The development of bare-knuckle boxing in London

Although it has been centuries old, boxing fists have fallen out of favor, still in the great shadow of its gloved alternative. However, there is a revival going on and some fighters are chosen to fight for the sport. While hardly a box office figure replaces its gloved, it is an important step in the direction of orthodox consciousness.

The battles were organized and promoted by BKB (Bare Knuckle Boxing), a company run by Jim Freeman and Joe Brown, which is the only licensed company promoting the sport. What BKB is trying to achieve is a change in the image of this sport.

The British Council of Boxing Control (BBBC) has kept their distance related to boxing, but partly due to its perception of boxing’s little brother, but they are also completely under no obligation to do so. BBBC has their own sports to take care of, why care about something else?

No matter how closely related it is. Boxing’s bureaucracy is very confusing, with four or five versions of a world champion for every weight category offering a lot of indoor disturbance.


Another factor is safety. The argument about that is safer, boxing with gloves going down to frequency. A single punch, without gloves, will deal more damage – to the attacker’s hand, as well as the guard’s head – than the punch with a glove. Bare-knuckle boxing, without repetitive and constant screams of head-punching punches, has fewer injuries.

The safety argument will continue, just as wearing pads and helmets in American football has made the sport safer or more dangerous. Certainly the lack of boxing gloves in the bare knuckles (they still wear the strap on their hands) makes the sport seem more rough, even visceral, to the viewer.

The competition to prove masculinity and the strength associated with all combat sports is evident in hand fights, if not so, but there are too many factors that need to be arranged in advance when sports can develop. A large amount of sponsorship, carefully laid out business models, endless promotions and bonafide superstars are all indispensable.

Sports may move in the right direction, but they are only small steps – it has a long way to go. London seems to be leading the way.

How is sports industry in the UK after Brexit? (Part 1)

January 31, 2020 is the time to close the winter transfer market of UK football, coinciding with the official time of leaving the European Union of England (Brexit).

How Brexit affects British sports development is unknown, but the last winter transfer was the second highest in history. We will help readers better visualize the current state of sports in this country at the present time.

No serious impacts

The Brexit process takes a relatively long time and has a rapid impact on the socio-economic fields. The solutions to the Brexit problem for British sports in general are not much. Professor Simon Chadwick of the Department of Sports Business at the University of Salford, Manchester said “As far as I know, no specific guidelines have been issued for sports.”

The last time a sports guide was posted on the Ministry of Digital, Culture, Media and Sports website (DCMS) was in early October 2019. Sport England, which decided to allocate government money to sports associations and projects, declined to comment.

The Sports and Entertainment Alliance estimates that the sport industry contributes about £ 37 billion a year to the economy. Government information is lower. A 2018 document shows that 581,000 people are employed in this sector, of which 21,000 (3.6%) are EU citizens.

There is a peculiarity in British sports, that the state is still partially subsidizing many sports. This is part of the “soft power” strategy and investment in grassroots life. As such, Brexit has caused the government to continue to spend money on the top playing system to increase the image of an England described as a “superpower”.

Of course, money flowing into the top will reduce investment at the amateur and school sports level. The British Government has a policy of socializing sports in schools and communities.

The most influence is not in football but belong to professional subjects that have a lower popularity than football. Horse racing is a prime example of post-Brexit vulnerability.

Premier League is committed to completing the season

After two hours of online meeting, the organizing committee of the Premier League had the decision. Twenty Premier League clubs agreed to play the remaining nine rounds.

Before the April 17 afternoon meeting of the Premier League, there were many concerns. One of them is that the tournament could not be restarted because of Covid-19. This may lead to the risk of affecting the 2020-2021 season. However, the pressure from a deficit of more than one billion dollars, if the season ends early. This brings the parties soon to come to an agreement on the commitment to complete the season.

Comments ending the season before June 30, as a commitment to ensure integrity for the 2019-2020 season, were not raised during the meeting. According to The Sun, the organizers and the clubs will wait patiently until the Government agrees for the sporting events to take place.

Another outstanding issue is that the player contract, which expires on June 30, is not mentioned. The damage from failing to finish the season with all 20 Premier League clubs is much bigger. The cost of using the player in a few months is less, if a contract dispute arises. The top group suffered the most losses. In particular, Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham estimate each team will lose over $ 100 million.

