It seems to me that MMA and boxing fans were scoring the fight differently. BKFC is so young that it's hard to know what the judges will be looking for. Given the image of exciting fights that BKFC is clearly trying to cultivate, Paulie definitely made a mistake thinking he'd win a decision with jabs from the outside.

I gave Artem rounds 1, 4 and 5 although didn't know which way the judges would lean. Bit of a shitshow though. Wouldn't be surprised if Saturday will be looked back upon as BKFC's peak. I can't see bare knuckle ever becoming even close to mainstream.

Re: Boxing Thread

I don't see how it will ever become that popular. I've seen a couple of fights and it seems like the two main considerations are to not break your hand from hitting the other fighter and to cut the other fighter above the eye to stop the fight. And sometimes there's a knockout.

Re: Boxing Thread

It's never gonna be mainstream, hell I'll probably never watch this again unless its names like Paulie vs Artem etc

Re: Boxing Thread

Dubois/Gorman on the weekend. Refreshing to see two young prospects putting their 0 on the line this early in their careers. Gorman is more technically adept but Dubois is just a powerhouse. Joyce/Jennings is on the card too.


Suppose that Saudi Arabia Amir Khan card should be mentioned as well even though its a bit shit.

Sweet Pea dead by random truck wtf. One of the best boxers I've ever seen that boxed during my lifetime.
