Yoshida Mitsuo is a boxer who participated in the Eastern Japan Rookie King tournament, the same year as Makunouchi Ippo. During the second heat, he fought against Kobashi Kenta and lost.


Yoshida is a good boxer, with an impressive record as an amateur, having participated in the Interhigh Championship and made it to the finals two years in a row, however, he was beaten by Hayami Ryuuichi.

He was labeled to be one of the four seeds (along with Mashiba, Miyata, Hayami) of the East Japan Rookie King Tournament, the year that Ippo participated in it. During the first round of the tournament he was matched up against Kobashi Kenta, which he was highly in favor to win against the no-name (at the time) Kobashi.

Early in round 1 of the match, Yoshida had trouble overcoming Kobashi's strategy which included light jabs and clinching to throw him off his rhythm. The match continued this way until the end, with Kobashi having complete control of the match and Yoshida unable to do a thing, ultimately losing by decision.

He was never seen or heard again afterwards.


Yoshida is most likely an In Fighter. He attacked using various combinations.
