Venda tribe boxing
In northern South Africa, men of the Venda tribe continue the centuries-old tradition of musangwe, a form of bare-knuckle boxing that helps young men cope with present-day challenges.
A fighter enters the ring and holds his arm out with a clenched fist.
He circles the gathered men, waiting for someone to take him on. Soon another man holds out his fist and the fight is on.
A silence falls over the spectators - all of them are men or boys, women are not allowed near the musangwe ring - as the two opponents circle each other warily.
A friend posted some media on this.
Spectators gather to watch the Musangwe, an age old tradition that began three centuries ago where men and boys display their fighting skills.

Although interesting in a cultural sense, I don't think that these guys have much technique except to throw wild hay makers all day long.
What are the rules? Is it just like boxing?
Interesting to see that they use the closed fist like boxers do, even though there are no gloves. By the way if i was a talent scout, i would definitely go there.
