Neo League 826 - #841: Adon vs Heavy D!

Description: Heavy D! seeks to protect Southtown. Adon seeks to beat up people hiding in Southtown. Both are part of the Neo-League. So when they finally cross paths, Adon immediately forces a fight for one reason, and one reason alone: Pride. <Winner: Adon>


It's hard to be such when you have distinctive things like your size, build...and a particularly unique hairstyle like Heavy D! has. But the boxer manages somehow, a grey hooded sweatshirt over him instead of his usual athletic jacket. Wary eyes peer out beneath that hood too. After all, jogging in this kind of environment isn't exactly the safest of things to do. Then again, it's not quite all training for D!. Half-jogging, half-patrol, one might see it.

After all, he wants to help protect people with the good nature to board him while he's stuck in the city looking for a particular someone. His usual handwraps hidden beneath cloth gloves, his usual boots replaced by sneakers, the boxer continues to huff and run. He just hopes he avoids running into the very kind of people he's looking out for.

"Aaaaaaand we are rolling."

Joe hold his brand new camera level behind the Emperor of Muay Thai. To each of his flanks were five men, each someone trained in the art of Muay Thai. Behind him, was a bushy-mustached middle aged man, glaring coldly around him as he takes shots from a procured bottle of vodka. For Joe, he was just the cameraman for Adon adventures; A window to the life of Adon.

For Adon, he was becoming a liability.

The emperor, like Heavy D, was roaming through the city on business. They both would beat up dangerous people. They both would protect the innocents of the city. But the Emperor of Muay Thai was not here to protect people. He was here for one thing, and one thing only: Neo-League. He had pierced through the armies of Shadaloo and NESTS simply to hunt down members of the Neo-League, and beat them up. Cameraman would record. And the drunk judge would over see it. All in all, it was official. And with the chaos enveloping the city, the advantage almost always seemed to lie with Adon. And now, like Heavy, he was in the same half-stage. Patrolling for victims. Working to exercise.

And down the same street as him, marching with his small force.

Now that's horribly suspicious.

Then again, without gunshots, suspicious remains just that. No confirmation in D!'s mind without anything overt to mark them as a danger...yet. The boxer does eye the posse however, frowning and wondering just what a group like that would be doing around here.

Just suspicion so far...but it's just that suspicion that forces D! to turn a corner...and slow to a stop, giving a short peer around the corner to wonder just who the hell those guys are. They BETTER not be heading toward the village....

Damn straight they were heading towards the village.

"So, Adon sir, what is the Emperor doing today?"

As the group marches along, Adon just stares ahead, grinning like a clown. As Joe sticks the camera in his face, he suddenly stops his smirk. Immediately, he erupts into a howl. "JOE! For the LAST TIME! We are just LOOKING for PEOPLE for the NEO-LEAGUE TOURNAMENT!" The Emperor of Muay Thai was distracted... and eager. As he was walking down, he spotted a man going the same way. And then, the man dropped out around the corner. He was AFRAID. And to that, Adon swung his hand around in a small circle. His men began to spread out from a column into a single line, meeting shoulder to shoulder as they covered the entire street. Adon had run into trouble-makers across the city. If this was an ambush, then he would be ready.

Now that was even more suspicious. The sudden scattering, in a way that was most obviously trained and planned made D! even more worried. Considering they were heading to the village too, it's unlikely that they were up to any good. "Dammit," the boxer mutters, pulling his hood down and pulling off those cloth gloves, showing the wrapped fists beneath."

"Whatever the hell you guys are planning..." He cracks his neck slightly before slowly emerging from around the corner. That many guys could be a problem...but as long as he plows straight through and gets to the village before them, he might be able to deter them and perhaps prepare for whatever they're gunning for.

"Well, it is for the record, Mr. Adon, sir, and- whoa!"

The camera locks straight on Heavy D! as he emerges from around the corner. One tough guy. Adon's grin returns as he stops short. The ten warriors join their leader, and promptly drop into their defensive stance. A thug. They have come across thugs before, and have dealt with them easily. Adon crosses his arms, twisting his nose up. The camera switches from Adon to the approaching man. The emperor looks down, his small army waiting for orders. And to that, the Jaguar speaks.

