The arena fell silent for a while.
Many participants who were originally confident couldn’t help but back down because this barbarian called Haus was too strong.
According to Rhodes’ strength theory, at least it is close to the level of a Rear Admiral, and he seems to be the strongest in terms of physical strength among all participants
As long as he can’t break his defense, Haus can blast his opponent.
“Is there anyone else who wants to be crushed?”
Haus stood in the field, his eyes swept across the four directions calmly, revealing his killing intent.
He was determined to get this devil fruit because it was a Zoan-type devil fruit.
As long as he gets this Devil Fruit, he has great confidence to join the Beast Pirates and get himself a good position.
Having been in the New World for so long, Haus knows very well that without a strong enough backer, it is difficult to survive in this chaotic sea, and he might get crushed by another big force someday.
The name of the madman of the beast pirates, Kaido, is known to the whole world, and it is naturally the most reassuring to sail under such a captain who protects his shortcomings.
Of course, the Whitebeard Pirates would do too, but he couldn’t find a way to join, so he had to settle for the next best thing.
Haus’ voice echoed in the empty arena, but no one responded for a long time.
“Is this the end of the game?”
“How is that possible?! There are still many participants, who haven’t fought yet, but they are still observing and don’t want to join in too early. There is no intermission between battles, so if you join too early you will only get tired later.”
People were talking a lot, and they couldn’t help but look at the higher platform.
Bell frowned slightly. Although Haus’ strength was good, the battle have just begun and he can’t end it so quickly, so he had to operate behind the scenes and let his own people take action.
At this time, a figure suddenly jumped inside the arena.
“Go back, I don’t want to kill you.”
He spoke lightly and indifferently.
In an instant, there was an uproar in the audience.
“I didn’t expect that Captain of the Silver Sword Pirates, would really take action! He is a powerful pirate with a reward of 190 million.”
“I heard that a few months ago, the Silver Sword Pirates suffered heavy losses from a great storm, and he lost his Vice Captain during that time. The captain, Leonard’s name has long been misplaced.”
“Tsk tsk, it seems that he intends to join the Beasts Pirates by winning this. Only the forces of the Yonko have enough capital and manpower to help him rebuild his crew.”
Everyone looked at Leonard, The Silver Sword Captain, with incomparable awe.
Haus’ expression also changed.
He obviously didn’t expect to encounter such a big enemy, but this Devil Fruit is his future, he can’t just let it go, and he won’t let it go!
Haus took his fighting stance.
“You do it.”
Leonard put one hand behind him and raised the other hand slightly.
When Haus saw this, he was furious.
Although the man in front of him was very famous, Haus was also the man who crashed everyone who stood in his way up until the moment, how can he be humiliated?
He roared angrily and slammed the ground with his feet, his figure was shot out like a bullet, his five fingers clenched into a fist covered with Haki, and he swung straight at Captain Silver Sword.
His punch looked as big as a mountain, causing an astonishing tearing sound.
Looking at the heavy punch, Leonard didn’t try to dodge or even draw his sword. When Haus’ fist got closer, he clenched his right hand tightly and punched out at the same time.
His movement made no sound, but it came first.
Only a “click” sound was heard.
The two fists collided, but Haus flew out like a straw, spewing a mouthful of blood into the air, and got smashed heavily on the ground in the distance.
He ended with one punch!
Haus, a pure master of physical strength, in the battle of strength, couldn’t match the strength of this swordsman, who didn’t even draw his blade!
As long as you’re not a fool, you can see the absolute difference between the two.
The audience was silent, and everyone showed the same expressions on their faces.
In their opinion, this game has already ended after this attack, and the result will never change no matter what Haus will do next.
“Do you still want to fight?”
Leonard lightly retracted his fists and stood with his hands behind his back.
Haus’ face was gloomy.
He had strong physical strength, so he won’t suffer much damage from a single punch.
However, the strength shown by Leonard’s punch was terrifying. Even if he can hold on for a little bit, once that guy draws his sword…
“I admit defeat.”
He lowered his head and left the stage sadly.
On the high platform, Buckley, from the Beast Pirates, saw this and ordered his men to go and recruit Haus.
Haus’ characteristics fit well with the style of the Beast Pirates, even more so than the Silver Sword Captain, Leonard.
However, this is an open competition, and he is not good at breaking the rules, so he can only recruit privately.
“I want to congratulate you, it seems you have recruited twice in a row.” Stussy covered her mouth and smiled, with a hint of natural charm in her voice.
Buckley also smiled when he heard this. He was stationed on this island solely for this reason, so when he met the right person, he would try to recruit him.
In fact, the Yonko are not so much a pirate group as they are warlord forces, separated from each other.
They also recruit subordinates, manage industries, divide spheres of influence, and even do secret research technology.
And this time.
Leonard stood indifferently in the field with a relaxed expression, he obviously didn’t think that anyone would dare to challenge him.
He looked at the Devil Fruit on the high platform with fiery eyes, and secretly clenched his fists.
Today, after encountering major setbacks, he will finally stand up again and change his fate.
“Rhod, it’s your turn to take action.”
Koala looked at the situation in the field and said in a low voice, “As long as you defeat Leonard, others should not dare to challenge you.”
Gion glanced at Koala in surprise, because judging from her tone, she was obviously confident that Rhodes could defeat Leonard.
Initially, she was considering whether to lower her requirements, because Leonard is really not something that a little guy of Rhodes’ age can handle.
But now it seems that the situation has changed a little bit. Rhodes seems to be better than she has imagined!
Rhode nodded lightly, and at a moment when everyone almost felt that the game was over, he suddenly jumped into the arena, and then walked to the center step by step, facing Leonard.
“Are you sure you want to challenge me?”
Looking at the young face in front of him, Leonard couldn’t help but show a look of doubt as he pointed at himself and said.
He’s the Captain of the Silver Sword Pirates after all!
He’s the man, who fought all the way to the new world, beheaded a Commodore, defeated a Rear Admiral, crossed countless dangerous places, sailed through storms, and was famous for his reputation.
He never expected that he would be challenged by someone so young, maybe even half his age.
“You got that right, I want to challenge you.”
Rhodes was expressionless.
Age has always been his handicap, and it is normal to be underestimated by others
In fact, even Rhodes’ body shape has remained at the level of a normal person, or maybe just a little bit taller than a normal person.
