bare knuckle boxers are just tougher in general because they hit with actual hands.

I accept the task to disprove you that pro boxers are not only better fighters but indeed tougher than a bare knuckle boxer. Lets get this show in the road.

I would like to state what I consider "tougher" means. Tougher means harder hitting, more skill, and is overall stronger and can take punches better. Pro boxing involves skill and you must dedicate your life to training and conditioning in order to be good. However with bare knuckle boxers you do not have to meet these standards that a professional must meet. Many bare knuckle boxers are not in half as good of shape as many pros, nor are they tougher. If you were to put the best bare knuckle boxer against the best pro boxer it would be no contest. This was done in the past where a champion bare knuckle boxer went up against a pro boxer.

The fight speaks for itself the bare knuckle boxer just couldn't last against professional punches. Proving the pro boxer is (by my definition) tougher. You must also keep in mind this is not the toughest pro boxer, against the best bare knuckle had to offer. Just by looking at bare knuckle fights, then pro fights you can clearly see pro boxing is superior for example these two videos.

Pro Boxing involves skill, agility, and strength as displayed by the two videos, but even if you are a pro boxer not as good as Mike Tyson, you can still beat any bare knuckle boxer around. Bare knuckle boxing is glorified street fighting make no mistake.
Vote for me.

He is clearly unable to refute such an incredible case, nor does he have the testicular fortitude to write a response. Vote for me.
