Something tells me Luffy won't (just seems awfully set up for him to now fight Kaido for 30 chapters), but I can 100% see Zoro and Sanji "losing" this chapter with hints to their powerups.

Reason for this is they should earn that level of growth Luffy achieved with his fight with Katakuri. Luffy lost to Kata technically at first, then came back and won. It's on fair that these 2 fights last somewhat longer than normal battles. They shouldn't take 2 chapters. If Oda dedicates this chap to them fighting and potentially on the floor by the end, that's hype for the calamities and like 2.5 chapters dedicated to these battles (half of 1022, most of 1023, 6 pages of of 1027, all of 1028) and no signs of it ending yet. Plus, King/Queen/Zoro/Sanji were fighting earlier than this, so it's impressive how much Oda dedicates to them

yea i think cp0 mentioned that with the beast pirates u cant just take kaido out u have to take everyone out. so what if luffy wins and then zoro and sanji lose and with that loss the all stars wreck everything act 3 ends in failure.

take what i say with a grain of salt pls hahaha i dont want to see my alerts full of haters
