    It's totally cheating. Even if the ref doesn't catch it, it's cheating if you break the rules. And headbutts and elbows are against the rules.

    Top 5? Hmmmm:

    1. Takamura vs. Hawk
    2. Ippo vs. Sendo (2nd)
    3. Date vs. Martinez
    4. Vorg vs. Elliot
    5. Ippo vs. Gonzales

    I'd say anything that the judge doesn't call falls under veteran tactics.

    Which is a skill set in itself.

    Oh man i remember that Golata nutpunching brawl, nothing subtle about those lowblows. On a related note the Sawamura - Mashiba foulathon was a good one. And y'know i'm gonna be the only guy here who thinks this but i enjoyed the early match against that guy with the weak punch and who crossarmed blocked and neutralized Ippo

    Maybe Mashiba will learn a lesson or two?

    Marron is going to get Iga killed though.

    What use is a world ranking if he can't keep fighting afterwards?

    Seems like a sink or sink a little later on strategy.

    But i guess Marron only wants to cash out on the trainers rep.

    Nice to know that even when he's matured, Mashiba is still a dick.

    Poor Ippo. Looking back at why he's lost, and it's so simple. Must make him feel like an idiot.

    Cool detail to put in if it's true. And I can't believe the coach didn't catch that. But I guess he got swept in Ippo's style of winning.

    I'm going with he got engrossed in Ippo's resilience. Basically they got overconfident and got confortable in winging it.

    Falling in love with one succesful aspect and forgetting the basics sounds pretty true to the fall of many great fighters. Isn't that an essential factor in what happend to Mike Tyson, started looking too hard for the big knockout and forgot all about the set up required for it to land. I could see that being the inspiration since they have compared Ippo to Tyson from time to time

    It probably why I like it. It seems obvious but at the same time I can see the coach love and trust in Ippo blinding him to Ippo being too reckless. And Ippo is so much about heart I can see him forgetting some of the fundamentals.

    It's kind of what Woli's trainer was talking about where they have form they have develop a version of boxing that would destroy Ippo because they are forgetting about being reasonable and just focusing on having guts.

    Wow, when shounen grit and determination are what causes the heroes downfall instead of their victory. Forgetting fundamentals is a pretty good character realization.

    And i seem to remember Volg's trainer noting that the coach does idealize the idea of guts despite how it usually turns out. I dunno if that is a call back but it feels believable enough for it to be a blind spot for the coach. I mean it would seem fairly in character for a man who previously ruined his own hands on the stubborn belief that heart > all.
