    Default First sanctioned bareknuckle fight in the U.S. since 1889

    It's taking place tonight, at a casino in Arizona. Cool article on ESPN if you want to read it. It's also online for free if you want to watch at ustream.tv

    Bringing back a bygone, bare-knuckle era - boxing - ESPN

    I am predictable huh?

    This is VERY cool. It really is a different sport though. Very tough to throw hooks or uppercuts without breaking one's hands and the goal really has to be to bust the other man up with cuts.

    This is pretty interesting. I hope nobody gets an orbital bone broken or anything serious.

    Not sure if you read the article or not, but they will have 2 ref's. Also if the cut is really bad a cutman will be give 30 seconds to work the cut. If i'm home in time i might have to check it out.

    Yeah I did. It's pretty far from the bare knuckle fights of the pre-Sullivan days. But it's a heck of an experiment isn't it?

    Something like that.
    Or better yet, Columbia Pictures' "Hard Times" with Charles Bronson, James Coburn, and Strother Martin, 1975.

    Of course we did it here is Arizona, I saw the ads for this, but it just didn't register correctly. Boxing, MMA and bareknuckle all on the same card.
    For every story told that divides us, I believe there are a thousand untold that unite us.

    Arizona seems damn flexible on such laws.
