Boston Women's Sports interviews John and JoJo Boynton, who sold the Boston Pride and two other teams as part of a deal in which two leagues will be merged into one and a bunch of teams will go out of business.

The two investment groups also bought another women's hockey league, plan to merge the two and eliminate several teams, according to reports last night.
