Why is bare-knuckle boxing illegal?

Bare-knuckle boxing was outlawed in most states due to its brutality and the growth of traditional boxing with its in-depth guidelines. However, just like MMA and its battle to change perceptions and gain acceptance, bare-knuckle boxing is slowly gaining legalization across the country and is now legal in 25 states.
