First Step Arc
Prior to Makunouchi Ippo's match with Sanada Kazuki, Gotō helped explain to Ippo about what the "Hien" was by explaining what the aircraft with the same name was.
Later, in order to get Ippo to confess to Mashiba Kumi by Aoki Masaru, Kimura Tatsuya and Takamura Mamoru, Ippo only agreed to do it if they were able to beat him in an arm wrestling competition. Gotō took part in that arm wrestling competition, replacing Takamura.
When Kimura and Aoki got defeated, Takamura knocked out Gotō to take his place in the competition as he believed Gotō stood no chance.
