There I was, another day at school, another pocket money taken from some freshman weakling! It was great, I only needed seconds and a good punch to knock that pussy out! I bought a beer and some smokes, a got out of class early to take a nap in the rooftop. Another good day work here Kyoto! But I was disturbed by a bothersome guy, he said I was cancer for the school and he was the cure! "What an idiot!" that's what I thought at first, yet he decided to test his luck and fight me. I jumped off from the water tank landing in a really cool way, and prepared to face him, I took my usual stance and he stood in a weird way, I thought he was drunk or just plain crazy. I stood there for a second, I even lowered my guard, looking at him with plain surprise he didnt even flinched and in a blur I was knocked down! I didnt believed it and the moment, I thought that guy was cheating, but after standing up, I got beaten down again, faster that I could notice. This kept on for three hours, he pounded me faster that I could notice, and I'll stand up to face him. In the end I was so stunned by so much blows that I started seeing lights around they guy, like a freaking anime shit of some sort! Even so, I finally fainted, and that guy was nice enough to take me to the nurse office.
When I woke up he had already left, and I was too tired to search for him. The whole month after my recovery I was searching for the guy without any luck, yet I kept looking for him, I wanted to beat him up at first, but then I decided to ask him how he beated me up and learn. In the end i spent almost 3 months before finding him, as my memory was kind of blurry after getting so beated up. When I finally found him I had to spend 3 other months to make him teach me. Even if he said he wanted to teach me out of pity and because I was bothering him so much, I know he acknowlodge my skills. He said that to get as good as him I would need to get a hundred dojo plates. I nodded and went to work. I took me a full year to get all the plates (Spent most of it recovering from my losses) Yet I managed to pull it off, and that guy appeared to be suprised out of my success, surely to make me feel better. He didnt accepted me as pupil just yet, even after saying some carp about my battle spirit changing, becoming brighter or some shit like that. I didnt knew what he was talking about, the only thing I knew is that I wanted to get stronger, and that lately that search consumed my time so much I didnt bullied weaklings or anything like that, and I could say it felt weird, yet the constant self-training and fighting against stronger opponents was better than beating up weaklings.
The guy, whose name I can remember only told me to focus on Boxing while I took another 900 dojos. I had to quit school and travel throught Japan, working as construction worker, or betting for myself in underground matches. I got better this time, I only worked for 2 years beating 2 or 3 dojos each day, and getting less wounds. I think the experience only got what was excellent to perfection, and I was tougher than anybody in Japan. I'm the God of Toughness, you cant beat me up, I'll rise again from my ashes like a motherfucking phoenix and beat you down with all my might! In the end I only was taught one technique, the one that he used to beat me. He called it Ghost Jab Hurracaine, and according to him it was part of something called Spirit Boxing. It is a shower of right punches (I'm a South-something, how could that sounds?) that according to him are faster than sound (What the hell does that mean?) He explained me that I need to complete my own set of punches, that was the rules of Spirit Boxing. He was lending me the Jab, as he was surprised upon my effort and determination.
Now I roam throught the world, searching for strong fighters and new techniques to complete my Spirit Boxing Winning Combination. My name is Gen Shishioh, and I'll get to the top of the fighting world! So watch out for my fists!!!

Fighting Spirit and Boxers
The Spirit Boxing Federation (SBF) was created not so long ago as the discovery and proper classification of Fighting Spirit as well the techniques to refine it from raw Spiritual Energy. The SBF was founded by Magnus Von Panzer, sometimes called Magni, a German soldier in the WWI that discovered the Fighting Spirit upon dire situations. He studied this technique and travelled to the East, finding about the masters of the Inner World, capable of similar or even greater feats with Kiai. He learned what he could yet he noticed the crucial difference between both energies, the Kiai comes from steady training and meditation, meaning is built upon the balance between physical and spiritual energy of the user, the Fighting Spirit (Originally called Kampfgeist by Magnus) is fed by the user resolve and determination, feeding from his desire to fight or another desire such as blood thirst, power or pure and unaltered emotions like hatred or rage. Mostly negative or not quite positive emotions are what feed the Fighting Spirit. Magnus started looking for other prospective fighters and he started a journey around the world identifying other Spirit Boxers that suddenly started to pop up.
With the WWII starting the count of Spirit Boxers was at least 50 all over the world, and a dozen or more potential candidates. During the war some of the Boxer participated in each side and some of the first duels started in the battlegrounds all over the world. The duels before this had some rules or gentlemanly rules, but after a taste of the excitement of no-holds-barred matches the Spirit Boxers duels changed into what we know in modern times, fighting until one breaks, drops, surrenders or dies. Magnus, now an old man (circa 1950) decided to create an official association to rank the fighters. The SBF was born and the 100 position ranking was established, yet until the 70’s the ranking was never completely full. The SBF have 5 rules.
· Fight with all your might
· If you defeat an opponent higher ranked that you, you climb one rank and all the ones in-between
· Never surrender, anybody that surrenders or throws a match he will be pushed a rank under
· To enter the 10-1 Ranking you need to complete your Winning Combination
· You can’t use another Boxer Official Winning Combination Technique in your own Winning Combination.
Apart from that five rules, the fights lack any control and a lot of great fighters ended up dying, as a lot of no names that barely started also did when trying to bite more than what they could chew. The Spirit Boxers can be separated into 5 categories:
Strength Boxers, that usually manifest their Spirit as a wind around them and can hit harder than the others
Speed Boxers manifest the Fighting Spirit like Lighting and focus on defensive offensive combat dodging every attack and raining hits against the enemy.
The Durability Boxers show their Spirit as a Thick layer over their bodies and can take more punishment than the most
Technique Boxers demonstrate their Spirit like water flowing around them and place the technical aspects of fighting over anything else, mostly focusing on counters.
Guts Boxers, like Gen, are covered in flames of Fighting Spirit and usually tend to have a balanced out skillset yet they excel with the use of Fighting Spirit.
All of the Spirit Boxers must complete their Winning Combination during their careers, a special Fighting Spirit Technique for every basic Boxing movement. In addition to that all the Boxers possess what is called a Sunday Punch, a signature technique that most of the times tends to be their finishing blow in a fight. Most of the High Ranked Spirit Boxer gained their nicknames from their Sunday Punch, like Quan the Silent, capable of a hyper-fast, invisible straight known as the Silent Fist, that can’t be heard or felt coming by the opponent
