JK- T.Johnson and Stothers...JK 's bloody fist-print on the body of Johnson ...who also was bothered by the body blows....JK 's hand liked it too ..softer than the helmet.

Ever heard of Billy Irwin from Niagara Falls?? he was a lightweight who ended most of his fights with the "left hook to the liver', it was a beautiful thing, he was top 10 for awhile in the late 90's, perfect punch.....
Back in my Boxing days I had a guy ask me to spar oneday, a colored fella who said he had never sparred before (which was obvious bull$hit), he was about 15 lbs heavier and a bit taller.......anyways into the ring we went and this guy's arms seemed like they were 8 feet long!! he was beating the $hit out of me, I couldnt get out of the way of this bastid's punches, even when I thought I was way out of range "pop" he'd nail me, this made me really mad, I could take a shot so I kept coming t him and he was obviously trying to KO me......I chased this fukker down stopping his punches with my grill for 2 and a half rounds when finally I cornered him as he seemed to be gassing and just blasted him with a single left hook right on the liver, he let out a "groooooan" and hit the deck, all his air left him, writhing around on the canvas like he took a bullet!! I said "get the fukk up, it's my turn now"!! he stayed down, I wanted to hurt him bad, but I didnt realize he already was hurt bad from about the only punch I landed in the whole 3 rounds!! It saved face because everyone in the gym was watching him beat the hell out of me until I caught him, I really wanted to put him to sleep but it was at that moment I truely realized you can hurt a guy way more to the body....he never showed his face in the gym again.
