taking their place in the ring.

The Butchers is part of the newly-formed Team Combat League, which has teams in 12 different cities, including Boston, Los Angeles, Houston, and New York City. Most rosters are comprised of boxers raised in the areas they fight for – such as Regis and Hines. The Butchers train together daily at Nonantum Boxing in Newton and come together for meets where 24 bouts are fought, but each fight is only one round (three minutes).

“At the end of 24 bouts we add up all the scores from the individual fights and have a winning city. We plan on bringing a championship back home,” read a statement from the Butchers.

The first meet will be Thursday, April 11, against Washington, D.C., in the Oceanside Ballroom, Revere Beach. There are five total home matches for the season, with the other four staged at Royale in downtown Boston on Tremont Street.
