The fight continues with Mashiba outclassing Ippo with his repeated flicker jab, despite the latter's attempts to get out of his opponents range. Mashiba once again attempts his usual knockout pattern, but his final attack (chopping right) is stopped by Ippo's solid guard. Ippo is repeatedly hit by the flickers, but as noted by his gym mates who were originally telling him to calm down, he begins to become use to them and soon starts dodging them, thus avoiding serious damage. Ippo who is now swaying, manages to get into Mashiba's zone and as he is about to deliver a powerful hit, the bell ends the second round. The round is scored 10-9 in favor of Mashiba and the referee sends the fighters to their corners.
