Suggested by Sonic Knuckle Joe is a pretty powerful boxer who can hold his own in a fight. He may not look terribly formidable, but appearances can be deceiving. If you underestimate this guy then you’re gonna be in a world of hurt. Fortunately Ryu doesn’t underestimate his opponents and does have the expertise needed to stay one step ahead. His power and speed are also above Joe’s skill level which is important. Ryu wins.
