Hajime no Ippo: Rising episode 20
What is wrong with those Japanese people? Thinking they can mess with my head by saying that Mamoru suffers from detached retina. The man has never been so strong. No way is he going blind! Mamoru for president!
Put all that useless speculation aside and just enjoy as Mamoru teaches that guy the difference between a textbook boxer, someone that has it all, and a real boxer like Mamoru, someone that has something to lose. Mamoru has been swinging like his life depended on it and even I started to think that he might have been going bind.
Mamoru temporarily lost his left eye due to the amount of blood that kept seeping into his eye. He had only his right and he fought splendidly. Detached retina? I don’t think so. A pair of big, rough, steel balls? Obviously. That’s why he’s my favourite character. To hell with Ippo and his whining attitude. All boxers should be like Mamoru.
I’m not going into the specifics, but Mamoru is obviously going to win. He has him right where he wants him and there’s nowhere the current champion can go without Mamoru hunting him down. Besides, Mamoru might as well take it easy and avoid getting hit at this point. It’s a given that he’s way ahead in points and would definitely win the match if it ever came to a judge’s decision. Of course, that’s not Mamoru’s style and he’s definitely looking to end it by knocking his opponent down until he can no longer get up. I’m pretty sure that next week’s episode should wrap things up quite nicely. No point in dragging it out at this point.
