In the Hajime no Ippo 1236 chapter, we will observe that Ippo and Wano are heading for the roadwork at 5 am in the morning. The weather is very favourable and Ippo is extremely excited as it is a great day for fishing
While saying so he hopes that the customers today will have a successful fishing and he is shadow boxing
In the next moment, we see the entry of Taihei. He tries to imitate the shadow boxing done by Ippo.
Taihei asks Ippo, what kind of shadow boxing you were doing, I was not even able to locate your fist and being the Japan champion is truly amazing
Taihei says he found Ippo as the former Japan champion. He says while looking out for you, he asked several people for a man with a huge white dog. Then he found Ippo doing his roadwork early in the morning
Taihei says he was not aware when Ippo will come, so he was waiting here and it is the first time he woke up so early
Ippo thought in his mind that Taihei has come to take his revenge, so ignores him and ask him to go away. But Taihei pleads the Ippo to teach him boxing and making him his student
Once hearing this out, Ippo runs at full speed but Taihei tries to chase him
