Anyone following bare knuckles fighting? Seems to be making a comeback on Youtube.

There is a promotion in NA, but they fight in a boxing ring. On YT there is a British one where they fight in a barn with stacks of hay as the boundaries. There is another one in Russia doing the same. Both are extremely entertaining.

The Brit one seems to have stopped because of pandemic. However, the Russians dont seem to care.

Response: Opinion

As a boxing fan my whole life and having presided over many local and Golden Glove fights I do not advocate
this sport as the the chance of permanent injuries far outweighs the meager amount of money one can take home.

Unless an organization can setup a Compensation/Disability Fund to protect the fighter
I can only wish to see it's timely demise.

How this anymore injury prone than gloved boxing besides the cuts?

Maybe let the boxers wear boxing headgear.
