BEFORE: First weigh-in - Judd steps off the scales, heads directly to Jen, slaps her upside the head; veteran talents brawl just as hungry and tawdry as ingenues at their first casting call. "I don't know what her deal is," Jen growls at podium. "She's been in my face, showing me tude, since she came out of retirement, and I'm sick of it! People used to look up to Ashley Judd in this sport...she's changed, and not for the better!" Judd scowling in rebuttal, looking every inch the woman-on-a-mission. "I'll tell you what my 'deal' is," Judd glares. "A few years back - after dominating the lightweight division; beating the best fighters and taking titles...I took a bad beat against Theron and had to back off boxing full time to regroup. And in that time, who scooted into the limelight but Jennifer Garner. She's in the hall now - holds all these titles - and none of it, NONE of it, would have happened if I'd been active. So now, I'm giving Jen a little taste of what her life would have - SHOULD have been like. She basically had the in-ring career I should have had, and I'm making her pay for it!" Judd in pink bra and hipster panties; white gloves; black hair short. Jen in baby blue bra and hipster panties; white gloves; long brown hair loose/bangs. Staredown: Ashley frowning, popping a brazen double-bicep shot at Jen; Garner pursing lips in disgust, putting hands on hips in contempt.
During R1: Ashley: scowling; scraping left uppercuts against Jen's raised guard; swinging wide right to waist; digging hook to paunch. Jen covered up to receive shock, then answering: left uppercut grazing chin; shoving left flat to paunch; clubbing right to jugs; wide left hook 'round Judd's right elbow as Ashley's in tight earmuff. Jen covers up earmuff: Ashley opens up right/left/right to waist - trading hooks up top as Jen tries to time the receipt. Back and forth, savage, thudding hammer and tongs...both strong legged-beauties dug in and slammin' away brawny. Down the stretch, Jen in rigid earmuff - PULVERIZING lefts and rights on her biceps backs her into ropes. Judd cleans up strong - hooking the waist; pushing off brawny; clobbering Jen up top as Garner rides out the clock. Bell: Ashley scowling, making "title belt" gesture at her waist: Jen non-plussed, glaring as ref moves in.
R2: Ashley digging in: hooks for Jen's tummy and tits; clouting right hands to ear/jaw close-in; brawny left-shoulder bumps. Garner backing up, getting outworked: she's in sturdy earmuff, sponging up damage, answering back thick and strong in spots to offending paunch and ribs. Girls grunting in close, pushing in shoulder to shoulder - Judd really digging at enemy gut, cuffing and tugging hooks against belly to get Jen grumpy. Fight drifts to ropes - Ashley on top...round ends to the sight of Jen taking a BASHING right on the mouth, followed by brace of hooks as she sags momentarily stunned against ropes. "Cleanin' up on you Jen!" Ashley shouts as ref's moving in...Garner scowling/pouting once she's protected by official.
R3: Girls showing competing earmuffs, bumping shoulders midring, slamming away in tight. Left uppercuts for Jen score early, sending tremors down Ashley's thighs...Judds spills past Jen's left shoulder, momentarily wobbly-butt. Garner hard-hearted in pursuit - stepping in/bending forward to sweep the right wide and loud to Judd-gut: Ashley grimacing in pain as she's belted to ropes. Jen squares up vs Ashley's rigid earmuff, beating the bejesus out of Judd's strong arms in strategic reprisal. Jen thick and strong upon her full-bodied rival, but Ashley not going away: Judd fitting Jen for sneaky, short left uppercut from the earmuff; clouting Jen wide-righty to ear - always covering up quick after scoring.
R4: Test of overall strength as girls reach in left arms under opposing rights, looking to walk the opponent around. Judd the boss at it - muscling Jen to ropes, then working her over via short right hands stuffed amidships or clubbed to ear. Jen answering back out of the clinch, but she's pressed against ropes, unable to get weight forward into Ashley...Judd enjoying the better position/leverage atop her rival. Grinding, mauling, sloppy brawling stumbles on past the bell: sweaty-browed ref has to work hard to pull big-bodied beauties apart. Ashley shouts: "THAT'S JUST THE WAY I LIKE IT JEN!" Garner furious, sullen, ass-kicked refuses to be baited.
R5: Women reach in to work out of the same clinch...this time Jen's legs drive Ashley into ropes and it's Garner with the advantage, slugging righty. Girls grunting and punching - left arms in under opposing rights; mouths open on opposing left shoulders; right hands pounding at enemy guts, or trying for heads up top as the opponent rolls-right with the awkward clubbing. Garner showing tremendous strength in pinning Ashley to ropes, outworking her offensively while keeping her tied up. Judd panting, visibly demoralized when Jen pushes off all "I'm big" after bell.
R6: Brutal slogging as pace slows; women dig in/set down; hands stay heavy. Ashley clubbing Jen hooks upside the head: Garner in woozy earmuff, stumbling to port under heavy fire; Ash turns-with, pounds straight, palm-down right to breadbasket, bunching Jenny up hurrrrt. Later, Garner answering via heartfelt left/rights to waist...Ashley groaning, stooping forward behind mitts, sponging up the worst body punishment of her career in these moments. Down the stretch, Jen unhinged by short, scraping left uppercuts in close...Ashley follows devastated Garner to ropes, nails her pounding right between the mitts to bash back Jenny's head at bell. Girls reeling, blinking in stupor as ref steps in...Ashley tells her corner during break: "She's giving in - I can feel it." Jen tells hers: "She's wearing down...I'm hurting her!"
R7: Fighters bumping mitts in opposing earmuffs/scraping foreheads, then getting off short n' stout. Midway through, tuff little left uppercuts chip away on Ashley's chin...she stumbles out of orbit, looking awestruck as she backs into ropes. Jen grim-faced, plodding forward to square up...it's a classic Jennifer Garner pocket-reduction as Ashley stoops forward dukes-at-temples/butt-in-ropes! OH THE HUMANITY! Jen fetching Ashley thick, pounding rights and lefts to midsection - just loading up, twisting side to side to fit 'em in loud. Ashley paralyzed, wilting: Jen stacks her up, goes to work shelling the arms, loosening up the guard. Job done, Jen starts to key on the chin, catching Ash right uppercut/left hook combos, PUNCHING ASHLEY GROGGY! Judd's eyelashes fluttering, hands falling out of position...SHE'S THERE FOR THE TAKING! Jen stone-hearted, feeding Ashley blunt rights/clouting lefts, bashing away at the dregs and THE REF STEPS IN! Ashley out on her feet, breaking down into heartbroken tears as she's stopped via TKO7 Garner!
After: Jen battered, but belligerent - still glaring close-by sobbing Ashley until Foxfire team mates walk her away. "I'm hurting," a puffy-eyed Jen admits in postfight, "but happy. Make that thrilled. Damn her! Ashley fought like a champ tonight - I should be shaking her hand, but all I want to do is work her over in her corner! She's got sock, I'll give her that - and she's as solid a woman as we've got in the division, but she got my back up with her smack talk. Looks like she might be beating me into retirement all right, if by that she meant retiring FIRST!"
