Ok I know many people won't be able to discuss this topic as the manga isn't all that mainstream but even so, I'm a big fan of Hajime no Ippo and the many characters in it. I want to know what fights or match ups you think will be made before the story ends, or if not, then ones you would like to see anyway and the reason why.

Personally my favourites were ippo vs. Volg (Vorg) and Ippo vs. Sendo (J.title match). The characterisation and emotion behind the story was intense and the action... amazing! A fight I was surprised to find myself loving as well (despite not initially liking the characters much) was Mashiba vs. Sawamura, because of how badass it was! Am I right? Finally I also have found myself liking Itagaki for his insane speed despite not caring much for him at all at first, but can't seem to predict how he'd do in the A-class tournament.

I am aware many people haven't read it all cause its ridiculously long, but it is amazing and people who know of it should have a lil say just for fun even if it was a fight you thought was boring or a character you don't necessarily like. Or even throw in your favourite five characters in order.

I REALLY want to know what happens next, even if the story isn't told from the writers, so throw some made up predictions of story plot and I'll share mine after yours, it'll be sweet!

When I first started this manga it already had more than 800 chapters and I thought it was ridiculously long, too. I couldn't believe it was still ongoing! Then I caught up in less than three days and started whining about it not having more chapters.

My favorites are the Ippo vs. Sendo matches, the Takamura vs. Hawk match, and the upcoming match with Woli, which I am beyond excited for, will probably become another favorite. I also enjoyed the Sawamura vs. Mashiba and the Date vs. Martinez match a good deal. The end of both arcs were sad and I loved how hard they tried. Aside from my favorites, I would like to add that my least favorite match has to be the MIyata vs. Randy Boy Jr. A lot of people, self-included, were shocked and appalled that Miyata won. I would add the Itagaki matches to my least favorite but I can't care about what his character goes through and his attitude annoys me, though I respect his talent and quick thinking.
Even though I can't imagine Ippo winning against him unless he goes through another 800+ chapters of development, I want to see an official Ippo vs. Ricardo Martinez match. I would also love to see Ippo fight Randy Boy Jr. to see how he compares to Miyata if nothing else. As for what I expect, I wouldn't be surprised to see Ippo fighting Itagaki in the future but I'd prefer them to stay as they are now. Also, I know they were all like, Ippo and Miyata will fight on different stages never to meet again, but I can still see the manga ending with an Ippo vs. Miyata match, though I wouldn't mind either way.

My favorite characters in order:
Ippo
Coach Kamogawa
Takamura (except sometimes when he really, really crosses the line on how cruel he is)
Mashiba


Sigh* Now I feel like re-reading the available chapters.
