Of course I am talking about that one. There are two body shots, that I will never forget...Roy Jones vs Virgil Hill and Arturo Gatti vs Ward. During one you could hear the ribs cracking, during the second you see what is the difference between a man and a warrior ! Memorable...just memorable...To me, Ward's body work has never been matched...although he got to showcase it only in the lower echelons of boxing excellency (C,B- fighters) it just can't be compared. But that's for another thread...
Body shots are NO joke! I caught one in a street fight, and gladly, he wasn't sure if he wanted to hit me there or not. I believe he just wanted to hit something, because he couldn't hit me in the face at the time...and boy did he.
You know how street fights go, 2 or 3 punches get thrown, then cats wanna wrestle. I just remembered being pressed up against a car and all I could do is wiggle and make sure he didn't hit me in the face. I just played doppleganger and hit him in the body a couple of times when we resumed. That's the last time I'll fight while Im drunk/buzzed, unless I get the first hit. I got clinched and tip-toed up against that car the same way Guerrero forced Berto against the ropes. College memories
You know no-fighting cats are...their homeboys are just waiting to jump in, so I had to move quick. I hate that shit! Anyhow, the last time I saw somebody get abused to the body in an impressive fashion, was when Golovkin fleeced Proska...or better yet, watching Vernon Paris shift Tim Coleman's liver last summer.
