Sandra Kubicka vs Kaia Gerber (5-1, 5 KO vs 4-1, 4 KO) Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Polish model Sandra Kubicka looks beyond tonight's contest as she's scheduled to fight Daniela Ruah on the Internetional Cup in ten days time but ESPN's Erin Andrews warns her not to underestimate the mysterious Kaia Gerber or else the dress rehearsal could go awry fast! Both girls own a similar record but haven't beaten any of the elite opponents thus far so this is also one of these fights that offers extra exposure for both of them.
Kaia's mother Cindy Crawford recently returned to active competition under the cougar division banner and knocked out fellow 90s topmodel Daisy Fuentes which is clearly linked to her daughter's aspiring boxing career. The Illinois stunner is also present ringside tonight to help Kaia navigate the Polish model who in turn brings veteran compatriot Joanna Krupa as her supervisor.
Sandra Kubicka wears a burgundy crop top with yellow trim, matching panties & silver gloves. Long dyed blonde hair tied in a curled ponytail. Kaia Gerber wears an orange one-piece swimsuit & black gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a high ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the lightweight division.
Round 1: Sandra blasts out of the gate and applies the 'In Yo Face' slugging drill that stuns Kaia to the point even momma Cindy is upset after like 20 seconds! Huh! Sandra plucks one quick strike after another and seemingly wants to rearrange the brunette's face inside the opening minute; Kaia is not ready for such a swarming mayhem and bails out into mid-distance while the blonde keeps swinging at her even though her precision goes away down the stretch. A spooked rival is still good for business and the judges have little room to give Gerber any credit here as she bounces around on her toes while Sandra does all the punching - including a wild swing after the bell that catches the American flat on the nose and makes her grunt in visible pain! That's a frickin' whitewash, people!
Round 2: Cindy Crawford literally shoves Kaia out of her corner to start the second and Kubicka is all over her again jabbing up the middle and looking to send the American on her reeling way again... not so fast! Kaia swings over the top and nails the Polish model on the double before she bursts into her boobs and makes her scream out in shock. Huh! Didn't see that coming? Gerber flicks a powerful hook on the temple and pays back the favor as she lashes out at the blonde and backs her onto the ropes where she finds the speed dial range and outworks the older girl before thumping a left hook on the liver area. Kubicka loses her footing and slides against the turnbuckle but Kaia still cleans out her tummy to complete a shocking comeback! Guess this teenager is not afraid to dish out the beef after all?
Round 3: More of the same in the third, crash course meeting in the center of the ring leaves both girls throwing tons of leather at each other before one punch wobbles Sandra on her heels and allows Kaia to beat her up in point-blank range! Oh yes, momma Cindy likes that! Kaia stuns the blonde with a dose of jug muggin' wrath and pounds her back to the ropes where she keeps punishing the older model to the body; Sandra struggles to stretch her elbows and applies a clinching delay but Gerber shouts in her face and breaks free to forge ahead even more with a thumping combo on the lips that leaves them swollen come the bell. Sandra stumbles forward with a whimper and almost eats a late hook in the groin as the ref has to pull the American away with Cindy Crawford almost face-planting onto the ring as she can't hide her joy over Kaia's heroics the last six minutes here!
Round 4: Sandra refuses to back off from the slugging plan and one can only wonder if Joanna Krupa's advice is actually correct. Kaia likes it enough she goes for the same route so both models trade vicious blows like wannabe flyweight upstarts during the opening minute before a looping hook sends Gerber reeling onto the ropes. Huh! She bails out just as the blonde sends a piledriver in over her shoulder but fails to mount immediate response and yields more real estate as the Polish model bumps her onto the opposite side of the ring. She blasts the brunette on the lips but eats an equally hard shot on the nose and struggles to follow through which gives Gerber a chance for respite. Both girls swing back at it shortly afterwards before an accidental clash of heads leads into a lenghty clinch as Kubicka still drives the teenager onto the ropes and has to be dragged away by the ref come the bell.
Round 5: Back & forth we go as the aerial bombs crash into Kaia's face at first before she loops a right hook into Sandra's nose and bursts her nostrils into a seeping trouble, Uh-oh! "U bytch!", Sandra swings over the top but misses and gets picked off from the inside as Gerber tags her on the chin a couple of times and lands another brutal hook on the wounded nose. Kubicka drops her mitts and stumbles to the side while Kaia leaps after her and SMOKES her with a wicked piledriver on the nose one more time.. "Oi, gawd!", Sandra's legs give way on the spot and SHE SLIDES DOWN ON HER BACK with eyes closed as Joanna Krupa screams out in agony: "Dawaj, no dawaj!" Meanwhile Kaia struts back to momma Cindy and the two brunettes exchange a warm hug as the merciless count leaves Kubicka counting stars. IT IS OVER!!! KO5 Kaia Gerber in rip-roaring fashion!!!
