[Southpaw Boxing Gym]
For a moment, it seems Emily's defense will be battered aside as Calm Reed wishes. The large woman staggers back, but as Calm Reed is moving in to assault her torso, Emily's fist suddenly comes up from below, in what would be a devastating uppercut if it hits.
Emily can't match Calm Reed's speed and power, but if there's anything she has, it's endurance, letting herself get hit a few times to get in a proper strike is exactly the sort of thing she'd do. Calm Reed may even realize this, if she has a good enough read on Emily's fighting ability. If she does, this counterattack is liable to fail.
