*******************  Introduction **********************
 
The point of this guide is mainly to get a handle on the 70 
fighters in the game. While the game has it's share of characters
which not many people will likely ever spend a lot of time 
playing, there are actually many more fighters with unusual sets of 
skills in the game than most people probably realize as well. I've
also written short guides about the game's options as well gameplay
tactics, since no one else has done so yet.

Section 1 discusses some of the finer points of the control scheme.
Section 2 is a short tactics guide. I've divided all of the boxers 
within a given division or divisions into rankings based on skill in 
section 3, then in section 4, copied all the stats (height, reach, 
etc.) for each of the boxers, noted any special moves and included a 
small description of what I think their respective abilities are. I 
tried to go into some detail about each special technique that a 
given fighter has, and if you don't see this under a given fighter, 
you'll find it listed under another fighter who has the same move. 

Hopefully you'll find this guide useful and any feedback, 
corrections, suggestions, etc. that you might have would be 
completely welcomed.




******************** 1.0 Controls **************************

The analog stick can be set to either normal or expert. The normal
setting without a sway or step button assigned is actually more 
difficult to use but gives the game a much more fluid feel and seems
to eleminate the tracking problems (where a character will stay 
facing in the same direction  even as his opponent steps to his side)
that some reviewers of the game complained about. It also adds a sway 
into a step move that which doesn't seem to work under any other 
settings. The expert setting with a sway button assigned makes
footwork, stepping punches and upper body movement easier to 
do.

Normal Setting:

-Pushing the analog stick all the way in one direction causes the 
fighter to take a normal step, pushing twice in the same direction
causes the fighter to make a quick step in that direction. Tapping 
in a given direction will cause the fighter's upper body to sway in 
that direction. Tapping into a sway and then completing the movement
into a normal step gives a sort of sliding sway into a step movememt.

 
Expert (with sway button assigned):

-Pushing the analog stick all the way in one direction causes the 
fighter to take a quick step. Tapping and holding in a given 
direction will cause the fighter to step normally. Pressing the 
sway button deactivates foot movement and the analog stick will 
move only the fighter's upper body for as long as the button is held. 
If you use the expert stick without a sway button, the movement for 
steps is replaced with a swaying movement, and the ability to take 
normal steps is lost, as far as I can tell. 

Angle and Synching options

The following isn't espescially important, and I think that it actually 
works best if the default setting is left alone. I'm just including it 
because I've heard it asked about and for the general sake of 
completeness.


-When the synch mode is turned off, the movement controls are fixed
and pushing up will always move a fighter forward, pushing down will
move him backwards and pushing left or right will always move him left 
or right respectively, regardless of his position in the ring. 
 
-Changing the angle setting will change the orientation of a fixed 
control scheme. The control scheme described in the previous paragraph
is how it would work if the angle was set to 0 degrees. Changing the 
angle to 90 degrees will cause the fighter move forward when the stick
is pushed right,  left or right when it is pushed up or down and 
backward when it's pushed left. Changing it to 270 degrees would give
the exact opposite orientation of the setting in the previous sentence.
The default setting is 9 degrees because the thumb naturally tends to 
angle in a little towards the stick.

-When auto synch is on, the fighter will move relative to the camera and
his position in the ring. If he has his back againt the rope on the left 
side of the ring, pushing right will move him forward. If he's in the 
bottom right of the ring with his back to the corner, pushing diagonally 
up and left will move him forward, diagonally down/right will move him
back, diagonally down/left and up/right will move him left or right.


******************** 2.0 General Tactics *********************

All descriptions below assume that both fighers are in an orthodox,
righ handed stance unless otherwise noted.





Footwork:




-Aside from normal movement, a fighter can also dash or sway into a 
step, as described above in the controls section.

-Under most circumstances, try to circle away from your opponent's 
dominant hand, not into it. ie circle to your fighter's right when 
fighting a right handed fighter.

-When fighting as a boxer, stay in the center of the ring and keep 
circling away from the opponent's dominant hand, while also staying 
outside the shorter range of the left hook. Use the sway and step 
movement, if you're using the normal control scheme, and lots of 
jabs.

-When playing as a puncher, keep moving forward, applying pressure, 
and maneuvering your opponent against the ropes and into the corner. 
Cut him off and keep him away from the center of the ring.
If you don't have a reach advantage, stay as close as possible
to your opponent and attack with hooks and uppercuts.




