Lena vs. Lisa Marie
TPC-94-9-1 Topless Competitive Wrestling
The referee, Phil Barrett, introduced the contest as a “no rules and no time limit” wrestling match with submissions and pins. Lena Davey at 5ft 5ins and 145lbs from London, England was pitched against Lisa Marie, from New Zealand, who at 5ft 10ins and145lbs was fighting a little above her normal weight. The “no time limit” stipulation meant that the fight would be ended by one of the fighters surrendering the entire match.
Lena started the fight aggressively, first trying to get a fall with a grapevine pin and when that failed she managed to get Lisa in a body-scissors which gave the Londoner the first submission of the match. The second session started with Lena taking the lead again, but quickly the New Zealander took control and in just under 2 minutes she equalized the score with a body-scissors submission of her own.
It soon became apparent in session three that Lisa Marie was progressively taking complete control of the fight. The New Zealander manipulated Lena in a number of holds until after another 5 minutes of intense wrestling the Londoner was made to submit to a second powerful body-scissors.
Lisa Marie completely dominated the action in session four putting her English opponent in a succession of painful holds whilst not quite forcing her to submit. Despite the “no rules” stipulation, at one point the referee had to stop Lisa Marie from injuring Lena in a choke hold. Finally after 10 minutes of unremitting punishment Lena was forced to submit to a superbly executed combination of chin-pull and leglock holds which gave Lisa Marie the lead by 3 falls to 1.
Having been wrestling hard for nearly 20 minutes both women were sweating profusely at the start of session five. From the start the New Zealander totally dominated the action putting her opponent through hold after hold in quick succession. After some 3 minutes of this action Lisa trapped Lena face down in a double leglock and it looked as this would be the New Zealander’s submission hold, but then she lifted the Londoner’s legs and moved her into a Boston Crab. Lena cried in pain as Lisa Marie bent her backwards in this fearsome hold. The London yelled out her submission, but Lisa Marie kept up the pressure and called for Lena to submit the match. Phil Barrett called the submission, but Lisa still would not release the hold instead insisting that Lena must submit the match. Lena, by now screaming in pain, at last called out her complete submission. However, Lisa kept up the pressure on the Boston Crab until the match submission was confirmed by the referee when, finally, she released her hold.
Lena remained face down on the mat for some time recovering from her ordeal as Lisa Marie returned to her corner. Slowly Lena got to her knees as the referee announced the result of the fight. Lisa Marie came and stood stride her defeated opponent and pulled the Londoner’s hair in a dismissive gesture before raising both arms in triumph at her convincing victory.
Marie-Laure vs. Lena
TPC-95-9, Topless International club wrestling
The fight between the French champion wrestler Marie-Laure and Lena took place in Norfolk, England in July 1995. The fight was refereed by wrestler and muscle woman Christine Marshall who had her work cut-out controlling the aggressive French fighter. We are not told whether there was any pre-existing bad blood between Marie-Laure and Lena, but certainly when they got into the ring the French woman attacked the Londoner as if she was her mortal enemy. This is an account of the fight which was published in the November 1995 edition of Amazons in Action magazine number 72:
Two of the toughest women on the amateur circuit now meet to settle their differences in the ring. Both are topless, both are well built, both clearly mean business from the first bell.
The rules are introduced as being “Semi-Professional Style”. Marie-Laure clearly relishes the opportunity to play the traditional pro-style villain, and takes every opportunity to aggravate her opponent, slapping and kicking her between falls and refusing to shake hands.
Although Lena is aggressive, Marie-Laure's hugely formidable technique allows her to take charge throughout, and she even manages to relieve Lena of the upper part of her bathing costume early in the match (the Frenchwoman is topless throughout). This clearly infuriates Lena.
Marie-Laure next shows her ability to apply more orthodox holds with a full-nelson/body-scissors combination from which Lena struggles vigorously to escape.
When Lena threatens to take charge, her agile foe escapes with ease, springing out of trouble with a spectacular handstand.
Lena is further provoked by a foot pushed insultingly into her face following a head-scissors submission. Her discomfiture is soon compounded by a cradle-hold that completely wraps her up: at this point, she is provoked to audibly complain about not enjoying this match at all.
Marie-Laure finishes her off with a body-press from behind, Lena flat out upon the mat, legs kicking vainly as her arms are extended fully by the powerful Frenchwoman.
Overall, it is a devastating show of power and technique by one of the mistresses of the modern ring.
The fight was given a full page spread in Amazons in Action magazine #72 published in October 1995:
