This story takes places AFTER Kimura vs. Mashiba, not after Ippo vs. Sendo in the original manga.

As you know, Sanada is a former Jr. Featherweight champion. What is omitted from the anime is who gets to fight for the vacated title. It was Ippo's former opponents from the East Japan rookie tournament, Kobashi Kenta and Hayami Ryuuichi. After that, Ippo and Sanada first meet outside the Kourakuen Hall. In the anime, they first meet in the weigh-in.

Manga-anime change: When Sanada and his coach's daughter play video games. In the anime, it's an X-Box while in the manga it's a Sega Saturn.

Ippo's title defenese takes place 5 months after he beats Sendo

Anime-manga change: In the movie, Miyata is ranked 3rd in the OPBF. However in the manga he is ranked 1st already and his OPBF title match takes place 3 weeks after Ippo's fight with Sanada.
