What is the point of using the gloves that leave the knuckles exposed that the Florida State Boxing Commission is imposing for bare-knuckle boxing?

  • You do understand the point of calling it bare-knuckle, right? – Nij May 24 '19 at 7:52
  • @Nij yes but why use gloves? – Franck Dernoncourt May 24 '19 at 7:55
  • Because the law requires it, as your own snapshot says. – Nij May 24 '19 at 8:56
  • @Nij ok but what's the rationale behind it? I'm assuming they don't make laws for the sake of it. – Franck Dernoncourt May 24 '19 at 8:57
  • This is the Florida State Boxing Commission under discussion. Clearly someone defined what boxing is and requires in order to be considered legitimate, and that includes gloves. – Nij May 24 '19 at 9:04
