A recent statement from the creator regarding the series
Manga creator George Morikawa appeared on an Abema TV program on March 5, and when asked a question about possibly running out of material for his Hajime no Ippo boxing manga, Morikawa responded "when I think about the [story] material, I've probably only covered about half of it." He jokingly added that he is not planning to take another 30 years to get through the rest of the story, stating that it would be really troublesome.
Morikawa also talked about the story development last year of Ippo's retirement from professional boxing. In the story, Ippo shows symptoms of "chronic traumatic encephalopathy" (CTE), and he decides to retire. He currently serves as a trainer for other boxers.
