BEGA announce in the press the match between Yuri and Garland and the stadium is filled with spectators in a matter of minutes, much to everyone's surprise. Even Blader DJ is rushed to the stadium. Rei arrives with Mystel and both watch from afar. The battle starts and Garland just lets Yuri attack so that he runs out of energy. Mid-battle, Yuri asks Garland why such a talented beyblader like him decided to join BEGA. Garland then explains he is a member of the Siebald family, the youngest of six children who aim to be the number one in their sports. His siblings have already achieved success in baseball, football, golf, tennis and Formula 1, and he wants to be the number one beyblader. When it becomes clear that Yuri will never understand his reasons, Garland decides to finish the battle. Yuri eventually takes Garland down with his Novae Rog attack (a scene with Garland sent flying was cut from the English dub and the versions based on it. Some blood dripping from his mouth was also digitally removed). As the battle rages on, the spectators start to get bored since Yuri has lost his energy and Boris is worried that he will fail to entertain the public. When Garland's Apollon knocks Wolborg out of the stadium, bars rise up out of the floor and keep it in the dish. Boris than announces that the battle will only end if one of the beyblades stop spinning. Meanwhile, Kai is seen in front of BEGA's building. As the battle continues, Garland aggressively beats Yuri, weakening him (some scenes of Yuri getting hurt were cut from the English dub and the versions based on it). Kai arrives at a balcony and Hiro appears later to talk to him about BEGA. When Takao and the others realize Yuri can get hurt, Takao demands Boris to end the fight. Boris says he has taken notes on Takao's complaints and signals to Garland, giving him a thumbs up for the end of the match. Garland then launches his special attack Radiant Thunder and knocks Yuri meters away, damaging the stadium. Yuri uses his last amounts of energy to reveal in Takao's arms that the Barthez Batallion was actually BEGA's exhibition team that went wrong after Miguel and his friends realized they should not blindly obey their ruthless coach. Enraged, Takao yells out at Boris telling him his whole BEGA outfit is bogus and he challenges the shadowy figure to a battle. Boris accepts the challenges and announces that if BEGA loses, he will dissolve it. Rei shows up and joins his former team mate. Kai also appears, but walks right by Takao to join BEGA, leaving the World Champion shocked and speechless.
