The exchange continues and neither fighter is able to get the upper hand by the time the bell rings.
Meanwhile, Ippo tells Kamogawa that even though he felt like he was with a caged animal in the ring, going forward is the best option for him.
The second round begins and the fighters engage each other, with Volg dominating with hooks and uppercuts. He notes to himself that he does not want to use the white fang, but he realizes that normal combinations are not enough as Ippo advances. Not wanting to end Ippo's career with the white fang, Volg hopes he can take him down with only regular punches, but Ippo dodges and connects his gazelle punch, sending Volg to the floor as Ramuda notes how Volg's softness is the reason it happened.
