Bare Knuckle Boxing

First started around 1700 in Ireland among Irish Travellers (who also sometimes call themselves Irish Gypseys or Indigineous Irish) Bare Knuckle Boxing is now not sanctioned anywhere except a few American states, although fights are pre-arranged with rules, allowing a fighter time to train and prepare making it different from a Street Fight.
