There have been just a few bare-knuckle fights in our great country in the last 120 years, but none of them have been legal.
That's about to change as bare-knuckle fighting has been sanctioned again in the United States.
According to Bleacher Report, the first gloveless fight in over 120 years will be fought on Saturday, June 2, in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and will feature current professional boxers and former UFC and Bellator fighters--including Bobby Gunn, Ricco Rodriguez and Maurice Jackson.
Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship President David Feldman believes the sport is safer than fighting with gloves, which protect hands but not heads. He adds that the formerly outlawed sport might even cause less serious head injuries.