AFTER: "Stupid kid can frickin' punch!", Joanna Krupa throws a towel over at the mother & daughter tandem in the opposite corner before attending the fallen compatriot who has barely escaped getting knocked out cold! So much for that Internantional Cup dress rehearsal as Sandra nurses a busted up nose and must soak up Cindy & Kaia taking selfies with her sitting in the background! "No way Daniela Ruah can repeat that, no frickin' way!", she mumbles to herself as Kaia takes extra pictures of her for the family scrapbook. Guess the mysterious teenager will be turning more heads sooner rather than later?
Official Result: Kaia Gerber def. Sandra Kubicka KO5.
Selena Gomez vs Shay Mitchell (Lioness Club of America vs Pretty Little Punchers, Inc.) (31-19, 28 KO vs 29-28, 27 KO) Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Selena Gomez gets another crack at the Pretty Little Liars cast members having fought Ashley Benson and Lucy Hale when she was down at flyweight before but she might have just missed Shay Mitchell at her absolute worst. The Canadian stunner crawled through 2019 season with a miserable 1-7 record but bounced back in style knocking out both Elizabeth Olsen & Kara Killmer earlier this year:
"Yeah, I'm back! I suppose Selena reached out for a low-hanging fruit but she is dead wrong! I'm still as tough as they come! My schedule was uber-tough last year but I'm right where I truly belong now! Selena made some noise down at 110 lbs but she's punching waaaay above her weight here!" (giggles).
Selena ignores the vibe she should have stayed at flyweight and claims weight-cutting ordeal was becoming too draining for her to keep bouncing off the conditioning wall: "Look, I'm not that Waverley Place teenager anymore! Hell, Vanessa Hudgens is over 30 years old herself! Man, where did all that time go away? Okay, I sound like an old-timer but I can't be stuck in the mud forever! I'm like the best fighter who never won a god damn FCBA title! It's time to change that sooner rather than later!"
Selena Gomez wears a turquoise bikini set with white trim & black gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a sleek ponytail. Shay Mitchell wears a yellow crop top, red hotpants & brown gloves. Long black hair tied in a braid. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the bantamweight division.
Round 1: Selena jumps into a high-octane jabbing assault which is supposed to catch the Canadian off guard but Shay finds her slugging range and tags the American on the nose before blasting her on the belly button which makes the younger woman squeal in pain! Huh! Shay drives her mitts into the exposed tummy thereafter and backs the stunned Gomey onto the ropes where more pesky hits drill her midsection only for the clinch to come to her rescue! Mitchell shakes the fellow brunette off though and whacks her up the middle securing a double uppercut connection on the chin that leaves Selena shaky at the bell.
Round 2: More jabbing menace from both sides but this time the precision goes away and the girls cut thin air before Selena lands a nice hook on the temple that wobbles Mitchell backwards. The PLP brunette tries to push off her heels but fails to find her range and Gomez knocks her about with more pesky jabs. She tries to thump her onto the ropes but gets clinched herself and spun to the side as Shay drives another good harpoon into the ribcage. Selena strikes back and blasts an overhand on the nose before a wild uppercut tags the Canadian on the nose and makes her think better off it.
Round 3: Shay pulls ahead with a jabbing steam and outworks the otherwise committed Selena who's unable to shake the older brunette off and eats a nasty double on each temple before Mitchell wobbles her backwards with an uppercut stinger. Selena tries to bounce back but is simply too slow for the charging foe and eats a scything cross on the nose as Shay barks in her efforts to cash in on the head-hunting opportunity. She dissects Selena's high guard and pounds her onto the ropes where she drills the exposed tummy as Gomez tails off behind a desperate earmuff. Three strikes on the bounce and Gomez scowls in pain as Shay NAILS her with a brutal uppercut on the nose THAT SENDS THE AMERICAN DOWN on the spot! Big time punch floors Selena who takes her time down on all fours and looks vunerable even when she climbs back up at eight. Shay wants to finish her off like right now but the clock runs out before she finds another jackhammer to put the icing on the cake.
Round 4: Selena is clearly rattled by the knockdown and spends majority of the round in desperate avoidance while Shay taunts her verbally once her initial jabbing plans misses the target. Uh-oh! The PLP stunner is very much back after a dismal 2019 season and traps Selena along the ropes where the spooked prey simply has to respond in a slugging fashion. She cracks a couple of good shots but Mitchell is glued into her face and tries to find that monster haymaker again. She skims off the top of Gomez's forehead too often though and gets clinched into safety as the Lioness coach Eva Mendes looks very worried in the corner.
