    Help with my fighter game

    OK so here is a fighter game I made..except my fighters power won't decrease and I can't get my fighters names to show up....*sigh*... any idea.. My functions could be wrong.. but I always thought it went above int main()..


    Code:
    #include<iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int fighterOne (char fighter1Attack){
    string fighter1Name;
    // char fighter1Attack; 
    int fighter2Power=1000;
    string fighter2Name;
    cout << fighter1Name << " please choose an attack (P) = Punch, (K) = Kick => ";
    cin >> fighter1Attack;
    if (fighter1Attack == 'P' || fighter1Attack == 'p') {
    fighter2Power -= 50;
    cout << fighter2Name << "'s health reduced to " << fighter2Power << endl;
    }
    else if (fighter1Attack == 'K' || fighter1Attack == 'k') {
    fighter2Power -= 100;
    cout << fighter2Name << "'s health reduced to " << fighter2Power << endl;
    }
    else {
    cout << "Invalid attack, you lose a turn!" << endl;
    }
    }
    int fighterTwo (char fighter2Attack) {
    string fighter2Name;
    //char fighter2Attack; 
    int fighter1Power=1000;
    string fighter1Name;
    cout << fighter2Name << " please choose an attack (P) = Punch, (K) = Kick => ";
    cin >> fighter2Attack;
    if (fighter2Attack == 'P' || fighter2Attack == 'p') {
    fighter1Power -= 50;
    }
    else if (fighter2Attack == 'K' || fighter2Attack == 'k') {
    fighter1Power -= 100;
    cout << fighter1Name << "'s health reduced to " << fighter1Power << endl;
    }
    else {
    cout << "Invalid attack, you lose a turn!" << endl;
    }
    }
    int main() {
    string fighter1Name = "Greg"; 
    string fighter2Name = "Casey"; 
    int fighter1Power = 1000; 
    int fighter2Power = 1000; 
    char fighter1Attack;
    char fighter2Attack;
     
    do {
    fighterOne (fighter1Attack);
    fighterTwo (fighter2Attack);
    }while((fighter1Power > 0) && (fighter2Power > 0));
    if (fighter1Power > fighter2Power) {
    cout << "Fighter 1 is the winner!" << endl;
    }
    else if (fighter2Power > fighter1Power) {
    cout << "Fighter 2 is the winner!" << endl;
    }
    else {
    cout << "The game ended in a draw!" << endl;
    }
    return 0;
    }

    I've got a new game for you to play, it's called "indent your code".

    Above, below, in another file - it doesn't matter.
    What matters is that before you attempt to USE a function, there must be a prototype for that function.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
    I support http://www.ukip.org/ as the first necessary step to a free Europe.

    using namespace std;
    Unless you have a good reason for doing this I'd advise against bringing all of the std namespace into scope.
