Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: "I'm sick and tired of talking about Demetria Lovato... for the time being! It's time to knock some goofy blonde off her elite spot!", Nina Dobrev still feels enraged over losing the bantamweight title and wants to rejoin the hardware conversation as soon as possible. Beating her Canadian compatriots Laura Vandervoort and Shay Mitchell didn't exactly calm her down especially that current 120 lbs champion is none other than Bella Thorne whom she battled a couple of times last season - with split results. "Let's face it, Bella knows I'm still here! We're due a rubber match but I can wait my turn. I'm still Top 5 when it comes to available talent so let's don't make this too difficult, shall we?"
Meanwhile Elizabeth Olsen feels like she's been overlooked for way too long. Her only title challenge happened so long ago (October 2014) some fans don't even remember it anymore. She's fought a very busy schedule this season already but just couldn't pass on the opportunity of facing former bantamweight champion tonight: "When I beat Nina, I'll be stalking Bella Thorne for that title belt soon! It's really a given! Enough with all these big shot stables, I came here to carry Fates into the promise land and nobody's gonna stop me, even that Bulgarian... Canadian.. whatever... bimbo!"
Nina Dobrev wears a red sports bra with black trim, black hotpants & red gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a sleek ponytail. Elizabeth Olsen wears a grey sports bra with yellow trim, matching hotpants & yellow gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a curled ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the bantamweight division.
Both girls jump on the slugging route as elite ambitions come to the fore and some fans believe this bout won't last long as Elizabeth bursts through the brunette's high guard and wobbles her to the side with a nasty hooking combo on the nose. Nina stumbles forward and takes another big hit on the jaw that allows Olsen to dominate the close range action. She rips more uppercuts on target before Nina can gather her thoughts and once she does, she's hugging the ropes already with Elizabeth wrecking her face inside & out! Huh! Brutal jabbing rally renders Dobrev's guard irreleant and Olsen pushes for immdiate reward as she traps the former champion under a barrage of shots that Nina simply can't embrace here at all! She sinks on jelly knees and caves behind a deep earmuff but Elizabeth still shatters her exposed tummy and pierces the solar plexus along the way sending the brunette into spasms. Another belter on the liver area raises the moaning volume before a nasty uppercut on the jaw DROPS DOBREV ONTO HER KNEES!!! Uh-oh!! Major upset on the cards here as Nina barely recovers from the knockdown at eight sporting some misty eyes. She looks HURT but the clock runs out immediately after the command and Olsen just can't finish the clearly vulnerable opponent off in time!
Elizabeth is upset she was denied a famous KO1 victory and begins stalking the subdued brunette from the word go here. Meanwhile Nina takes a page out of Minka Kelly's book of bendy defense and flat out avoids slugging it right back into the blonde's face! That's not a good look if you want to catch Bella Thorne's attention but suits the Fates camp very well instead! Elizabeth is glued onto the high guard even though she struggles to dissect it like she did in the opener and the quick switch downstairs doesn't work either since Nina's still too fast on her feet. However that's a proper bullying charge that makes Dobrev look second-best as she loops half-hearted response during her extended retreat. She avoids getting trapped on the ropes thanks to her supreme mobility but fuels Olsen's verbal taunting as the crowd sides with the Fates fighter as well.
Rounds 3 & 4:
Dobrev remains bothered by that nasty knockdown in the opener and Elizabeth digs more single punches into her face to stay on top of every exchange. Nina dekes on her feet and stays out of further trouble for a while but she's not winning the judges' support by bouncing off the blonde's ribcage with mere single punches. She belts Olsen on the belly button half-way thru the third but eats a brutal uppercut again and prefers to deliver her shots from mid-range while Elizabeth methodically works the head-hunting assault in full knowledge of having the brunette spooked (...) More of the same in the fourth, Dobrev's inital jabbing approach is blocked off and the single punches to the body make no impression on Olsen whatsoever. However the blonde begins to lose her aerial precision down the stretch as Nina's lithe moves wear her aggression out. Elizabeth gets glued to the spot with a wicked hook on the left eye before Nina barges into her boobs to secure a meaningful contact. She rips more uppercuts on target to make the blonde wince in pain as the fourth round ends with both women wrestling for supremacy along the ropes.
Elizabeth tears a small gash over Nina's left eye early in the fifth and jumps into another head-hunting blast that has the former champion reeling again. Nina tries to swing back over the top but can't find her balance right and gets picked off on the fly with Olsen suddenly getting desperate to land a proper haymaker. She misses in her pursuit as a brief chaos ensues thereafter with Nina belting her across the boobs to restore boxing order. Another wild hook tags the blonde's chin and allows Dobrev to push for a comeback; she beats the fellow actress with a right-on-right that spins Elizabeth onto the ropes and this time she remains there with Nina clocking her on the boobs and plugging extra tummy to close out the round. Ugh! Olsen shoves her away at the bell but she's got more reasons to be upset now.
Blonde's desperate pursuit to regain command meets the supreme footwork again and Nina lets Olsen to blow her fuse early before tackling her to the body with brutally effective precision. Elizabeth gets stuffed on the solar plexus and loses a quick jug muggin' dispute with Dobrev rising to the task and blasting the hitherto dominant girl across the chest. That's a bad look for someone who covered the Bella twins not so long ago but Nina's in no love lost mode as she tags the blonde's chin repeatedly to drop her behind a lenghty earmuff in the center of the ring. She makes progress thumping Elizabeth on the body and backs her onto the ropes where she outslugs her target with Olsen seeking a haymaker finish herself. However it's Dobrev who lands the biggest punch of the exchange and bursts her rival's nostrils before another belter nails the ailing blonde on the liver area and folds her into spasms right at the bell.
Nina rips another cross onto Elizabeth's nose and suddenly there's some visible damage as the blonde begins to leak blood while the brunette camps into her guts and shatters the low guard pounding away in furious fashion! All the early juice is gone from Olsen's tank as she gets stuck on her heels and misfires badly over the top, she bounces off the top of Nina's forehead and gets NAILED on the nose again which drops her butt-in-ropes when the former champion channels the jug muggin' route. Dobrev rains punches like skittles with Olsen wilting under the barrage before a plugging double on the solar plexus pulls the plug on the blonde's resistance. Elizabeth stumbles into spasms and drops her gloves below her breasts so Nina has a free shot upstairs... she SMOKES the blonde with a brutal right cross on the nose and OLSEN CRASHES ONTO HER SIDE with eyes closed to rise no more!!! Ugh, that's a bad one indeed! KO7 Nina Dobrev in come-from-behind fashion!!!
AFTER: Nina claims a valuable scalp here tonight but she languished on the scorecards for majority of the fight and was in fact still behind when she knocked Elizabeth out! This won't back her championship case at all and she knows it: "Well, I never said this would be an easy test! She caught me off guard in the opener but I rallied back alright! Okay, so maybe I need another good win or two... this was an ugly win but I'll take it! I'm still your favorite Badass! Liz is maybe the most talented of all these Olsen girls but she's just not good enough to beat me yet. That's not my problem!"
Official Result: Nina Dobrev def. Elizabeth Olsen KO7.
