BX Fight Club showcases illegal underground boxing matches that go down in the Bronx, New York. According to The New York Times, the rules aren’t anything crazy, but the fights are unsanctioned, which is illegal in the state of New York. Rules are simple with “three two-minute rounds, 16-ounce gloves, no headgear, and conventional rules evaluated by a referee and three judges.”

Here, we take a look at one of the amateur boxers who has come to be known at “Predator,” sporting a hairstyle reminiscent of the iconic movie thriller character. The interesting part is that “Predator” is 50-years-old!

We see “Predator” go to war in this boxing match and puts the heat on his younger opponent. After two knockdowns, “Predator” connects flush on his opponent again and the referee calls an end to the fight.

As you can see, the crowd loved every second of it. However, is the entertainment worth the risk with the fights being unsanctioned and illegal? Let’s get your thoughts in the comment section!
