Having suffered ruthless bullying for the better part of his life, 17-year-old Yu has become emotionally numb and dissociated from reality, no longer able to act like a normal human being. Although he possesses the exceptional talent to dodge punches, Yu prefers to let his perpetrators beat him down as he finds no meaning in his survival.

Things begin to look up when Yu meets an old boxing trainer nicknamed "K." Having raised five champions, K's years of experience and an impressive gut feeling allow him to recognize Yu's near-superhuman fighting charisma immediately. K rushes to take Yu under his wing, despite the latter's apparent lack of interest.

However, after being reminded of a bright memory from the past, Yu has a change of heart and accepts K's offer, hoping to experience the same light once again. Thus, Yu enters a world full of formidable adversaries—righteous and monstrous alike—and for the first time ever, he has no choice but to fight back.

It feels almost cozy in comparison but aims for the same heights when it comes to writing quality.

The Boxer tells the story of Yu, a silent, emotionless boxer whose intense mental trauma coming from a childhood of abuse has given him a savant-like ability to perceive time as if in a slow motion. Yu ...

There is something about The Boxer that makes it truly fascinating. "But what?" I sometimes ask myself. "What makes it so fascinating?" The truth is, I'm not too sure myself. It's hard to describe. I could write about the story or the characters or the fights, but they are only a fraction of what makes The Boxer so great. There are so many things I love about The Boxer. I love how the author gives the side characters so much depth. I love how the story is predictable yet exciting. I love how each fight tells a story. A story about hatred, a story about ...

(Spoiler-free review)

Verdict - The Boxer is a 10/10 Masterpiece.

The Boxer is a magnificent depiction of not just the art of boxing, but the human struggle. After reading his other masterpiece, The Horizon, I was heavily interested in how one would translate from a apocalyptic dystopian survival horror to a sports webtoon about boxing. Needless to say I was not disappointed.

The titular Yu is akin to One Punch Man's Saitama - extraordinarily overpowered. Many dream to be in his position, having the power to achieve greatness at the pinnacle of their craft. However, author Ji-Hoon delves deep into the human psyche, and shows the reader that ...
