Too bad he didn't have titanium nails

I wanted to start getting into this manga for the hell of it - got 12 volumes in - but I started reading on dynamiteglove that *prime Ippo* couldn't beat Takamura from chapter 1, and it seemed to be pretty universally agreed upon.

What the fuck is that shit? Is Ippo just forever getting marginally better after taking severe brain damage in every match to beat up pussies in the featherweight category? That seemed to be the gist of it from what I've read. And what's with the nonsensical Dempsey Roll shit?
>>
>Bison has a magical invisible hook
>Takamura keeps eating it because
>He suddenly stops eating it because
>Wins because magic big toes

Fight was fucking awful. Morikawa lost his touch ages ago.
>>

Takamura is like twice his weight and an actual genius fighter. Ippo is more or less a one-trick pony.
>>
>>137975076
>featherweight not beaiting heavyweight who slims down to middleweight
Gee, I wonder why.
Not enough oxygen in his muscles I guess
>>
>>137975076
1: Weight classes exist for a reason
2: He does get better, but still does too many stupid mistakes and uses one dimensional boxing
3: Dempsey Roll is real, just exaggerated like everything else
>>
remember when the fights were about actual technique and physical improvement?

At least it's not Wally or Malcolm Gedo.
>>
>>137976767
That was only good because everyone really really wanted Itagaki to get BTFO. And it was glorous, though it really wasn't Itagaki's fault.
>>
>>137976796
Remember how Ippo in the Rookie King learned how to deal with infighting killer uppercuts while diving in an outboxer's stomach?
Good times
>>
>>137976796

malcolm gedo was way better than wally though

>>137976767

do you have the image where he gets his shit pushed in?
>>
>>137976920
Both were fucking shit.
So was Scratch J, though that was a little less shit as well.
>>
>>137976920
I have this
>>
BTW, Chapters 1126 and 1127 are out.

Miyata still fights fodder in the OPBF cause he has no drive now that he has no promised match-up with Ippo and dealth with his daddy issues
>>
>>137977147
Honestly the manga just went to hell right after Miyata cancelled their marriage.
>>
>>137975076
It's hard beating a guy twice your weight. If Takamura cut to Ippo's weight though Ippo wins hands down.

Ippo gets better and better but the way they fight is really arbitrary, Miyata can actually punch faster than sound, and Ippo ended a fight in a single hit.
>>
>>137977205
>If Takamura cut to Ippo's weight though Ippo wins hands down.
Maybe, but it'd be because he'd be fucking starved and dehydrated. Takamura is still a lot better than ippo in technique, instinct and versatility, not just size and power.

I actually laughed, the fangirls were a great gag.
>>
It would be a nice twist if Wally beat Ricardo Martinez and Ipoo had to fight him for the belt. Wally is the greatest genius in the manga after all.
>>
>>137977425
It would be a nice twist if you shut your fucking face and Wally never ever appeared again.
>>
>>137977281
Takamura is just perfect at everything. He basically exists for the sake of winning.
>>
>tfw you are invested in this series but the ending is 25 years away and you know you won't live that long
>>
>>137977391
Sendo always makes a chapter great as well
>>
Sendo's teacher is a QT. Will they fuck?
>>
>>137977425
Coach did say that Ippo would never in a million years be able to defeat Wally again no matter how hard he trained. It would make sense if Wally murked him. I think Wally was written out of the story because George was embarrassed at creating such a character.
>>
>>137977491
60 years old or just in shitty health?
>>
>>137977595
Ippo should have just lost that shit fight.

Or at best, draw and win via judge favoritism
>>
>>137977425
It would be better if we had a fight between Takamura and Woli, not necessarily a boxing match though.
>>
I think the BIson fight is when i completely gave up on Ippo, too much oxygen and magic toes. I just get my sports manga fill from kohinata minoru now.
>>
Does anyone know the chapter where Itagaki starts sreaming "LEFT LEFT LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT" as he was fighting his rival?
