Before making their way to the ring, Miyata and his father have a discussion in where the former say he knows the latter worries more than usual in fear of his son losing on the same stage he did. A confident Miyata however, promises to prove that their style will be successful not only in the orient, but in the entire world.

Both fighters begin their entrances, with Miyata proving to be very popular, and Gregory's appearance surprising many who did not expect someone so strong-looking. Takamura comments on how "sharp" Gregory looks, judging by his entrance, and is able to tell his condition thanks to his shadow boxing.

After receiving instructions from their seconds, both boxers wait for the bell. The first one to attack is the champion, who catches Miyata by surprise and backs him up against the ropes. Gregory keeps hitting the guarded challenger, but the latter finds an opportunity and throws a counter. By the time Gregory realizes what happened, Miyata is standing behind him telling him to calm down.
