How easy is it to hurt your hands with bare-handed punches to the head?
Is there anyone out there with personal experience of getting into a bare-knuckle fight?
Gloves were mostly introduced to prevent injury to the person you are hitting, but also keep your fists aligned properly. However, you aren't likely to have time to wrap your hands on the street (Unless you always wear them..), so I was just curious. I've just recently gotten into boxing, so please excuse my newbishness in this area.
Edit: And I'm assuming a punch targetted at the correct areas.
