The judges score the fight and declare Sendou as the winner, despite the fact that Volg apparently slightly dominated the fight. Ramuda, angry and in shock protests against the decision, but Volg tells him they should leave. Sendou approaches Volg and tells him that he does not feel like the winner, so in a rematch he will defeat him by knockout. Volg refuses to acknowledge the challenge, as he suspects it was his last chance. As Volg leaves the ring, the audience celebrate their new champion.
After watching the match, Ippo is fully motivated to gain the JBC title and starts training. At the gym, he receives a phone call from Fujii, who informs him that the Otowa Boxing Gym has decided to end their contract with Volg. Ippo is in shock when he hears that Volg will be leaving for Russia the same day.
