Okita throws his corkscrew with much confidence thinking the victory is his. Ippo however, dodges the punch and delivers a devastating uppercut that immediately sends Okita back. Ippo throws a punch but misses, giving his opponent the chance to hit back. Both fighters begin to trade blows without blocking or dodging. Ippo's legs begin to shake, but he does not fall, and instead uses a combination ending in a body blow that leaves Okita in pain. Ippo connects a straight and sends Okita to the floor. As the referee begins the count, Takamura explains that being driven into a corner, Ippo did not know what to do so he set up a trap for the one hit he knew would come; the corkscrew blow. Despite all the damage, Okita stands up, and the referee resumes the fight. With only thirty seconds remaining for the end of the first round, they both throw punches at the same time, but Ippo lands his first.
