WIBF Junior Lightweight European Title
10-2 Minute Rounds
TRIX "Fitness Queen" FISHER
(Germany) - Champion
(Spain) - Challenger
Greetings Ladies and Gentleman! Welcome to the much anticipated World International Boxing Federation Junior European Lightweight
Championship. My name is Griffy and I will offer the colour commentary for the BBC fight fans for this evening’s program.
let’s look at the side by side prepared by our able staff and now
appearing on your screen:
As you can see the combatants in tonight title clash are well matched. The entrance music is playing and the challenger is entering
the arena. As soon as the fans saw Miranda enter the arena, they erupted with applause. She looked focused and confident as she strode
gracefully down the aisle to the ring.
Trix entering from the opposite side of the ring cast an intimidating glare toward her opponent. She wore her WIBF Championship belt
with the elegance of a queen.
While they received their instructions at centre ring Miranda looked down toward the floor while Trix attempted to engage her in a stare
down. When directed to do so, the two women extended their gloved fists for the traditional handshake.
At the bell for round one, both women advanced toward their opponent swiftly. The red-haired boxer started the offence with a stiff
left jab that was caught in the right palm of Miranda’s glove.
Throughout the opening period, Trix assumed the role of aggressor; using strong punches to knock Miranda back toward the ring ropes.
She fired a powerful right hand punch that split the gloves of her foe blasting Miranda’s head painfully to the side.
Miranda charged across the ring on the attack as round two started. Firing several lead jabs to create an opening through Trix’s defence.
When she saw the opportunity she rifled a ram rod straight right jab that crushed the nose of the red-head.
Ms Morales continued to press her attack against Trix in the second session. Her powerful right hand blows broke through the champ’s
gloved defence exploding against her head with stunning impact. How much more of this pounding could she take?
"The Fitness Queen" displayed her fighter’s heart when she opened round three with a blistering bombardment of potent haymakers.
Debilitating hooks to the body of the challenger had her doubling over in pain. It was the champ’s opportunity to pay back her adversary
for the abuse she suffered in round two.
The powerful red-head responded quickly when Miranda telegraphed an arching right cross. Stepping inside the swing, she fired
a rocket-like left uppercut that exploded against the challenger’s jaw first. Miranda was shaken by that powerful strike. Before she could
recover Trix fired a salvo of short-armed punches to her head and body. Ms Morales’ face was bruised and swollen from the hurtful blows
of the champ.
In round four, the battle grew even more intense. Ms Fischer continued to press her advantage working her hooks and inside attacks
to pummel the brunette back toward the ropes.
Just as it looked like the champ had established control, Miranda came flurrying back with her own powerful offence. Her arsenal of hooks
and assorted combinations sent the "Fitness Queen" reeling backward. So it went throughout the fourth stanza, back and forth
the momentum swung in a round that was too close to call.
Early in the fifth round Trix attacked her rival from a southpaw stance. Using her right jabs, hooks and crosses she peppered the face
of her foe from unfamiliar angles. Miranda was struggling to defend against this new offensive strategy.
As the two damsels were battling near the end of the fifth frame, twin left hooks launched by each fighter arrived at the same time.
Both blows landed powerfully to their face. Each woman’s head jerked up and back as they were temporarily frozen in shock.
It nearly caused a double knockdown and was a thrilling finish to this hard fought round.
The Spanish boxer employed a new offensive tactic as the battle resumed in round six. Ducking low, she powered lefts and rights
in the ribs and abdomen of the black-clad champ. Most of Trix’s punches sailed harmlessly over the head of her assailant as she suffered
the painful impact of these gut busters.
As she pounded the champ off-balance, she stepped forward with inside uppercuts that jacked her chin up in the air. That opened up
further targets for short straight power shots to the head or bosom of the shell-shocked red head. Ms Fischer’s face was swollen and
she cringed in pain from the assault of her adversary.
Round seven quickly became a chess game of attacks and counter-attacks. When Miranda lowered her arm to attack the torso
of the "Fitness Queen", Trix whipped short quick hooks and overhand punches over the lowered limb. Her hammering left hooks
to the head were particularly effective in the early moments of the round.
Later in the session Ms Morales started to anticipate the hooks and crossing blows from her antagonist. Timing her a attacker’s swing,
she moved inside the punch to deliver her shorter, quicker hooks before the champion could defend herself.
Round eight was a physically tiring stanza. From the start, the women moved into close range to continue their battle. There was more
pushing and grappling between the two powerful scrappers as they attempted to impose their will upon their rival. The last two rounds
would call on both women pull forth every resource within them to claim the victory. It would become a battle of will and determination.
As the Hooters Round Card girl displayed the sign for the coming ninth round, the fighters prepared themselves for the final round.
Sitting attentively in her corner, Trix received refreshment and words of advice from her trainer as she prepared to come out for the next
to last round of this very tough match.
Round nine appeared to be a crucial turning point in this championship rumble. Ms Fischer raised the level of her aggression to a higher
plain. She led off with machine-gun quick leading jabs. Doubling or tripling her jabs, hammered her brunette off-balance and opened
avenues of attack for her tagalong power shots. Miranda could not retaliate with meaningful counters.
Corralled in a neutral corner near round’s end, Miranda wrapped her arms desperately around her assailant’s head.
It was a tactic of desperation by the challenger who was being beaten down. She held on tight, waiting for the referee to separate them
so she could gain her freedom from this entrapment.
With just two-minutes remaining in this championship contest, the defending champion came out determined to knock her opponent out.
She sensed that she was the stronger of the two. After the traditional glove tap, Trix opened fired with a fusillade of hammering lefts
Repeatedly she pounded her opponent with every punch in her extensive repertoire but Miranda refused to fall down. Punches rained in
on the defiant challengers from all directions. The Spanish boxer stumbled and wobbled, but miraculously stayed on her feet until the final
bell sounded. At the end, she walked unsteadily back to her corner.
The fighters stood nervously awaiting the official decision of the judges. When the official result was announced the defending champion
Trix Fischer was the unanimous decision victory over a dazed and disappointed Miranda Morales who had fought gamely in a losing cause.
With her WIBF Championship Belt affixed around her trim waist the "Fitness Queen’s" gloved fist was raised in recognition of her
impressive victory. In joyful exuberance, the champion bounded to the nearest turnbuckle, stepped upon the lower strand and thrust
her red fists overhead in a victory salute as she accepted the accolade of her appreciative supporters. It was a memorial victory
for a deserving champion.
In acknowledgement of her courageous challenge, Trix called Miranda to centre ring to share the lime light. The two rugged competitors
for media and fans eager to record this memorable event. The
confrontation certainly lived up to its anticipated grandeur.
