I mean, yes, that is how Shounen manga goes, but this one felt different because it took 20 chapters and Oda kept showing the clock, showing the fight going on for literal hours. And for the most part, it was just "Katakuri hurts Luffy bad, waits for Luffy to stand, than does it again". This isn't Crocodile mocking luffy for a few seconds before attacking again. So it did feel different.Talking about Flambe situation, not the whole fight. While Katakuri was dominant, he still wasn't able to knockout Luffy or take him down completely as Luffy keep getting back up similar to Lucci vs Luffy fight, but more tougher. As for the other stuff, isn't that every Shounen bad guy as they always call for the protagonist to give up and don't go on the attack even when they think they finish them as they don't really go forward completely each time to completely wipe them out. Pretty sure that rules for majority if not all Shounen fights each time.
