    It`s harder to block bare knucle punches and it`s hard not to flinch because it`s so painful getting hit with a barefist, how does bareknuckle boxing defense compare to defense used in boxing rings?

    Should look to the older days.
    Jack Johnson and those who came after him.

    Jack Johnson was a brilliant wrestler, better than a boxer actually. But many of his tactics would work well in modern BKB.

    Btw, first thing you want to do as a BKB practicioner, is switch to a sideways stance. The risk of hurting ones hands makes the body way more attractive.

    Well, that would make sense, to me at least. So holding up a high guard(a version showed in the vide as well), seems a somewhat bad idea.

    More work on maintaining distance and scoring via body shots. Jab, check left hooks and right hands downstairs.

    Forget the high guard and parrying. Just do the opposite of whatever Malignaggi did. That should serve you right.

    I'd like to see some of those 52 Block guys get into bare knuckle boxing.

    much easier to slip punches
    parrying is similar
    blocking, you have to bring the arm up higher


    different stances can work
    example kimbo slice
