Description
Makunochi Ippo is an ordinary high school student in Japan. Since he spends most of his time away from school helping his mother run the family business, he doesn't get to enjoy his younger years like most teenagers. Always a target for bullying at school, Ippo's life is one of hardship. One of these after-school bullying sessions turns Ippo's life around for the better, as he is saved by a boxer named Takamura. He decides to follow in Takamura's footsteps and train to become a boxer, giving his life direction and purpose. Ippo's path to perfecting his pugilistic prowess is just beginning.

Note: Won the 15th Kodansha Manga Award for Best Shounen Manga in 1991.

An excellent manga about boxing. A bit of drama, lots of comedy and action. Once you start reading it, you'll get addicted. This is by far yhe best sportts manga ever made. It is a very long manga but the story keeps getting better. The second half of the series is better than the first.
PS. TAKAMURA IS THE LORD OF PERVERTS

Seriously, this is seriously the best manga ever made in the world. IF YOU HAVEN'T READ IT YOU'RE SERIOUSLY DEPRIVED! However, I completly agree that it is really long, 74+ Volumes, and if it wasn't for the FABULOUS plot, GREAT CHARACTERS AND CHARACTER BUILDING, and of course, SOME OF THE BEST ACTION EVER, i might have possibly gotten bored.
On a side note: I read about 50+ Volumes in about a week. This seriously gets addicting....

One of the very best manga that I have ever read. Nothing can come close to this series in sheer intensity with a good mix of humour in it. Even at 70+ volumes, the characters remains interesting and everyone is a star in their own fight. Agree with the rest of the board, Takamura is the king of perverts!

Damn, After seventy volumes, it's starting to get just a tad repetitive. But it's still good
