He ended up being stabbed by Mikunino when he turned his back on him to fight Kiichi. However he proved strong enough to continue fighting. While Yoshiki did technically defeat Kiichi he couldn’t finishes him off due to his injuries and the match was declared a draw. Kiichi took him to the hospital after he passed out due while trying to continue to fight. Kiichi donated his blood during the operation.

Finally remembering who he was during the match Yoshiki attempted to defeat him using just pro wrestling moves. However Seiya surprised the crowd by saying that pro wrestling moves don’t work in a real fight.


Yoshiki eventually left for India after saying that guys fighting tigers are better than guys fighting humans.
