I won't be surprised if they used that visualization in the manga.

Ippo can land a dempsy roll, all he has to do is daze him long enough to pull it off. It's already been mentioned several times already that it doesn't work on opponents that are not stunned.

Anyway, Ippo needs to step out of the norm to win this fight. If Woli is jumping around like a monkey, Ippo should do the same. If I was Ippo I would risk a penalty to score a heavy hit to scatter the brain a little to even the battle field. Hell, I wonder why Ippo hasn't tried a clench strategy yet.

Clench him and then deliver one of his signature rib crushing liver blows.

Best boxing manga ever.

Anyone got any good recommendations for other boxing mangas?

PS. Dempsey Roll against a speedster? That's a no no, unless he is stuck in the corner. Which this guy looks like he can jump straight over. It looks more like Ippo is going to take every hit looking for that "one" KO.
Ashita no Joe? Haven't read it myself, but it's one of the biggest Boxing manga's out there. If you like realistic martial arts manga's, try Holyland, All Rounder Meguru and Karata Shoukoushi Kohinata Minoru (last one is less realistic as the previous 2).

Because you would need to catch him first... and plotwise, because Morikawa probably wants an Ippo who doesn't use that kind of strategy.

I can't remember what boxer was the one who use that strategy, but motivated by Ippo's will power, lost the fight looking for the KO.

I remember there being a punch that could prove to be dangerous to even the best of opponents. Has Ippo tried to do a feint with killing-intent like he did to Sendo a while back?

Maybe thats the move he will pull on woli to start his comeback.

Seeing that Ippo took Gedo by surprise with a heart break shot and Miyata gaining the head turn and crocksrew counter, I won't be surprise here if Ippo went for a counter move.

I feel extremely jipped(sp?) with chapter 881. It wasn't even a full chapter and it ends so abruptly, unless there was a problem with where i was reading it.

2 places I've seen it have only 9 pages scanned.....whereas it's normally 18 pages. So I'm not too sure what occurred.....as it didn't even have the usual epic speech at the end of the chapter.

yah same here seen it on 2 sites and was only 9 pages. Seems to be a extremely short chapter with nothing really going on.

881
wtf

i barely began reading and it ended.Future chapters better not be this short.

maybe Morikawa couldnt figure how the fight will soo change to ippos favor so he cut the chapter short.

That was a pretty short chapter. I was surprised, but what was there was still interesting in a morbid sort of way. Hahaha, Ippo's all like 'shorter! tighter! faster!' and then he gets owned.

Don't read chapter 881. It's like a few pages missing from 880.

Hope 882 will bring something up like Woli having a glass chin or a weak body.


EDIT:

882 - RAW

Spoiler for He's Gonna make a comback~!!!!:
