Hailey kissing her biceps before grinning at the assembled reporters and fans.
“Hannah Ferguson? Who’s that? She’s the f*cking champ of JMDD. Y’know what a disgrace that is? Who wants to go after the low-hanging fruit? My eyes are set on Barnard tonight and other ventures,” the cocky blonde’s eyes lighting up as she elaborates on her opponent. “She’s almost TEN years older and I’m TWO inches taller. Not to mention I have that certain ‘blonde factor’. She’s done for, as far as I’m concerned.”
Natasha of course scoffing at being dismissed so easily. The South African native is looking sublime in a pink bikini and white shawl over her shoulders to shield her from the wind.
“Well, at least I have not lost a fight to Hannah Ferguson. TWICE,” she states confidently, enjoying the sputtering look of the blonde across the table.
“Why you little B*TC---!!” Clauson sudden explodes, threatening a melee as it she stands up and makes a beeline for Natasha across the table.
Ring officials however intervene before both big girls can charge at each other, some leftover anger and resentment in Hailey’s trembling voice at her loss record displayed in public. Girls are led to respective corners and this brawl is about to begin. Hailey in a dark tan orange bikini, blonde hair tired back into a ponytail. Natasha with that shawl removed, showing off her slender frame and neat dark hair in battle bun. Here we go with ten rounds of Welterweight action!
Pride certainly cometh before the fall, and Hailey Clauson would do well to take that saying to heart, because as the bell rings, she suddenly realises she’s in the fight for her life. Natasha like a tsunami coming straight at you without pause or concern, but together with her precision, the damage being wrought on Hailey’s face and body speak volumes about her deadly skill. Hailey first charging forward as well, but quickly eating a barrage of jabs aimed straight for her face, forcing her to mix up her offense and defense. Make no mistake, Hailey swinging hard at Barnard as well, but the lanky South African beauty dodging left, weaving right, making her hard to pin down. Instead, Hailey getting spiked to the nose, cheek and tummy each time her punches go wide, leaving herself open to counter-attack. Natasha takes this first round CLEAR in her favour, smiling as she observes the bruises and cuts already inflicted on her foe in the first three minutes. Can Hailey get out of her way in time??
The South African native just too quick on her feet. Furthermore, she’s fixated with Hailey’s body, pounding away with lightning jabs, especially when Hailey tries to close the distance and brawl. Her tummy eating straight shots at a bar like a drunkard who doesn’t know when’s enough. Final blow to the midsection leaves her winded and wounded, bent over and groaning. She’s in dangerous territory now as Natasha goes up top, swiping away at the guard with her heavy artillery now that she knows her foe’s on the run. Bad round for Hailey gets even worse by the minute - she’s driven backwards towards the ropes, body and face repeatedly peppered and seasoned. To the blonde’s credit, her resilience allows her to stay upright until the bell rings to end this round. But two rounds of devastation devastating to Hailey - can she truly salvage this situation?
All signs pointing to a third round knocked-the-f*ck-out-time for Hailey Clauson. Truly, the blonde herself knows the precarious position she’s in. She’s side-stepping and circling instead of charging head on, both trying to catch a breather and also avoid Barnard’s long range tapping. Natasha at least showing some signs of slowing down as well, giving Hailey some respite. The jabbing continues but she only manages to hit at Hailey’s well-protected guard across her face and chest. Clauson FINALLY belting back with a shock one-two jab-jab into Nat’s face in the middle minute - the brunette looking stunned and surprised at the prospect of her EVER getting hit hard in this fight. Clauson not giving her time to reflect, however, circling some more and throwing more and more jabs at the face, forcing Barnard to turtle up herself and defend. Last minute sees neither girl willing to give up her advantage, and they CLASH in the middle of the ring when each gets too close and both refuse to back away: swing of arms and hands as they take turns sapping leather to the cheek and burying fists into the body, steady sounds ughh puhh hggghh puhhh as they trade blows. Bell rings and they’re STILL going at it - referee has to step in to separate the carnage. Barnard possibly taking the worse of that exchange… it’s almost always a bad idea to get into a brawl with Hailey Clauson, as many of her past victims will you tell you that...
Clauson with more confidence all of a sudden, gesturing and shouting at her foe to ‘C’MON! BRING IT ON, B*TCH!!’ at the start. Natasha grinning, not taking the bait, starts her usual slick of circling around the bigger girl and shooting in the jab to pester. Hailey now the wiser, doesn’t want to just stand there and absorb, times a parry of a right jab just perfectly, sending Nat off-kilter. Now’s the time to strike! Hailey bulls forward, sticks both hands into the brunette’s toned midsection, drawing a groan and bending her over. Clauson goes to town in close combat, sacking the midsection with more hooks left and right, then starts cascading shots up high, hoping to break Natasha’s guard once and for all. But the brunette’s hanging on, though she’s taking plenty of punishment. Natasha guarding her face and head religiously, bending low and backing away trying to get out of danger zone. Close to the last few seconds, she even manages to snag Hailey on the chin whilst she’s too busy attacking the body. A one-two-three jab tag the blonde hard on the lips, making her squeal in pain and reel off the assault, checking her bleeding lip instead. “WHY YOU LITTLE--” she begins, specks of red flying, but is stopped from charging back in at the last moment by the referee, who rings the bell to end the fourth.
Hailey back on the losing tide of things as we head into the fifth. She had the advantage earlier on but failed to put Natasha down when she needed to do so. Natasha staying far away this time, thinking Hailey might try and charge her for revenge, which she does. The Siren needs to manage her emotions and stamina a bit more prudently, if we may say so. Natasha doing an excellent job of jumping out of Hailey’s way, counter-attacking with stiff shots to the side of her face and body. Hailey growling like an animal wanting to sink her teeth into her victim’s neck, but each time she swings hard hoping to score, her face pounded on by Natasha’s quick strikes after she weaving backwards or sideways to avoid. Third such attempt leaves Hailey all of a sudden groggy and seeing stars. Natasha continues the attacks: another one, two straight hands straight into Hailey’s nose sends her reeling, and STILL the big blonde refuses to go down. It’s only after a subsequent pounding of punches into above her waistband, followed by a well-placed uppercut to the jaw that SHE CRUMPLES DOWN TO CANVAS!! IS THIS OVER FOLKS?!
Natasha jubilant, arms raised at the sight of her opponent lying at her feet, whose eyes are fluttering and wondering what the hell she did to deserve this humiliation. Referee counting Hailey out steadily while Natasha returns to neutral corner. Dominant display of strategy and power from the South African - we certainly can expect more great things from her in the future! But wait - Hailey’s not out yet, on the rise, using the ropes to force her body up to her feet, but no doubt the big girl’s exhausted as she huffs and puffs over the top rope, clinging on for dear life. She makes it back up by the count of 8! And there’s still a minute left on the clock!
Barnard CHARGING as she knows this is her chance and the only one. Nothing Clauson can do but turtle up and make herself small. But first shot straight to the belly button FUMP almost makes her quit there and then, and then subsequent pounding on the sides of her ribs and the area BELOW her briefs make her reconsider even more, but all she has to do is hang in there for another few seconds. Natasha getting frustrated as she starts targeting the blonde’s guard a little too late. The bell rings and Clauson’s back is still glued to the ropes, body swaying precariously from side to side, as though ready to tilt over. BUT she’s still f*cking standing… Barnard not having the ability to put her away so easily.
