Despite being told to rest, by both his mother and his coach, Ippo decides to do light exercise but ends up doing a full road work session. Before going home, he stops by the bakery. He sees the girl who was there last time. When she talks to him, he sends all his breads flying in the air. But catches them with jabs and explains he is a boxer. The girl asks if it is fun, to which he replies that it is. She wishes him luck and he happily leaves.

As Takamura trains with the coach, he begs him to rest, but once he sees Ippo running, he is motivated and continues to train.

Miyata and Mashiba both make the weight limit for their fight. Mashiba tries to tease Miyata, but the latter simply ignores him, much to the former's surprise.
