History Documentaries

This is the history of bare-knuckle fighting in Victorian Britain, a brutal sport that seeks to decide the undisputed champion of the world. The rise of fighters like Tom Spring, who came from humble working-class origins to become sporting superstars, paved the way for Tyson Fury, Mohammed Ali, and Mike Tyson. Bare-knuckle fighting was a sport with few rules, no gloves, and often resulted in death. The fight between Tom Sayers and Jack Heenan marked the end of the era of bare-knuckle prizefighting and was a turning point in the history of combat sports.
