Takamura lost to David Eagle in my opinion, so I'd reckon Ricardo Martinez is better contrary to the author's claims otherwise. laughing out loud

In other news, just read the latest chapter. For the first time in a long time, I am seriously considering dropping this manga. I am convinced the author has nothing but hatred and contempt towards the title character. roll eyes (sarcastic)

I'm fine with the manga right now. It just feels worse cause it is a wait for chapters instead of the massive back catalogue.

We don't really know enough about Martinez frankly. Date is the closet person to give him a "challenge" but even he basically failed to make the world champ break a sweat.

Takamura has Word of God on his side and the advantage of a higher weight class so there is that.

Takamura cheated to beat David Eagle and would've lost by TKO had the ref been doing his job. wink

That is probably true but the ref is Japanese so it could have been an inside job~

I wish more fights took place outside of Japan.

It's totally unrealistic for a world champion to do multiple world title fights in Japan. That would never happen in real life. They would've dragged Takamura to Las Vegas or there would have been no fight. The only reason Mori does it is because it makes it easier Ippo, Itagaki, Miyata, Sendo or Mashiba simultaneously being on Takamura's undercard, thereby allowing him to do multiple fights in the same arc.

Haha, no I get that wasn't even about "Hammer Nao", but about Ippo's soft spot.

Was kind of a sad reunion.. I also thought Coach Kamogawa was unusually focused on keeping them from having a proper catching up. His excuse that winners have nothing to say to losers rings hollow, given all the times Sendou or Date or Vorg or Speed Star visited Ippo after a match. Wonder if he was hurt more by losing a student then he let on, and nursed a bit of a grudge..

Kamogawa does have a sore spot about stuff like that. It's not apparent yet but he is still very mad about Miyata and his dad leaving.

So you guys caught up w/ the manga? I'm disappointed that the author didn't go down the route where Ippo kills the current opponent by accident and drags out the manga more more story lines.

I don't think Ippo would continue boxing if he actually killed someone lol.

What if he killed someone in his boat instead of in the ring? Would he stop boxing?

Probably, knowing Ippo even at chapter 300+. laughing out loud

If Ippo hasn't had a freak out over a near death experience yet, but does it later, then that's likely one case of Kenichi inspiring the manga that inspired it..

So am I right to call Itagaki "Mini-Miyata" and Imai Kyousuke "Mini-Ippo"?

Although Itagaki seems the more inferior copy. Ippo beat him a lot easier then Kyousuke in spar, that's for sure.

That comparison isnít too bad but donít get too confident in calling Itagaki and inferior Miyata. He has some showings later that are frankly ridiculous lol.

I like how he flipped off the audience and said "kiss my ass" at Takamura's first world title win.

Up to the man of the sea. So Ippo ends another boxing career.

Is he in competition with Mashiba or something? smile

I saw the Rising version not long ago, and there was a lot left out. Almost no real build up, some scenes completely cut, and a lot of the tension and drama didn't make it in. Basically, he was an unmemorable "monster of the week" in the show, compared to the Eagle fight, the flashback to world war II, and that one fighter who's like a more sadistic Mashiba that talks about fights like they're steaks.

Speaking of hard feelings, like Miyata leaving the gym, I wonder if Kamogawa kind of blames Ippo for driving him off, and considers him an inferior consolation prize.

He IS pretty hard on Ippo. Couldn't even stop calling him "Brat" when he won the national title. And then he crushed his confidence by claiming Miyata blew past him.

I doubt they'll ever "go there", but if Miyata is considered > Ippo, it's not much of a leap of logic.

No way. Miyata actually uses his head whereas Kamogawa wants fighters who win after getting their brains bashed in (which is why he seems like Ippo more than Takamura).
