“A reliable source reveals that Rheasian fighter Anderson will be the champion of this year’s martial arts cup!”
“Anderson Larson is already one step away from the invincibilis state, and if there’s no mishap, the champion of this year’s martial arts cup will go to Rheasia!”
Posts about the title match of the day were trending in all the major online forums that only fighters had access to.
Anderson was the hot topic of discussion on the champion of this year’s martial arts cup.
Even the biggest dealer in the betting world placed his bet on Anderson and assumed that the latter stood a 90% chance of becoming the champion. Hence, the payout on Anderson was rather low.
On the other hand, the second major topic of discussion next to Anderson was Romel becoming the champion.
People had already begun to recognize him after he entered a match for the second time. They recognized him as the super killer Romel who had vanished two years ago.
His glorious return this time signified that there were high hopes of him being the champion.
The fighters all over the world were boiling over with excitement. In fact, quite a number of fighters even planned their itinerary to travel to Rheasia in advance so that they could watch the grand match in person!
Posts about Anderson and the other seven perfect-class master fighters filled the major websites with detailed, comprehensive information about them. It could be said that the event was the source of elation among the fighters.
Anderson got up very early to discover that there were already numerous people waiting for him at his door when he walked out of the room. Those were all supporters who were there to cheer him on.
“Look, Sergeant Larson is out!”
As soon as he got out, his presence immediately drew the attention of everyone else. They surrounded him in succession.
Anderson could only grin forcefully at the sight of the crowd. He was having a hard time getting used to the grandiosity.
It was obviously Anderson who was going to take part in the match today yet these people were more excited and nervous than him.
In fact, quite a number of people appeared fatigued and one could tell at one glance that they did not sleep well last night.
‘It’s a little too much, isn’t it?’ Anderson let out a forced chuckle in his heart.
Someone immediately shouted aloud, “You must do your best, Sergeant Larson! We are very optimistic about your victory!”
“That’s right, Sergeant Larson. You must fight your way for Rheasia’s glory!”
“Do your best and beat those opponents to pieces, Sergeant Larson! Show them our country’s power and prestige! All the best!”
“I believe that Sergeant Larson will certainly be able to beat those lads into a pulp!”
“I love you, Sergeant Larson! I want to have your babies!”
Even though Anderson felt rather helpless to see the enthusiasm of his countrymen, he was very touched in his heart. He could feel that he was not alone at this very moment and that there were more people supporting him in this match.
He gave them a smile and made a hand gesture by lowering his raised hand.
Noticing his action, the people immediately quieted down to show their respect and admiration for him.