Punches:



-Stepping left/right straight punches:
They are long range attacks that are more powerful than regular jabs 
and rights, since they will have more of the fighter's body weight 
behind them. An effective way of landing the stepping right punch is 
to flick the jab from just at your fighter's range and then 
move in with a stepping straight right punch. These punches are 
executed by dashing and then pressing the punch button. Stepping hooks 
can also be thrown in the same manner. 
   
-Hooks:
The left hook in this game is thrown fairly open (with the figher's
arm mostly open rather than bent at the elbow), so it has decent 
range. Try catching your opponent with it when he circles to your 
left or as you are stepping to your right for the maximum 
impact -this is espescially effective when used with the sway into a 
step footwork movement. Also, the computer AI will almost always
answer a left hook with a left hook of it's own. The right hook is 
a slow punch that is best when used at close range. 

-Jab:
It's the Fastest punch. Use it to gauge your distance, start your
combinations, work your way inside and interrupt your opponent's 
attack.

-Uppercuts:
They are short range power punches. They are more effective than hooks 
when attacking the body on the inside.

-Straight Rights: 
It's the Medium range power punch. Let if follow the jab or a series 
of them and use it to counter your opponent's jab. Occasionally you'll 
catch an opponent with it as he steps in. I also have had luck using 
it with a leftward sway and stepping movement



Defense: 
 



-Every defensive maneuver should ideally be executed with an offensive 
manuever that is either simultaneous with it or follows immediately
after it. It's bad practice to just stand there slipping, ducking
and blocking punches without punching back.

-Blocking: 
Pressing the R1 button immediately after your opponent's attack will
cause your fighter to block an incoming punch. This method only works
momentarily -your fighter will not keep his guard up and the the button 
has to be pressed once to block every punch your opponent throws. 

Punches can also be blocked by pressing the opposite punch button of
the incoming punch. For example, if your opponent 
throws a right, immediately throwing a jab will cause you to block 
the punch with your left hand, when both fighters are in the orthodox
stance. Vice Versa for the other hand. This can and should be followed 
with an almost simultaneous punch from the other hand. 

-Slipping and Ducking:
Slipping is rolling the shoulders to one side or the other to avoid 
straight punches. A duck is used to avoid hooks. Both have offensive 
components which should be performed simultaneously or follow 
immediately, which are described in the counterpunching section. 
These are the easiest, best maneuvers to defend yourself with in 
this game. 

-The analog stick allows you to control how far sideways your fighter
will go when he slips a punch. The ideal is to go no further than 
absolutely necessary.







Counter Punching:



-A counter punch combines your own punching power with your 
opponent's momentum. It's executed by dodging or blocking his 
punch while simultaneously catching him with your own punch, 
as he's still coming forwards.

-Countering straight punches:

Slip to the left when your opponent throws his jab while
throwing the straight right (which is called the
right cross in this instance) over his punch, to his head.

Counter the straight right by slipping to your right 
while throwing the left hook to the body. A counter
jab to the head (a left cross, I guess) also works fine in this 
game because the punch comes out more like a really loose left 
hook than a straight punch. 

-Countering hooks:
Duck and immediately come back with your own hooks or uppercuts 
to the body or punch on the way back up with uppercuts to the head.

-The counter hooks to the head in this game seem like somewhat 
slow and very awkward punches, and I haven't had a lot of luck 
using them (the exception being when they are used with the sway and
step movement). They do seem to work better than counter straights 
at very close range. When standing toe to toe, you can try using 
counter uppercuts.

-The game also allows you to block while countering with the other
hand as described in the blocking section, which also catches your
opponent's forward movement with your own.

-Practice your countering by using a fighter who has slow battle
as a special move or by dialing down the speed of the opposing 
fighter in exhibition mode.

-To more effectively counter punch, watch your opponent's shoulders
instead of his hands, as they'll move before the hands.





Combinations:



Because your position, punching range and angle, in relation to your
opponent, will be changing throughout the course of the fight, 
there are no recipe list style of combinations that will always work.
Here are some general tips, though:

-To land combos in this game,  all of your punches have to 
make contact with your opponent to keep the combo going, 
even if you just hit his glove or shoulder. If you 
whiff one of your punches entirely (aside from a jab), your fighter 
will be thrown slightly off balance, and any subsequent controller 
input will be ignored for a split second while your fighter regains 
his balance. For this reason, it's better to start your combos
off the jab or several jabs.

