The Liver Blow is a standard and frequently used technique in the boxing world.


The boxer directs a hit underneath the target's right pectoral behind the ribcage. If enough strength is put behind the attack, it ruptures the liver, causing internal bleeding which leads the effected individual to experience nausea and disorientation. For hard punchers like ippo, it can also crack the ribcage of his opponents.

Strengths & WeaknessesEdit

It is an especially effective attack in stopping a fast-moving opponent, typically out-boxers. This move is frequently favored by fighters who rely on strength during fights, such as Makunouchi Ippo in his fight against Mashiba Ryo in the East Japan Rookie Championship finals.
