Text: I was almost down an eye when Round Five started. It had taken a beating over the course of the fight and was nearly swollen shut. Lucky for me, Ivana’s eye was swollen as well. Ivana tried to take advantage of my battle damage by circle into my blind spot. I kept her efforts in check with biting jabs, but when he stopped circling, and came straight at me, she caught me with a powerful hook that snapped my head. She reloaded quickly and the combination spilled me to the canvas for the second time this bout. I was much slower to rise this time. By the time I caught my breath and got to my feet, the referee had made it to eight. Ivana, yet again, was eager to finish me off, so she traded power for accuracy with the bombing hooks that followed. I ducked that set me up for a perfect counter and banged a left hook into her ribs that ejected her mouth piece in a glistening stream of saliva. Hunched over and coughing, the blistering right uppercut that followed, spun her on her heels and put her on the canvas.She was up by the count of eight and I harrassed her quickly when we were called to box. I wasn’t as reckless as Ivana had been and she covered up, letting my mitts smack against hers aggressively until the bell rang.
