The absence of one of the boxers led the ring announcer to issue a friendly challenge: 1,000 pounds will go to the woman who lasts at least 3 minutes in the ring with his fighter. Ronnie eagerly accepts, intending to lasts the three minutes, but her opponent turns aggressive, forcing Ronnie to knock her out.
