After the weigh in Hector went out and had himself a massive meal of two thick steaks, eggs and fries. He drank copious amounts of water in order to try and rehydrate his body but the damage had already been done.

Emanuel Stewart asked if he was alright as he taped up his hands in the early hours of the morning so that punters across the world could tune in and watch pay per view.

“Why shouldn’t I be he snapped.’ Listen Manny, don’t worry this bum ain’t going the distance.’

“Well for your sake I hope that you are right.’

Fernandez had waited until Stewart and Coley were out of the dressing room seeing to another fighter when a man entered the dressing room.

“You got the stuff?’

“Yeah, where’s my money first.’

Hector handed him a roll of cash then took the stranger into the cubicle where upon he jabbed his ass with a syringe full of Nandrolone. When he came out Fernandez was rubbing his buttock and began to walk back and forth in the dressing room.’

“Good luck said the man as he disappeared down the corridor then into the crowd. Many had started to take their seats, anyone who was anyone was there including Sylvester Stallone who had just made his third Rocky movie. He had a ringside seat as did Frank Sinatra and Jack Nicholson.

Arthur McCante was the referee who had been chosen having refereed over eighty world title fights in the past including the fight of the century between Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier. Michael Buffer would make the ring announcements. Whitney Houston would sing the American anthem and Shirley Bassey would sing the British anthem.

Hector put on his foul proof protector then his purple coloured shorts with white tassles. Across the middle was the name Iron Man in black lettering. He put on his white sports socks then his purple and white suede boxing boots made by Adidas the gel insoles made them more comfortable to wear. He shadow boxed in front of the full length mirror then Manny came in and rubbed Vaseline over his face and body to help the punches slip. 

The fight between Paul Tucker Grant and Gerry “White Lightning” Wilmot was now into the sixth round of a scheduled ten rounder. Norman had Paul ahead by two rounds but he knew better to trust American Judges when it came to points decisions.

When the round was over Norman told Paul he was behind on all scorecards. “If you want to win this fight Paul you are going to have to step up the pace.’ Get that jab working and put in them body hooks. Set him up for a right uppercut when you get in close.’

Paul took a sip of water then Norman wafted the towel in his face to give him some much needed clean air. With all cigar smoke in the arena it was hard to catch your breath. Paul went after his man from the bell. He was like a man possessed. He hit Wilmot with lefts and rights to both body and head. Wilmot sought sanctuary of the ropes but Paul was relentless, he pounded his body until his body doubled up then he threw a right uppercut which caught his man flush on the jaw. Wilmot’s head went back then his legs buckled and he dropped to the canvas. Paul ran across to a neutral corner as the count began. Gerry Wilmot tried to get up; he reached for the bottom rope to raise himself but the count was now at eight. He got to his feet as Richard Steele counted him out.