-Pay attention to how your opponent reacts after having been hit and
choose your next punch accordingly. Don't just tap out strings of 
punches without regard for timing, range, angle, etc. The best way 
to get the hang of this is to play in slow battle.

-At close range, uppercuts will always at least make contact with
your opponent, even if their blocked, so it's easy to throw 
impressive looking uppercut flurries if you can stay close to your
opponent.

-Faster, lighter punchers are better at landing strings of punches 
than heavy fisted types, who tend to knock their opponents out of 
range after a punch or two.

-Unless an opponent is stunned, you'll rarely land more than a 3 
punch combination before he starts dodging, blocking or moving.

-Combo Examples:

jab 2x

jab -> right

jab -> L.hook

jab -> right -> L.hook

bodyL.hook -> L.hook

jab -> bodyLstraight -> bodyRight ->bodyLstraight -> bodyRight

bodyL.uppercut -> bodyR.uppercut -> L.uppercut

jab -> bodyL.hook -> L.hook

jab -> bodyL.hook -> L.hook -> right

My favorite Ippo combo:

jab or or duck inside -> bodyUppercut ->L.hook / right 
depending on position

If your opponent's in the center of the ring when you 
start the above combo, Ippo's body uppercut will knock the 
opponent backward and you'll have to throw a stepping punch 
to hit him with the left hook or right.





Special Moves:




I'm covering the 2 most prevalent special moves and 1 that
is theoretically possible for every fighter to do here. 
All other special moves are covered in the comments sections 
under a given figher.

-Slow Battle 

Causes the fight to move in slow motion for
as long as a given fighter can maintain it.

-Momentary Battle 

MB allows to you to pinpoint exactly where
you want a punch to land. Activate it immediately
after throwing a punch (this is much easier to do if 
slow battle is already running.) If you see a red flash,
it means you were too slow. When you've successfully entered
momentary battle, the game's action will freeze and you'll be
able to place your punch with the crosshairs controlled by 
the left analog stick and rotate the camera with the right 
analog stick.

-Heartbreak Punch 

If you land a punch directly on your 
opponent's heart he will be completely stunned and unable to 
react for a few seconds. This has happened to me a few times
by luck, but I've never really tried to master the move. It 
seems like your punch placement has to be just perfect for it
to work. A good postion to land right on the heart from would be to 
throw a right to the body with momentary battle while standing 
slightly to your opponent's right side, immediatlely after
your opponent has thrown a left hook or jab to the head.

**************** 4.0 Fighter Stats and Profiles **************

-All stats and comments are based on the final version of a 
given fighter at the end of the story mode, unless otherwise
noted. All comments assume that both fighters are in the 
orthodox stance.





4.1 Bantamweight Fighters (3 unique fighters)

The three bantamweights are played during the historical
interlude in the story mode. They are pound for pound 
as good or better than the first tier of fighters 
in the featherweight division, and only at a size and slight 
power/chin disadvantage in actual matches with them. The 3 
characters also have selectable old men versions of 
themselves who fight in the same style as their younger 
selves except with much faded abilities.




* Genji Kamogawa *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Fighter
Weight:---Bantamweight
Age:------28
Height:---161.0 -5'3"
Reach:----157.4 -61"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
Iron Fist 

Comments:
Kamogawa has heavy hands and good hand speed but plodding 
footwork. His chin is decent and he has excellent heart.
His footwork makes him a limited, foward moving brawler type
fighter. The iron fist is a sweeping left hook to the body
that is best thrown at medium close range while slightly 
to your opponent's left side.

* Ginpachi Nekota *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Open
Weight:---Bantamweight
Age:------28
Height:---160.5 -5'3"
Reach:----159.6 -62"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:	
Slow Battle
Momentary Battle

Comments:
Probably the fastest feet in the game. His normal footwork is
faster than most of the other fighter's dashes. Nekota also 
has very quick hands, decent power and very good heart 
but a somewhat mediocre chin. 



