The Victor on the Stretcher is the 169th chapter of Morikawa Jouji's manga series Hajime no Ippo.



Despite showing no signs of getting up at first, Volg slowly does so as the count reaches seven. He tells himself that if he can bring his arms up and take a fighting pose, he will be able to keep fighting. Ippo, who is holding the ropes in order to remain standing, notes to himself that there is no way he can keep fighting. As Volg realizes that he does enjoy boxing, he falls on the referee and the count reaches ten.

Declared the winner of the Class A Tournament, Ippo celebrates with his coach and manager, when Volg approaches them and congratulates Ippo on the victory. As Kamogawa greets Ramuda, they are interrupted by Ippo falling unconscious. He is carried out on a stretcher (originally intended for Volg), and taken to the hospital.

As he leaves the hall, Date notes how much Ippo has evolved, and promises to himself to not give up the belt.
