Bare Knuckle
Despite the similarity with boxing in gloves, fist fights are seriously different from boxing matches. In bare-knuckle fights, there is a different distance and a different pace of combat; there is less serial work with striking combinations, and fighters more often focus on strong and accurate single strikes; in fist fights, "dirty" techniques are more common. Due to the lack of gloves, many techniques of protecting hands from blows from classical boxing are not applicable in fist fights. At the same time, due to the fact that fights are conducted on bare fists, athletes have a high risk of injuring their hands when hitting an opponent's hard bone (for example, in the forehead). In view of this, fighters often try not to strike at full force. However, blows with a bare fist in the face easily cause serious dissections, which gives the fights a bloody character.
