I wonder if one of Mashiba's weaknesses is that he's a head hunter. Either way, this "emotions off" gimmick is kind of lame and ruining the fight. It's like the magician dude who had "phantom punches" because he tied his gloves loosely. I'm expecting it to turn out he went through hypnosis or something.

Mike Tyson did go to a hypnotist during his younger years before fights.

I'm wondering if this is going to be similar to Sendo in the sense that Mashiba does rely on his intimidation to gain and press an advantage in fights, and it will throw him off of his A game for a bit when it doesn't work (part of his rhythm). We already see he was getting irritated at Iga not showing pain and slightly changed his approach because of it (though he and his coach already acknowledged if Iga survives another round he's actually a respectable foe).

What I dont see is the point of the chopping right. I dont remember it being a big deal on the fight against Ippo or even Miyata or Kimura.

Flickers hit on the body too, and being a head hunter would be something bad if you miss, wich dont seem to be the case.

The hypnosis thing might be good, and would be a nice way to prove that Baron is schemy.
Yes, I mispelled some words and have some grammar errors.

The chopping right is a move explicitly designed to punish in fighters who weave under his flickers. It's a close range move using his off hand since his hitman style combined with his arm length makes his jab useless in close quarters. Ippo dodging it (back in the day) was considered the exception, not the rule, and was meant to highlight Ippo's agility. IIRC Mashiba's uppercut was explicitly designed to counter Ippo's ability to dodge the chopping right.

Has Mashiba evolved as a fighter?

Feels like it's always the same thing with him. Even moreso than Ippo.
