Everyone was worried in the final episodes because they couldn’t find Mashiba’s opponent, Marcus Rosario. With the fight just two weeks away, Rosario should have gone to Japan to weigh in and adjust to the time zone. However, there is no news about his arrival in Japan or even his whereabouts.
Well, everything is finally resolved in the last chapter because Rosario finally arrives and we also get an explanation as to why he is missing. Everyone is looking forward to the match between Mashiba and Rosario, and we will know more about it in Hajime no Ippo Chapter 1447.
Fans were looking forward to seeing what Rosario would become, but he completely defied everyone’s expectations. Marcus is suddenly sleepy and clumsy despite his menacing appearance. It was even funnier when he revealed that he was missing because he was locked up in prison.
Somehow, he got involved with a crazy person and had to pull out a gun to defend himself, which got him into a lot of trouble. Hopefully the match will go well in the future and we’ll get to see some action between Mashiba and Rosario in the next few chapters.
Hajime no Ippo is a highly rated sports and drama manga series written by Morikawa Jyoji, which began publication in 1989. The story mainly deals with our main character Ippo and his journey to becoming a his boxing champion. The manga was also adapted into an anime, which further increased the popularity of this already beloved series.
MC is a normal high school boy, also a victim of bullying, but his life changed completely when he was introduced to the world of boxing. In this article, we will talk about Hajime no Ippo Chapter 1447 release date, recap what has happened in the story so far, and where you can read the manga.
In the previous chapter of Hajime no Ippo, the atmosphere at the gym was quite gloomy because of the news they received. Mashiba’s world title match against Marcus Rosario is two weeks away but there is still no news on Rosario’s whereabouts. Normally, he should have gone to Japan already.
Competitors typically arrive at a few soft spots before the match begins adjusting to the venue’s time zone and completing other formalities. However, no one knew where Rosario was and everyone wondered if Rosario would miss such an important match as it would surely strip him of the title.
Some gym members didn’t think it would be too bad if Rosario didn’t show up because Mashiba would win automatically in that case and he would have to fight someone lower for the world title. However, we can tell that Mashiba doesn’t want this kind of victory, especially after all his hard work.
He was looking forward to facing Marcus Rosario and fighting honestly for the title. Rosario’s failure to appear would ruin everything he had worked for and extinguish his dreams. Ippo also realized that and expressed anger and regret at the possibility of that happening.
However, an unexpected call comes in and we finally learn of Rosario’s whereabouts. Then, Marcus Rosario arrived at the airport just in time and someone came to pick him up. From their conversation, we realized that Rosario was missing because he was thrown in jail and bailing him out was a hassle.
Some guy pulled out a gun and Rosario pulled out his gun to defend himself. Well, it didn’t go so well because he was sent to jail for misconduct anyway, and that was also true when he had a match. Rosario isn’t good at nagging and he’s clearly the type of person who doesn’t like following too many rules.
