Battle Creek Native Carrese Archer Is Part Of A New Show On TBS Called Power Slap
If you've never heard of Power Slap, the show follows slap fighters as they train for the sport and compete.
The fighters are hoping to earn the right to challenge for the inaugural Power Slap Championship, which will be a pay-per-view event on March 11.
How Do Power Slap Fights Work?
Two men stand face to face. Each takes a turn slapping the other man, who keeps his hands at his sides.
The rules say a coin toss decides who goes first.
Each fighter can only use an open hand and must strike a blow above the jaw but below the top of the ear.
There are three rounds and if nobody gets knocked out, the match goes to judges to render a decision based on points.
