    1. Prologue-
    
    I decided to put together a FAQ for the Character’s of Victorious Boxers for
    two reasons. The first reason being the game has so many different fighter’s
    and each of the fighters have varying strengths and weaknesses. The game itself
    is the closest interpretation of a boxing simulation that I have ever seen.
    Although the game itself lacks in a couple of areas, you will be hard pressed
    to find anything that comes even remotely close to the aspects of real boxing.
    Such as angle of punches, stamina usage, ring generalship, and the countering
    system is top notch. There is also no clinching system involved in the game
    which you actually start not to miss all that much after playing the game. The
    control system is hard to master at first, but once you get the hang of it you
    will appreciate the how simple and easy the control scheme is.
    
    The second reason I put together a FAQ for Victorious Boxers is because no one
    else has, and also because I can. So let's quit with the talking and get onto
    the info portion of the page because I am pretty sure eveyone skips the
    beginning of a FAQ anyways. I am even surprised if you took the time to read
    down this far into the Prologue.
    
    -------------------------------
    
    2. Rating System Explanation.
    
    Just to let eveyone know how I came up with the rating system for which you are
    about to read, I just want to first let everyone who reads this FAQ to know
    that I did NOT use a control scheme that had movement set for EXPERT and SWAY
    assigned to L1 or any other button. In my own personal opinion that setup sucks
    and it kills your stamina when your fighter dashes everywhere he moves. But
    also for the fact that most people who get the game or are currently playing
    the game will use the default setup. However I also understand that there are
    people who play the game using the above mentioned setup. Nothing personal
    against any of you and my comments are not an attack on your person, I just
    think that control scheme is a waste of time and really hampers your fighters
    abilities when you use that scheme. But if you use the scheme just take away
    from the stamina rankings I put up by 1.5. I used the control scheme for all
    the fighters to make this FAQ as well informed as I could, and found that all
    of the fighters would tire by that margin. Now for an explanation of the area's
    I am rating as well as the fighter used to rate them all.
    
    The fighter being used to rate everyone is one from each category. For the
    Featherweight division, I have chosen Ponchai Chuwatana. He is basically the
    most well rounded fighter in that division. For the Lightweight division, I
    have chosen Snake Thomas. Again he is the most well rounded fighter in that
    division. For the Jr. Lightweights, I have chosen Porn Morocotte for the same
    reason I chose eveyone else. For the middleweights, I have chosen Morris West.
    
    For the ratings I have used a 12 round fight, no 3 knockdown rule in effect and
    the fights took place in VS mode. Two fights were done per person, per
    division. However the only fighter I was hesitant about was Bear. He is the
    absolute most arcade like thing in this game, but some people I know actually
    enjoy using him so I decided to include him in the rating system. Also I have
    not scored the two versions of Ippo and Takamura those being first fight Ippo
    or sparring Ippo as well as overtrained or Red Takamura. I have also decided to
    not include special punch ratings in this because not all fighters have a
    special punch. Below is an explanation of the area's being scored and how the
    ratings will be achieved. All ratings use a 10 point system with 10 being the
    highest and 1 being the lowest.
    
    -- Power- Power is being judged by how quickly a fighter can KO his opponent
    and the overall damage done punch by punch.
    
    -- Chin- Chin is being judged by how well a fighter can recieve a punch as well
    as how quickly they can be knocked down and knocked out.
    
    --Heart- Heart is being judged by how likely a fighter is going to get up from
    a knockdown.
    
    -- Stamina- Stamina is being judged by how quickly a fighter tires and slows
    down, with each fighter throwing a minimum of 75 punches per round.
    
    -- Speed- Speed is being judged by how quickly a fighter moves on his feet.
    
    -- Hand Speed- Hand Speed is being judged by how quickly a fighter throws any
    punch.
    
    -- Overall Score- Is a total combination of all the ratings for that particular
    fighter.

    4. Conclusion and Contact Info
    
    
    Not everyone is gonna agree with the rating system I have just put up. Everyone
    will have a bias towards their favorite fighter. But look at it this way, if
    you are comfortable with a particular fighter and you have mastered what they
    can do in the ring, then congratulations to you. I have a bias towards Takuma
    Saeki. I would have given him all 10's if could have. But that is not gonna
    happen because I realize not eveyone is gonna be able to use him like I do in
    the ring. These ratings are nothing more than personal opinions based on hours
    and hours of fighting and match making. If you don't like it, then to bad. Make
    your own FAQ or don't bother reading this one.
    
    If you have any questions comments or such, disagree with my ratings of the
    characters, or just want to harass me....hahaha...you can email me at
    digital.enigma@excite.com or you can find me on ICQ at 82694734 if you want.

    5. Legal Stuff
    
    I am not a lawyer, however time and effort went into making this FAQ so if you
    want to use it,
    or post it on a site, use common sense and email me before doing so.It takes a
    whole whopping one minute to do that ( depending on the speed of
    your isp and or computer system ) and it would be apprecitated if you did.
    Other than that, this is FAQ is only gonna be up on Gamefaqs.com.
