At that moment, the sound of footsteps could be heard.
An elderly man wearing a black robe walked toward the arena. With every step he took, the ground trembled. The rumbling of the earth caused weaker martial artists to stagger backward and fall.
As Delainey possessed weaker strength, she would have collapsed to the ground if not for Jackson holding on to her.
“Who is that?”
“What a powerful aura…”
“He must be someone powerful!”
Everyone was stunned upon seeing the man.
It was Sergio, one of the most powerful individuals of the Blood Race.
Though he moved rather slowly to the mortal eye, his speed was in fact extraordinary. In the blink of an eye, he appeared before James and slowly removed his hat.
Looking at James, he beckoned him. “Defeat me and you’ll be the most powerful man in the world. Defeat me and you’ll obtain the dragon’s blood and information on the dragon’s whereabouts.”
In the blink of an eye, James appeared on the battlefield. Sergio followed close behind.
The two stood in the middle of the rubble.
The aura Sergio exuded was so powerful that his surroundings were affected. Dust and debris began swirling in the air.
Who is this?
Thomas’ expression was grim.
Sergio’s aura was so powerful that even Thomas was intimidated.
James could also sense the aura Sergio exuded. Though Sergio’s strength was comparable to his, he was unafraid. Instead, he looked forward to the coming battle. He did not exert his full force during his battle with the Spirit Master, so he wondered how strong he could be if he went all-out.
“Where’s your sword?” James asked.
Sergio said coldly. “I don’t need a sword to defeat you.”
“Oh?” A grin crept up on James’ face, and he said, “That’s great…”
Then, he tossed the Primordial Dragon Blade in his hand aside, which landed flawlessly on a rock.
James taunted, “Come at me!”
The moment he finished his sentence, Sergio struck. At lightning speed, he appeared before James and clenched his fists, smashing at James’ head.
Undaunted, James simply raised his arm to block his attack,
Powerful energy swept through the arena.
The ground beneath James instantly exploded.
James could feel his body sinking deeper into the ground. Even his feet were on the verge of buckling under the terrifying pressure. At that moment, the Blood Energy inside his body churned, and his True Energy turned violent.
The moment they exchanged blows, James immediately knew how powerful his opponent was. Sergio’s strength was definitely on par with his.
At that moment, Sergio pulled back his fists and struck James’ chest.
James hurriedly deflected the attack.
The fists collided, and two powerful True Energy clashed. Both James and Sergio staggered backward.
Sergio went on the offensive once more while James began using the Blithe Fist of Abomination.
A fierce battle ensued, and the two were on equal footing. Everyone held their breaths as they watched the battle intently.
Upon seeing James’ martial art, Donovan Blithe could not help but be stunned.
I never expected him to master the Blithe Fist of Abomination in just a little over a year…
