Initially intending to end the match, the referee decides to not stop it after seeing Miyata's resolve. As soon as the fight resumes, the bell rings and Miyata's father takes him to the corner. After Miyata comments on how it is raining, his father realizes that his eardrum is ruptured. Instead of stopping the fight, he gives his son advice.
And the round begins, Miyata's father recalls how it was that same counter that ended his career. Miyata initially dodges all of Sisphar's attacks, but is suddenly caught with a body blow after dodging a hook. When he is hit on the ear, he begins hearing the "rain" again and recalls his conversation with Chana. Miyata then dodges a blow, and misses an uppercut himself. The missed uppercut throws him of balance, and Sisphar launches a straight. Taking advantage of the opportunity, Miyata intercepts with a successful counter that lands in Sisphar's mouth.
