The blow from the battle was too much for the crowd to withstand. It must be over, right? Who could withstand such a terrifying punch?
At the moment of the explosion, they saw it clearly. Declan’s punch had struck Dustin. Even a person made of iron would surely have been obliterated by a semi-grandmaster’s punch.
When the dust settled, all eyes were firmly fixed on the battlefield. However, the scene that greeted them left them dumbfounded.
In the center of the battle ring, Dustin was standing perfectly still. He hadn’t dodged nor defended against the attack, allowing Declan’s punch to strike his chest.
His feet seemed rooted in place, and he showed no sign of being pushed back. The only evidence of the impact was the hollow ground around him that was surrounded by cracks.
“H-How is that even possible?”
The crowd couldn’t hide their disbelief as they looked at unharmed Dustin. Declan had delivered a full-powered special technique, yet Dustin blocked it with his body?
What kind of monster was he?
“My goodness! Is this guy made of steel or something?” Daphne exclaimed, her eyes wide with disbelief.
Declan was a semi-grandmaster who could easily shatter stone and metal with just a single punch. However, that same powerful punch that landed on Dustin’s body left not a single scratch.
It was truly mind-blowing!
“Who exactly is this guy?” Dante was bewildered. He had assumed Declan would secure an easy win, but it didn’t seem to go as he expected.
“What?” Griffin frowned. Although he remained silent, he couldn’t hide the surprise in his eyes. Dustin’s defense was nothing short of incredible if he could withstand a punch from a semi-grandmaster.
“Interesting.” Simon stroked his beard, looking at Dustin with interest. Meanwhile, Declan was in a state of shock. His fist was still firmly pressed against Dustin’s chest. He never could have anticipated such an unexpected turn of events.
He had put everything into that punch, intending to win the match with it. However, he was shocked to realize that his powerful strike seemed to dissipate without a trace and did no harm upon contact with Dustin’s chest.
The only explanation for this situation was that Dustin’s strength greatly surpassed his own, possibly reaching the level of a grandmaster.
“Are you done? Now, it’s my turn,” Dustin said with a faint smile. He then landed a gentle palm strike on Declan’s chest.
The strike didn’t appear to carry any force. But upon coming into contact with Declan, he was sent flying like he had been hit by a speeding train. With a loud thud, he crashed onto the ground several meters away and lost consciousness.
The entire dojo fell silent, stunned at the scene they just witnessed. The previously confident Fallon disciples were dumbstruck, unable to believe it.
The top prodigy of the Fallons, who was also a semi-grandmaster, was defeated just like that. And all it took was just a single effortless palm strike from Dustin.
It was absolutely ridiculous!