"Why HELLO there. It is I! The EMPEROR of MUAY THAI! I HOPE you are not LOOKING for TROUBLE! For as you can SEE, you are OUTNUMBERE-"

"Heavy D."

Adon's eyes burn with a furious light as he snaps his neck to the drunk judge. "I've TOLD you before NOT to SPEAK until AFTER I'VE GIVEN MY SPEECHES!" Adon began to march towards the judge as the man rummages for his pocket. As the Emperor stomps well into his face, the man pulls out a PDA, and begins to roll down. Unlike Vyle, Alfred knew Heavy D! well enough. There were two major American boxers in the states. Of course, M. Bison. The other major boxer, however, was Heavy D!. Part of the Sports Team, he wasn't exactly a top tier fighter. But Alfred knew his Americans well. Pulling up his file, he just takes another swig from the bottle as Adon stood there, glaring at him, barely restraining himself. The judge looks up into the eyes of the Emperor, and nod his head before leaning to look at the boxer. "Hey! Better warm up, Heavy D!, you have a Neo-League fight as of... oh.... 10 seconds ago."

Alfred then promptly takes another swig as Adon turns around. He hated the judge. He hated the cameraman. They were all abusing their positions. If they weren't so useful to the emperor, he would break their necks. But no. Adon needed them. He needed to fight in the Neo-League... and apparently, this THUG was one of them. He spread his hands outwards in a sweeping motion. His army falls back, forming a loose circle around the pair. "YOU! You are FORTUNATE that I do not have to KILL YOU! I, the EMPEROR of MUAY THAI, ACCEPT your CHALLENGE to the NEO-LEAGUE!" Adon begins grinning as he puffs his chest out. "PREPARE YOURSELF!"

Well, hell, seems they all gathered back up, didn't they? That's....not good for D! Looks like he's really gonna have to find a way to break through and make a charge for the Village now. "I don't know who the hell you guys are, but...."

Then the mustaschioed judge talks, bringing up his name. Dammit, that's not good. Are they making him a target or something? Fists tighten, the wedgehawked one sinkng down into a ready stance....before Adon makes his pronouncement.

"...what?" That takes him off guard, his stance relaxing. "...did you just say...Neo League?" he asks, stunned. "...Neo League? Are....are you insane? You, we're in the middle of a war zone, and you want to fight for the league? Wh-...what the hell's your problem?" the American asks in an increasingly dumbstruck and angered tone.

If Heavy D! was dumbstruck, it was fair to say that he wasn't alone. What Adon was doing was atrocious, self-centered, and ultimately unfair. As Adon just stood there grinning, he just nodded his head as Heavy spoke. He seems to consider it. As Joe pulls back to get the full fight, the Emperor of Muay Thai simply screeches his reply.



As the judge half-heartedly approves of the match's beginning with a handwave, the Jaguar of Muay Thai launches through the air into a single flying knee. Pouncing on the dumbstruck Heavy D!, he planned on smashing that single knee right into the face of the boxer. Pure power, pure offense, and pure speed.

The Metro City Native was galled at that kind of self-centered disregard for real life and the weight of the current situation. It's almost unfathomable that someone would be so....well....uncaring in either direction about what's happening.

Of course, that doesn't mean that he's stupid or slow. While he's left out of his stance, the shout and screech bring him to attention enough that when Adon flies through the air, the boxer is ready with his arms up to catch the hard knee driving forward . Forearms taking the blow rather than his face, the boxer pushed back mostly from his earlier inattention. "What the hell is with all you people," he says through gritted teeth. HIs arm pulls back after stopping the knee, coming low to his waist. With but a grunt of exertion, his arm swings out and upward, fist glowing with chi as an explosion of energy expands out from the arc of his uppercut.

Adon's knee is rebuffed by the quick reflexes of a trained boxer. To that, Adon seethes. He was hoping to catch him off guard. Instead, he was getting into the fight quickly. Looks like another decent fighter, unlike Spider... or Vyle. The Jaguar growls, his smile spreading wider. As he landed back on the ground, he automatically drew his arms up and in. Leaping in like that begs a counter-attack, and Adon was too experienced to expect anything less. What does take him off guard is the energy attack.

