True... But you can say the same for a solidly placed punch to the base of the jaw also. Statistically speaking, punches are acredited for more KOs than any other strike. As it is, I don't think you're going to see any recorded finishes to fights from an elbow to the body. However, punches to the body have produced many KOs (some of which are the most painful that I've ever seen).

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.
