Just a few words from the guy who translated this entire series:

We should feel trolled, not just from this sudden ending but from the entire series.
The manga was good, almost amazing in the first 50 chapters or so. Moka was a good character and her interaction with Take and their life while they become champions as FELLOW boxers would was really promising.

Then the author began to troll the fandom.

First moka's retina detachment. How could have been the story interesting if there was a parallel career between the two of them? How would have been the story more interesting if she was on the same level of isamu? First you make people fantasize on such original subject and then you reduce her to a fat ass cheerleader, clearly incapable to stand on the same ground as him.
Then we have the second trolling. Watari. Great athlete and a champion he became a delinquent but he still had the abilities and could find redemption. Then here he goes with heart problems. Why did the author build up such a good and promising character to kill the premises in that way? Ah, he can continue to fight. Yes but we already know that he will not pose a threat to Take or the other high tier fighters.
third: isamu going to the seidoukan. First you build up the hype, people began to think "cool isamu will go to a place where there are strong guys like tsurugi and fight boxing for real". Then you troll isamu and the fandom by making his father go bankrupt destroying any hope and wasting the story developed in the last 10-20 chapters.
fourth: this is a boxing manga. Since the moment Moka had that retina detachment to the next match how many chapters did pass? 30? 40? And in the meantime? Romance and trolling. Romance could be good, but it is not supposed to be the main theme and trolling makes people angry and disinterested.

Basically the author lost momentum after the first 50 chapters, made the fans angry and lost he possibility to recuperate, and this is also reflected in the weekly rankings if you have the chance to take a look. First chapters were all ranked high and often in the top 3, and the last ones were low.
He tried to recuperate. Around chapter 100, with the introduction of the 4 heavenly dim-wits and their retarded super moves. It felt like a shonen boxing manga for a change. But it was too late. People lost interest and the new pace did not make things better. So probably the editors told him to wrap up the things after the summer camp arc and begin a new series because this one was not destined to success because the errors committed between chapters 50-100.

I think he will try with another manga in the near future, by also exploiting the ideas and situations he couldn't implement in this manga. If it will be a sport manga, I will probably translate it, if I find the sport interesting and hoping that he doesn't troll the fandom once again.

wata: ok then, we will go to the bus stop first.\\
moka: yeah, we will be there soon.\\
moka: let’s go, take-kun. We have already lost the bus.\\
take: ok.\\
moka: what’s wrong?\\ why are you so down even if you have won?\\
take: who knows…\\
take: I feel like spacing out now that I’m not under stress anymore.\\
take: furthermore it was a close match…\\
take: at the end my punch landed in a good spot only because of a little difference in our stances.\\
take: if tsurugi continued to run away like that, the referee would have given the victory to him.\\
take: tsurugi is incredible after all…\\
take: considering his attitude he will become even more dangerous in the future.\\
take: I have the feeling that I am nothing more than a temporary champion right now.\\
moka: it is not like that.\\
moka: you will be alright, because you are showing humility.\\
moka: you won against tsurugi!\\
moka: right now you are the national champion of the bantam class without any doubt.\\ you should be proud!\\
moka: I will make a even more tough training menu for you from now on!!\\
moka: but I will let you go for today so enjoy it, you devil’s advocate!\\
moka: that’s right…\\
moka: do you remember about that?\\
moka: you said that you wanted to say something to me…\\
moka: in the case you would won the match. What was that?\\
take: eh…!?\\
moka: what where you talking about?\\ I bugged me since that day.\\
take: hum~~~ eh?\\ did I say something like that?\\
take: I don’t really remember…\\
moka: heh, fine then.\\
take: m-moka!!\\
take: I remembered…\\
take: but… I will “confess” it only when I will become the world champion after all.\\
take: to the person (girl) most important to me.\\
moka: I see~~~\\
moka: in that case you should become champion no matter what.\\ and I will not surrender until you reach that point.\\
side text: as a boxer and as patterns, their buyuuden(heroic saga) continues to go forward…\\
