Once outside the hall, they begin talking about how unreal the sensation of winning is. They reflect on how they got there and despite not wanting to admit it, they come to the conclusion that they owe it all to Takamura. Knowing that without meeting him their lives would be worse, they attempt to thank him once they see him but his usual arrogance reminds them how much they dislike him. They promise to get revenge for all he has done to them and, they leave.
Back in the present; Ippo asks the duo how it was when they actually hit Takamura for the first time. Their reactions make it obvious that they have not and Takamura begins teasing them. Aoki and Kimura beat Ippo but are interrupted by Reiko, who was not dead and begins moving again.
