Like I said earlier the people behind BKFC have put an extra emphasis on aggression and engaging, partly because they are white trash savages and partly out of necessity due to the shorter rounds (which I think themselves are a way to mitigate damage to hands and faces for TV). They tell the fighters the judging is skewed toward engagement and they even have (or at least had) a financial penalty they can levy if a fighter doesn't engage enough.
This was not a 12 round boxing fight. The fact they let Paulie off the hook by breaking up the clinch so fast was already doing him favors. He moved backwards the entire fight, he took the most damage, he failed to slow Artem down for any amount of time. If he really broke his hand it only goes to show if they had another 7 rounds to work in it most likely would have been Artem left standing, Paulie was already breaking and stuck on defense.
Plus, again, this was not a boxing match and was scored slightly differently. It is related to boxing but it is a unique sport. If people keep doing this they will actually have to adapt their styles to become uniquely effective for bareknuckle combat, such as picking shots more carefully, targeting soft areas of the body such as the liver, spleen, and solar plexus more, and turning the hand over into face shots to try to maximize damage while minimizing breakage. Watch Bobby Gunn explain a bit about the differences between BKB and boxing. It's all about footwork, defense, and picking targets for hard shots. If you don't fight carefully you will continue to break bones and eventually they won't hold up anymore.
I'm sure in a boxing match Paulie would have a good chance jab'n'jogging his way to victory with Artem, he's clearly superior technically (in boxing), but that's assuming he isn't washed up already with his best days behind him (obviously he's retiredfrom boxing).
BKFC rules favor Artem just like any other rule set would favor Artem because Artem is the tougher, stronger fighter overall, fights with more aggression, and actually has many more tools at his disposal to beat Paulie than Paulie has for him (outside of boxing). Paulie is a boxer and a fairly one-dimensional boxer at that. An old Paulie is an extra-beatable Paulie.
TLDR. You clearly know about as much about boxing as you do Mma. Jack shit
The bitter little bitch appears. Go home roll
