- Title Page Character(s): Makunouchi Ippo, Sendou Takeshi
Kamogawa makes Ippo sit down this time, and together they theorize that Sendou is in bad shape as well. The referee asks if Ippo can continue, and the latter replies positively. Kamogawa notes to himself that he will throw the towel if it gets worse. In Sendou's corner, his second praises and encourages him as the public cheers for him.
When the next round is announced, Ippo goes out in a bad shape, while Sendou remains sitting, with his second besides him. The referee goes over to see what is happening, and after examining Sendou, the referee ends the match, declaring Ippo the winner. It is revealed that Sendou was unconscious after receiving the hit to the temple, and was fighting only due to the cheers.
