Once regarded as something that happens exclusively in Guy Ritchie films and on gypsy sites, bare knuckle boxing is fast becoming a thriving scene in the UK -- the ultimate British bloodsport.
When Clive Martin embeds with the bare knuckle boxing elite, what he discovers is not dissimilar to Fight Club; IT technicians, builders, lifestyle coaches and even a solicitor, all throwing their unprotected fists into each other's faces. It's a subculture of honour, pride and violence.
As the UK prepares to play host to the first US vs UK bare knuckle title fight in 150 years -- the biggest event the scene has known since it went underground in the 19th Century -- Clive tries to find out if violence is a cause or effect for these angry young men.

The American fighter looks like a well trained professional but at the end I'm doubtful that the organisers pays him well to sleep down with just one punch, the way he lay down on his belly was doubtful.
Glass chin from a shit talker. I dont care if I'm from the USA. The other guy humble and only talks of family will always win. You talk negative you end up negative. The positive will come out positive. And I almost forgot, it happened again. Emagine that.
It is somewhat depressing to me, that I was never as tough as these Gentlemen. Not by a mile. I have endured no small amount of pain in my life, I deal with it every day, so maybe after the first few ass kicking's, I might have been middling, but ONLY in my youth, not now. I used to have a furious 'Berserk' type temper, which would have served me in this situation, but only if I can control it and think, not just mindlessly attack. . . The very few 'scraps' I had, I generally would charge my foe like a pissed-off Hippopotamus, and try to constrict, choke, tear at the face and eyes. I once stuck my pinkie finger in this other kids eye, who had me in a headlock, and yanked. He let go But with therapy, medical marijuana, and old age I can keep that Fury chained-up. If my fellow 'Yank' wanted to win, he should have grown a handle bar mustache and 'out-Gentleman' the Man from the Land of Good Manners. Would have thrown him off his game, and even if you lose, you win on the "Sporting Gentleman" aspect. That would have driven the U.K. insane. Since I am old, I was taught the art of being a kind Gentleman. I'd bet a Franklin that I could best any Son of the U.K. in a manners contest!
My preoccupation is about break the hands since there is a lot of videos and people that argument about it,i have in sime streeet fights but ended very soon,i was never able to punch with a very hard direct punch,i don't know is mith ir you really can punch harder the head for exemple.
O.k yet the guy hosting this program looks like he wouldent last 2 secounds in a bar knuckle fist fight...maybe even 1 secound...sorry but someone hast to say it also he looks like he just fell out of bed..and he looks about 12 years old on top of it WTF? At least get a proper man to host this not a little boy.
Just a thought... if from ancient years people fought with their bare hands,and if ancient martial arts were also with bare hands, like in the first olympics in Greece, and I don’t know if you’ve heard of the ancient martial art Pagration.... how come the Brits invented Bare knuckle boxing??? Not hating, just saying...
As an Irish American I gotta say I'm glad Mc Crory came out on top. Shows heart is way bigger than Your standard US sales pitch peptalk Trump talk bullshit. And that's what 's going to happen to that German scum Trump after he gets done running his mouth too mark my words.
there are hard cunts very hard in a certain few over here.... and that's why we are the best in the boxing scene … the old cunts have gone now your looking at the fresh... no training just beers down the pub some of these cunts just don't get that's a proper traveller man and it is in there genes to fight and no im not a traveller just seen it
As a (non-redneck) American, I would like to thank this man (and the country of Ireland) for publicly whooping that arrogant idiot's ass and putting him in his place. He couldn't even take a punch. I can't stand people like him.
this is what a fixed fight looks like guys... always a foreigner taking a dive for people on their home turf... it's really how the japanese invented professional wrestling after ww2. they never tired of seeing giant american wrestlers taking dives because of much smaller local guys. also the reason 'pride' in japan was a cash cow for foreigners who didn't mind taking a dive on japanese tv
this will never happen in the US, The MMA tried this in 2012 and the US BOXING COMMITTEE would not sanction it. Silva even offered 25 million dollars for the license and they turned it down. The risk is way to high for death. Most men now days can lift over 200 lb and kill someone with just there hands
Is it possible, with humane rules, competition rules, the way MMA have had to restrict hits. This is like boxing, reduced gloves to no gloves, so where is the border...1 once gloves acceptable??? Kind of a joke. I think a bare knuckle league would be exciting.
Haven't felt so happy in a long time! That Yankee was soO unlikeable! VICE probably had a hand in making him thus, but still.
And that McCrord, who almost overslept, might have been drunk, and certainly needed to get punched a bit to fully wake him up … loved him!
Loudly cheered his victory, startling my co-worker…
Hooray for Ireland!
We're living in a fucking strange & funny World . In India , they poop everywhere . Here , they drunk like crazy since their first breath . In USA , crazy Evangelicals are buying planes to Scammers Pastors . In Yemen are drug addicts . Gypsies indian are snakes lovers . These ones have nothing to do than kicking each other ass .etc etc Ahaaaaaaaaaaa
Anyone that knows anything about real fighting will know that the Irishman had the upper hand by getting there so late. The American most likely already had a massive adrenaline dump by the time the fight actually started. It's a known tactic, that you know a gypsy's got to be well aware of, used to make the other person become tired before the fight already happens. I like that the American was almost painted as the bad guy, too. He was called "brash" and the guy just seemed calm, honest, and annoyed by how everything was taking so long. That's typical Vice "journalism", ha.
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
