"Evenly Matched!!" (実力伯仲!!, Jitsuryoku Hakuchū!!; Viz "Tenshinhan vs. Jackie Chun") is the one hundred twenty-third chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.


Tenshinhan and Jackie Chun step into the ring. Kuririn is relatively certain that Jackie will prevail, however, Goku isn't as confident. Goku believes Tenshinhan is very strong, and that either competitor could win the match. As the match plays out, Goku's suspicions seem correct; Jackie Chun and Tenshinhan seem evenly matched. Jackie Chun decides to use the Afterimage Fist as a diversion, however, Tenshinhan's third eye seems to allow him to perceive the location of the real body, allowing him to counterattack. 

The fierce match continues, with Tenshinhan and Jackie Chun matching each other blow for blow. Tenshinhan is surprised, noting that Jackie Chun's power surpasses that of Tsuru Sennin, his own teacher. Jackie Chun himself is surprised by the potential of the new generation.