The chi projectile slams against the Muay Thai master's arms, knocking him back as well. Increased distance was not the best friend of the Emperor, unless he was on the defensive. "IMPRESSIVE! Maybe there will be MORE FIGHT in your than the OTHERS!" Adon squawks as he pounces again. This time, however, he wasn't going for a full frontal assault. Instead, he was springing up towards the boxer's shoulders. Hands out, the Emperor of Muay Thai was attempting to seize Heavy D! by the shoulders. If successful in getting his grip, he would flip over him, and using the leverage, simply hurl him down the street.

HeavyD           0/-------/--=====|====---\-------\0             Adon

The boxer is slightly annoyed at just how...excited Adon seems to be for this, even as he manages to push him back with the Blast Upper. Unfortunately, any attempts at reasoning are futile, D! can see that much. No wasted words as he slips into his proper peek-a-boo boxing stance. Eyes narrow as they look over his knuckles toward the Jaguar of Muay Thai, sinking down in preparation.

As Adon flashes in, D!'s ready. As hands meet his shoulders and try to heft him up, D! surges forward, arm extended and chi coursing over the length of the limb. "DDHhhnnnn!!" he grunts out, exerting the force he can into the blow as he drives the full extending, lunging punch straight into Adon's chest. It doesn't keep him from rolling off in a tumble from the earlier pulling, but he can only hope that Adon felt that more than he did.

The strike that hits the Emperor of Muay Thai is met with all ten Muay Thai guards booing and hissing. Adon himself just falls back, a sharp hoot shooting through the air. "JAAGA?!" The Muay Thai master was astounded that someone like Heavy would even think of trying to punch through his attacks. He did not really care about the Sports Team. Why would he? He thought that Heavy was just another boxer. But his style wasn't like Bison. It was... more dynamic. He staggers back for a moment as he still sends D! tumbling across the ground...

And Adon is already on top of Heavy D!

The Emperor of Muay Thai was like a jungle cat, building up into a greater, more feral frenzy. He was springing into another flying knee, it seemed. But something was different this time. Both of his arms were drawn back, preparing either to keep his balance for a more powerful knee thrust, or to smash both of his arms out into a pair of punches. In fact, Adon was going to do both. Heavy needed to roll out of the way, or do something similar, or else he was going to get one knee and two smashing punches as he laid on the ground.

D! is definitely dynamic...but he's pretty solid as well. Just as he manages to get up from the rather rough tumble, he's back into his gaurd in time for Adon's pounce. Muscles flex, teeth grit, and feet dig against the street as the hard punches fly out. Each forearm takes the shots, stinging but otherwise leaving him better for the wear than if he had felt them head on. "Nghhh...."

Ignoring the pulsing pain in his arms for now, Heavy D! pulls his arm back to retaliate, snapping out a swift straight....or that's what it seems like. The left is yanked back just as fast as it comes, D! instead muscling in to drive a right to Adon's body, then another to his ribs before trying to slam him aside with a final left just under the arm.

Adon can't manage to break through D!'s guard, and suddenly, that proves dangerously decisive. The suddenly explosion right back into the Muay Thai Master stuns him, rattling him. He takes a step back, then another step back upon the hits, standing his ground with a howl. He was losing this fight now. He knew it. He needed to change it, and change it quickly...

Suddenly, Adon attempts to grab the Boxer in what seems like another grapple. Hands snapped out, he just turns to twist him a bit, jerking him about like a ragdoll. Up until he throws him across the street towards one of his Muay Thai warriors... who will gladly smash Heavy right in the face.

In self defense, of course.

HeavyD           1/-------/=======|=====--\-------\0             Adon

He felt a nice response from those punches, definitely. D! felt his rhythm hitting as he started to batter Adon, pushing the Muay Thai artist back. With the man reeling, the boxer stepped forward...only to find himself grappled at again.

Unable to pull away, D! simply leaves himself in harms way, taking the jerking and throwing the best he can. He guts hit out, making use of all that hardening training in the gym, even as he's tossed aside, and smashed in the face by one of Adon's thugs.

The one thing that Adon can't have expected, however, is for D! to rebound straight from the cheap shot to wing back with a monstrous hook, aimed straight for his pointy chin. Nothing fancy...just a good ol' right hook to the jaw.

HeavyD           1/------=/=======|=======\-------\0             Adon

Adon's cheap shot almost makes it. Almost. As he hurls the boxer over and around, he thinks he has the boxer down for the count. However, what happens is that not only does he ignore the apparent shake around, but he comes right back with a punch.

Right in the jaw.

The judge doesn't pay attention to the illegal move. But suddenly, he springs to his attention. "Hold it, Heavy D!, hold it. You can't use outside interference with you... uh.... with your fighting." The judge pulls himself up from his sitting, taking another shot from the vodka. Yes, the judge was calling Heavy out for making an illegal move. And why? Adon was staggering back, taking advantage of the brief delay. After all, that's what he paid the judge for. Staggering back, he just grins, adjusting his jaw. Damn, that guy had a mean right hook.

Meanwhile, Alfred continues to talk. "Now, back up, Heavy, back up, both of you, back up, and, oh, whatever. Just keep fighting."

The judge sits back down, taking Adon sudden thumbs up to heart. He tanks back another swig of the vodka.

COMBATSYS: Adon gains composure.

HeavyD           1/------=/=======|=====--\-------\0             Adon

Now that's crap. D!'s faced some crooked judges, but that's just.....well, whatever, D! isn't really caring about where this puts his status with the league. He's not in a terribly good mood after this whole thing as is. He just wants to get it done with, and he's pretty sure he'd rather get out still conscious.

With Adon trying to stagger back and catch his breath, D! presses on. He's got too much going right now, and he's not going to give up the higher ground. Even if he just snaps out jab after jab on Adon to keep the Muay Thai artist off balance, he's keeping at it.

There was a dirty secret that Adon didn't know about. See, while he kept the judge in his front pocket, Alfred didn't feel obliged to actually, well, ignore the Emperor's losses. If Heavy D! managed to pull a win over the Jaguar, he might find himself fairly high up in the very league he wasn't thinking about. Or dead. Adon was quite dangerous like that.

As Joe kept filming, Adon just stood there, letting Heavy punch forward. His idea was to take a hit, then smash on through. But something else happened. Adon was stunned again, knocked back a bit. As his body was loosening up, he decides to make a break for it.

"JAAAAAGGAAA!" The Emperor began as he front flipped forward, throwing himself into Heavy D! as a body check. As he righted himself up, he wound back his right leg, chi energy building up at his heel. Aiming it right for the face of the good-natured boxer, he simply attempted to drop his heel right through anything that he might try. And to this, the Jaguar King screams:

HeavyD           1/--=====/=======|=======\-------\0             Adon

Ok, that definitely hurt D!. Possibly the only fresh hit Adon manages to land on the boxer, but it's the one that really sets things off.

While D! manages to force Adon back with the repeated jabs, the sudden flipping body check seems to put him off balance....and the heel drop? It manages to slip right over the boxer's guard, smashing him straight in the nose. "GHHHHHHhh!!!!" Falling back, blood suddenly gushing from the likely broken nose, D! drops to the ground after a total flip over onto his stomach. "NHhhnnnn..hhhhhhhnnn...." Breath hisses nasally before a sharp CRACK is heard, the boxer trying to reset the small bones there. That was not fun at all....and it's a hit like that which forces him to pull back and take a breather of his own finally.

COMBATSYS: HeavyD gains composure.

HeavyD           1/---====/=======|=======\-------\0             Adon

Oh my. Adon just felt... weakness.

As the boxer's face is torn open by a broken nose, the Emperor of Muay Thai sees the blood. The entire gang of Muay Thai warriors erupt into cheers as the fight reaches a gruesome climax. The Emperor screams as he lands, expecting Heavy to move in. And he doesn't. Well, as he takes a breather, Adon just takes a sharp intake of breath... and pounces again.

