Default What is this whole BkB thing?

And why is it on PPV?

Both Rosado and Vera are not PPV material and they decide to match em up in some circus show and make it a PPV event?

Is BKB something that they're trying to build up? To be the next UFC? If so, I ain't paying for this shit. At least not Rosado vs Vera

"Big Knockout Boxing" sounds quite interesting. As this article argues, it might be the next evolution in boxing:

For those boxing fans who like action, this setup seems like it would really deliver.

If it's 20 bucks or less, I'd pay for it. I might even consider it if it was slightly above this More than 30, fuggedabowtit!

At first I thought it was a legit bare knuckle fight, turns out they still wear gloves but their is a slit on the knuckles.

I'm not sure why Rosado and Vera don't just fight in a ring

BKB has changed the format. The fighters will now wear traditional 8oz-10z boxing gloves depending on the weight class.

I dont see how it's going to spice boxing up to be honest.
Not having ropes isn't gonna do anything but eliminate any times when someone is caught and forced to slug there way off the ropes. Guys will still be able to box at range and move about the ring only the danger of someone cutting the ring off and trapping them in a corner is removed. Unless they are going to penalise someone for tripping and falling onto the slanted walls that surround Ďthe pití

It's a novelty that will draw crowds but I really donít see it having any big impact on changing the way people look at boxing or combat sports
