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 yes but why use gloves? May 24, 2019 at 7:55

  • @Nij ok but what's the rationale behind it? I'm assuming they don't make laws for the sake of it. May 24, 2019 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.
