The Evolution of
Bare Knuckle Boxing
Bare-knuckle boxing is the original form of boxing, closely related to ancient combat sports. It involves two individuals fighting without boxing gloves or other padding on their hands. The difference between street fighting and a bare-knuckle boxing match is that the latter has an accepted set of rules, such as not striking a downed opponent. Bare-knuckle boxing has seen a resurgence in the 21st century and BYB Extreme leads the way with the unique partnership of Legendary Bare-Knuckle Champion Dada 5000. Modern bare-knuckle boxing, a contemporary form of bare-knuckle boxing, exists worldwide.
Back Yard Brawl EXTREME Series has its roots in the urban streets and backyards of South Florida. Originally developed as a way to settle community disputes without the use of guns and knives which were prevalent in the community, Back Yard Brawls grew in popularity attracting trained fighters and celebrities along the way. Dada 5000, co-founder of the series and former competitor, made a lasting impression with the raw nature of the competitions, enough so to attract major media coverage.
