Hello!

I'm looking for (martial arts) mangas that have instances where a boxer and a martial artist/kicker (karate, taekwondo, kickboxing..) spar or fight. The kind of mangas I'm interested in are the ones with "realistic" drawing - such as Garouden, Shamo or even Baki. I've seen such fights in the aforementioned mangas and in Karate Minoru for example. Is there anything else?

Please, point me to a specific manga if you're sure there's this kind of action in it. I'd appreciate to know the specific chapter or volume. Doesn't matter if it's RAW or not.

Some mangas that I believe could have such scenes, but are sadly without many scans available are the following ones:

http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=42203
http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=42204
http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=17676
http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=28804

Anything like that in those?

Also, there's a manga called "Jungle Square" ( http://blog-imgs-27.fc2.com/m/a/n/mangabruce/KAJIWARA-NA KAJO-shikakui-jungle1-2.jpg ) or something; an old martial arts/kickboxing manga as well.
Why aren't these older martial arts mangas scanned? sad The drawing seems so beautiful.

I'd be very grateful if anyone could help.

Holyland fits perfectly into what you are looking for.

Thanks for your suggestion, oyzar.

I have checked it out. While it's interesting, I was looking for something a bit different. More something in the line of sparring/fighting within a dojo/gym or in a tournament, with participants wearing their combat outfits (karateka in a kimono, boxer in boxing shorts/shoes etc).
This is more like street fighting, right? The style of the drawing is a bit off-putting I have to admit, the main character especially, who looks anorexic. Some more muscles wouldn't hurt. biggrin

Anything else I should check out?

No.
I'm interested in male vs male fights.

PS. Please, if you know the volumes, point them out.

I strongly second Holyland though it seems you dont look for something so "street-like". *darn i didnt see the previous post and could only add this line, you have to pardon me U.U*

try kenji theres a segment in the story when he goes to high school i think. kung fu vs sumo/boxing

i read the following titles so long ago that i cant remember if a boxer is present:
change guy cant remember if there was a boxer in there.
k.o. sen. cant remember if he fought a boxer (dude was training kickboxing)
Shura no Mon (there may be a boxer there, it is a tournament i have a faint recollection that there is one)
ultra red again its a tournament/school life so there may be a boxer there)

for shit and giggles try noritaka
