On this episode, we visit Fussa, Tokyo, to meet American Frederick Roberts. While stationed at a local US air base, Frederick fought as a pro boxer and won the title of national champion in his country of adoption. Now retired, he runs a gym where he trains boxers, encouraging them to never give up. We accompany Frederick as he coaches promising fighter Suzuki Kensuke through a decisive bout. We also drop by a high school in Toyokawa City in Aichi Prefecture where Brazilian Rodrigo Igi teaches English.
