New Dempsey Roll
After Ippo's fourth title defense against Shimabukuro Iwao, the Dempsey Roll's weakness against counters became apparent to boxers all over Japan. Not wanting to drop his best weapon, he works to improve it. The result is a Dempsey Roll that stops and starts abruptly, avoiding counters and throwing off the opponent's rhythm. However, the sudden movements put a great strain on the legs and hips, and overuse can cause permanent injury. Ippo first uses it to defeat Sawamura Ryuuhei in his fifth title defense.
