PRINCE GEORGE, B.C.—Sixteen men have come to this northern British Columbia city to duke it out tonight in the Battle of the Hockey Enforcers, an event that strips away all the other things associated with the game — teams, goals, pucks and sticks — and focuses on fighting.

Up to 32 fights will happen over three hours in front of fans who have paid from $35 to $200 to watch it live or anted up $24.95 for pay-per-view television across Canada.
