At night in his room and after being encouraged by everyone to go for the Japanese title, Ippo reflects on his past fights and remembers the speed and strength of previous opponents. This makes him wonder just how strong Date can be.

The next day at the gym, Ippo helps Yamada, who is being laughed at for failing at jump rope just like Ippo did at the beginning. It is also noted by Kimura, that it has been three months since Ippo's last fight, so his fist should be healed.

After being told by Dr. Yamaguchi that his hand is ready to be used full power, Ippo goes back to the gym and hits the sandbag with a powerful straight, while he has the champion on his mind.
