A battle of two top welterweights as Hilary Rhoda and Kelly Brook meet tonight on PPV looking to keep in the title hunt.
Hilary is 32 years old; she stands 5'11, her record stands at 23 wins, all by way of knockout, with 9 defeats, she is a former FCBA welterweight champion.
Kelly is 39 years old; she stands 5'8, her record stands at 49 wins, 39 by way of knockout, 63 defeats with 5 draws, she is the current BBU JMDD champion, a former two time FCBA lightweight champion and a former Queen of the Ice Hotel.
The build up saw both fighters mostly staying quiet, fully focused on getting ready for what both clearly see as a big fight for their careers.
They did give a statement though after a tense weigh in, where after they were weighed in bikinis, they came face to face with their eyes locked as they got right up into the others grill before being separated by their management teams.
Kelly was first up to the journalists following this event, telling them "this is going to be fun, I'll give that Hilary is a good fighter, you don't win a title without knowing what you are doing"
Then she flexes her right arm as she adds "but this is what Hilary has to look forwards to, I have been getting into better shape so I can knockout bytches and well these definitely look better on this body" Kelly cups her jugs as she winks.
While Hilary didn't look as happy as she came up to the journalists, saying "I've wanted a crack at Kelly for a while, she has a legendary career to call upon but that doesn't mean she has to be a bytch, sadly she clearly didn't get that message"
"I'm going to dismantled her in that ring, remind everyone why I am one of the best around here, I don't need the title to prove that" continues Hilary as she heads off in a bad mood.
Fight night; out comes Hilary with Melanie Sykes and Sophia Bush behind her, Hilary is heading down to the ring with her eyes focused straight ahead.
She is wearing a black sports bra, black trunks with a gold "Queenslayer" badge on the left leg, black gloves with gold thumbs, black shoes and her hair is braided.
After climbing into the ring; Hilary jogs over to her corner, where she poses with her arms in the air before turning from facing the crowd to warm up.
Now out comes Kelly with Melissa Messenger beside her, they are smirking as they head down the aisle, Kelly raises her arms above her head as she gets to the ring steps staring at Hilary.
She is wearing a navy blue sports bra, Union Jack patterned trunks, red gloves and blue shorts, her hair is tied into a fighting ponytail.
Stepping into the ring; Kelly poses at the center of the ring facing Hilary, their eyes already locked as Kelly continues to cockily grin at her, before Kelly heads to her corner to warm up.
Heading to the center of the ring; the fighters square up as the referee goes through their final instructions, eyes locked as Kelly looks in a confident mood compared to the death stare from Hilary.
They slam their gloves together when prompted, then they return to their corners ready to start 10 rounds of welterweight action.
It's Hilary coming out the gates the quicker with her jab digging into the top of Kelly's head, she is moving up on her toes as she is looking to keep that gap where she wants it.
Kelly times her attack; dipping under a jab to move inside to bump Hilary back with her left shoulder, landing an overhand right to the cheek of the taller fighter.
The Brit herds Hilary near the ropes; keeping in close to unload her power on her opponent as Rhoda tries to get push Brook away from her.
But when Hilary does get off the ropes; Kelly is back on the inside quickly enough as she isn't letting her off the hook so easily, body shots seem to be Kelly's main weapon so far.
Late in the round; Hilary manages to nudge Kelly back so she can unload a two punch combination to the face of the smaller fighter, allowing her to move into space to work from.
The bell rings with Kelly nodding to Melinda in her corner, while Hilary looks annoyed as she heads back to her own corner, knowing she can't let Kelly get top confident on the inside.
As the action begins; Hilary is throwing more punches in volume, making Kelly cover up more tighter as the American is controlling the distance better.
When Kelly tries to move to the inside; Hilary moves out the way before she lands two punches into the face of Brook.
Kelly is looking annoyed as she can't get in close to land more then glancing shots, Hilary is knocking her head back with straight shots, marking up the beautiful face of the Brit.
Hilary tries to step forwards with a straight; Kelly ducks down to dodge then counter with an uppercut to the body, followed by a left across the face of Rhoda.
It's Kelly finishing the round strong as she puts her head down, swinging hooks to the ribs of her opponent, forcing her back to the outside of the ring.
The round comes to a close with both women turning to head to their corners, this time it's Melanie smiling as Sophia bumps fists with Hilary.
Both fighters come out hard this round, Kelly is trying to step inside as Hilary moves on the outside of the ring, they are landing stiff single punches.
