Rookie King Tournament: First Rounder Arc


Takada fighting Miyata.

Takada partook in the East Japan Rookie King Tournament and won the preliminary round against Misawa Kyōsuke. Takada then had his second match of the tournament against Miyata Ichirō from the Kawahara Boxing Gym.

When the match began, Takada noticed Miyata was not using his usual footwork. Takada pushed his shoulder into Miyata to prevent him from dodging, however Miyata did the same. Takada and Miyata went on an in-fighting battle until Takada clinched after losing the brawl. The clinch broke and Takada began to hit Miyata's guard until Takada was hit with a counter and fell down. Since Takada was unconscious, he lost the match, losing the tournament.

Takada later retired at an unknown date.
