Confident that Mashiba will not be able to use his left arm, and that the hitman is only a "bluff", Ippo advances intending to finish the fight, but is extremely surprised when he receives a flicker jab to the face. Mashiba, despite the severe pain, manages a combination with both arms, finishing with a chopping right that sends Ippo down. As referee counts, notes to himself how strong Mashiba is, and begins to lose hope. However, upon noticing Mashiba's shaking legs, Ippo regains his confidence and stands up with much struggle after holding the ropes. Mashiba desperately attacks, but Ippo dodges and realizing that he can not win with only his left, he hits him with his right, which he repeats two more times despite his injuries.
