The Champion's Fist is the 178th chapter of Morikawa Jouji's manga series Hajime no Ippo.



The first round ends with Takamura beaten and his opponent untouched.

Ippo, Aoki and Kimura keep cheering for him, as Takamura tells a worried Kamogawa that he will win no matter what as he must keep being the goal of the trio.

The second round begins and Takamura attempts a display of his strength by slamming his body to Tamaki's, but he loses the exchange and gets pushed back. Tamaki full of determination, attacks Takamura, whose legs begin to shake after the received punches. Tamaki stops instead of ending the fight when he notices that Takamura's eyes are still alive. Takamura, who can not move from the ropes due to the damage, taunts Tamaki to lure him in. Tamaki is confused as he does not know if Takamura is actually hurt or not. However he decides to attack, and succeeds in delivering strong combinations. Takamura appears to fall, but regains his balance and connects a devastating uppercut. Despite having damage on his legs now, Tamaki decides to attack as he knows that Takamura is hurt as well. On his way in, Tamaki is caught by a powerful combination that drops him.
