This was the event everyone was talking about. Ravana, one of the greatest ever who had never been defeated, agreed to fight a local boxer. There were even rumors that Ravana in his earlier years made a deal with the devil to be the greatest boxer ever and that no boxing champion could ever defeat him. However, there was a tiny detail that the great Ravana overlooked. He had no protection against a boxer who was not a champion.
When his brother informed him of this teeny-tiny detail Ravana barked in his face, "You really think that anyone who has never won a bout of boxing and has never been proclaimed a champion could ever defeat me at my own game?! AHAHAHA." He erupted with laughter and Ravana later forgot this conversation.
It wasn't until Ravana's sister, Shurpanakha, met Rocky Rama that this entire ordeal would get started. After Shurpanakha had an embarrassing stalking incident she soon realized that Rocky Rama was not willing to give up his blossoming relationship with Sita/Adrien to run away with her.
She devised a plan to have Rocky Rama embarrassed in front of the entire nation in the perfect fashion, by getting pummeled by her brother. Her initial idea was to just have Ravana assault Rocky Rama while walking down a dark alley one night, but that was not humiliating enough. "No," she thought. "It should be on a grand stage. And what is more grand than the World Heavyweight Championship bout."
Her plan really took off from there. All she had to do was bruise her brother's ego and then convince him to fight a local challenger who had never won a fight before and that's how it all got started.
Finally, it was Diwali and the two opponents were in the ring squaring off. Ravana did nothing special to prepare for this fight and wears his arrogance as a cape, while Rocky Rama has been waiting his entire life to finally go the distance with the King of Boxing.
Immediately into the bout Rocky Rama unexpectedly knocks down Ravana with his first punch. This embarrasses Ravana and the match turns tense. Both fighters sustain massive injuries while the match lasts for 15 rounds, the longest Ravana has gone without knocking out his opponent in his career as a boxer.
Finally after 15 rounds Ravana just can't take it anymore and falls to the floor with a final punch from Rocky Rama. The crowd goes wild and rushes into the ring to congratulate Rocky Rama who just screams for his loving girlfriend. And so ends the epic tale of how Rama defeated Ravana.

Author's Note: When I started this story, I had no idea it would turn into a Rocky Balboa fan fiction. haha. But it somehow did. I think I wrote it this way because I originally wanted to write about Ravana and Rama's final battle and then I made an association between the battle between Rocky Balboa and Apollo Creed. I feel like my stories have been a little depressing lately and have dealt with sadness, so I wanted to write something that was lighter and a little more fun. Sorry if this was just super bizarre. It's been a weird week.
