Original Title in Japanese: Ashita no Joe 2
Joe is back in the center ring... to fight for world championship with honor and dignity.
We are proud to bring you the most powerful and exciting boxing story ever, THE CHAMPION. After fighting with his destined rival, Rikiishi, and knocking him dead in the ring, our hero Joe had stopped boxing.
Suddenly, however, he returns to his private coach, Danpei, wanting to start boxing again. Danpei tries to help Joe out of his misery by coaching him boxing again.
Unfortunately, Joe had become a lame boxer who finds it impossible to attack the opponents face, as he is consumed with guilt of having killed his rival before with his furious punch.
The many opponents that appear in front of Joe includes Carlos Libero from Brazil. Carlos reminds Joe of real friendship, lost since Rikiishis death. However, the same event repeats, and Joe loses a friend again after his fight with Carlos.
Finally, the world-renowned champion, Jose mendosa, waits for the young hero at the nadir of his fortune. It is time for Joe to make the legend of champions.
