Interesting.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calcio_Fiorentino
Shots from a small cannon or Colubrine announces the beginning of the event. The game starts when the Pallaio throws and kicks the ball toward the center line, then at the first whistle as the ball first rests on field, 15 forwards or Corridori begin fighting in a wild mixed martial arts match- punching, kicking, tripping, hacking, tackling, and wrestling with each other in an effort designed to tire opponents' defenses, but which often descends into an all-out brawl. They try to pin and force into submission as many players possible. Once there are enough incapacitated players, the other teammates come and swoop up the ball and head to the goal.

From this moment on, the players try by any means necessary to get the ball into the opponents' goal, also called caccia. The teams change sides with every caccia or goal scored. It is important to shoot with precision, because every time a player throws or kicks the ball above the net, the opposing team is awarded with a half caccia. The game ends after 50 minutes and the team which scored the most cacce wins.

Apparently bare knuckle boxing is a thing now?



Jesus wept. And she's the one who won. I wonder what the other girl looked like.

Well.

It always was.

Okay, so is any of it real?

"CTE" that is suddenly a "thing" in the NFL is basically dementia pugilistica or "punch-drunk" syndrome, something well known but denied: Ali had it, but it was "better" to call it Parkinson's. He did not have Parkinson's. He was "punch drunk."

Do the gloves lead to more head injury?

Interesting question.

Nevertheless, it is all irrelevant to the fact that we pay to watch men, and now women, beat the shit out of one another. We have been doing this for centuries.

That pontificated, she has as much as a right as any man . . . or rodent who self-identifies as a "man," to get the shit beaten out of her for money.

IIRC, James Cagney, in his autobiography, decried the use of gloves, especially the modern versions, and claimed that bare-knuckle boxing had fewer hits to the head, because, in his opinion, boxers didn't want to bust up their hands. Gloves, in his opinion, resulted in far too many hits to the head.

It is a warning "ol' timers" would make to the "young'uns" who think punching someone in the mouth like out of the comics and movie: "knock his teeth in/out!"

You get a lot of teeth embedded in your knuckles with the really fun infection that will follow.

Unless you just break carpals and metacarpals.

I'm pretty sure women's bare knuckle is not about the noble art boxing.
