Unconscious at first, Volg wakes up upon hearing Ramuda encouraging him. He has problems regaining control of his body but motivated to fight against Ippo one more time, he manages to get up when the referee's count is at eight. Both fighter are standing on shaky legs as they attempt an exchange, but it is Volg who is forced to clinch in order to remain standing. The bell rings ending the round, and the the fighters can barely make it back to their corners.
Both fighters go through the remaining rounds at a seemingly equal level until the bell for the tenth round rings. They both think the scores are too close, so in the final round they definitely must achieve a knockout. In the middle of the exchange, Volg slips but the referee marks it as a down. Volg and his trainer protest but the referee does not change the decision and orders him to keep fighting. With only thirty seconds left, Volg attempts to finish it but is unable to do so before the bell rings.
Now the fighters, seconds and spectators await the decision that will declare the new champion.
