Date throws a right at a still surprised Ippo, who quickly blocks the shot. However, Ippo realizes too late that the punch is no straight, but a corkscrew instead. The punch goes through the guard and lands straight on his face. Date continues to overwhelm a desperate Ippo, who is wondering if he can not defeat Date due to his powerful champion's fists. Determined to land his heart break shot, Date throws corkscrew after corkscrew in an attempt to hit the heart. Ippo realizes Date's intention, but knows that a wide swing will expose his heart. Confusing Date's pained expression for that of anger, Ippo slowly begins to lose hope until he remember how he told Takamura that in the match, he would give it his best shot. Concluding that he still has more to prove, Ippo re-focuses on the fight and lands a powerful blow on the champion.
