In My Head






The Self-Loather and The Revolutionary are in the ring. They charge toward eachother. The Revolutionary gives a quick, swift right-jab. The Self-Loather takes it in the left cheek bone and responds with a left hook to the side of The Revolutionary's head.
The Revolutionary comes back and they lock gloves.
The Revolutionary frees himself and jabs The Self-Loather's abdomen.
The Self-Loather takes a step back then charges The Revolutionary, plummeting his head.
The Revolutionary tries to block his face but becomes overpowered. And with a crushing blow, The Self-Loather hits the Revolutionary in the right eye, knocking him to the floor.
1...2...3...
The Revolutionary gets up, shaken but not stirred. They lock eyes.
The Self-Loather starts in. The Revolutionary throws a left hook. The Self-Loather blocks it and swings with his right--and hits.
The Revolutionary comes back. They're in a lock.
The Revolutionary jabs The Self-Loather in the gut. The Self-Loather hobbles backwards.
The Revolutionary approaches and punches The Self-Loather straight in the face. The Self-Loather falls back, struggling. His head hits the ground.
1...2...3...
