Baki Season 3 Episode 25, which is currently available on Netflix, featured a story of how legendary boxer Muhammad Ali met the strongest creature on Earth, Yujiro Hanma. A Japanese journalist came to visit Ali in his mansion where they spoke about the ups and downs of his boxing career.
The journalist was shocked when Ali mentioned the name Yujiro Hanma. It was revealed in the latest episode of Baki that Ali went to Japan on January 9, 1976, to engage in a mixed-match against Japanese pro-wrestler Antonio Igari. To avoid the media, Ali and his training buddies decided to do their roadwork at night. Ali was accompanied by five strong men who also made their own name in the world of fighting sports.
However, as they got far away from the gym, Ali realized that his comrades were missing one by one. He found out that all of them were taken out by Yujiro Hanma. When the Ogre appeared, Ali immediately sensed the enemy's incredible power and did a serious fighting pose. Baki Season 3 Episode 25 revealed that Ali wasn't just focused on boxing but in perfecting martial arts as well.
Unfortunately, despite going all out, Ali still proved to be no match for Yujiro. Though he knew that he's much stronger than the legendary boxer, Yujiro said that he has huge respect for Ali, especially for fighting for the underprivileged black people, the injured vets, and all the weak. Since their first encounter, Ali and Yujiro became good friends.
