Bad match for Ippo. Ryu has greater attributes and ranged attacks in his arsenal.
Ryu is a martial artist , which means he is a better fighter
Uh, no. That's not how it works, Bruce Lee admitted that Muhammad Ali would beat the shit out of him. The form of martial art doesn't matter as much as how much you've mastered it, and how strong/fast you are yourself, this isn't rock paper scissors
But that's besides the point, Ryu is just flat out stronger than Ippo
@ImDictatorBowDown: For the most part it does say both are experts take the ufc for example I cant see a straight up boxer lasting long against a person who knows a variety of martial arts. Boxers are punch only they have nothing else low kicks would be devastating to a boxer and especially if they were put on the ground they know nothing about grappling.
