The match between Ippo and Ozuma begins and both boxers rush in simultaneously. Taking each other by surprise, they both throw a punch and block the others's. Ippo, begins to send out several jabs. The coach hopes Ippo can down Ozuma before his ducking starts to slow and Ozuma's coach tells his student to create distance. Ippo lands a blow to Ozuma's face and goes for another, but Ozuma evades. Ozuma spins and sends out one of his hooks, but Ippo ducks and tries a body blow. Ozuma barely dodges and tries another hook, but Ippo ducks once again and the process repeats several times, leaving the audience at the edge of their seats. Ozuma's hooks soon begin to get faster, and Ippo is hit by one of them, knocking him down.
