First off, check your snobby boxing elitism at the door. As a FIGHT fan, I love everything BKFC is doing with bare knuckle boxing. They have revitalized one of the oldest sport. The history behind it has lots of mystique and romance. Just being a bare knuckle champion sounds bad ass. Let be honest, as entertaining as a boxing match, or Muay thai, or MMA match is, take off their gloves and it becomes 10x more interesting. Lets not deny it. This is why Kimbo Slice got so popular in the youtube scene. Its why street fights get millions of views on worldstar. Everyone gets fascinated. Putting on gloves is like putting on a condom. It dulls out the experience no matter how hot the bitch is. This is why bare knuckle boxing can get away with having lower level talent. Its because even their fights are exciting! The sound of knuckle penetrating the cheek bone arouses me. BKFC is currently over run by washed MMA fighters. But thats a first step in the evolution. With a very critical signing like Pauli, it can make some serious noise and gain popularity which I look forward to seeing. It will open the eyes of pro boxers and bring in washed out boxers which is the next step in the growth. It will be higher level fighters competing. The product will look better. Until ultimately the signing of prime boxers happens which is very possible if the money in there which seems to be the case as BKFC maintains this momentum. So what are your thoughts? I know older boxing fans are the most closed minded type of fans. But thats on them. I for one love fights. I will stop my car just to watch a fight between 2 chicks even.