Earlier, FIFA also announced that it would side with current host clubs when recommending players to continue playing until the end of the 2019-2020 season.

The UK Government’s point of view

The UK Government’s social extension directive remains in effect until May 7. The number of deaths from Covid-19 in the UK has reached over 12,000. Even when the Premier League starts over and plays in an unpopular courtyard, the live broadcast of the remaining 92 matches, including those played during the summer, is not guaranteed. Television royalties tournaments, therefore, will be affected.

In the First Division, the organizers have sent an open letter to 24 clubs, which recommends not to return to the training ground before May 16.

Coach accepted to reduce salary, Rooney criticized the proposed pay cut

Coach Gareth Southgate agreed to reduce the salary by 30% to reduce the financial burden for the English Football Association (FA) during the pandemic.

Southgate’s current salary is US $ 2.2 million per year, equivalent to US $ 183,000 per month. With a commitment to reduce the salary by 30% due to Covid-19, the England coach will lose nearly 55,000 USD per month.

Southgate’s move comes at a time when players in the UK are strongly opposed to the proposed reduction of salary by the Premier League organizers. Earlier, the FA admitted that it could lose up to $ 123 million in revenue because of Covid-19, due to canceled or canceled events.

Contrary to Southgate, many influential players in the United Kingdom do not accept a salary cut, pushing the relationship between the Professional Football Players Association of England with the Premier League organizers to a stressful level.

Many captains like Kevin De Bruyne (Man City), Troy Deeney (Watford) or Mark Noble (West Ham) argue that the reduction in wages is only beneficial to the owners, and the British government loses more taxes, causing real losses. benefit public services needed.

Rooney criticized the proposed 30% pay cut

Wayne Rooney believes the players were turned into scapegoats as the community struggled with Covid-19.

The Premier League held an online meeting with the Player Association (PFA) and the British Coach Association (LMA) to negotiate a 30% cut on player wages, or allow clubs to delay payment. But that proposal was not supported by some, including Rooney.

Public health secretary of the UK government Matt Hancock led the way in calling players to reduce wages to support the community because they are high-income people.

Rooney’s views are backed by former England players Gary Lineker and Gary Neville. Meanwhile, after a meeting with the Premier League leadership, the PFA announced that a reduction in player salaries could cost the government $ 245 million in taxes.

MU plans to spend 150 million euros for the alternative of Pogba

The leadership of MU is planning to recruit Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid to strengthen the midfield. Expected this deal “Reds” must spend 150 million euros.

According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United are planning to spend 150 million euros to recruit Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid. The Spanish midfielder is considered the perfect replacement for Paul Pogba, who is often absent from injury this season and no longer has the motivation to contribute to Man United.

Saul has just renewed a nine-year contract with the capital Madrid, and 150 million euros is the sum to break the deal. Saul is a versatile midfielder who can play many positions in the midfield, very suitable for Ole Solskjaer’s coaching efforts to strengthen midfield and build the team.

The 24-year-old can take on a creative role, assisting strikers in scoring goals. Saul Niguez has the qualities suitable for the team that Solskjaer coach is building: Young, rich in dedication, world class.

The willingness to pay for Saul’s services showed that the “Red Devils” leadership no longer earnestly kept Paul Pogba. The Frenchman has been away most of the season because of an ankle injury. Currently, there is information that Real Madrid wants to use 100 million euros in exchange for Pogba.

If Saul is successful, the midfield of United will be worth seeing with the presence of the duo Saul Niguez and Bruno Fernandes.

This season, Saul is the most important player in the tactical system of coach Diego Simeone at Atletico. The Spaniard has 37 appearances and has 4 goals.

Does Paul Pogba try to avoid playing for Man United?

In an interview with The Times recently, expert Graeme Souness appreciated Paul Pogba’s talent. However, the Liverpool legend also criticized the attitude of the French midfielder in the Manchester United shirt.

In the 2019/20 season, Pogba has just played 8 games (610 minutes) and has 2 assists. Currently, the French midfielder in the process of recovering from injuries after ankle surgery and has to leave the game long

However, COPE insisted Pogba no longer had difficulty moving, could fully train normally, but refused to play for Man United for fear of relapse.

Pogba’s future at United is a big question mark. The Daily Mail said Pogba could join Real Madrid or Juventus for € 150 million in the summer of 2020. This money could help Man United easily find alternatives in the transfer market and invest in the club. Other positions in the squad.
