Re: Hajime no Ippo 1027
As Takumura keeps going up through the weight classes, I think he'll begin to struggle more and more. It was said way earlier in the manga that Japanese boxers typically excel in the lower weight classes and heavier class boxers are rare. According to real world statistics there has never been a Japanese world champion in the top 4 boxing weight classes. (heavy weight, cruiser weight, light heavy weight, and super middle weight).
