I got hit with a clean left hook to the liver sparring once. I didn't go down but I needed to take a break for like a minute or so. It's a horrible feeling, and if a guy has real power it's devastating.
Agree. Body shots, especially to the liver can be horrible.
having more stronger and bigger abdominal muscles can only help lessen the blow, but a good shot will always hurt... but you got to condition yourself for them.
