Longest fight of my life

WARNING: There will be spoilers below to the third book in my trilogy. But I'm not giving away any major plot points or an ending.

That being said, I've spent the last three days writing the longest fight scene of my life, and I'm STILL not finished with it. It's about 2,000 words right now, but that's after being cut back from almost 5,000 words. Also, I've still a little more to add.

Basically, Kron fights a demon. In the middle of the air. While hanging from a rope. And a dozen soldiers in heavy armor are below shooting crossbow bolts at our hero. And Kron is out of grenados and arrows.

Sound like fun? Kron thinks so, and so far he's only suffered three broken ribs, various bruises and minor cuts, and a few major cuts. And he just fell into a bunch of hard wood chairs on a stone floor. And he's yet to take out the demon. Or any of the soldiers. Oh yeah, and he's barely conscious.

Is THAT enough trouble to put my hero into?

You might ramp up the tension a little bit by having Kron also dealing with a case of genital herpes ...
