NYPD settles disputes in the boxing ring in the ‘Bronx Tough Turkey Tussle’

A shuttered fertilizer plant in the Hunts Point section of the Bronx served as the latest venue for an NYPD boxing event, which this time around was called the Bronx Tough Turkey Tussle.

Approximately 5,000 people — most of them off-duty cops, their families and friends — watched and cheered as officers with the NYPD settled disputes in the boxing ring at the New York Expo Center.

Police officers and sergeants from across the city proceeded to pummel one another for three one-minute rounds, their anger and lack of boxing experience both evidenced by wild swings, red faces and stumbling feet. (Yahoo News)
