Gansaku Nanbu is shown as the coach of Junk Dog. He directs him to when to lose a fight. One evening Junk crashes his bike into Yukiko Shirato. Yukiko is the head of the Shirato Group, which handles the Megalonia tournament. Junk Dog picks a fight with his bodyguard Yuri. Yuri is also a top rank Megalo Boxer. The fight between the two is stopped by Yukiko, but they both meet at an underground ring. Yuri beats Junk in the fight and asks him to fight again in Megalonia.
