拍胸脯->炫耀自己的本身有多大、能力有多强->喻指双方不甘示弱、你追我赶。

If you think you know already, then there is no need to ask.

The fact that you asked showed you had some doubt.

In this case there's no context included, so it is not that great to put 不甘示弱 in a first sentence.

That, btw, is not what the Chinese words 不甘示弱 mean.  It is not the same as chest-beating.
