When Clive Martin embeds with the bare knuckle boxing elite, what he discovers is not dissimilar to Fight Club; IT technicians, builders, lifestyle coaches and even a solicitor, all throwing their unprotected fists into each other's faces. It's a subculture of honour, pride and violence. As the UK prepares to play host to the first US versus UK bare knuckle title fight in 150 years, 'the biggest event the scene has known since it went underground in the 19th Century', Clive tries to find out if violence is a cause or effect for these angry young men.
