Sonya nailed her with a solid left and right to the body, but moments before the bell Pepper finally found the mark with a power-punch of her own. Lunging forward off the ropes, she sent a cracking right hook up into her opponent’s chin. It was her best punch of the fight up to that point and it shook the redhead up considerably. Sonya had just found out the hard way; this girl could PUNCH! Redding was backing away in some confusion when the bell cut in sharply to end the session. Despite that late shot from Pepper, there was no doubt that Sonya had pocketed another round. Returning to her corner, she rubbed her chin but smiled ruefully to her trainer. The fight was going her way, she said, and she was anxious to get back out there and finish the black girl off for good!
