With the audience back on his side, Ippo plans to make this the final round. He is surprised at how much Sanada has recovered, but moves in at Kamogawa's signal. He throws a hook that is barely dodged, and follows with another that Sanada uses to get into his range. Once at close range, Sanada follows the plan and delivers a body blow before retreating. This continues as every time Ippo attacks, Sanada counters with a hit to a vital organ in the abdominal area. Ippo's punches begin to swing wider and he slowly falls victim to the accumulated damage. Dankichi explains that the tactic is a dangerous one, but is is Sanada's skills what gives him the confidence in it. Ippo's pain increases with every hit he receives, until he can no longer move. Sanada sees the opportunity and tries to end the fight.
