Tsubasa taunts Kyoya

Two bladers take the stage, Tsubasa expresses his excitement to face Kyoya while Kyoya iterates that it doesn't matter who he faces and that he'll win all the same. They launch into the stadium and immediately trade blow for blow as they battle for the center of the stadium.

Eagle begins to take control of the match as it pushes Leone to outside of the stadium, Leone counters with a fierce attack but Eagle uses it as momentum to fly high above the stadium.

Once in the air Tsubasa activates one of Eagle's signature moves, Smashing Claw but is quickly countered by a signature move of Kyoya's, Lion Gale Force Wall. Kyoya's attack slings Eagle to the outside of the stadium giving Leone the upper hand, Kyoya tells Tsubasa he knows all of his moves and Tsubasa counters by telling him the same, surprising Kyoya. Tsubasa uses his special move, Counter Stance in order to separate Kyoya's Lion Gale Force wall and retake his momentum but surprisingly Leone itself is unfaced as it holds its ground against eagle.
