    Oh, boy.

    The Shiritori thing was clever, but now Itagaki is just smacking the stuffing out of Saeki. I mean, it's not too bad now. But next chapter, I think the beating will be even worse than when Saeki was pounding Itagaki.

    Itagaki's going to win.

    That's certain. He's a main character after all, annoying little prick too but that's beside the point.

    Is there at least a chance that Saeki can get to go out with some dignity and fight back properly instead of just being a patsy for Itagaki to walk all over?

    Even as someone who like Itagaki I'm not liking the turn this fight has taken. One sided fights aren't fun.

    It's over for Saeki. The body shots probably cut his ability to run, so he'll be a sitting duck for Itagaki.

    And for those who are just tuning in, Saeki is boned.

    I can only wonder if he'll be destroyed next chapter or if he'll hang on for one more before being KO'd.

    I agree. Honestly, it is like every boxer is unable to cope with the unexpected here, to a hilarious degree. We have gone from Saeki utterly dominating to switching it around. Personally, it was cooler when they were even.

    Well... there goes that fight.

    From an enjoyable and exciting speed battle where experience mattered to... whatever the hell this mess is.

    This is just... really dumb.

    It doesn't help that I don't like Itagaki anyway.

    this match has turned into failure. i can't even be disappointed, because i haven't liked any other recent fights. the manga's best days clearly were long ago.

    So.... when are we going to hold the wake for Saeki's dignity?

    I half expected to see Itagaki's swollen eye open up again to reveal a sharingan.

    He needs to fight someone important already. We know those second-rate guys who lost to Ippo won't beat him.

    you would think that being the more experienced boxer that Saeki would have learned to adapt by now. and the whole "Itagaiki isn't thinking so you can't predict his moves" stinks. when people stop thinking they go with their training and conditioning-- and for a more experienced fighter like Saeki-- he should be able to see through that conditioning.

    speaking of which, for a guy who's "not thinking" Itagaki seems to be "instinctively" evading every single attack AND using a lot of complex feints and combos!

    look at Naruto-- sometimes having a major supporting character lose a fight works to the writer's advantage: aka Rock Lee vs Gaara. which was one of the high-points of that manga.

    Well, someone managed to get his head back in the game.

    However, this round may very well be the last!

    I'm definitley backing Saeki in this one. I hope he wins instead of Itagaki. But that's just me. The way I see it, Saeki has a lot more heart in him and a lot more weight on his shoulders.
    Sometimes you lose things which you don't expect losing. It doesn't make the hurt any less.
