Before the fight starts, Ippo states he plans to do the contrary of what he actually practiced for, by standing still in the six round match, and allowing Saeki, to come after him instead.

The fight begins and Saeki starts doing what is expected of him when he circles his opponent. Ippo on the other hand, is standing still and simply stares at Saeki, who begins to get uncomfortable. Despite knowing what Ippo is doing, Saeki is unable to hold back, and advances. Even though he blocks a punch, he is still sent back against the ropes. Realizing Ippo's strength, Saeki advances and delivers a quick right, which stuns Ippo. Ippo attempts repeatedly to land a clean hit on Saeki, but fails every time. Despite missing all his shots, Ippo successfully corners Saeki. Having the upper hand, Ippo attempts a combination, but Saeki dodges all attacks and escaped the corner, leaving Ippo astonished.
