While the members of the gym watch the video, the coach points out that Mashiba's weakness, is his hitman style which leaves too many openings. As they theorize that by getting closer, Ippo will have a chance, Takamura points out Mashiba's reach advantage. Realizing that he can not face the flicker jab from so far away, he begins to lose hope, but is stopped by the coach who reminds him that it is a matter of strength and if he works on his dash, he can get in. Motivated by this, Ippo begins his dash training.

Meanwhile at the Toho Boxing Gym, Mashiba is training as Fujii watches and notes that his flicker, is an anti-Makunouchi one.
