“I have decided to sign on for another installment of Celebrity Boxing to be aired in July of 2002. If any of you Hollywood bimbos think you can take down Darva Conger...bring it! But be ready to get your ass beaten and be humiliated on national television.” Then she blew a kiss into the camera and the video went off.
The networks and the media got quite a kick out of her public statement. But it just so happened that it created the media frenzy she was looking for. Everyone was anxious to see who her opponent would be. The next thing Darva knew....the CEO of Fox Networks gave her a call on a Saturday afternoon.
“Darva Dear...we have found an opponent for you....”
Bridgette Nielson was getting old and wasn’t garnering the same attention she did in her ‘Red Sonja’ and ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ days. She was taking roles in B movies and making an occasional media appearance but she couldn’t seem to create a good buzz in Hollywood anymore. She was sitting with a couple of her friends and was flipping through the TV stations and saw Darva issuing a challenge to all of the Hollywood ladies. Bridgette couldn’t believe the nerve of this little girl. She quickly called FOX and arranged to sign on the dotted line.
Pre-match interview with Bridgette Nielson.
Announcer: “What motivated you to participate in Celebrity Boxing?”
Bridgette: “Well I saw the last installment of celebrity boxing and found it rather amusing. I never thought in a million years that I’d be participating, but after Darva Conger’s press release... Well, I couldn’t get over how cocky she is! The little bitch really thinks she’s tough!! Look at me, well over 6 feet and my strength and reach is much better than hers. I’m going to put her down and teach her a lesson she’ll never forget. She doesn’t stand a chance.”
Announcer: “Well you have it folks, some Stinging words from Bridgette Nielson. I wouldn’t want to be in Darva Conger’s Prada pumps tonight.”
Pre-match interview with Darva Conger
Announcer: “Strong words earlier from Bridgette Nielson!! What’s your response?”
Darva: “Well.... it was a good laugh. I think my skills speak for themselves. I put down one old geezer bitch last time.....so hell....why not make it two tonight? I was hoping for someone a little closer to my age or even younger but...whatever - I’m an equal opportunity ass kicker. The only thing that’ll be red on Red Sonya will be her fat ass cheeks after I give her the beating of a lifetime!!”
Announcer: “Wow! Folks a highly anticipated match in the works here...it looks like we are going to be getting our money’s worth tonight. Ladies and Gentleman.... Darva Conger is in the blue corner and Bridgette Nielson in the red corner. Now, LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!!.

Announcer 2: “Bridgette is wailing on her!!”
Announcer 1: “Darva attempts a wild punch....Bridgette knocks her in the side of the head...she has Darva against the ropes....left, right, left!!”
Announcer 1: “Darva was saved by the bell. Wow! Bridgette really came out strong there.”
Announcer 2: “It just boils down to the size and the strength that Bridgette was speaking about earlier. I don’t know how Darva can compete. Darva’s eating her words thus far. lol.”
Announcer 1: “Darva looks a little angry about her performance in the first round. Bridgette’s so much bigger than Darva who looks like a little girl out there next to her.”
Announcer 2: “But also keep in mind that Darva is much more athletic and quicker than Bridgette. The longer this goes...the better it may be for Darva.”
Announcer 1: “Well we are going to find out...here comes Round 2!”
Announcer 1: “OK here we go. Darva’s looking a little hesitant.

Announcer 2: “They’re still fighting after the bell!! The ref is trying to separate them.”
Announcer 1: “Darva just spit at Bridgette!! This is intense!!”
Announcer 2: “Well they are finally broken up. Bridgette looks pretty winded over there but it is only going to take her one strong punch to take Darva out.”
Announcer 1: “Darva is getting advice from her trainer and Bridgette looks absolutely irate!! What a match we have here folks!! What will the judges decide when this is said and done?”
Announcer 2: “You could cut the electricity with a knife!!”
Announcer 1: Here it is folks!!! The deciding round!!”
Announcer 2: Bridgette is running at Darva! Swing and a miss by Bridgette!”

Announcer 1: “I can’t believe she knocked Bridgette out COLD!!”
Announcer 2: “Darva has the mic!! She is getting down in Bridgette’s face. I want to hear this!!”
“Not so tough, huh Bridgette? I told you you ere no match for me, the old bag,” Darva hissed. “And don’t even think of challenging me again because next time I’ll hurt you for real.” Darva then once again spit in Bridgette’s face and then smiled all pretty and blew her proverbial kiss to the crowd and said...”Now...who’s next?”
