You really think you people have the market cornered on fighting? I've been
at it since grade school. Why do I do it, because it's fun. I haven't gone
at it in 20 years though but I used to love it. I wish I had a bit more

@firglenchainsaws When you'll use your hands to strike a human skull and
taste what it feels like, then you'll understand why they "dance" so much
instead of demolishing each others. Look how many times you'll be able to
deliver full punches on the floor. You'll quickly understand why
professional boxers switched to gloves boxing; form a spectator point of
view bare knucle boxing is more boring than modern boxing... only from a
spectator point point of view

@firglenchainsaws Can you do better ore you just have a big mouth ?

Author AurisDJ ( ago)
@mairead4567 sure you can just look at this fight in this video they are so
great at fighting they are fucking scared to punch all they do is run
around or when they punch each other the punch is so weak so fuck off you
fucking farmer

Author Jack Jakes ( ago)
@firglenchainsaws I dont see you doing this so don't criticize
them...Pikeys have heart and courage and there proud of there country and
what they do unlike us...we work for money and they have to fight for
money...they have had it hard like us but they have just been unfortunate
so to the people that criticize them fuck you, because these are the people
that can teach these chavs 'whos hard' on the streets today

@firglenchainsaws what say do u have most of your videos are about farming
and hunting u should start off fighting. farm animals to start with maybe a
pig or a duck but i doubt you would beat either. so so go back to your farm
and eat your dinner from a pig troff u fuckin pussy

Again we could appreciate these young animals more if they were in tight

Author Fattboy26 ( ago)
@megatomo4444 I have been training in boxing for 10 years and I am alot
bigger than them. And yes I dont blame them for being scared of being hit
by the bare knuckle but the way both move show displine that brawlers dont
have. But then again this shit does not really appeal to me anymore unless
for money. Ego does not pay the bills or medical expenses.

Author megatomo4444 ( ago)
@Fattboy26 sorry but neither are good fighters, movement isnt bad but
fighters no, the problem is that alot of tinkers are scared of being hit,
granted bare knuckle does damage but if you dont engage the clip above
happens (fuck all)!! id have both these kids out within a couple of minutes
each, having said that im alot bigger then these kids so a tad unfair. to
be a fighter you have to punch and these lads dont qualify!

Author justaman6972 ( ago)
pow ,that over hand left at 1:08 got his attention. the dark haired lad is
crafty and paitent loading that left up for some caveman clubbing.pretty
good match...headhunter both of em,

Author Fattboy26 ( ago)
Actually both are good fighters and I suspect both have trained in boxing.
To those that critise them try stepping in the ring for 2 minutes and see
how you go. Its easy sitting on your ass watching this and thinking I would
do this or that but you wont. Bunch of armchair warriors.

Author HomicideHenry ( ago)
I am glad to see there are still men out there who carry on the old
tradition of the London Prize Ring rules. God Bless them all.

Author Tobey Force ( ago)
Haha, gosh, those guys would be so done for if they were versus a martial
artist who could kick or do takedowns. Although seeing as it's boxing, I
understand they aren't allowed. Waste of time regardless. But I'm being a
douche commenting, I chose to watch this after all.

Author 98softail ( ago)
I think that was the biggest waist of time. I hope nobody paid money to see

Author firglenchainsaws ( ago)
HALF AN HOUR? They spent most of that dancing around eachother like flies!
A proper "fighter" would have demolished either OR both of these wankers in
less than 5 minutes!

Could someone please press the "tracking" button on the VCR? Also, this is
a boring fight....there is no KO.

Author Ed Gein ( ago)
Man this is pants. Lenny McLean would be ashamed of you! This isn't a real
fight. A real fight shouldn't last more than a couple of minutes. Look at
videos like Lenny McLean vs Roy Shaw. 2/3 minutes of intense brutal
beatings. That is a real fight

bastard normally i only have to hit you clean once and it's all over mate
but maybee coz im a fighter im a bit biast but hey what fighter aint jay
from east london. any challengers want to put up so proppa dough and have a

Author David Thompson ( ago)
The dark headed one is the charger but he's landing hardly no punches.

Author StuffyG ( ago)
Everyone saying this is boring has to understand bareknuckle. Everybody
fights a bit more open and at a higher pace their first fight. Then they
realize that it is a better idea to pick clean, 80% power shots for the
chin or work a hook to the body to keep from rolling your knuckles. I
rolled the right-middle knuckle so bad it looked like I had a golf ball in
my hand. Some fighters take a few shots early just to bust your hands and
hope not to cut, so yeah, feel out the timing.

man if only the southpaw guy is more aggressive.

Author boobsnexplosions ( ago)
@besiovsky yeah and your to fucking stupid to even spell amateurs.. I say
both these guys would kick your ass any day of the week you fucking
tosser.. For a street fight they had pretty decent technique finding their
distance keeping hands up high setting up punches and keepin distance with
the jab... not bad at all for a streetfight... and ofcourse they are
amateurs its a fucking street fight you moron

sounds horrible where you live.

@TheAdhd128 Its Illegal !

Author dubled14 ( ago)
they are ok. the reason they dont hit eachother alot is because they wont
take as many chances when its bare nuckle. gloves are for pros that brake
there hand with one punch and break peoples faces at the same time that
could kill people thats what the gloves are for. this shit is just good fun
but stupid inless you have no punching power. i dont even see any tape. if
they could punch they would have tape because there wrists would break. no
puncking power and alot of sit still fighting. lame!

Author nagone11 ( ago)
Some poor fundamentals from both, no real working the jab while comming in
and throwing punches off from that. Not working off of the jab well, poor
feinting, nobody really sucking anybody in then "spitting them out". Poor
body work, i saw atleast about 10 occasions where the body is sitting open
and these guys are headhunting. Hit a man in the liver or kidney and see if
he don't go down!! Hell, a fight like this could go on for hours.

Author irishsurfer2000 ( ago)
@TheAdhd128 well your spelling is illegal in 17 countries

Author Gary M ( ago)
@rottweilerfromhell you're absolutely right. I say put gloves on these guys
and let them have at it. people would pay decent money to watch these two
guys fight. they're not bad at all. just timid because they're trained to
fight with gloves on

Author TheAdhd128 ( ago)
is this a sport in irland or is it illegal

yourself look stupid :) go outside and see some sun light :) maybe make
some friends?

Author Alexthekid1991 ( ago)
@oliviamatthews If you would use what brain you had left in the small head

turn on? many girls are into 3d animation you dork? not all girls are
immature little pricks like you thatdrop their panties for popular guys ^^,
and that's pretty sad. you know you've been owned so you try and use our
ages difference as an excuse when you've been shut down :) and this isn't
arguing mate :) you'd know when i'm "arguing{" with you..

Author Alexthekid1991 ( ago)
@oliviamatthews lol wow your pathetic.. yeah i sure will go back to doing
maya :) its my job and called being employed. something you have no idea
about :) instead of sitting on your ass all day acting like a twit on
youtube, grow up stop being an immature idiot and do something constructive
with your life :) oo.. and don't bs about having a life, numerous people
commenting on this video know you don't :) stop pretending <3

Author Alexthekid1991 ( ago)
@oliviamatthews wow your the perfect example of someone who doesn't get any
attention in real lfe, you have to go on websites to get any form of human
interaction.. do us all a favor and delete your youtube account <33 love yew

himself he was only waiting for a counter and those fake punches became
really predictable.