* Dankichi Hama *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Fighter
Weight:---Bantamweight
Age:------28
Height:---160.1 -5'3"
Reach:----156.9 -61"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
Flying Swallow
Slow Battle
Momentary Battle

Comments:
Hama has lightning quick hand speed and a great left jab.
His punch and chin are both good but his footwork is somewhat
slow and his heart is mediocre. The flying swallow is a fast
string of left handed punches. Try to throw it when the opponent 
is staggered or stuck in the corner, and when Hama is somewhat
to his opponent's left side.





4.2 Featherweight Fighters (38 unique fighters)
---------------------------------------------------

The featherweight has almost 4 times as many fighters and much
greater depth in terms of talent and styles than any other division.





* Ippo Makunouchi *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Peek A Boo
Weight:---Feather
Age:------21
Height:---164-5'4"
Reach:----165-64"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
Joffre Uppercut, Dempsey Roll, Deadly Smash, Gazelle Punch

Comments:
Ippo finishes the game as a well rounded fighter who is very 
good at everything without being especially great at
anything, except maybe upper body movement. Slipping a
punch and stepping to the right will put you in a good position
to throw the gazelle punch and vice-versa for the deadly smash.
The joffre uppercut is a right handed uppercut that hits the 
body on the inside and the chin at medium range. The Dempsey 
roll uses a lot of stamina and is best saved as a finisher, end 
of the round closing flurry, or desperation move.

* Naoya Ogawa *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter	
Weight:---Feather
Age:------19
Height:---169   -5'6
Reach:----169.8 -66"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:
none

Comments: 
Awful all around. Easily the worst fighter in the game.

* Yusuke Oda *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------21
Height:---168   -5'6"
Reach:----168.8 -66"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
none

Comments: Decent power, okay heart, bad chin. Has poor 
stamina and gasses very quickly.

* Yoshio Fujiwara *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------19		 
Height:---167   -5'5"
Reach:----167.8 -66"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:
Head butt

Comments:
Decent heart but otherwise average or worse. Has a special head 
butt move which stuns the opponent but is hard to pull off. 

* Jason Osuma *

Country:--United States
Style:----Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------19
Height:---171   -5'7"
Reach:----171.8 -67"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
None

Comments: 
Good power, good heart, but has somewhat slow hands 
and a below average chin.

* Kenta Kobashi *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Up Style
Weight:---Feather
Age:------18
Height:---167.5 -5'5"
Reach:----166.5 -65"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
Cross Armed Block

Comments:
Excellent heart but mediocre to bad in every other respect. 
Slow, has an awful chin and no apparent power. Kenta Kobashi
gets no respect but his upright fighting style is fun to 
play. Set him to strong and crank his speed all the way up to 
see what the "up style" can really do.

* Ryuichi Hayami *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Open
Weight:---Feather
Age:------20
Height:---172   -5'7"
Reach:----175.4 -70"
Hand: ----Right

Special Moves:		
Shotgun Punch

Comments: 
Great speed and the 2nd longest reach in the featherweight division
make him a tough fighter, even besides the fact that he also has a 
very effective, very cheap special move. Otherwise, has mediocre 
heart, very light punches and a bad chin. 

* Ryo Mashiba *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Hitman
Weight:---Feather
Age:------20
Height:---177 -5'9"
Reach:----187 -73"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
Flicker Jab, Chopping Right

Comments: 
Largest featherweight and longest reach. Very good speed, 
great power and heart but a lousy chin. Since Ryo is easily 
hurt, his reach will become a liability if he takes a few 
good shots to the body and can no longer keep proper distance 
with his footwork.

* Takeshi Sendo *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------21
Height:---167.5 -5'5"
Reach:----168   -66"	
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
Smash, Slow Battle, Ultra Low Smash, Deadly Smash

Comments:
Brawling fighter with great power, good or very good speed, chin 
and heart. The final version of Sendo is an entirely better fighter 
than the one you play as. The smash and ultra low smash are left 
hand punches that should be thrown when Sendo is to the right
of the opponent's center and from at the edge of medium range. 
The deadly smash is a right that should be thrown when standing
right in front of or to the opponent's right side. It's range is 
also from medium range. The range is the most important thing
in landing Sendo's smashes. The ultra low smash seems to be 
specifically for catching Ippo and is effective against opponent's
who like to go to the body.

