From his recent appearance at Anime Expo:

Interviewer: Do you know any thing about a third season of Hajime no Ippo [in which he plays the character Mamoru Takamura]?

RK: REALLY?! I didn't know about that, but I'll do my best.

Man and I was about to post a comment of excitement about this, that guy is seriously a dick.

I still have faith that we will see a new season eventually, it's a money maker after all and just looking at how they got a season two 6 years after season 1 makes one think that s3 is still possible.

Wow, that guy is fucking prick. Wasn't he the one who said straight after 2nd season that 3rd season was in production, they were working on it at that moment, making it look like it will be out soon? Stupid asshole.

keep in mind that it took nishimura forever to do the trigun movie. maybe it will be the same with hajime no ippo

It would have been awesome even if they released just an OVA in the mean time before the new season.
The side story about Kamogawa and Nekota in their young days is perfect for an OVA

No, it would be perfect for a movie, not ova. Ova is too short. And I am like 90% sure that they are going to release movie about that, and then god knows after how long they will follow up with the 3rd season. But I really, really hope that I am wrong and they will release third season straight away, or release a movie and then straight away, within a month start airing third season - this still could be reasonable, I hope. But I can't see that happening, releasing third season without a movie, knowing how it is in the manga.
