The Kourakuen Hall is shaking with the fans acclaiming the performances of both fighters and intensely cheering for their new champion. Ippo, who still can not believe he is the new champion, is congratulated by Sendou himself, who tells him to stand proud and promises they will do it again. The former champion then leaves while the people cheer his name.
Ippo is then presented with the JBC featherweight division title belt, which he wears before jumping of joy in the air. He is asked to take a picture, so he takes his fighting pose, but Hachi jumps in and makes it in time to appear on the ring in Ippo's picture by his side.
