He heard the Battler's seconds shout to their man to "tear into" him.
He felt the Battler's strength in that clinch and he realized it was more than his.
He shot up his right and it pounded into the Battler's ribs.
The Battler feinted, swaying his body from side to side, and came at him.
His body reeled as the Battler pounded him, his head, his face, his back.
