|←Golden Eagle||The Unfinished New Counter→|
Eleki's Shocker and Papaya's Coconut is the 17th episode of Hajime no Ippo: Rising series, and it was released on February 1st, 2014.
As the match with the other fighters end, Aoki's and Kimura's turn was against their opponents. The Filipino Lightweight Champion Eleki Battery, and the Indonesian Jr.Lightweight Champion Papaya Dachiu. Both of them were nervous about the matches and Ippo and Itagaki tried to calm them. Takamura came and ruined everything, telling them that their haircuts will look like them if they won't win. Following up in the matches, Kimura was on defense for a while, but then he noticed Eleki's weakness, that was by body blows. The match ended by a draw, and then was the trickster match, Aoki against Papaya. Aoki was confused for a little from the picture and his face being different but they both ended like it was a mudfight, to a draw. After those two fights ended, Miyata is ready for his turn, on his title defense.
