It all starts with the many trails and hardships of a young boy. At first glance he seems like any other young man trying to make his way through society, but he has an odd hobby. He seeks out strength more than anyone else! Six floors under the Tokyo Dome exists an frightening place. A literal "sacred ground" for those who desire power! A place that exists for the sole reason of deciding the world's strongest man! This is about non other that Grappler Hanma Baki!

Son of Ogre 196

Chapter 196 - Before time runs out.

Tokugawa: Before my my life ends ...
Tokugawa: Before my time runs out, there's a dream I would like to be granted.

Kureha: hmmm ... looking at your clinical records ...

Kureha: With your health and wealth, I'm sure with these two powers you can accomplish most of your dreams.

Tokio: Yeah, that's for sure. hahaha ...

Tokugawa: Whether it's 1 month, 3 months, or half a year ...

Tokugawa: I know I'm not going to last another year.

Kureha: Mr. Tokugawa.

Tokugawa: Which is why I have to hurry.

Kureha: With coughing up blood there comes a certain shock.
However, you real condition is ...

Tokugawa: Satou.
Satou: Yes.

Tokugawa: Lend me your ear.

Satou: Yes ... Yes ...

Satou: I understand.

Tokugawa: Get on it immediately.

Kureha: Could a have a word, Mr. Tokugawa.

Tokugawa: Gotta hurry ...

Kureha: Mr. Tokugawa.

Tokugawa: Don't drag your feet, move already!!

OPBF Super Welter Weight Champion Mani Akio

Reporter: Then as a last question. Passing through Amateur to Pro without being defeated. At the Pro league winning all 14 matches with 1 round KO's.

Your round record and winning career ... Did purposely you aim for this?

Akio: I'm not really paying attention to the records.
What's in my mind at the time is ...
The days that I spend in the ring ...

Within that space I don't want to spend any useless time.

Akio: In response to my opponents action I answer with the most logical reaction.
Akio: If logic allows it, 3 minutes is too long to be in the ring.

Reporter: So within in your future matches ...
Akio: I will follow through with my logic.

Reporters: Thank you! Where expecting you at the World competition. Thanks for the cooperation!

Akio: What commotion ...
Coach: hahaha ...

Akio: ...

Akio: What happened ...
Coach: Oh, that ... Well ...

Akio: That's impossible. It was broken with a bare fisted right straight.
Akio: That just doesn't follow logic.

Coach: Well, I guess so ...

Akio: Is he here?

Coach: Yeah, in front of the mirror.

(Our man Retsu, looks like his shoulder is healed up)

Akio: Can I have a spar?

Coach: What!!? With him!!?

Akio: He can do it.
Akio: I won't injure him.

Retsu: Yes?

Coach: I think it's a one in a lifetime chance.
Retsu: I have no objections.

Retsu: Well, who is my opponent?

Akio: Yes, me over here.

Akio: Hnn?

Retsu: I decline.

Coach: You decline??

Retsu: With him as an opponent it would be a handicap to me.

Retsu: With that man's ability, there would be no need for me to go all out.

With a boxing challenge infront of him, the amateur Retsu shows dissatisfaction. Will it become the Champion Vs Retsu!!?
