Baki Hanma Season 2 Episode 9 began with the two giants getting ready to fight. Pickle is deadly serious and realizes that his current opponent is stronger than Retsu and Katsumi. As he takes his fighting pose, Jack throws a sudden right which surprises Pickle.

Pickle manages to rip apart the face of Jack and swallows the meat. Jack is enraged and throws a full punch to Pickle’s jaw which sends him flying. Jack feels that something is off and realizes that the primitive man has an exceptional skeleton structure.
Baki rushes to the arena along with Retsu Kaioh, but he’s too late. Pickle takes his quadruped fighting pose and rushes toward Jack, who easily throws him away using his muscles. The only reason Jack could do this is because of the doping, steroids, and drugs he did.
For a moment, Jack overpowers Pickle and bites his ear off. Pickle is enraged by the pain and in a fit of rage, he knocks out Jack with a barrage of punches. He refuses to eat Pickle, as he gives him an aura similar to a wasp. There is only one thing that Pickle is scared of, and it’s the wasp. Pickle was right, like the wasp, Jack to had a counter ready to attack Pickle with, even tho he was unconscious.
