Ippo runs into Umezawa and his gang after school. They know he's been going to a boxing gym and thinking his doing it for revenge, they tease him by taking his C Rank License. They rush at him but Ippo easily dodges them and snatches his license back from Umezawa. Ippo tells the his reason for boxing is because he likes it, not for revenge, and runs off. While Takemura and Matsuda wonder if this a dream, Umezawa is too amazed to speak.

Ippo arrives at the gym where Takamura asks to come visit his apartment later so he can show him a video. The video ends up being of Mashiba Ryou easily defeating his opponent and Takamura explains the flicker jab and asks Ippo if he wants to change his mind about his weight class he also says people as skilled are everywhere in the Pro World. Ippo leaves depressed, and Takamura notes the former hasn't realized his own power.

The next day at the gym, the coach and Yagi prepare to tell Ippo the name of his first pro opponent.
