With the second uppercut landing cleanly and leaving everyone stupefied, Ippo loses balance and begins to fall, but throws a punch on the way before regaining balance. Sanada is surprised since a normal man would have been knocked out, and he gets ready to protect against another hit. Ippo lands his second hit on the guard and sends Sanada back. Despite having his guard up, Sanada is still hurt and against the ropes. Ippo resumes his barrage and lands many punches on Sanada's arms, but the latter takes an opening and uses an attack that switches their positions and leaves Ippo momentarily confused. Sanada gets in position for his Sunday punch and throws it once again. The first uppercut is blocked like it happened previously, but this time Ippo tightens his guard even more. Despite the precautions, the second uppercut once again lands cleanly and sends Ippo to the floor. Sanada knows that Ippo's brain hit the skull, so it will be almost impossible for the paralyzed champion to get back up. Having figured out the trick behind the tsubame gaeshi, Kamogawa tells Ippo to get up and make it through the round. Hearing his coach's voice, Ippo puts the mouthpiece back in his mouth and prepares to stand up again.
