The 80's - A Time of Passion is the 216th chapter of Morikawa Jouji's manga series Hajime no Ippo.



In response to Ippo's question, Aoki and Kimura begin telling a five year old story of how they got into boxing:

On Kimura's motorcycle, he and Aoki (who had a habit of frequently touching his genitals) would go around the city getting into fights with students form other schools and building a reputation for themselves. While Kimura thinks that the idea of being expelled from school would be a really bad thing, Aoki believes it would give them the opportunity to start a gang. Their usual life consists mainly of a war between high schools where students of each school ambush and beat each other up.

After having an argument with Aoki and while riding on his motorcycle, Kimura encounters his old friend Kamiya but barely recognizes him. Kamiya, who is now "settled down" and takes Karate lessons at a dojo, tells Kimura that he changed his appearance in order to be accepted, as he was not able to defeat the members of the dojo as he was back then. Before leaving, Kamiya tells Kimura that the students they beat up recently, are looking for revenge and have someone strong to help them.
