Re: Suckerpunched, ouch

Medically, a broken hand in the last two knuckles is called a bar room fracture. The first two knuckles is called a boxer's fracture. The labeling is due to a glancing blow of the last two fingers in a bar fight since most drunks don't know how to punch. THere is also less support there to absorb the force of the punch. Unless you go with all knuckles you are safer with the index and middle fingers knuckles.
