its interesting a lot of people argue that Queensbury rules and gloved fighting has made boxing more lethal. theres more blood in a bareknuckle match ofc, a lot more.not sure how it would work with ppv tho, from what ive seen in the bare knuckle events ive been to, fights can either be very long or very very short. and its very different game to a gloved fight, ur as likely to see guys losing fights from broken hands as thru ko. might see a whole different group off fighters come up who arnt making it happen in the mma or boxing circuit.

yeah you're definitely not as likely to take sustained punishment/blows to the head in bareknuckle boxing.but bareknuckle boxing is much more like a fight than a sport, whereas i see boxing as a sport where athletes have to follow rules

they would be following london prize ring rules, which are as follows:

1. That a square of a yard be chalked in the middle of the stage, and on every fresh set-to after a fall, or being parted from the rails, each Second is to bring his Man to the side of the square, and place him opposite to the other, and till they are fairly set-to at the Lines, it shall not be lawful for one to strike at the other. 2. That, in order to prevent any Disputes, the time a Man lies after a fall, if the Second does not bring his Man to the side of the square, within the space of half a minute, he shall be deemed a beaten Man. 3. That in every main Battle, no person whatever shall be upon the Stage, except the Principals and their Seconds, the same rule to be observed in bye-battles, except that in the latter, Mr. Broughton is allowed to be upon the Stage to keep decorum, and to assist Gentlemen in getting to their places, provided always he does not interfere in the Battle; and whoever pretends to infringe these Rules to be turned immediately out of the house. Every body is to quit the Stage as soon as the Champions are stripped, before the set-to. 4. That no Champion be deemed beaten, unless he fails coming up to the line in the limited time, or that his own Second declares him beaten. No Second is to be allowed to ask his man’s Adversary any questions, or advise him to give out. 5. That in bye-battles, the winning man to have two-thirds of the Money given, which shall be publicly divided upon the Stage, notwithstanding any private agreements to the contrary. 6. That to prevent Disputes, in every main Battle the Principals shall, on coming on the Stage, choose from among the gentlemen present two Umpires, who shall absolutely decide all Disputes that may arise about the Battle; and if the two Umpires cannot agree, the said Umpires to choose a third, who is to determine it. 7. That no person is to hit his Adversary when he is down, or seize him by the ham, the breeches, or any part below the waist. A man on his knees is to be reckoned down.

two men fight, until one is downed, when a fighter is downed that marks the end of a round, the downed fighter has 30 secounds to return to his feet and begin the the next round. ur allowed to strike with the elbows and strike behind the neck and kidneys iirc otherwise the same as regular licensed boxing.
