FDNY Boxing Team giving back in ‘Beast of the East’ matches

TRIBECA (WABC) — They are already heroes, but the FDNY Boxing Team continues to help others.

The FDNY Boxing Team was established in 1982 as a non-profit organization. The team is made up of members of the FDNY who train for these grueling matches strictly on their own time.

They believe that raising money for worthy charities is well worth the hard work involved. They have boxers of every skill level; some enter the squared circle for the first time, others for the first time in years and a few who box on a regular basis.

In the beginning, there would only be one big show a year vs. their brothers in blue, The NYPD Fighting Finest. The rivalry was very intense and became more popular with each year.
