    Not really.

    The bokken was made to train people to kill, no ifs, buts or maybes, frankly you could kill with the bokken itself. Boxing gloves and MMA gloves were made to stop hands ripping open and lengthen matches for spectator value.

    MMA and Boxing competitors tend not to be terribly interested in killing their opponent, however, some boxers have loaded their gloves with powdered or liquified metals and I have no doubt looked for a way to slip brass knuckes into the gloves undetected. If you look at the era where boxing was notoriously associated with the Mafia I'd say Boxers and brass knuckles had more in common than the sport's image really needed to surface.