* Keigo Okita *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age: -----18	
Height:---167   -5'5"
Reach:----167.5 -65" 
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
Corkscrew Punch

Comments: 
Decent power but somewhat slow. Has a mediocre chin but pretty 
good heart.

* Takuma Saeki *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Open
Weight:---Feather
Age:------20
Height:---170 -5'6"
Reach:----170 -66"
Hand: ----Right

Special Moves:
Momentary Battle, Slow Battle, Cross Armed Block

Comments:
All around fastest in the division and maybe the game, okay power,
somewhat below average chin and heart. Fun to play.


* Alexander Volg Zangiev *

Country:--Russia
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------20	
Height:---168.1  -5'6"
Reach:----169.5  -66"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:
White Fang

Comments:
Volg is a fighter from the land where all that one hears at night
are "the wolves and the howling of the wind," and his "wolven" fighting 
style" makes him one of the best in the game. He has a fast, strong jab
that lets him fight effectively as a boxer, very good power, excellent 
speed, a decent chin and great heart. Good at comebacks in a fight 
and has punching power that keeps the opponent down. His special move
is a two punch combination of a right uppercut to the chin and a left
hook to the top of the head. It's best thrown when  Vorg is positioned 
to his oppenent's right side and from medium-close range.

* Eiji Date *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------29
Height:---168.5  -5'6"
Reach:----170.2  -67"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:
corkscrew punch, momentary battle, slow battle

Comments:
Great all around fighter. The corkscrew punch can be substitued
for regular straight rights. The version of Date with the white 
trunks is a better fighter than the earlier one with 
the blue trunks.

* Ponchai Chuwatana *

Country:--Thailand
Style:----Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------18
Height:---167   -5'5"
Reach:----167.5 -65"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
none

Comments:		
Slow with good power and an okay chin. Not a lot of heart.


* Kazuki Sanada *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------20
Height:---167   -5'5"
Reach:----168.4 -66"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:
Flying swallow, Swallow Counter

Comments:		
Good all around fighter with no glaring strengths or 
weaknesses. Strong chin and speed, respectable power but not a 
massive puncher. Red hair and green trunks makes up to some 
degree for the glaring lack of Irish fighters in this game.
The flying swallow is a series of left hand punchs. The most
effective place to use it is from medium range with the opponent
in the corner and Sanada somewhat to his left. The Swallow 
counter is a kind of uppercut punch that seems similar to 
the Joffre uppercut.


* Hammer Nao *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------19
Height:---173.5  -5'8"
Reach:----173.5  -68"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:	
Rough Fight Arm

Comments:
Very tough fighter with excellent heart and a good chin. 
His power is decent and his speed is also pretty good.
The rought fight arm move knocks the opponets arms away and
then throws a left hook to the body.

* Yi Yonsu *

Country:--South Korea
Style:----Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------20
Height:---166.5  -5'6"
Reach:----166.5  -66"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
none

Comments:		
Good power and heart, excellent upper body movement, poor 
chin. Nerdy looks. He's definitely a notch above Lee Chonpil,
anyway.

* Iwao Shimabukuro *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Peel A Boo
Weight:---Feather
Age:------20
Height:---159   -5'2"
Reach:----155.4 -61"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:
gazelle punch

Comments:
Great power, excellent chin, average or maybe slightly 
less heart. Smallest fighter in the game with a reach 
more than 1 foot shorter than Ryo Mashiba.

* Ryuhei Sawamura *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------21
Height:---170  -5'6"
Reach:----170  -66"	
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
bullet, head jerk, slow battle, momentary battle

Comments:
Slick boxer who's very good all around except for his 
only decent power. The bullet punch is a rapid fire 
jab and the head jerk is a taunt.

* Takuzo Karasawa *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------20		
Height:---169.3  -5'6"
Reach:----172.1  -67"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
none

Comments:
Very good speed and chin, good power, poor heart.

* Keichi Take *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------31
Height:---167.3  -5'5"
Reach:----167.3  -65"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:		
switch

Comments:
Good chin, defense, hand speed and decent heart and 
power. Has lousy footwork. Take has a unique special
move that lets him switch to a southpaw stance. Oldest 
featherweight.

