- Title Page Character(s): Makunouchi Ippo, Antonio Guevarra, Sendou Takeshi
Antonio is down, Mashiba, Fujii, Miyata, and Sendou note how quick and flashy Ippo was the moment he stepped in Antonio's range. As the count goes on, Kamogawa realizes that Antonio swayed backwards when Ippo punched him, therefore, the reason he fell the way he did was because he leaned back too much. Antonio stands and the match continues. Ippo bursts out of the neutral corner, ducking under Antonio's jabs. Antonio is on the defense as Ippo throws punches that get blocked. Antonio, on the ropes, throws a right straight, Ippo dodges and ducks to the left.
