Mashiba's illegal move, gives him the upper hand, as Miyata despite getting up, is unable to move. Mashiba takes the opportunity and attacks Miyata who despite his condition, dodges all the hits with only his upper body. Mashiba attacks ready to finish it, but Miyata receives him with a counter. When Mashiba psychs himself up and goes for the attack again, the referee stops him and ends the round.

Miyata's father, noticing that his son has a serious injury, advises him to forfeit the match, and gets up to let the referee know. Miyata, motivated by the thought of Ippo waiting for him, refuses and chooses to fight.

As the third round begins, Miyata once again uses nothing but his upper body to dodge, but when he attempts to back away from Mashiba, he lets out an expression of pain, letting his opponent know about his injury.
