Used by Donald Rykard, Created by Omnitox.

Donald's furious fighting style is a combination of boxing and wrestling, though in practice it looks more like a drunken animal fighting, sloppy, yet powerful.

Donald learned the importance of facing your problems head on, or more like fist on, sometimes even foot on.
