Makino Fumito (牧野 文人) is a character in Hajime no Ippo. He is a featherweight boxer affiliated with the Sayama Boxing Gym. His main fights in the series are against Itagaki Manabu.

His surname is Makino. In Japan, surnames are listed before given names.


Makino is the black mark of Itagaki's pro debut. He won the match by using a headbutt, followed by an elbow strike. Neither foul was acknowleged by the ref so after Itagaki's second down, Makino was declared the winner. Following his first win, Makino adopts a Hitman Style similar to that used by Mashiba Ryou. His trainer says that he chose this style because he wished to use a more offensive style of boxing.

Makino's only fan is Atsushi, a young boy who is confined to a wheelchair. Makino's sympathy for Atsushi leads him to want to show the boy that hard work pays off, even for underdogs. Because of Atsushi, Makino attends his bout with Itagaki in the East Japan Rookie King Tournament choosing not to commit any fouls. He loses by second round KO.

He is first seen in Itagaki's debut match, struggling against him, and cheating. His personality was a bit shown, as he was always looking down and not reacting alot to the crowd, in another way he was shy. Later, on Itagaki's rematch against him, he was really different. After he was starting to win matches, and making all his way up to reaching the All Japan Rookie King Tournament, he changed completely. When he met once again Itagaki face to face after a long time before their rematch, his behavior was quite aggressive, as also he almost mocked Ippo.

Boxing StyleEdit

Early in his boxing career as he was seen in Itagaki's debut match, he was fighting recklessly, as of cheating but also quite struggling against him, as the only thing in his mind was victory. Later in the story, he had a rematch against Itagaki, in the East Japan Rookie King Finals. He changed alot, after he started winning some matches, and that his coach taught him more about boxing, as he said that now he is a real professional boxer and not as he was back then. The new style he learned was the Hitman-Style, as also for the technique, Flicker Jab. He became a lot stronger since his match against Itagaki, and also he followed the rules without cheating like before, even if he tried in the end of the rematch against Itagaki.
