LOL - I hope he put mucho bolivianos in her G-string or would it be under her bowler hat.

But Polonia Ana Choque Silvestre always gets her cut as they fight in her back yard.

If you’re filing an eyewitness report on Fight Club, then you probably aren’t aware of Rule #1.

I did not want to deprive the Guardian of the hits.

I wonder what the rules are.

No hair pulling, kicking, biting, scratching or stomping on the hat.

The last referee that gave that caution was badly injured by the spectators.

Sofia Vergaras, she is the referee.

The Godesses know their clientele.

Hey, even photo tips at the link...:^)

Pro tip
The photographer has asked the subjects to adopt formal poses in a symmetrical arrangement. This well-ordered group contrasts well with the chaotic backdrop to create an excellent portrait

I found a few additional photos of this group that I thought may be of interest.

Because I don't speak Spanish, I'll post the original photo captions under each picture, and follow that caption with a Google translation to English.  Spanish speakers please feel free to post corrections to the always-badly-flawed Google translations.

Sus nombres tal vez digan poco, pero si hablamos de Las Titanas descubriremos a todo un país, Bolivia, rendido a los encantos de estas luchadoras de 'wrestling'. Pese a la dureza del show, sólo cobran 10 euros por combate. Alguna ha muerto en el ring.

It does seem that the choreographers make sure that it is the prettier ones that get to show their legs. The girl in the second picture is worth the entrance fee.

They will arrange that in the end she will win the fight although she will have had her skirt ripped off and a little more than a wardrobe malfunction to the north.
