Chloe Grace Moretz vs Dove Cameron
(Lioness Club of America vs FCBA Independent)
(10-12, 10 KO vs 4-10, 4 KO)
Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: That elusive contract Chloe Moretz signed with Lioness Club of America earlier this year makes Dove Cameron think "What could have been?" and that's probably gonna remain the story of her FCBA career IF she doesn't start to rack up wins soon! On the other hand Chloe's overall record sits below .500 but she comes into this fight having won four straight while Dove was handed the shortest of all short ends of the stick getting pounded by Hall of Famer Michelle Williams TWICE and the in-form Avril Lavigne to boot. An otherwise tough loss to Madison Pettis feels like a mercy killing at this point. Can Dove really upstage the fellow blonde tonight? Both Chloe and her coach Eva Mendes say they're done with losing fights to no-names and that's a bad sign for Miss Cameron indeed!
Chloe Grace Moretz wears a black crop top, matching hotpants & red gloves. Long blonde hair wrapped in a double braid at the back of her head. Dove Cameron wears a white crop top, brown hip-huggers & yellow gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a half-up ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
No messing around in the early stages as Dove glues her mitts into Chloe's face but struggles to soak up a similar response and gets spun to the side with the younger blonde breathing down her neck thereafter. Dove fails to adjust her footing and runs out of real estate in hectic avoidance which allows Chloe to trap her in the corner and tee off straight up the middle. Dove's high guard withstands the initial test but Moretz still splits her mitts and delivers a nasty double blast on the mouth which leaves Cameron yelping in pain at the bell.
Chloe gets more aggressive and tries to split the fellow blonde's high guard again only to find Dove moving around her in much better fashion. Dove bides her time in mid-range and has Moretz slicing thin air before a looping counter-punching response rocks the younger blonde's head back & forth before a belting hook on the navel bends Chloe into spasms. Ugh! Dove tries to cash on the follow up and manages to pound her rival onto the ropes but a largely chaotic attack lacks both the poise and the big punch which enables Chloe to clinch her into safety and prevent further problems.
Dove fakes an overhand route and punishes the fellow blonde to the body instead which catches Chloe off guard and makes coach Eva Mendes hiss in anger in the LCA corner. Suddenly Dove pancakes Chloe's midsection and backs her onto the ropes where she applies the speed dial swing to force an earmuff cover from the targeted girl. Uh-oh! Dove still rattles Chloe up the middle but just doesn't have that big punch and has to work extra hard to keep the Atlanta native pinned behind such a desperate high-guard. Cameron finally switches low to drill more tummy come the final minute before Moretz manages to clinch her albeit that's a second round on the bounce for the free agent here.
Chloe gets rattled too easily by the seemingly weak punching opponent however Dove's superior footwork makes all the difference and prevents Moretz from blasting the free agent into serious trouble. Chloe refuses to chase Dove down and falls into a counter-punching drill that suits Cameron and allows her to control the half-hearted action. Ugh! LCA Alpha Jessica Lowndes would never let someone else run the show like that but Chloe has a lot to learn; she tries to taunt Dove verball from afar but only earns a laughing response and Eva Mendes is downright furious once the cagey action comes to a close. This is hardly the Lioness pounce and maybe Chloe is a little spoiled coming off four straight wins?
Mendes' pep-talk does the trick and Chloe comes out firing for the fifth, she finally neutralizes Cameron's superior footwork and lets her have it which triggers a brutal head-hunting assault in the opening minute. Dove hangs on during the exchange but eats a wicked hook on the ear just past the one-minute mark and wobbles to her heels which allows Moretz to blast her up the middle. A shot on the solar plexus cripples the free agent more than others while Chloe pounds the wilting foe onto the ropes where she shrugs off the clinching attempts and nails Cameron on the nose several times. Uh-oh! Dove slumps to the side with a loud whimper and still eats another belting hook on the liver area that makes her scream out in pain right at the bell.
Dove can't stay off Chloe's range anymore and soaks up another head-hunting series that glues her to the spot in the center of the ring before the younger blonde smokes her with another gut shot from the left. Dove bends to the side with another whimper and eats a chin-checker from the right that sends her into shimmy shake mode and allows Chloe to BURST into her nostrils with a knockout piledriver moments later!!! DOWN GOES CAMERON!!! The older blonde crashes down on her back with arms above her head and drifts away into a mumbling demise as the merciless count passes her by!!! KO6 Chloe Grace Moretz!!!
AFTER: Despite taking the big 'W', Eva Mendes is furious with the blonde lioness who struggled to make a proper impact during the first four rounds. Maybe Chloe needs to step up the food chain as she seemingly wanted to save too much energy just fighting on her opponent's terms. A more qualified opponent would require a truly focused approach. Dove still wants that stable contract and is young enough not to be considered a washed-up punchbag - something that clearly escaped Chloe's attentions. A couple of extra sparring sessions with Shenae Grimes next week should steer Chloe's priorities on the right track but thankfully the Atlanta native realizes she's earned very low artistic impression marks for tonight's performance.
Official Result: Chloe Grace Moretz def. Dove Cameron KO6.
