Watched a good documentary last night Knuckles ... true story of inter clan bare knuckle fighting between families ... bit long winded in parts and some of the fights were average but the story and a few of the fights are well worth the watch     http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flEgKSvlGWk

saw a full lenght doco on the Gypsy fighters, it went through the clans etc, some very hard tough blokes amongst em, was one old feller , in his 60s , still fighting once a month, very rarely beaten . Got a head like a dropped pie, you can tell hes blocked a few with his noggin. showed em training up the young blokes , and showed how they matched em through their earlyfights, once they get a few wins they can challenge or be challenged,  pretty well anyone they want  and there are some big money fights amongst em too.  bloody hard way to make a living though.
