Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Elle MacPherson swept both Liz Hurley and Monica Bellucci back in April and she's absolutely ready for a proper 1990s Alpha Battle revival versus Claudia Schiffer who comes off wins over two Italian stunners herself. Two Alpha Blondes laid those brunettes to waste and they bypass Cindy Crawford for the time being to lock horns on the season-ending PPV.
"I know Claudia has made a comeback lately but she's been out of action since the early 00s. That's a very long time indeed! I'm not gonna remind her how I whupped her ass back in 1995! It's a different ball game now but I still have that big punch to cause her all the trouble! Just ask Nikki Visser!", Elle seems very confident while talking to Erin Andrews but the German blonde doesn't want to hear any of that: "Look, let's don't overthink the room, shall we? I still have those beach boxing tapes from 1990s where I held my own against Elle! And she knows it! I've been working out in the gym while Elle was resting on her laurels over the summer! That's what Nikki Visser told me last week anyway!"
Elle MacPherson wears a black one-piece swimsuit & golden gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a sleek ponytail. Claudia Schiffer wears a red crop top, black hip-huggers & white gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a custom ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the welterweight division.
Both women follow a steady head-hunting route before Claudia decides to up the jabbing ante and gradually outworks the fellow blonde in close range attacks. Elle struggles to match the German's intensity but still lands a couple of gut shots to keep the younger blonde honest... however she eats a nasty double on the jaw that allows Claudia to dominate the subsequent phone booth action before a looping cross nails the Aussie model on the nose and sinks her on jelly knees once Schiffer begins to stack up punches from point-blank range. Elle has to deke out of trouble instead of slugging back at the German but she fails to escape Claudia's range and gets trapped on the ropes where the younger blonde pummels her to the body from both flanks and leaves gasping for air come the bell.
Claudia tries to stay on top of the older model with more head-hunting attacks but she eats a booming hook on the temple this time and wobbles to the side upon impact which allows MacPherson to stack up immediate follow up before the German can properly react. Claudia is late to apply the earmuff cover and gets whacked on the mouth several times which reels her onto the ropes where Elle cranks up the jabbing volume and snaps her head back repeatedly. Ugh! Claudia slumps into loud spasms but manages to slip underneath the aerial raid and clatters into the Aussie model's boobs with a slightly desperate uppercut effort. Elle sniffs out the recovery and bangs Schiffer on the ear before a vicious uppercut nails the German on the chin and slumps her on the ropes again.
More of the same in the third as Elle cashes in with the aerial attack and rattles Claudia on both temples before driving a nasty series up her gut. Ugh! Claudia gets stuffed in the center of the ring and relies on some desperate clinching once she eats more half-uppercuts on the rack down the stretch. MacPherson shakes her off though and pounds back to the ropes where Schiffer gets shut down with more body harpoons that slump her into visible discomfort come the final minute. Another uppercut blast tears the German's guard as well and allows the Aussie model to rock Schiffer's head back until the bell halts her charge.
Elle feels she's only one solid combo away from breaking Claudia's resilience but she gets beaten for a swift overhand series early in the fourth before the German stuns her with a left hook on the ear that spins the older blonde sideways... Elle tries to swing from the back foot but finds nothing but thin air and Schiffer suddenly lets it rip over the top... she nails the Aussie woman across the nasal ridge and connects with a couple of heavy uppercuts on the jaw before another left hook tears the brow ridge and wobbles MacPherson forward just so Claudia still finds room to deliver a brutal uppercut on the jaw!!! Ugh-oh!!! DOWN GOES ELLE!!! The Aussie stunner gets dropped to her knees and crashes face-down at the fellow blonde's feet moments later as even Erin Andrews is shocked by the sudden demise of the hitherto dominant woman! Ugh! And Elle is left licking the canvas as she simply can't battle through the slowish count which passes her by in merciless fashion!!! KO4 Claudia Schiffer!!!
AFTER: Sometimes a mere one-two combo can turn a cougar bout around but Elle should be bitterly disappointed her resistance got so badly exposed during an otherwise winnable contest. Most of these cougar disputes are decided not by raw power but lack of a proper defense and the 'The Body' learned about it the hard way tonight. Downunder coach Nikki Visser vows to bring Elle back for another run though and even Claudia approves that call: "You're only as good as your last fight, hun! The VHS tapes of 1995 are no longer the benchmark! But we need Elle in top shape these days so my tonight's victory looks even better on paper!" (winks).
Official Result: Claudia Schiffer def. Elle MacPherson KO4.
