Round 3- the challenger continues to use ruthless aggression to try and steel the belt from the champion and it’s starting to work. The champ lands a spinning back elbow that opens up a cut over Whitley’s left eye. Doc takes a look at it between rounds but it’s not in a bad place so no need to worry about a stoppage yet.

Round 4- Barrs smells blood ,literally, and starts to uncork some heavy strikes and elbows targeting the left side of the challengers face. The challenger has been slowed a little with the blood loss but is still coming forward. Barrs is getting the better of it and its showing on the face of the challenger.

Round 5-Barrs starts the round going right back to that cut with a high kick and elbows. Whitley will not be moved from this fight though and keeps coming forward but barrs shows no regard for her combinations. Tough fight but the champ is the champ for a reason.
