The Return of Bare-Knuckle Fighting

Click to share this post.

Believe it or not, bare-knuckles boxing is really less dangerous when it comes to potential head injuries than boxing with gloves. This was the argument presented by promoter Dave Feldman, and it persuaded Cheyenne, Wyoming to hold an upcoming pugilistic event (without gloves) on June 2nd. This event is indeed rare, since it will be the first of its kind champion boxing match since 1889. There are new rules, though. Who knows? Perhaps fisticuffs without gloves will catch on and become popular again and this event will thus be historical.

Key Takeaways:

  • A sanctioned and regulated bare-knuckle boxing event
  • The Return of Bare-Knuckle Fighting
  • Weight classes will be similar to those found in MMA

“In those days London Prize Rules governed boxing, whereby sweeps, takedowns and throws were permitted. In the updated version of fisticuffs, weight classes will be similar to those found in MMA, and standup-style grappling that allows for the fighters to hit with a free hand will be permitted.”
