Default It's Time For Boxing Announcers To Take An Anatomy Class!!

Hey guys,

We heard this in the De La Hoya/Hopkins fight, and we just heard this in the Hatton/Castillo fight, "He goes down from a liver shot". Excuse me Einstein, but the liver is in front of your body on the opposite side of your heart. How the **** could a guy go down from a liver shot when he gets hit near his lats? Those were kidney shots.

It would appear that your diagrams bears out that both shots (Oscar and Ricky) WERE liver shots.

Did you see the punches?

From my bio class recollections, your kidneys are near your back. If you punched someone about 6 inches above either butt cheek, you'd be in kidney area. Your liver, sits just behind your ribs, and I think it extends a little bit south of your ribs o your right side. So a shot going up & in on your right ribs would hit the bottom of you liver. But that's just my memory from bio class.

You don't feel a kidney punch unless it hits you on your back. It was definitely a liver shot.

Of course I saw the punches...did you? The first diagram is where the punches landed. The liver does not extend all the way around towards your back. Those punches were much closer to the kidney than they were to the liver. In both cases, the fighter landing the body punch had to go behind their opponents elbow to land. To call those punches "left hooks to the liver" would be like calling the opposite a right hook to the heart". The heart is located right where the liver is, except slightly higher and on the opposite side of the frontal torso.

Once again, the liver is located in the frontal part of the torso. Castillo is covering his liver, Ricky went behind the frontal torso behind the liver and towards the kidney.

That's not the ko. Unless its an after shot. He had his arms crossed initially. Maybe be a split second later. Hmmm.

You see that space between JLC left elbow and that mass of muscle called his lat? Well, on the opposite side of his body is the same empty space between his elbow & his lat, and in that space is the sweet spot for the liver shot.

it doesnt matter if you think its in the front, when you get hit on the side your ribs bend with the shot and those ribs do make contact with that liver, again it was a liver shot.

A shot to the kidneys could not possibly break two ribs. Hatton-Castillo was NOT a kidney shot. I can't even remember the Hopkins-DLH shot in detail, but I do remember it being pretty unimpressive.

As Mike Tyson said- "I understand anatomy", despite saying that he was trying to drive Ferguson's nose cartilage into his brain (not physically possible).

You're an f-ing idiot and must be pretty young. The kidneys are closest to the back. They behind other organs from the side. If you were older, you would probably have had a kidney infection or stones sometime in your life. Then you would damn well know by the searing pain where your kidneys are.

I don't think I saw Hatton throw a punch remotely close to the kidneys throughout the entire fights. An effective kidney punch is to the back side of the torso. If you'd ever been hit to the kidneys or had any kind of kidney ailment you would know this without a 3rd grade science book diagram.

Not right either. It's most likely a ribcage shot.
