In Ippo's locker room, his gym mates wish him luck and leave. Takamura then points out that Ippo is different from he usually is before a fight, he notes that he is just sitting, saving energy for the actual match.

As the disappointing openers end, everybody in the Kourakuen Hall gets exited with the entrance of Mashiba, who is soon followed by Ippo. As noted by the commentator, predictions on the outcome are 50/50. As they enter the ring and are introduced, Fujii notes that being the final of the tournament, the fight will be six rounds long. Both fighters then go back to their respective corners to wait with their seconds the start of the match.
