From Dragon Ball Encyclopedia, the ''Dragon Ball'' wiki
Frieza's Boast is the fourteenth episode of the Frieza Saga and the eighty-ninth overall episode in the uncut version Dragon Ball Z series. The original Japanese title is "Furiza Kyofu no Sengen! Te wo Tsukawasu Omae wo Taosu" (フリーザ恐怖の宣言! 手を使わずお前を倒す). The episode first aired on May 8, 1991. It's original American air date was October 8, 1999.
Frieza, confident that he can defeat Goku, offers to fight him without using his hands. The two resume their fight, and even with Frieza not using his hands, the two are still evenly matched. Meanwhile, on Earth, Chi-Chi is desperate to get to Namek to retrieve Gohan, but Ox-King reminds her that the Capsule Corporation spaceship is still broken. Then, Dr. Brief shows up and tells them that the ship has been fixed. She and several others begin packing to leave for Namek, among them a reluctant Yajirobe.
Back on Namek, Goku and Frieza continue to battle furiously. Frieza begins to give Goku a hard time with his tail, but Goku turns the tables by grabbing Frieza's tail and using it against him. Elsewhere, Bulma cruises across Namek on her motorcycle with Captain Ginyu in the Namekian Frog's body, and remembers how she met him as the smartest among a colony of dumb frogs. Bulma and Ginyu stop somewhere to eat, and when Ginyu displays human-level IQ, Bulma straps a small machine on him to translate his croaks into speech. However, with his ability to speak again, Ginyu uses his Body Change technique and switches bodies with Bulma.
Frieza wraps his tail around Goku's neck to strangle him, but Goku resorts to drastic measures and bites it hard. With Frieza distracted by the pain, Goku pummels Frieza furiously until Frieza strikes back by punching Goku back. Goku gloats triumphantly for forcing Frieza to use his hands, while Frieza decides to stop playing around and fight properly.
