Takamura and Keith are staring each other during the face off, while Antonio approaches Ippo to offer a handshake. Ippo accepts his offer and wishes to have a good match.

After the face off, Kamogawa demands Takamura to stop drinking so much water, since he drank his third litter already. Takamura then says he should be worried about letting his guard down because of Keith's puny look which almost cracked Takamura up.

Kamogawa then asks Ippo what he experienced when he met Antonio. Ippo knew he was a southpaw because of his instinct to offer his hand and he saw the heavy burden Antonio carries from the look on his face.

Meanwhile, Mashiba Ryou and Kumi are discussing about Ippo's return match while eating. Ryou, as always, will go to watch his match and hopes Ippo will lose. Kumi doesn't want Ryou to hope such things, but at the same time she struggles her thoughts if she wants Ippo to win or to lose. Anyhow, Ryou will inform her if he wins his return match.