If Hailey’s ever gonna be regarded as the ‘next big thing’, she’s gonna have to start acting and fighting like one. We see glimpses of that in round 6, although it might very well just be her tired body making her more cautious. Natasha herself spent from that all out charge in the previous round, so here comes Hailey advancing on her, a step forward at a time, crowding her space with jabs and big hooks that she’s forced to avoid. Natasha getting cornered with her back to the ropes and chooses instead to launch herself forward and brawl. Hailey surprised when a right cross crashes into the middle of her guard, but she quickly swings back with a counter-right hand - SMACKS clean into Natasha’s face, circling her about the ropes with that stunner! What a hook! Natasha groaning as she realises she’s the one in trouble all of a sudden. Hailey on her quickly, steady pounding of fists into her gut as she has her foe right where she wants her. Natasha mewing, trying to clinch up, but her body getting wrecked with the blonde’s elbows working in and out, in and out, Hailey’s teeth clenched as she exacts her revenge. Final minute and at least she gets the clinch, negating the body blows, but Hailey switches up high, pressing her body weight into hers to pin her firm to the ropes, then using her gloves to swipe at her forehead and cheek. When the bell rings, it also opens a nasty gash just above her left eyelid. Referee soon intervenes, shoving Hailey away in order to check on the cut above Nat’s eye. Hailey redeems herself in this round, fighting strategically and playing to her strengths instead of relying on her strength alone.
Referee and ring officials working on Natasha’s cut above the eye best they can, but they have worried looks when Nat insists on continuing to fight, no matter how bad the cut is. With a shrug of shoulders they relent, waving the bell for the seventh to start. Natasha reinvigorated, surprisingly nimble as she takes the fight back to Hailey hoping to have a repeat of the first few rounds where she dominated with her speed and precision. Hailey however has other plans… she’s swinging her hooks less haphazardly this time, picking and choosing the best moments to strike. That moment comes when Natasha, as predicted, fires off a jab combo to her left and then hooks to the face to the right for the knockout. Hailey anticipating the move, blocks with a raised arm just in time, before SOCKING the brunette with a right hand up into her chin! UGHH! That nasty shot ragdolls her, with Natasha thrown backwards and her back hits the ropes again! We all know what’s gonna happen next! Clauson jumping forward, body splashing into her foe’s with a WHUMP and an exhale of air from Natasha’s lungs. Right hands now buried into the pit of her belly pitching her forward, before Hailey seals the deal with ANOTHER uppercut CRASH into her chin, sending her sprawling up and back into the ropes, before pitching forward and landing chin first into the canvas! KNOCKDOWN for Hailey Clauson!
OUCH. Barnard letting her opponent have her way with her, but truth be told it’s difficult to get outta Clauson’s clutches once she sinks her teeth into you. Hailey not bothering to showboat this time, majestic chest huffing and heaving from the exertion as she makes her way back to corner to recuperate. Natasha left to her fate, but BOY is she working to defy it. She’s crawling to the ropes, then makes it to her knees. At the count of 9, just in the nick of it, she manages to stand to face her tormentress one last time, eyes wary and weary.
Referee does a last check to see if she’s okay, but out of the corner of his eye Hailey already preparing to go, two hands up in front of her chest. There’s still one minute left on the clock! Can Natasha survive this? Clauson repeating the move earlier, rushing forward and then lunging at her opponent with a superman punch, but her ultimate weapon is the impact of slamming into Barnard’s, once again driving the air from her already winded body. Natasha putting up a gallant fight, using her free hands to tug at hair or dig into soft flesh, but Clauson manhandling her by comparison, shoving lefts and rights into her chin and cheek, until the sixth such punch completely knocks her senseless. Nat’s hands go limp by the side as her cut opens up once more. C’mon referee - what the hell are you waiting for?! But he doesn’t yet intervene… it’s only until Clauson literally places her leather glove on one side of her face, her dominance assured, and SHOVES Barnard face-down to the canvas. This time, she’s not moving, folks.
Official Decision: Hailey Clauson defeats Natasha Barnard via KO7!
Some trouble for Hailey early in the match, but she’s certainly displayed her ability to go the distance here, and more importantly, showcase her power in knocking a poor girl senseless. Medical teams already swarming the ring, checking on Natasha for a pulse. Thankfully she’s okay, eyes fluttering and mouth sputtering. Hailey observing from a distance, steady stare at the brunette’s rising and falling chest. The Siren contemplates further humiliation, but then decides against it - she’s too spent herself, and her point’s been made already: cross paths with her and she’s physically gonna put you down into the ground!
