The dinner party had only been going for a short while, but the situation was already so heated. One could see the visitors could not bear the sight of Insurgent Trifecta.
Zayn furrowed his brows. He was a little confused. If the Martial Arts Cup was so important, why had their superior assigned Insurgent Trifecta to manage the event?
Since Insurgent Trifecta was given the task, why did the superior send a group of their detractors to work with them? Was that not a clear sign of the superior trying to ruin the Martial Arts Cup?
Ten minutes earlier…
A boorish voice came from the dinner party, saying in a provocative tone, “I heard that the instructors from Insurgent Trifecta are all very skilled fighters and have rendered plenty of meritorious services to the country.”
“By coincidence, I’m trained in martial arts too. I’d like to challenge the instructors of Insurgent Trifecta to a fight.”
The man paused for a moment before continuing, “I wonder if you have the courage to accept the challenge?”
The voice was so strong that Zayn only needed to listen briefly to know the speaker was a master fighter at least at Tier 4. Moreover, he was in his peak condition.
All of Insurgent Trifecta combined, including Joe himself, was still no match for this man.
A while passed after his voice died away, yet no one accepted the challenge. He immediately ridiculed them by saying, “Hah-hah-hah! Your organization is so good at boasting, yet no one has the courage to accept my challenge?”
“That can’t be right, can it? You’re the organizer of the Martial Arts Cup this year. With such cowardice, will you be capable of standing your ground?”
One of his compatriots yelled out, “It’s fine if you dishonor Insurgent Trifecta, but if you were to disgrace us, can you afford to shoulder such a responsibility?!”
“Stop being so conceited!”
“Watch your tone! How dare you ridicule Insurgent Trifecta?!”
His remarks had so infuriated many of the organization’s leadership that they began to scold him angrily.
Meanwhile, a loud, resonant voice spoke up. It was Dick.
“That’s enough. Why are you being so wildly arrogant? All of this just to pick a fight! I shall accept the challenge! However, I’m just going to put this out there. There’s no controlling a fight, so I won’t bear the responsibility if I injure you!”
“Hah-hah-hah, Dick. You have the gall to boast so shamelessly? You must be dreaming when you claim that you can hurt me in a fight! Not that I’m looking down on you, but I can wipe you out with just one hand.”
A middle-aged man with a burly figure stepped forward from the crowd of Yando City’s officers. He had a crew-cut and his eyes were brimming with vigor.
His temples were bulging, and one could tell at one glance that he was a highly skilled fighter. He stared at Dick in contempt.
The look he gave showed his loathing. This was Dick’s nemesis and his name was Axton Lawrence.
Dick stepped forward as well, grunting loudly as he said, “You’re so presumptuous. I’d like to see if you’re actually capable of wiping me out with one hand!”
Sensing Axton’s strength, Joe shot a look at Dick, hoping to tell him not to act too impulsively.
Dick resolutely shook his head at Joe, showing that he could not put up with such rude behavior anymore.
“Go ahead.” Dick’s fighting spirit was growing exponentially and his eyes glowed with a terrifying glint.
Axton did not interrupt Dick, but continued glaring furiously all this time. He thought little of the man.
At last, Dick brazenly made a move when his fighting spirit reached its peak.
