bareknuckle boxing in any sort of official or sanctioned capacity predated film and motion pictures


i already responded to your other thread if i remember correctly

you wont find any videos of bareknuckle boxing

you might find a portrait of a bareknuckle fighter, but you wont find any action shots. film with an instant exposure was not developed during that period. any picture that was taken needed to be of a stationary (unmoving) object

you can find people fighting with fists and no gloves on youtube certainly
they are called streetlights


or if you want to know more about bareknuckle fighters you can read about them

I only watched a minute or two and just embedded it. These guys are just untrained brawlers. I give them points for toughness, but thats it. Doesn't interest me as a sport in the least.

Here's some unlicensed boxing if you're interested. It's not exactly cricket.

There are pictures from a couple of John L Sullivans bareknucle fights. These are said to be against Heenan but I'm not convinced. They could be against Kilrain:

There's a lot of famous photos of the last bareknuckle HW championship fight fought under the London ring rules between Sullivans and Jake Kilrain:
