Sometimes it’s just fun to watch two girls knock the hell out of each other for a while. That’s what you get with the latest FightGirlz 2000 release, Championship Series, Fight 3. No, this isn’t a superheroine or a spy girl film, but it is an enjoyable back and forth battle featuring fan favorite Cholo against one of the site’s newest cast members, Zoe Hammar.
The Championship Series is an ongoing saga of one on one fights between their ever growing cast of characters. There really isn’t a story line per se—just think of this as a simple fight tournament. This is their third in the series and easily the most polished and enjoyable to watch.
It opens with a really well-edited HBO Boxing type introduction. As mentioned earlier, it features Cholo decked out in short shorts and a blue sports bra top. A recent emphasis of FightGirlz has been to dress the girls in sexier attire, and I don’t think Cholo has ever looked more beautiful than in this film, Her opponent is Zoe, who is a tall, attractive and a powerfully built blonde who has filled a role that I think they needed filled, that of an Amazon type enforcer.
These fights are three rounds in length and for most of the first round, Cholo has control. However, near the end of the first round, Zoe drops Cholo with a vicious combination and the tide of the fight turns. Cholo still has some moments but Zoe really takes it to her for the rest of the match.
Although the fight is punch heavy, there is some variety with kicks, choke holds and knee strikes. I should note that for those of you who are big into throat lifts, there are two well-executed ones in this episode. The first is especially cool as Zoe easily lifts and pins Cholo against the wall and lands several punches with her free hand.
Another thing FightGirlz has been experimenting with in their recent films is battle damage. Nothing major, just a bit of makeup to show some bruising on the face. This usually appears well into the fight and adds a touch of realism that I kind of like.
And that’s it. For those of you who like back and forth F/F fights, you get that for a while in this film. For those of you who like beatdowns you also get that in this film. It’s also a relatively inexpensive at $12.99 for a film that runs over eighteen minutes.
