Round 1 The fight began at a brisk pace with an exchange of jabs from long range. It didn’t take long for Sonya to begin taking control, popping Pepper in the puss with several stinging lefts that eventually forced her to the rear. The black girl’s retreat only encouraged her white opponent, and within moments she was probing Pepper’s midriff with a driving left hook. Synn answered in kind but her punch had no seeming effect. Redding pushed in close and quickly forced her rival to the ropes.