As Kelly moves forwards; Hilary sidesteps her and counters with a right to the side of Kelly's head, knocking the older fighter back a step as Hilary now drives forwards.
Sweat flies off the head of Kelly as she is pressed onto the ropes, she is forced to clinch up with Hilary, the two need the referee to step in as they grapple along the ropes.
Once apart they circle and trade shots, Hilary moves backwards when Kelly comes swinging in, showing impressive footwork to keep the gap where she wants it.
The bell rings to end another frustrating round for Kelly, who is getting a pep talk from Melinda as she looks down at the canvas, when she looks up though their is determination written on the Page 3 legends face.
Again that reach advantage for Hilary makes her look good early on, circling around the smaller fighter as she starts doubling and tripling her jab up.
Kelly starts to move her head a little more, then after feinting with her left; when she sees her opponent move towards her right she throws a right hook across her face.
That looks to have stunned Hilary; Kelly doesn't ask for an invite to come forwards, with straight shots knocking the head of the American backwards now.
As Hilary is backed into a corner; she tightens her guard, which makes Kelly switch up to the body to make her groan out loud.
Needing to clinch up; both strong women wrestle a bit, but Kelly's more compact body looks stronger as she presses Hilary into the corner, the referee soon enough breaks them up.
Kelly keeps in tight though when they are ordered to fight, not letting Hilary breath as she forces the taller woman to slug it out with her, something that definitely is suiting her better right now.
The round comes to an end with Kelly beginning to smile, probably more from relief of being able to do some real damage this round as Hilary's body has some marks on it now.
Kelly looks hungry for this win; moving more quickly forwards and willing to take a few clean shots to her face to close that gap sooner then she has in the past rounds.
A missed straight from Hilary earns her a straight on her lips, Kelly steps inside to bully her back onto the ropes, where more body shots come till Hilary can clinch up.
Once separated it is Hilary looking more defensive, reacting more to what her opponent is doing then setting the pace herself now.
With Kelly again able to move inside to work, getting several clean shots in before being shoved back to the outside by Rhoda, making Kelly yell "fight me bytch!"
It looks like she'll regret it as she goes to move in close range, Hilary moves out the way before landing a right close to the temple of Kelly, who blinks to clear her head as she looks stunned.
The dying seconds of the round sees Hilary open up on Kelly, bashing her backwards till the Brit ends up on the ropes, the Girls Friday corner roar as the bell rings, thinking that Hilary may have salvaged a terrible round with a strong finish.
Kelly returns to her corner shaking her head, Melinda looks to waken her up fully as she yells "don't take your eyes off the prize babe!"
As Kelly looks to get back inside; Hilary counters with an uppercut after dodging out the way, opening up Kelly to more punches that knocks her backwards.
Kelly misses with a wild right as Hilary dodges, THE COUNTER RIGHT ACROSS THE FACE OF KELLY ROCKS HER, WITH THREE MORE POWER PUNCHES LAND CLEAN TO KNOCK BROOK DOWN ON HER BACK!
Raising her fists in the air as she heads to a neutral corner, Hilary is all smiles as the count begins, 1...2...3.. Kelly shakes her head to try to clear it, 4...5...6...7.. Pulling herself to the ropes, when she tries to pull herself up using them, she falls back onto her backside, 8....9...10 that's all she wrote!
Winner Hilary Rhoda KO Round 6
Kissing her fist in celebration; Hilary looks proud of that knockout as she returns back to her corner to get a hug from Melanie and Sophia.
Meanwhile Kelly gets smelling salts under her nose to bring her around, she looks disappointed as you'd expect, staring at the canvas as Melinda tries to console her.
The referee helps Melinda get Kelly back to her corner so she can be cleaned up, Kelly tells Melinda "how could I be so stupid? I had the bytch" with Melinda telling her simply next time she won't make that mistake again.
Once the fighters are ready; they both come to the center of the ring, Hilary getting her hand raised with a big smile on her face.
All the while Kelly shakes her head, not happy with the result as she leaves the ring with Melinda, the two are chatting on the way back up the aisle, with them discussing the next fight already, Kelly defending her BBU JMDD title in a months time.
While Hilary is telling her corner team "this begins the start of me getting the title back, I am not playing second fiddle to the other fighters in the FCBA any longer" with Melanie looking glad to hear that.
Soon enough they leave the ring together; Hilary bumping fists with fans on her way up the aisle as she looks to be looking up the rankings, not backwards.
