Ippo is asked about the match and he says he’s excited for it and thinks it will be a great fight. The discussion turns about Ippo’s retirement and he turns quiet.
Ippo and Data are walking back together.
Ippo asks Date, “What is needed to make a comeback?”

Date: “To invest yourself to the ring, you need passion.” He adds about how that passion went cold for him once.
