"These days, I’ve been slacking off on exercise, always doing lazy things like using the car or motorbike even on outings right in the neighborhood. As a result, my stomach has started to bulge out. Thinking, “I’ll be in trouble if it goes on like this!”, I decided I’d at least try and ride my bike to shape up. But my eyes always wander over to the women walking along the street, and I end up riding at a snail’s pace. To be frank, it doesn’t really amount to “exercise”."


Jackie Chun defeats Yamcha without a problem. Surprised by Goku’s strength, Giran gives up. Kuririn falls to Jackie’s superior strength. Goku miraculously survives Namu’s Tenkū Pekeji-Ken to take the win. Jackie Chun and Goku begin their epic battle to decide the championship.
