Cheryl Cole vs Ksenia Solo
(Lioness Club vs FCBA Independent)
(29-10, 29 KO vs 3-8, 3 KO)
Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Cheryl Cole kicked off a P4P supremacy battle versus Jenna Coleman back on the other side of the Atlantic last month but she can't allow her FCBA stock to drop any further which means the "best Latvian fighter ever" Ksenia Solo gets a rare opportunity to feature on the PPV landscape. She wants to make the most of this and vows to complete Cheryl's miserable season by "knocking her brains OUT"!!!
Meanwhile Cheryl appears to be a little distracted in the build-up which requires extra attention from Lioness trainer Eva Mendes who dismisses the idea of sending the Geordie singer back to Europe on permanent basis: "Look, Cheryl's been quiet in the media lately but taking that Jenna C. series remains of the utmost importance! No worries, we won't underestimate Ksenia here and her Eastern-European style of boxing has long lost the edge! Let's just enjoy the elite fighter at work and silence all the critics! Cheryl remains a key part of the Lioness attack and she's gonna prove it tonight!"
Cheryl Cole wears a black bikini top, leopard print panties & red gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a half-up ponytail. Ksenia Solo wears a crimson bikini set & white gloves. Long black hair with bangs tied in a custom ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Cheryl's pre-fight distraction lingers on during the opening round as she's shockingly ineffective and gets upstaged by the fellow brunette in the otherwise comfortable slugging route. Ksenia beats the Geordie singer punch for punch and sticks her mitts into her cheeks repeatedly before a nasty blow in the chest renders the older girl vunerable. Ksenia gets vocal as she thumps her foe onto the ropes and it's all coming apart for Cole early on as she drops her guard too low and has the Latvian babe thumping easy assault straight up the chimney. Chezza gets spun to the side and begins to gurgle in pain while Solo sticks to her point-blank range attack and tears a small gash under the right eye in the process. Cheryl manages to deploy the earmuff cover come the final minute but she's getting beat up like a cheap ragdoll here which further underlines how poor the entire 2019 season has been for the Geordie stunner. Least Ksenia cares about this as she plugs a belting double on the liver area to leave the older brunette aching in visible pain at the bell.
Ksenia must regret her lenghty spell on the sidelines following that mighty opening round but her courage is stymied during another feisty exchange as Chezza storms back into contention with a brutally effective head-hunting blast. It's one thing to suffer at the hands of Jenna Coleman but Ksenia is one of these free agents who struggle when forced to battle pure wrath from a notorious slugger like Cole. The back & forth tangle leaves the Latvian babe with a busted up upper lip come the one-minute mark before a fateful swing shoots over Cheryl's head and allows her to tackle the exposed chin from the inside. Ksenia makes a vintage error of lowering her left arm and she gets popped on the jaw a couple of times straight away; Chezza steps up and clips the jugs via the uppercut route as well and scythes the fellow brunette with a right cross on the nose that drops Solo butt-in-ropes for remainder of the round. Ksenia is unable to break away from the trap and soaks up more swelling on her lips as Cole rattles her from both flanks to complete her recovery.
Another slugging tangle earns Solo more swelling on the mouth and some fans believe her lips will burst open soon enough as Cheryl uses them as target practice to drop the younger brunette into loud spasms literally thirty seconds into the action. Ksenia's past dancing background is laid to waste she remains glued to the spot and somehow tries to trounce Chezza's head-hunting blast. She can't match the singer's intensity though and wobbles to the side before Cheryl slams a left hook on the temple and drives another vicious shot on the mouth. Uh-oh!! Ksenia sinks into jelly knees mode and just can't lock her mitts in tact when the Geordie stunner SMOKES her with one hook on the nose too many... DOWN GOES THE LATVIA'S FINEST!!! Solo crumbles on the spot as the legs go away and she quickly rolls onto her left side with eyes closed... and that's all she wrote, folks! KO3 Cheryl Cole!!!
AFTER: Cheryl gives Eva Mendes a lenghty stare while having her gloves removed and she looks quite upset even in victory but this result doesn't cure all her current problems especially with Jenna Coleman waiting to resume the bitter rivalry on the other side of the pond next month. However the fans are pleased enough with the Geordie Power coming to the fore again and the notorious singer allows herself a wry smile during the verdict announcement. She barges into Ksenia afterwards and suggests a lip filling procedure mocking the extremely swollen shape of the Latvian's mouth. All is good again, huh?
Solo looked more than serviceable when she was allowed to run the fight from the front but the mediocre punching resistance crippled her performance and that's a common weakness among all these free agents. Even a struggling Cheryl managed to expose it and took a valuable victory home which in turn relegates Ksenia into a classic journeywoman path going forward.
Official Result: Cheryl Cole def. Ksenia Solo KO3.
