Yeah it's my favorite fight of the series so far by far.

You got the old versus the new, the theme of conviction and belief in your style, conflicting views on tradition, etc. etc.

It's so good.

The author has a bit of a pattern of letting each fighter get a cool move or tide turning moment in but you can usually tell who will win based on the order of who powered up when but the Sekibayashi fight I literally had no idea who would win and so many times I was like "that's the end of it drat". Also the Fatty VS Cop fight I thought was gonna be a win for fatty tbh.

Honestly if Fattys knees had held out he might have won. Guy was beating rear end and ACCELERATING

from the last page, I appreciate the author knowing that Boxers tend to be perpetually dunked on by other traditional martial arts in manga and such and didn't go that same road. I also find it funny that Gaolang just can't deal with Saw either.

Okubo's putting up a much better showing than I would've expected. Honestly, there's been very little outright jobbing in the series--Mockey is the only case I'd really call egregious, and the author notes on that one were pretty much "I did want to give this guy a chance to show off, but I realized partway through that there wasn't really another way that fight could have gone, sorry"

Everyone thought that the gimmick fighters would be eliminated early but it turns out the fang was 2 fighters stuffed into a bodysuit.

OHHHH YEAHHHH.

Our boy Okubo with surprise attack.

I know the Fang has no way of losing THIS early but I'm still rooting for Okubo, he's such a good guy. It's a nice change from the assassins and psychopaths and rapists we've seen so far.

It's a bit premature of me (sorry Okubo, but you backstoried first), but here's a preview of our Round 2 Matches!

Cosmo vs. Judge Dredd

It's been a while since we've seen these guys fight! Cosmo was in the very first bout, taking down our sweet, innocent boy Adam Dudley with a vicious choke hold, after using his special gimmick technique to get in on his larger opponent. Akoya beat down Haruo in the second match, which... wasn't really about Akoya that much. He had a weird cooperation gimmick going with his CEO, which didn't work so he just did things his way. Itherwise the only thing th at really memorable was a good defense against strikes. Which... seems less than useful against Cosmo. Tentatively calling this for Cosmo.

Ohma vs. Raian

Hey, it's Ohma! In a fight that I can't say I really care about that much! There's a couple ways this could go, to be honest--it could be a dumb Limiter Removal slugfest, or Ohma could decide not to do the thing that kills him and try and eke out a victory on technique. Either way I'm calling it for Ohma because main character and Raian is an rear end in a top hat that can go eat a bucket of sand, but there's not much more analysis I have than that.

WAKATSUKI TAKESHI vs. JULIUS REINHOLD

This fight is going to be incredible. Forget technique, these guys both have the gimmick of "I have ludicrous levels of physical strength". This is going to be a brutal slugfest and I am READY. Leaning Wakatsuki because he clearly has more to show, but I could see Julius taking it

Muteba Gizenga vs. The Man, The Myth, the Legend, Sekibayashi Jun!


Not gonna lie, I'm worried for Jun. I can respect his commitment to "I will never block", but I have to question it's effectiveness against the guy who has mastered every dirty trick in the book and is ridiculously strong on top of that. It's very Face vs Heel, but... one way or another, this isn't going to be great for Jun.

Yoroizuka Saw Paing vs Mizakuchi Rei


Really not sure about this one, because we haven't seen a *ton* out of Mikazuchi. I'm sure that the power of repeated cranial trauma will keep Saw from getting chumped, but I don't really know how he'll get hits in,except maybe just going for trades Coinflip!

Kuroki "Devil Lance" Gensai vs Kiryu "Colossal Erection" Setsuna


I think this will be a good match. They both have great defense, both have a technique that makes their hits absolutely brutal. I think Kiryu's Ohmaboner is going to give him that extra bit of motivation to take this one

Hatsumi Sen vs. Bando "probably dead by this point" Yohei


See above. Even if Bando is still alive, he's going to be severely weakened, and even if he werent, Sen is no slouch. Easy victory for Sen.

Gaolang Wongsawat vs. Kanoh Agito


Man, I wish there was uncertainty here, but... it's the Fang. The only peoplenO see him losong to are Sen, Setsuna, or Ohma. I think this will be the fight where we really see him cut loose (as well as Okubo is doing, I think we're only going to see a glimpse of Fang's true power). Hopefully Gaolang punches him in the face a bunch on the way out.

Eh, I'd give Wakatsuki better chances against Fang than either Ohma for sure, and probably Setsuna as well.
