Aoki: It will probably be tough for Ippo to keep up with us active boxers so...
Itagaki: Let’s leave Kimura san to him. Well then.
Aoki: Let’s speed up!
Ippo: By the way, how is the chairman doing?
Aoki: He went to Nekota san to get some rest.
Itagaki: We haven’t heard yet when he will return.
Ippo: I understand. That’s a shame. I wanted to see him. By the way Kimura san, who will be your next opponent?
Kimura: Don…don’t make me talk.
Ippo: Y…you’re right! I’m sorry!
Aoki: Itagaki! Dash!
Ippo: Who will be Kimura san’s opponent? What’s the ranking?
Itagaki: Ehm. I don’t think he has a ranking yet.
Aoki: He has no ranking yet in Japan, and among the ranked fighters, Kimura’s the most lucrative.
Itagaki: That’s why he was requested!
Ippo: So he wants to get Kimura san’s ranking! Give your best Kimura san! Ahh! Can I see one of his fights?
Aoiki: There’re videos of him at the Gym.
Ippo: I will later come get them. I will research him too! Ah! Also!
Aoki: Can’t you finish your questions at one go?!
Ippo: Oh right that too! And this!
Aoki: How many laps has he done now…Isn’t he putting weights on his legs?
Itagaki: Apparently, he has more time so he increased his road walks!
Ippo: Kimura san!
Kimura: It’s annoying so stop moving around.
Ippo: Anyway, let’s give our best.
Kimrua: Stop screaming.
Ippo: Let’s win!
Kimura: Tch… Oh well…This isn't too bad.
Ippo: It hasn’t been that long since I came to the Gym…but it feels nostalgic.
Ippo: The first time I was sparring was at the gym downstairs. Miyata kun knocked me down many times. It’s just recently when I fought against Sendou san. It wasn’t just that knocked me down, but I lost my conciseness. The only thing I recall are painful things.
Yagi: You were here! Sorry for the wait! Sorry for the wait! I found it. Kimura kun’s next opponent’s video!
Yogi: As usual, your swing brings me chills.
Ippo: S…Sorry about it. I used the ring without permission.
Yagi: Don’t worry. It’s not like you’re a stranger here.
Ippo: I will rent this video then.
Yagi: You will go home already?
Ippo: I still have work to do. Sorry for being so hectic.
Yogi: Work huh. I see.
Yagi: I couldn’t help but have feelings of expectation after seeing your power being no different than before. I see… Despite carrying that fist and having the same body as before. Your job isn’t a boxer anymore.
Ippo: Hmmm? He lost again. I wanted to know what kind of weapon he possesses but…he lost his match easily.
Ippo: The video was provided by the opponent, so they intentionally picked a video that can’t be researched and make us underestimate him.
Ippo: We won’t fall for this trick. I will watch it until I can strip you naked. He’s an A rank boxer, so there has to be something.
Ippo: Hmm his jab isn’t too bad. If I classify him then he’s a boxer fighter, but more of a boxer.
Ippo: Ah! His left hook is tricky! He lets his opponent get in and then gives him this and then runs away. He uses this often so he must be skilled at it.
Ippo: I would duck and avoid it. It’s upright so I can see his body. I would then target his liver…No it’s not me!! It’s Kimura san who will fight.
Ippo: I have been telling it to myself. I’ve changed my road walk to a different time than the rest. I also tried not to show myself anymore at the Kamogawa Gym. I also didn’t intend to go the Hall anymore. Otherwise… I would want to come back again. I’m jealous of the ones who still can continue. I miss boxing. I have been telling myself. Are you sure you won’t come up with silly ideas? Are you sure you cut off your regrets?
