Yusuke Oda

A handsome boxer with an admittedly unimpressive record of 3-3-0 (3 KOs), Oda is Makunouchi Ippo's first opponent in the professional ring. Oda boasts a crushing right straight that easily knocked out his first few opponents; but it was soon revealed, to Coach Mikami's dismay, that he hated to train. Instead, Oda often chose to spend time with his girlfriend – the coach's daughter, Reiko.
