I agree with you. haha. itagaki is getting in my nerves. he's overconfindent. :)
Also he's getting a bit creepy with all the things he does to Ippo behind his back, like trying to choke him... (Not to mention his obsession with Kumi)
To lose this fight, could help him being cured from his obsession to "beat" Ippo and his overconfidence. Itagaki has turned into a very unlikable character, I really hope the manga-ka realizes this and changes it - with losing this fight! I really want Saeki to win, he's fighting to prove his point, he's the hardworking "Ippo" in this fight who goes against the genius. When he was thinking about the "old model vs new model" it only made me want to see him win more an more. D:
If Itagaki really wants to outduel Ippo (which I'm sure is far down in his mind right now), then now's his golden chance. He's either going to be better off for this, or Saeki is gonna blow him out of the water in the very next round.
