Do you ever find yourself thinking, “man, I wish there were some kind of hybrid combat sport between boxing and mixed martial arts?”

No, of course you don’t. If you like boxing, then you like boxing. And if that’s not enough for you, then you like mixed martial arts. Anything in between would just be a novelty.

Or at least, that’s my opinion. The folks at DirecTV certainly hope I’m wrong, as they’ve come up with just such a hybrid sport, which they’re calling “Bare Knuckle Boxing,” or “BKB” for short. Obviously, it’s boxing without the gloves. Except that there are gloves.

Wait. Now I’m confused.

Okay, there are gloves, but they’re smaller, so the punches hurt a lot more. I guess “Smaller Gloves Boxing” just didn’t have the same ring to it.

In any case, BKB is coming exclusively to DirecTV on July 27th. Take a look at their commercial:

If that looks like your cup of tea and you don’t have DirecTV, you’d better get on the phone with them ASAP, set up an installation, and then clear your calendar for a couple of days so you can wait around for the guy to show up.
