    No, it means to endure. It's a slangish saying.
    Если ты "не держишь удар", this means that you get offended too easily, cant withstand an insult, too thinskinned etc.

    I think in boxing it literally means to withstand a punch or something
    I've got a TV, and I'm not afraid to use it

    It also means you don't give up easily and keep fighting when life challenges you.

    This also can be a fighting term (FAI in boxing) and means not to allow your opponent to kick you with his fist

    I suppose that if you had ever met the guy you wouldn't be able to post here at the moment.

    Speaking of slapping and such, isn't there a verb which means literally "To smack somebody in the face"? I vaguely remember translating a word like this in I think "Выстрел", but I can't be for sure. Thanks,

    How about the Russian equivalent of the English verb 'to punch'? ударить кого-нибудь в лицо/по лицу.
    For example,
    -Чак Норисс ударил меня в лицо, я упал и больше уже никогда не мог подняться.

    I've just come up with another verb meaning 'smack sb in the face'. It's a slang one.
    заехать кому-нибудь куда-нибудь
    -Ты прикинь, он мне по роже заехал!
    But this sentence is rather rude while the word заехать isn't rude at all. It's just very informal.

    Here is my guess
    to punch = to hit with a closed fist = ударить кулаком
    to slap = to hit with an open hand = ударить рукой
    to kick = to hit with a foot = ударить ногой
    to hit = ударить
    Какая разница, умереть богатым или бедным?