Adon dives for the still bleeding face of the boxer, attempting to grab it, tear at it visciously in a frenzied tackle. He would attempt to bring both himself and the boxer down to the ground... and there, he would smash his elbow right into his broken nose, finishing off the deal.

HeavyD           1/-======/=======|=======\=------\1             Adon

The Jaguar doesn't seem to have any problem with pouncing and tearing at weakness. Beset by the leaping Muay Thai artist, and the repeated strikes and finishing elbow, D! finds his nose twisted even more by the hard elbow blasting him in the face. "NGHhh...." At this close though....there could be...issues. D! isn't that good from the ground, but being driven like this and pinned makes a man desperate. As desperate as he is, D! knows of one fall back.

"" The boxer grunts, pulling back his right hand, and swinging straight up under Adon's chin. He's never done something like this as quick as he has to now, but.....

And thus, the trigger is pulled. It took all of D!"s control to siphon what energy he had into the rising fist at the last second...but once it swings up, the Magnum lets loose, Heavy D! driving the supercharged punch straight for Adon's jaw as his chi blows outward like...well, a Magnum. If Adon thought the hook earlier hurt....well....

The cheering stops short.

Adon made the pin. He made the aggressive, viscious throw down. He unleashed the Muay Thai elbow. D! shouldn't have come back. The judge was getting up, ready to call the fight for the Emperor.

But then comes the Magnum.

Adon lands in a heap about 5 feet away from the boxer, blood pouring from his mouth. His eyes were wide open, burning with rage. He saw it. He just, barely, saw it coming. He tried to block it, but he couldn't. He did the only thing he knew that would have kept him alive at that point, and that was the hardening. His entire jaw tensed up at the last second, solidifing it just enough to keep it from breaking. His teeth, however, were not so lucky. Spitting out a few, he rises up. Rising up isn't the right word.

He looms.

Like a spectre rising from the tomb, Adon is on his feet, body burning with energy. He doesn't give Heavy D! time to weigh out the situation. The Jaguar is pouncing through the air, flipping through it into a heel drop coursing with energy. And then a low kick. Then a straight punch. He was unloading everything onto the boxer, entering what was like a berserker rage. But this was not blind. No, Adon was trying to push him further and further back. Past his men, and into the wall. Once he had him pinned there... he would unleash nothing but a stream of non-stop, endless jab punches...

Right into his bloodied, broken nose.

D!'s pretty well and wrecked as he is. Expending so much into the Magnum, the boxer was slow to pull himself up.

So when the vicious assault comes, D! is a sitting duck, the heel drop flinging him back, the low kick breaking his balance, and the straight punch nearly sending him tumbling back. The repeated Jabs just pile on the damage of what's already debilitating.

Seemingly. Despite the fact that this is obviously his end, D!'s eyes have fire, the sense that the strikes maybe aren't doing as much damage as they should. And the boxer? He comes out with an overhead shot straight for the top of Adon's sloping red head, trying to hammer him down. The shot is a little wide though...and when the followthrough is finished, D! drops to the street, collapsed in a heap.

Once Adon has Heavy D! against the wall, the fight is over. The Emperor knew it. He just hammers the blows in, rearranging the boxer's face. When the light erupts in his eyes, Adon just grins wider, showing even more teeth as the punches keep coming. Slowly, Adon was knocking himself further and further back. When the Haymaker finally erupts out...

Adon springs back, evading it deftly.

Blood is still trickling from the Emperor's grin as his army erupts into cheers. The judge waits a second before calling the fight for Adon. The Emperor removes his crown, holding it high as he glares at Joe's camera. A mostly fair fight... and win for Adon. But it was close. Too close. Just like the Vyle fight. Adon felt the weakness of his talents envelop him. But feeling passes quickly.

After all, he was the champion.

Adon's men collect Heavy D! up, a pair of them carrying the boxer. Adon motioned forward to towards the village, not bothering to even take a rest. He would get Heavy to someone's care. Maybe Shadaloo. Maybe NESTS. Or maybe a caring stranger. Adon didn't care. There was only one glimmer of kindness from the warrior, and that was about the care of the losers. Adon himself knew what it meant to be on the losing end of a terrible loss... or a gruesome victory.

He remembered the price of his victory all too well.
