Intro Sample...


The sounds of blaring sirens and heavy traffic were muffled inside the Osaka Boxing Center, where all that could be heard were the heavy outcries from the audience. The grand finals to determine the Middleweight California State Champion was about to commence. The two fighters were longtime rival and friends Damon and Alfonso. Both fighters were known for their sense of compassion and nobility, especially being boxers, but recent tabloids claiming that Damon would triumph contaminated Alfonso with a sinister state.

Damon rushed towards Alfonso and proceeded to ram his right fist deep into Alfonso’s body. Gasping for air, Alfonso began to tumble over. A sharp creek produced, between Alfonso’s shoes and the ground, as he maintained his footing and prevented his second knockdown.

Before the darkness completely consumed him, Damon used his remaining strength to utter a few words to his former friend. “Damn you… Alfonso.”
The referee began to wave his hands and cry out, “He’s down for the count!” The bell rang, signaling Damon’s defeat. The referee raised Alfonso’s arm high into the air and stated, “The winner is Alfonso.” His declaration, however, was hardly audible due to the loud boos among the audience members. Alfonso looked down at the defeated Damon, who was still unconscious, with a menacing grin.