Rounds 5 & 6: Shay builds on her advantage and stalks the seemingly vulnerable opponent in back & forth fashion before finding her comfort zone punching the younger brunette in the guts. Selena slumps into a clinching struggle far too often to make a proper comeback but she slows down Mitchell's progress and lands a good combo on the liver area to sign off the fifth. She roars back into the Canadian's midsection in the sixth after another phone booth wrestling drains Shay out and spins her onto the ropes where an accidental head-butt leaves the older woman scowling. Shay plugs an uppercut drive into Selena's breasts but eats a nasty overhand on the brow ridge and wobbles into a jabbing response which snaps her head back & forth allowing Gomez to steal the round in the closing stages.
Round 7: Shay looks a little gassed now but she still holds a clear lead on the cards; Selena pounces on her with more jabbing menace and begins to win all these mid-ring exchanges when she flicks another double on the swollen brow ridge that suddenly becomes a problem for the older brunette. Mitchell drops the head-hunting plan and blows it into Selena's midriff again but gets outmuscled in the phone booth and eats a brutal hook on the solar plexus which spins her onto the turnbuckle. Ugh! She tries to swing back but Gomez gets there first and tears a bloody gash over the swollen eye. Uh-oh! Mitchell slumps into spasms right there in the corner and Selena gallops into her ribcage to leave the Canadian yelping in pain come the bell.
Round 8: Shay is simply furious here and decides not to protect the scorecards but she runs into an overhand buzzsaw that nails her on the wounded brow ridge. She turns to the other side trying to protect the area but then eats a crippling hook on the solar plexus and turns back into a brutal uppercut on the chin!!! MITCHELL IS HURT!!! She wobbles forward with a loud whimper only to get drilled by another big uppercut on the jaw THAT SENDS HER CRASHING DOWN ON HER BACKSIDE moments later!!! Ugh! Shay hits the deck hard and has a tough time getting up! She fails at the first attempt and barely defies gravity at the second effort but suddenly there's more blood pouring from the wounded brow ridge and the ref shockingly - or not - waves the bout OFF!!! TKO8 Selena Gomez in come-from-behind fashion!!!
AFTER: Shay stumbles back to the ref's arms and tries not to burst into tears while Selena blows her a kiss and turns back to coach Eva Mendes: "So much for this witch sending me back to flyweight! We got some power here!"
It's tough to say whether Selena has enough staying power to make a run at the bantamweight straps anytime soon but she's determined to make it work. Meanwhile it's a tough loss for the PLP entourage as Shay has seemingly shaken off the terrible 2019 vibes and looked set to blow Gomez away until she run into fitness issues and suffered a bad cut on the eye that derailed her hitherto dominant afternoon.
Official Result: Selena Gomez def. Shay Mitchell TKO8.
Brooklyn Decker vs Robyn Lawley (Lioness Club of America vs FCBA Independent) (48-17, 36 KO vs 11-7, 11 KO) Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: "This bytch is huge but I'm still gonna take her down!", Brooklyn Decker dismisses the idea that booking a fight versus someone north of 180 lbs is bad for business. "This ain't the Asylum, folks! I'm done with the Rytters and Schillings of this world! My goal is to become an unified welterweight champion and Robyn might well be a Top 5 free agent out there! She's huge but that means she will crash down harder than most!" (giggles).
Meanwhile Robyn Lawley realizes she's getting picked on ever since Punchaholics Anonymous closed its doors: "It's funny. When I had management these bimbos were scared to fight me! And now I'm supposed to be a platform for their championship ambitions? Get real! Just because I'm a free agent it doesn't mean I can't knock bimbos like Brooklyn OUT!"
Brooklyn Decker wears an orange bikini set & black gloves. Long blonde hair wrapped in a loose bun at the back of her head. Robyn Lawley wears an orange & violet swimsuit & silver gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a sleek ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds at 185 lbs catchweight.
Round 1: Both girls have full confidence in their power supply which leads into a back & forth slugging of the single-punch nature. Brooklyn lands a couple of good shots on the brunette's chin but Robyn only laughs them off and swings back with a noticeable zip. She forces Brooklyn on the run down the stretch as maybe the Ohio native doesn't look forward to testing that middleweight power with her face! However Robyn can't really close her down and looks a little too desperate in her otherwise futile pursuit. Meanwhile Decker loops a half-hearted overhand response as she refuses to fully engage in her execution, this allows Lawley to burst into giggles at the bell.
