"LOL! I'm having a lot of fun at the expense of all the Oscar jockriders acting personally insulted. "
Wrong. I am a Hopkins jockrider and call bullshit when I see it. I won $420.00 by BETTING on Hopkins to KO Oscar...not win...to KO.
"You are correct about the liver contour but it is protected on the side by the ribs,which is where Hopkins punched Oscar."
Yes, but the ribs to protect THEMSELVES from breaking, flex on impact. Being rigid, they would break on impact, by flexing they can take a greater impact w/o breaking (up to a point). That flexibility allows a penetration of "energy" ino the organs...the lungs, liver, etc.
"My point is in order to attack the liver most effectively you punch it in front of the body were it is protected only by the abdominals not bone. "
You may be right about most effectively, but if "less" effective gets the KO (as BH did) then it's obviously not that less effective. Less or most effective is a mot issue, effective PERIOD what's important.
"Nard hit Oscar in the floating ribs."
Hitting bone, if they don't break wouldn't drop a man. It's the trauma to the organs that does it. There is viscera behind those ribs.
