After making it to the semi finals of the tournament, Ippo studies Hayami's recent match with his coach. Thinking that as an in fighter, he would have the advantage, Ippo is proven wrong as Hayami knocks out his opponent after toying with him for three rounds.

Realizing that infighting will not be enough, they begin training with a combination of extensive road work and dodging exercises in order to exhaust Hayami by making him miss the shots of his "shotgun".

Later in the night, Ippo, along with Kimura and Takamura are eating at the Chuuka Soba where Aoki works. They begin talking about Hayami and Aoki's impending match, leading to the conclusion that anyone who fights before Aoki, should not be feared.