* Ricardo Martinez *

Country:--Mexico
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Feather
Age:------29
Height:---168.3 -5'6"
Reach:----171.1 -67"

An all around excellent fighter with the power of a 
middleweight. His only weakness is a mediocre heart, not
that it matters. The computer AI for Martinez counterpunches 
with impossible accuracy. Completely outclasses all the 
other fighters at featherweight which makes playing as him 
somewhat boring and pointless.

Comments:
Fast, long reach, good heart and chin, okay power. Speed and reach 
make him a natural counterpuncher. He has a hard time putting other
fighters away. The jolt is basically a more refined version of the
game's stepping right straight punch. It works best when Miyata
leans backs from punches from a somewhat long/mid range and throws 
it as his opponent is recovering.

Slick boxer with a great jab who can also brawl.Excellent
power, very good speed and heart but a mediocre chin. 
Has the kind of punch that puts opponents away instead 
of just down. Steamrolls the vast majority of the 
featherweight ranks just by being too big, too strong and
too fast Has loads of mulletheaded 1980's, Aussie style.

4.3 Jr. Lightweight Fighters (10 unique fighters)
--------------------------------------------------

Tatsuya isn't quite as good a fighter as the ones the player
uses in featherweight division, so most of his opponents in
the jr. lightweight division are of a lower caliber as 
well. This division is comprised mostly of smooth boxer
type fighters, most of whom would fall towards the bottom
of the second tier of the featherweight division fighters.  




* Tatsuya Kimura *

Height:---171
Reach:----171
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:

Comments:
Tatsuya is a boxer with good power and speed but is very 
fragile due to his mediocre chin and a glaring deficit in 
heart. Has a very short slow battle as his special move.

* Tatsuya *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Jr. Lightweight
Age:------23
Height:---171 -5'7"
Reach:----171 -67"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:	
slow battle 
dragon fish blow
	
Comments:
The end game version of Kimura. Slightly better than above 
except with vastly improved heart and a powerfull finishing
move. He can brawl now, though it's not recommended.
The dragon fish blow is a two punch move that starts with a 
left hook to the body and then a looping right from above
follows immediately after. The best place to throw it from
is a bit to the opponent's left and from medium range. To 
get both shots in, the opponent will probably have to be 
against the ropes.

Wears garish neon trunks that look like they came straight out 
of 1992 and has an ugly bowel haircut. Aside from that, he's 
basically another variation on Kimura. Good footwork and 
handspeed that is a notch above average. A little lacking in 
power but has decent heart.

All around good fighter with very good speed. He's about as 
good as the midling featherweight fighters in this game, but 
that's good enough to make him the second or third best fighter 
in this division. His afro undeniably stands out.

Eleki is one of the more interesting fighters in the game. 
He has decent power, excellent speed and great heart

taken to its limit.

beats any other fighter in this division easily. 







4.4 Lightweight Fighters (10 unique fighters)
-----------------------------------------------

The lightweight division is similar to the Jr. Lightweight
division in the quality of it's fighters, but does have a little
more diversity in terms of their fighting styles.




* Masaru Aoki *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Lightweight
Age:------23
Height:---171 -5'7"
Reach:----171 -67"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:	
double punch
corkscrew
look away
frog punch
	
Comments:
Aoki is a brawling type fighter with a good chin, good power,
above average speed and decent heart. He has more unique, 
unorthodox special moves than any other fighter. The frog punch
is a jumping right uppercut to the head. The best place
to throw it from is a bit to your opponent's right and 
from medium range. It has a duck and slight forward step built 
in so just throw it when you'd normally duck. The double is a
telegraphed punch that sends both arms straight out. It's best
thrown from straight ahead and medium range. The most effective
way I've found to use it is to lean back from an opponent's 
attack then throw it as he' recovering. The lookaway is maybe
the cheapest move in the game. The corkscrew is a more powerful
right straight which can more or less substituted for the regular 
straight right.

* Hiroshi Yamanaka *

Country:--Indonesia
Style:----Fighter

Height:---168.5 -5'6"
Reach:----158.2 -62"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:	
Play Dead
Look Away
Cocunut Punch
	
Comments:
Short arms and lightning quick upper body movement make Papaya one of 
the best infighters in the game. He's sort of the inverse opposite
of Ryo Mashiba in dimensions and fighting style. His power, chin, heart
and speed are all very good to excellent. His punches are the type that 
knock opponents out instead of just down. The cocunut punch is a very 
powerfull stepping right straight punch. The look away move is the same
as Aoki's, and the Play Dead move will cause Papaya to do a staggering
motion as though he had been hurt.