Round 2: Robyn lands the big punch on the blonde's jaw and wobbles her backwards upon impact before she drills the exposed liver area and suddenly that quick burst of pace has Decker reeling on the spot. She swings back straight into the brunette's mouth but the Aussie model cracks a left hook on the brow ridge that makes Brooklyn think better off it. Same problem for Lawley though, she's not quick enough on her feet to take full advantage of Decker's wobbly presence and wastes significant effort while only grazing the American's flesh. When she finally tracks her down, Brooklyn clinches her into safety and bumps in jug-to-jug contact before a late drill on the navel makes the Aussie grunt come the bell.
Round 3: Lawley fires back over the top but Brooklyn comes in low and blasts the heavier woman across the tummy before dropping an uppercut double in JMD fashion! Ugh! Robyn wobbles back with a loud whimper and fails to register a left hook crashing into her temple moments later. Ugh on the double! Brunette wobbles to the side and can't raise her arms fast enough as Brooklyn lands another big hook on the mouth!!! DOWN GOES LAWLEY!!! How about that? The bigger they are, the harder they fall? Robyn gets taken down by gravity as she's unable to handle Decker's power but she's back up at five and claims she slipped on a wet patch. Big bull right here? She tries to swing right back at the Ohio model but meets another scything double on the mouth which triggers the blonde's jabbing wrath that shuts the Aussie down along the ropes for remainder of the round instead.
Round 4: Brooklyn feels more comfortable bouncing into the Aussie foe straight up but Robyn responds over the top and nails the blonde on the nose before she drives an uppercut into her chest. Decker follows through on the nose as some heavy hits rattle the two vixens before a missed swing from the older model leaves her reeling when Lawley blasts a right cross on the chin. Ugh! Robyn's power can unsettle a former champion with a single punch which forces Decker to abandon the slugging plan for a while as Robyn works the longer range to finally back her onto the ropes. For once Brooklyn's superior footwork doesn't bail her out of trouble and it gets worse come the final minute when Lawley plugs her in the rack to open up a gaping hole in a hitherto stubborn defense. Brooklyn scores a left hook on the eye but gets smacked on the windpipe moments later and wobbles forward just as Robyn NAILS her with a big right uppercut on the chin! BLONDE GIRL DOWN!!! Brooklyn flies onto the turnbuckle and crashes down on all fours after a wild bounce; Lawley punches the air in delight but barks in anger when the bell saves the blonde at the six count with Brooklyn still looking rattled during the interval.
Round 5: Lawley is full pursuit mode now but Decker waltzes away from danger repeatedly in the opening minute before she applies the counter-punching response. Robyn grazes her flesh in head-hunting style but lacks that single big punch even though the older model looks terribly desperate in avoidance. Some verbal taunts come to the fore but when Robyn finally lands the promising combo into the blonde's mouth, she gets blasted on the breadbasket and fails to register a nasty hook on the boobs which springs Decker back to life. A thumping hook bursts the blonde's lips into a swollen disarray regardless but Lawley is stunned to learn she hasn't rattled the older model at all and has to duck underneath a late jabbing flurry with Brooklyn refusing to back off here.
Round 6: Punch-for-punch exchange threatens to burst one of these women to flames sooner rather than later but Robyn finally channels her aggression to the point she can lash out at the fellow model from point-blank range UNTIL she gets drilled with a vicious hook on the liver that bends her to the side with a whimper. She tries to weave back to the other side but loses her footing and eats a brutal hook on the mouth before Brooklyn rifles another gut shot that folds the Aussie into a crunching uppercut on the jaw! BOOM!!! Robyn yells out in pain as her legs give way and SHE COLLAPSES DOWN AT THE BLONDE'S FEET in a crowd-silencing fashion!!! Talk about applying some power, folks! Brooklyn struts back to her corner and refuses to look at the floored brunette who tries to beat the count but is simply too dazed to make it happen. She gets up on one knee before she wobbles onto all fours again and the next attempt is foiled by a loud ...TEN... YER OUT!!! scream from the man in charge!!! KO6 Brooklyn Decker!!!
AFTER: "Is it ovaaarrr? Like ovaaa...??", Robyn tries to catch her breath while pleading to the ref she's still got time but of course she doesn't! Brooklyn turns back to her and twerks her assets while coach Claudia Schiffer hugs her from behind and tries to send her way back to collect the trophy aka the middleweight behemoth turned into a confused mess! Brooklyn does the honor and lifts Robyn up to her feet only to deliver a Walk of Shame before seeting in her ear: "Better luck next time, bytch". She shoves the Aussie model face first into the ropes and lets her slide face down which triggers even more noise inside the arena.
What next for the 21st Century Goddess? The Battle of Ohio 2.0 remains in limbo after Adrianne Palicki claimed the unified welterweight title back in February but this is Brooklyn's main goal as well so let's see if the other Buckeye woman can ignore the otherwise obvious target for her next defense?
Official Result: Brooklyn Decker def. Robyn Lawley KO6.
