"Yamcha versus Shen" (ヤムチャ対シェン, Yamucha Tai Shen; Viz "Yamcha vs. Shen") is the one hundred seventy-fourth chapter of the Dragon Ball manga.
The next match is Yamcha vs Shen, an elderly gentlemen who many people doubt can actually fight. While the others are confident Yamcha will with, both Yajirobe and Gokū are suspicious. As the fight commences, Shen manages to trip, landing a blow on Yamcha, and ducking to avoid a blow, pulling up in time to slam his head into Yamcha's groin. These repeated accidents embarrass Yamcha, but entertain the crowd.
Shen eventually drops the façade, telling Yamcha he will fight seriously. True to this, he lands a quick and crushing blow against Yamcha. Shen lectures Yamcha on judging him by his appearance, as this was the mistake he made, and is only lecturing Yamcha because the man has a lot of talent. Yamcha apologizes for his mistakes, but as he doesn't like Shen's attitude, claims he will win. Shen, however, states that it is he who must win, and continues to treat the battle like a training session.
