Ippo must defend his title for the first time against a former junior featherweight champion.
In this movie you see Ippo in his first title defense after he defeats Sendo at the end of the series. It shows Ippo and how well he has developed over months after the fierce fight with Sendo. He learns that his opponent is the former junior featherweight champion who is very strong and his name is Sanada Kazuki and since he is in doctor he knows where to hit a person to inflict max damage without having to have a lot of power. There is another twist to this great film. Sanada corner man is Ippo's trainer Kamagowa old opponent. This movie is a must see for all Hajime no Ippo fans. Lots of bone crushing blows and of course humor, an enjoyable film for all fans. I recommend this film for all anime fans and non-anime fans everywhere.
