    Modern Bare Knuckle

    It is often said in this forum (and elsewhere) that the stylistic differences between LPR pugilism and modern boxing are driven by the differences in rules and equiptment.

    I thought it would be interesting to compare the various modern styles of BK to LPR


    NHB

    YouTube - UFC 2 Johnny Rhodes vs Patrick Smith

    American BK boxing

    YouTube - Kimbo Slice vs Chico Grande

    Traveler boxing

    YouTube - A long pikey fight, A good old fashioned bare knuckle fight

    Good thread, but don't confuse modern Irish BKB ("traveler boxing", etc.) with London Prize Ring boxing. There are significant technical and rule differences.

    This is actually closer to the LPR style and rules (albeit, obviously, a friendly sparring match):

    YouTube - Axel vs Milo

    And this one - again, a friendly training match, in this case between one intermediate-level pugilist and a relative beginner:

    Thaks for posting that first one. I was looking for that exact clip for comparison.

    Not confusing them at all. Rather, I was looking to compare. The Traveler (fair go) rules are closer to LPR, I guess, than the others. But the point is to have a look at various solutions to the demands of BK striking.

    One more form:

    Can anyone put their hands on some footage of Paddy Docherty fighting?

    Total aside:

    Take a look at the dude with his hand on Johnny Coyle's shoulder in this clip:

    YouTube - The Fighting Irish - Bare Knuckle Boxing - Hard As ****

    I think I spotted him as a old geezer (at 4:40)
    YouTube - Danny Dyer's Britains Deadliest Men 2, Part 6 of 6 Patrick Docherty

    Docherty looks a bit like Ken I think (young and old)

    Is it just me or is there something "Pikey-esque" about Igor's standup? Compare to James Quinn in the Traveller fight in the OP.

    Not many Knacker fights get put online, if there's 100 on youtube there's 1000 on vhs and betamax that'll never go up.
