  • Ishe Smith tried this a few years ago. I think he only had one or two fights though. So did Paulie Malignaggi and he actually lost. I’ve watched this stuff, it is absolutely brutal, but not particularly high on traditional boxing skill and I’ve seen guys who I think are better boxers, several times, lose to more crude type of brawlers. Good luck Austin.

  • Why o why.. always liked Trout but at 37, dont think bare knuckle is a good choice for keeping your marbles intact

    • always liked trout was a pretty decent fighter but this bare knuckle stuff he should stay away from it could get seroiusly hurt i never watch it little too brutal for me
