Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: "I rarely agree with Tess Valmore but she's damn right here. This bout in a complete mismatch!", Jessica Lowndes doesn't consider breaking sweat tonight as she squares up versus a mysterious teenager from Cleveland, Ohio - Isabela Moner... err.. make that Isabela Merced. "Oh yeah, this kid has done nothing significant and she's changed her stage name already! WTF? It's not even some fancy nickname.. whatever! She beat up Ariana Grande.. sheeshh... everyone beats Ariana Grande in FCBA! I feel like I'm wasting my time here but Eva Mendes told me I need to get used to fighting younger opponents now. Geez, I'm only 31 years old, people! Get a grip!"
Meanwhile GBS enforces a silenzio stampa policy as Daisy Fuentes and her crew realizes Isabela is a heavy underdog coming into this fight: "We didn't need Tractorpull throwing us under the bus like that! Whatever. Isabela will do all the talking with her gloves and hopefully shuts this arrogant Canadian tramp once and for all".
Jessica Lowndes wears a turquoise bikini set & black gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a custom ponytail. Isabela Merced wears a red crop top, matching hotpants & white gloves. Shoulder-lenght dark brown hair straight. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
The Lioness Alpha wants to stamp her authority on the action ASAP and sends a jabbing flurry straight up the middle which makes Isabela realize she's up for a proper elite test here. Lowndes shows no signs of second guessing Moner's potential and buries her under a steady dose of leather; she tries to pound her onto the ropes but suddenly eats a nasty cross hook on the nose and the teenager takes over the power striking supply! Hello? Did Isabela read the script? Guess not as she beats Jessica with her own slugging menace and outworks her in the center of the ring. Lowndes refuses to back off and wants to outslug the GBS youngster but eats another scything cross on the nose and wobbles to the side just before the bell. Huh! Even LCA coach Eva Mendes gives the GBS corner a long look after that one.
Jessica applies the jabbing pressure again and this time the teenager has to suck it up. Several crisp punches slice the high-guard and send Moner reeling before she can properly respond over the top. That's more like this fight was supposed to happen - with Lowndes bouncing the youngster around the ring and stalking her with a sustained leather assault. Isabela soaks up a couple of heavy hits and yelps in visible discomfort but she owns the superior mobility down the stretch and renders the Canadian's chase futile. However the overall impression is set and Lowndes taunts her foe into showing some guts here albeit Moner refuses to engage in high-risk slugging during the final stretch.
More of the same in the third, Jessica's shear volume of leather leaves Isabela hanging back and unable to find the slugging response. GBS coach Daisy Fuentes gets vocal when the Canadian thumps the teenager butt-in-ropes just past the one-minute mark but Isabela just can't punch herself out of the hole here and gets hammered from both flanks. Lowndes almost takes the looming knockdown for granted as she yells at the subdued girl before blasting a cruel hook on the mouth... Moner's high-guard collapses upon repeated impact but she fires back and tags the Lioness brunette on the boobs before a seemingly wayward follow up nails the older girl on the nose. Ugh! Jessica is furious and almost punches the Latina in the groin before setting up another head-hunting flurry that leaves Moner shrieking her way right until the bell - but she's avoided going down here and that's a small victory alone for the underdog.
Lowndes rolls out with more head-hunting venom but she just can't close the teenager down and wastes energy in a largely futile pursuit. It's not about out-boxing the youngster here, it's about a total destruction but the GBS crew seems unfazed by defaulting the style points as Moner keeps biding her time in mid-distance. She's close to triggering the Canadian's short fuse anyway and Lowndes seemingly wants to knock her down with a single punch as she works the right hand back & forth... Moner steers away from the corner and leaps forward just as Jessica was trying to loop another shot and gets there first against the odds. Big hook nails Lowndes on the mouth and wobbles her into a nasty follow up on the solar plexus! That was delivered straight on target and even a JMD-veteran like Jessica felt that impact. Isabela duly pounds her in the exposed midsection thereafter and silences the LCA fanbase with more pesky harpoons in the final minute as Lowndes loses her mojo wholesale.
Another furious jabbing start from the Lioness Alpha but Isabela ducks underneath the series and peppers the ribcage to halt the older brunette's progress. Both girls settle in the close range which is rare for Moner tonight but she tries her jug muggin' skills and catches the Canadian by surprise. Jessica storms back and nails the teenager with a double combo on the mouth; she then resumes control by outworking Moner from both flanks and backs her onto the ropes where she drops the body assault hammer. Isabela refuses to lay down though and carries a left hook into Jessica's face before she tags her chin with a couple of chaotic uppercuts. Lowndes steps back and swings with conviction but misses and gets SHOCKED FROM THE INSIDE as Moner plugs a nasty right into her breasts and folds her forward with a whimper. Jessica bumps off Moner's shoulder and turns just as the teenager SMOKES her with a right hook on the temple... DOWN GOES LOWNDES!!! Isabela leaps away from the ropes and almost trips over the fallen opponent as the ref is forced to start the count much to Eva Mendes' dismay! Uh-oh!!! The clock runs down at eight and the proud Canadian is saved by the bell; she's up at seven but looks a little woozy and perhaps that would have warranted a stoppage if only there was more time left. Uh-oh! The underdog smells the upset though!
Jessica refuses to hassle Isabela like she did all night but finds herself pounded like crazy in the opening minute as the GBS brunette rains punches like skittles on Daisy Fuentes' orders! Jessica is truly getting the Ariana Grande treatment as she struggles to recover from that knockdown late in the fifth and Moner is not scared to make the most of her golden opportunity to put her away! She splits the high-guard with ease and intends to back the ailing Canadian onto the ropes where she can wreck her for keeps; Jessica tries to bounce away into safety but trips over her own feet and gets SMOKED by another brutal hook on the nose which cripples her into spasms. Isabela screams out as she delivers the next punch and bangs her rival on the nose before she beats a half-hearted looping effort and tears a small gash over Jessica's left eye. Uh-oh!!! Lowndes drops her gloves and bounces off the ropes with eyes-haf closed and Moner just SMOKES HER ONTO THE ORBIT with a booming uppercut moments later!!! DOWN GOES THE LIONESS ALPHA!!! Jessica rolls onto her side with eyes closed but goes all numb moments later and the referee waves the count off!!! KO6 Isabela Moner in Upset of the Month fashion!!!
AFTER: Shocking result here as even the GBS entourage can't quite embrace the magnitude of this performance! Huh! May has been a bad month for Tractorpull Magazine and it doesn't get any better tonight as Isabela makes a mockery of Tess Valmore's mismatch prediction! Grim faces in the LCA corner as Eva Mendes doesn't even bother to check what's up with Jessica but engages in a shouting match with Daisy Fuentes instead. And there's your winner Isabela Moner looking as stunned as anyone inside the arena. She winks back to the camera and tries to climb the ropes but gets shoved by a charging Eva Mendes who wants to get up close and personal with Daisy Fuentes after all. Both veteran Latinas are separated by the referee and only then Isabela can dwell on her success as she poses for a photo with her foot planted on fallen Jessica's hip. The Lioness Alpha has been smoked into near unconsciousness and this photo quickly sends shockwaves on social media as Isabela Moner.. err. Merced(?) announces her arrival onto the contending scene. She's no longer the girl who beat up the lacklustre Ariana Grande, she's got a real elite scalp on her resume now! Cleveland truly rocks!
