We Can't Turn Back is the 221st chapter of Morikawa Jouji's manga series Hajime no Ippo.



Kimura gets up but is unable to move, due to the pressure of being in the pro ring. The fight continues and he manages to survive the first round.

In his corner, he is told to watch his opponent and focus regain his rhythm but he does not seem to be listening.

The second round begins and the public is displeased with the fact that all Kimura does is run away. However when Aoki and Takamura arrive to encourage him, he realizes just how low his opponent level actually is, compared to Takamura's. Keeping in mind how fast and strong Takamura is, Kimura easily outclasses his opponent and wins the fight by knockout.

While Aoki wins his debut match, Kimura reflects on how they used to be; looking down on the rest of humanity with no worries in the world. He remembers wanting to change his life style and be able to tell his classmates in the future that he has settled down. However he notice how boring that would have been, and that they have been pulled in by the world of boxing, a world they can no longer escape.
