Hailee Steinfeld versus Hayley Orrantia
Before: Orrantia a heavy favorite here, even with her recent struggles, Steinfeld hasn’t won a fight in over a year.

R1: Early aggression from Steinfeld as she seeks to impose will, Orrantia stands ground, greets incoming her with robust bursts of bashing lefts and rights. Steinfeld bludgeoned about her head and shoulders--forced to crouch forward; Orrantia immediately working up underneath with digging uppercuts, cramming into tummy and tits until the taller girl’s forced to give ground. Steinfeld circles, curves back on in: meets with the same enthusiastic response as Orrantia churns away. Bold, but counterproductive approach from Steinfeld, she’s banged up in exchanges, repulsed, eventually walked down as Orrantia assumes control late and comes forward punching.
R2&3: Steinfeld changes tack--sprucing Orrantia up with the left jab, pivoting clockwise to make her move her feet. Orrantia’s output drops as she adjusts to new angles: Steinfeld starts changing heights, touching tummy, parting breasts. Neat little changes of direction--suddenly smiting a short right hand into chin in close, then sidestepping-right to turn Orrantia’s flank. Orrantia frustrated, crouching forward in cross-arm guard, bobbing and weaving en route, Steinfeld still chipping away jabs, sidestepping cute, Orrantia getting pre-empted and patted down through all 6 minutes. Late in the third, Steinfeld shoe-shines Orrantia’s stomach, bunching her up: glorious left uppercut picks up Orrantia’s head to put her wobbly butt at the bell.
R4: Hayley proves durable, hounding Steinfeld with increased vigor. Jabbing up out of her crouch, bobbing her way forward: Steinfeld unable to potshot as effectively as Orrantia wades in smart. Collapsing distance, Orrantia able to get work done--beating away brawny lefts and rights in close as Steinfeld tries to slug-with, catching to her face and breasts--she’s getting banged up, forced to retreat: when she she steps back, she’s tagged aggressive follow-ups from a non-stop chugging Orrantia. Orrantia slugging so aggressively side-to-side, she’s catching Steinfeld with inadvertent elbows, drawing warnings as ref tries to maintain control. She’s crowding in and butting Steinfeld’s cheeks and clavicle without thinking--drawing additional warnings. Constant scuff and grind taking a toll: Steinfeld mouth breathing--looking disorganized as she’s harassed all around the ring
R5: Hailee stands her ground, straight lefts and rights criss-crossing against Orrantia's face, beating her shiny. Orrantia bobbing on the spot, showing crossed arm or earmuff as she's moving her head: she's timing Steinfeld now, hopping into short little hooks to chin that drain the hope from the bigger girl's legs. Every once in a while, hopping hooks will destabilize Steinfeld, her knees will bennnnd, then straighten as she staggers away, tears brimming every time she can't bear-up under Orrantia's thunder. Midway through, Orrantia hooking wide again, Steinfeld jabs jug: both girls turn into short right hands to chin and DOWN GOES ORRANTIA! Orrantia’s back leg slides, turning her to her right, then pitching her to her chest...she's crying quietly with right cheek down, eyes closed, body still and it's OVER! Orrantia just can't get off her tummy: Surprise KO5 for Hailee Steinfeld!
After: Orrantia back-pedaling again, once more not able to convert early advantage into a win. With a surging Demi Rose and Claire Holt on the mend, how long is Hayley going to be carried?
