I'm glad Mashiba was able to overcome his anger, but a bit disappointed that Ippo's conclusion to all this is "oh he's one of those". I'm wondering what it's going to take at this point to get him back in the ring. Short of his mom or Kumi dying, I just don't know what would trigger it.

Great chapter.
It totally debunks my theory that it should have been Kimura or Ippo the ones that just kill Iga, but hey, maybe he will still fight later.

That was a great chapter, for a second there I thought it was going to be one of those +30 chapter fights. Glad to see Mashiba "grow" in terms of not being an angry person 24/7. Great fight overall.

Ippo is still the main character.
Saying that Makunoichi is not the main character because someone else is fighting right now is like saying that Goku is not the main character of Dragon Ball Z because he was running in the serpent road while the Saiyans arrived at (his) planet, or the other instances where something like that happened in that manga (they where a few).

Anyways, you will read something in this board of the likes of "Finally Ippo is finally fighting again!" when Ippo start fighting or training to fight again.

I don't buy this "employing high level technique" crap. I mean, yeah, he did improve, but that's what you're supposed to do. He got beat up by taking advantage of his weakness. Therefore, you should do something to fix it. All I see was Mashiba knowing how to defend much better now and he's able to control his anger. Nothing I see screams he can take on the world now. When it comes to power jump it's not really that impressive.

The way I see it is Ippo and his still active rivals are generally world level competitors simply because they grow together. Ippo vs Gonzales was a demonstration of just how large a role technique and mentality can play. The insinuation against Gonzales was Ippo lost primarily because he didn’t and doesn’t have the right mental state. His last fight was lost from needing to try and style on his opponent rather than winning, again mentality.

Meanwhile, Sendo won when faced with a similar situation to Ippo because he wanted victory without showcasing greater technical skill, while Mashiba managed to control himself and prioritize winning over “petty” revenge, and used his experience advantage to surgically put the fear of god into Iga. They already acknowledged Mashiba is way ahead of Iga, but that Iga’s strategy of burning Mashiba out mentally was both legit and a viable approach. It goes back to Takamura’s inhuman/beast speech and needing to want victory

Mashiba was already at world level prior to this fight, Sendo has taken down the Mexican champion and Mashiba is on level with Sendo. This fight proved that Mashiba has no competition in his home country and will likely be taking on exclusively world competitors from now on. His standing should be better than Miyata's so he could feasibly fight the #2 or #1 contender next. Either way he can make a world champion challenge if he wins one more.

Sendo could have challenged Ricardo, after his last fight (at least that's what Ricardo's coach implied) but wants to fight Gonzalez first. Since Gonzalez has no reason to do so (Sendo is ranked lower and lost twice to Ippo who Gonzalez beat) Sendo is probably going to fight the man ranked above Gonzalez then fight Gonzalez from higher up then fight Ricardo (I figure he loses to Gonzalez).
