    I don't like the explanation that there are fewer deaths therefore bareknuckle is safer; there are so many reasons this can be true; I'm guessing this has something to do with it:

    I think this guy is a little high on his own ideas. In the "championship" fight he posted his opponent looks terrible. I also can't fathom why they both head hunted in a bare knuckle fight.

    I'll bet a good Greco Roman wrestler could beat Gunn for the bareknuckle title, via repeated throws on an unforgiving surface.

    On what basis do you think this? A concussion is a deep-tissue injury. Deep-tissue injuries are easier to inflict when your own surface areas are protected (as in American football). Why would boxing-versus-bareknuckle show any difference in this regard?

    Plus drastically increased nutrition and conditioning. When barenkuclee boxing was in vogue, a four minute mile was believed mathematically and physically impossible.

    Yes, but it was taken of the menu by the Marquess of Queensberry.
