After many hours of harsh and exhaustive training. Ippo stops at the the bakery to see the girl working there. Once in there, he notices that she is not in the cheerful mood she is usually in. Believing she is like that because of Miyata's loss, he says the opponent used an illegal move, but she stops him, revealing she is Mashiba's sister.
At Takamura's place, Ippo tells him what happened and makes him promise he will not tell anybody. The next day however, it is revealed that Takamura told everything to Aoki and Kimura. They repeatedly tease Ippo about it until he says he is leaving. When he opens the door, Fujii walks in, wanting to share a story about Mashiba and his sister.
