Boxing used to be brutal
1931: 6'6" Primo Carnera vs Victor Campolo 6'9"

Lightweight gloves, they throw all kinds of elbows, the ref just lets them brawl.

^ I think it's a lame gimmick. If they just wanted smaller boxing gloves with less padding that could have been easily achieved.

Why would they have fingerless gloves in a sport with no grappling? The chances of eye pokes is significant.