* Broccoman  *

Country:--Japan
Style:----Boxer Fighter
Weight:---Lightweight
Age:------24
Height:---171 -5'7"
Reach:----171 -67"

Special Moves:

Comments:
Broccoman is the supercharged version of Aoki. My impression is that he 
has about the same heart and chin as regular Aoki but with much improved
speed and power.




4.5 Welterweight Fighters (1 unique fighter)

Age:------26
Height:---178.5 -5'10"
Reach:----180.2 -70"
Hand:-----Right

Special Moves:	
Cross Arm Block
	
Comments: 
Ralph is the antagonist in the somewhat jingoistic 4th act. He's a 
good boxer type fighter in most respects but with only slightly 
better than average heart. If there 100 welterweights in this game, 
Ralph would probably fall in somewhere between the top 70 and 80 
fighters.



4.6 Jr. Middleweight Fighters (4 unique fighters)
---------------------------------------------------

The Jr. Middleweight and Middleweight division revolve around Takamura, 
who starts the game at a high ranking, so most of his opponent's are 
either champions or highly ranked contenders. Because of this high
level of competition, alomost anyone(or at least the top 5 or 6 
fighters) in these divisions can beat anyone else.

******************* 5.0 Ranking Methodology ***************** 

Basically, I started by taking a solid, middle tier fighter, 
Sanada for the featherweights, as a measuring standard to gauge
the other fighter's skills. I fought against him with every 
other fighter in the division and wrote my opinions on the 
given boxer that I'd used in the comments section after the 
fight. Power and speed are pretty easy to gauge. However, 
chin, heart and stamina seem to be interrelated to a large 
degree, so it'd be better to take my comments on these with 
a grain of salt. After that, I then ran a division wide computer
tournament and used it, along with my fighter notes and some 
computer exhibition matches, to place the fighters into skill 
brackets. The computer AI works better with some fighting styles
than other, so I had to factor that in, also.




******* 6.0 Computer AI and Tournaments **********

-The computer AI is excellent. It's what makes the VB series so
great. It does have its quirks and flaws, though. It is improabably 
efficient at countering and not as good at using footwork. This is 
why Martinez is so difficult to beat, whereas the computer controlled
Ryo isn't nearly as tough as he could be. I also think that the AI 
doesn't jab nearly enough, particularly when controlling 
boxer type fighters or go to the body enough when controlling fighters.
In computer controlled matches, this will put some fighters at a real
disadvantage. 

-Fighters from lower weight classes are at a big disadvantage when 
fighting the higher weight classes.  Jr. lightweight Ryo will almost
always cream featherweight Ryo, in usually in less than 1 round, for 
example. Because of the talent in the bantamweight division and the 
relative lack of it in the light/jr.lightweight divisions, it's 
usually not much of a problem for the bantamweight through the 
lightweight classes, but only the better fighters in these divisions
will do well against the lower ranked fighters in the divisions above 
lightweight. 

-Use a seeding system that accounts for skill when placing your 
boxers in tournaments, otherwise the best fighters can end up knocking 
each other out of contention in the early rounds. I've been using ALJ 
Tournament Maker program while writing this guide, which is a free
download.

-Putting Martinez or Hayami into a featherweight tournament will 
spoil the results.



******** 7.0 Credits *****************

The section on blocking is taken from posts on the gamefaqs board 
by mpw1234 and Mr. Bo Jangles.

Mr. Bo Jangles explained how to block punches with the punch 
buttons. Until I read that post, I'd been confused as to why my 
fighter would seemingly randomly block and parry punches.

mpw1234 explained the exact way that the block button was used.







******** 8.0 Random Facts **********


-If Nekota fought Anderson in 1947, the story mode would end 
around 1995 (based on the difference in age between young and 
old Nekota.)

-Sometimes an opponent will stick his fist out as he's going
down. If this connects, it counts as a punch and can knock
a fighter down.








********* 9.0 Stuff To Do ************

-Charts for the fighters stats and special moves.

-Expanded combo section. (I'd espescially appreciate any
suggestions or possible improvements on this section.)

-Find out what Imae's "about face" move does.

-More information on the "heartbreak punch."
