- Title Page Character(s): Makunouchi Ippo, Mashiba Ryou
Meanwhile, Mashiba explains to his sister how he does not believe in anyone other than himself, because from the beginning he has always been the one to blame for everything wrong that happens. He says that once he beats Ippo, he will fight for the Japanese title and later take the world title, in order to prove how much he is worth.
Ippo, after hearing the story, still refuses to forgive Mashiba's action and is determined to win the fight. The conversation is interrupted by the coach, who takes them to the other room and says he has found Mashiba's weakness.
