At last Gonzales makes a good distance and keeps fighting with his out boxing.
In the crowd Sendou doesn't like Gonzales's fighting style and Mashiba explains that, Ippo's every body blow has an incredible effect. He mentions, his busting elbow and Sendou's broken ribs are the results of Ippo's body blows. For Mashiba, it's a smart move to keep himself out of the danger.
