Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Cheryl Cole completes her triple assault at the Next Gen Latina singers having split a pair versus Camila Cabello and Cierra Ramirez at the end of 2020 season. One can argue Becky is one youngster with the biggest upside of the three - she's definitely the smallest - and that opinion goes beyond her epic bare knuckle contest where she went down on cuts to Victoria Justice. Becky keeps taking these FCBA challenges one at a time and vows to "destroy this filthy English cow" which meets a stubborn response from Cheryl: "I know these kids are sooo tuff and all that. Big deal. Nobody takes seriously someone who goes by the name of Becky! Sigh... get real, kid! I'll rearrange your face tonight and that's a promise!"
Cheryl Cole wears a black & white vertically striped bikini top, black hotpants & blue gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a curled ponytail. Becky G wears a crimson crop top, matching hotpants & silver gloves. Long raven-black hair with bangs loose & straight. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Cheryl channels her trademark blazing start and the jabbing pace becomes too hot for Becky who gets whacked up the chimney and struggles to soak up the initial burst. Cheryl lands the leather straight into the youngster's face and overwhelms Becky through shear work rate alone as she rattles her from both flanks and sends reeling upon impact. Becky tries to swing back over the top but eats more crisp punches up the middle and gets roasted back to the ropes where she disappears behind a desperate earmuff just as the Geordie singer piles on more pressure and dissects the high-guard anyway. Ugh! Becky sinks on soft knees come the final minute and endures a leather pasting galore which cuts her below the left eye as she's unable to live with Cole's frantic pace whatsoever.
More of the same in the second, Cheryl runs rampant with her jabbing haze and outworks the fellow brunette in the center of the ring before blasting her on the jaw with a drilling uppercut. Uh-oh! Becky slumps to her heels and engages in some chaotic response that only grazes the Brit's flesh while more thumping menace reels her onto the ropes down the stretch again! Chezza keeps plugging her mitts into Becky's face and she knows she's hurting the smaller girl who flicks several mediocre shots from behind the guard that fail to throw Cole off her swarming stance. Cheryl switches low to punish the Latina's midsection come the third minute and Becky actually finds a brief respite as she nails the Geordie babe with a left/right combo on the nose but another quick uppercut on the jaw leaves her gasping for air at the bell.
Cheryl is ready to blow the youngster away and races into another jabbing attack but Becky finally shows some nifty footwork to avoid the initial rush and clobbers the older brunette in the gut to stall her progress. Chezza wobbles forward and bumps her chin off Becky's forehead before the American slams a right hook on the temple and dominates the phone booth exchange with some wild hooks that crash into Cole's face. Becky gets vocal as she outworks the older singer and finds more success on the head-hunting route; she spins Cheryl to the side and connects with her temples before tearing a small gash under the right eye. Cole slumps to her heels and gets whacked from the inside as a vicious uppercut double makes her yelp in pain at the bell.
Becky comes in hot and slams more jabs in the phone booth; she tags the wounded area below Cole's eye and makes her slugging charge work as she snaps the Brit's head back before driving a belting shot into her navel. Chezza wobbles forward and tries to clinch the smaller brunette but gets bounced to the side following an accidental headbutt and struggles to find her balance as Becky charges forward with more hooking menace. She clips Cheryl's chin several times and traps her along the ropes where she digs deep into her midriff and pounds the exposed area until Cole slumps into loud spasms and almost goes down save for a last-ditch clinching attempt that halts the Latina's rush. Becky is verbally upset over that last move but she's right back into this contest and Cheryl has to soak up an earful from coach Eva Mendes during the interval.
More slugging destruction on display early in the fifth as both singers punish each other in head-hunting fashion. Becky feels so comfortable in the phone booth stance she's ready to blow Cheryl's nose off until.... she gets caught by a thunder left hand on the nose that allows Cole to double down and shatter her exposed chin a split second later... Uh-oh!!! Becky cries out in pain and drops her mitts low enough Cheryl steps into a booming right hand that finds the mouth and sends the Latina's gumshield flying off!!! Becky gets crippled on the spot, turns across her body and COLLAPSES FACE-DOWN at her opponent's feet! Booyah!!! Take that and smoke some!!! Chezza struts back to her corner and leaves Becky dead and buried as the brutal series proves too much for the young prospect!!! NINE... TEN... YER OUT!!! KO5 Cheryl Cole!!!
AFTER: Some experts predicted Cheryl will go down swinging versus these Next Gen upstarts but the Geordie Power is still on full display as she takes down an elite prospect 14 years her junior! Book that steady Top 20 ranking spot for Ms Cole as she's not ready to go away by any means! Lioness coach Eva Mendes is truly impressed as she didn't think Chezza can win an outright slugging war of attrition like that but one shouldn't bet against one of the most notorious BBU crossover fighters who's always in the mood to deliver a good beating! Just bring on the next one!
Official Result: Cheryl Cole def. Becky G KO5.
