Suggested by Sonic Look, Dan can throw a punch but he’s certainly no expert fighter. I wouldn’t expect him to be able to tangle with Kurogane for very long before he gets winded and knocked out of the fight. So his best bet would be to land some kind of sneak attack and that isn’t going to work since Kurogane’s guard is always up. Ultimately that means that Dan will be quite doomed here. Kurogane wins.
