The day of Miyata's and Mashiba's match arrives, Ippo and Takamura encounter Fujii at the the hall, and they walk in together.

Miyata in his locker room, discusses with his father, his determination to face Ippo, who has made it that far in order to fulfill his promise.

Meanwhile, in Mashiba's room, his gym mates discuss on how arrogant he is, and about his disturbing presence.

Before the match begins, the entire audience is unusually quiet, waiting for the bell to ring. Fujii, Ippo and Takamura discuss and with much detail analyze the advantages and disadvantage of each fighter. They end up deciding to cheer for Miyata.

As the bell rings, both fighters immediately go to the center of the ring and quickly exchange the first punches that mark the beginning of the match that will decide the finals of the tournament.
