Fujiwara was Makunouchi Ippo's second opponent in the pro ring. At the advice of his coach, he attempted to in-fight with Ippo, but after feeling the powerful blows, he realized he had no chance in a fair fight so decided to use foul play and headbutts. Although the referee spots his foul play once he is still quite skilled at hiding it. This gives him a temporary advantage, however, Ippo is able to block the headbutting with one of his own and defeats him in the first round.
