    Doesnt that defeat the purpose of calling it bare knuckle boxing? Does it still count bc the gloves expose the knuckles? Why have them at all then?

    well legally, you cannot have bareknuckle fights in 95% of the televised world.
    This is their idea to expand.

    Real genius running that ship.

    That would be like going to a topless bar and all the chicks are wearing bras but their heads are chopped off.

    Wtf. They need to just hold events where they can do proper bare knuckle fights. This shit is niche as niche can get no need to think about expanding it or making it more palatable. Just be what you are.

    I don't even mind if it's bare knuckle driving gloves. I don't want any thumb or any support in terms of handwraps. This shit we are seeing is just a boxing glove. Shit at this point I would prefer they use MMA gloves without handwraps.

    I agree there's not a lot of money to be made there but I think there's more to be made by the sheer spectacle of fighting bare knuckle than there is with this bastardized version of an mma glove. Bare knuckle kind of retains that holy shit factor, this is just what boxing with mma gloves with washed out mma fighters. Loses a lot of its edge imo.

    Those gloves can't be real. I've never seen anything more stupid in my life. Sure, we knew the BKFC guys were morons, but please don't let them be that retarded. Seriously. Please.

    This is a pretty big fight by any standards considering the hype surrounding it. They will have needed a decent sized venue, therefore if these monstrosities are real there must have been a licencing issue of some kind.
