Chloe Grace Moretz vs Jenna-Louise Coleman (Lioness Club of America vs Global Boxing Syndicate) (14-15, 14 KO vs 23-12, 23 KO) Results: Lookout; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: The state of Georgia gets all the bad press lately and Atlanta native Chloe Grace Moretz doesn't want to talk about it at all... what she wants is to claim Jenna Coleman's scalp to get back to .500 career-wise. It's not gonna be an easy task since the former BBU flyweight champion enters tonight's contest fresh off a fine stoppage of Debby Ryan and vows to "smash that arrogant blonde to pieces".
Chloe realizes she needs to destroy the likes of Coleman if she's ever going to break out of Jessica Lowndes' shadow. Time is very much on her side but a reputation of mere sidekick to a superior performer can be very difficult to dismiss as time seemingly goes by. Just ask Selena Gomez for advice!
Chloe Moretz wears a red bikini set & white gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a half-up ponytail. Jenna Coleman wears a teal bikini set & black gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a similar half-up ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Round 1: Jenna cranks up the early pace and leaves Chloe blocking the initial onslaught with her face which only fuels the brunette's production down the stretch. The vintage flyweight slugging drive catches Chloe completely off guard and drops her into an earmuff cover rather than a proper response which makes her look vulnerable enough for Jenna to steam ahead with more ruthless punches up the middle. Moretz tries to clinch her but gets bumped off in a physical surge and ends up hugging the ropes after Coleman thumps her in the body with a late switch downstairs. Chloe tries to swing over the top but shoots over the Brit's head and eats a brutal uppercut on the jaw right at the bell instead.
Round 2: More slugging pressure from the Blackpool native who glues Moretz to the spot in the center of the ring and simply outworks her top to bottom. Chloe sticks more promising leather into the brunette's face but still loses the exchange by shear numbers and scowls in pain when Jenna tears a small gash under her left eye during the second minute. However Chloe doesn't get bounced back to the ropes anymore and produces a strong recovery in the final minute when Coleman seemingly waited for the blonde to collapse in spooked fashion but Moretz hits right back at her and wobbles her to the side after a nasty left/right combo on each temple. It's not enough to steal the round on the cards though.
Round 3: Jenna rolls out with the slugging maze again but runs into a wall this time and gets overpowered in close range while Chloe tears her up downstairs to shatter the Brit's comfort zone. Chloe almost catches the brunette with a nasty headbutt but she leans into the older actress and thumps her in the abs where Jenna doesn't exactly match Olivia Holt's prowess and tails off into quiet spasms once the punching heat becomes too hot! Ugh! Jenna spins out of the jam but Moretz leaps after her and nails her on the left ear before blasting a crippling hook on the solar plexus as well. Coleman stumbles onto the turnbuckle where the blonde foe cleans her up with more body shots and finally gives the LCA entourage something to smile about!
Round 4: Jenna seeks immediate revenge but she just misses out on the initial charge while Chloe beats her for the overhand swing and slams into her mouth with a nasty right hand... Jenna sinks on her heels but still flies one upstairs alas she doesn't carry anything from the back foot while Moretz NAILS her with a brutal right hook on the brow ridge that spins the former BBU champion to the side... Jenna slumps on jelly knees but refuses to back off... she gets beaten for another ruthless double on each temple before Chloe DRILLS her on the solar plexus and FOLDS HER DOWN ON HER KNEES moments later!!! Uh-oh!!! Jenna slumps to all fours with a loud whimper and takes too much time to shake off the knockdown daze... she makes a late recovery at nine but still hugs the aching solar plexus when the ref asks her if she's good to go.... nope, she is not! TKO4 Chloe Moretz!!!
AFTER: Jenna is send back to coach Liz Hurley who can barely hide her anger over a "soft call" from the ref but sometimes that's the luck of the draw in celebrity boxing. And there's not much excitement in the LCA corner either as Chloe gets back to .500 but actually looked subpar during the opening two rounds and got a little lucky with the stoppage. Coach Eva Mendes tells her "You're not getting that call on the PPV!" - and she might actually be right. Maybe DAZN enjoys a controversial moment or two though?
Official Result: Chloe Grace Moretz def. Jenna-Louise Coleman TKO4.
Minka Kelly vs Katie Cassidy (Lioness Club of America vs Empire Boxing) (58-26-1, 54 KO vs 12-17, 7 KO) Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: It's been ten years in the making but a rubber match between Minka Kelly and Katie Cassidy is finally upon us! These two Los Angeles natives split a pair back in 2011 but Minka still claims the bonus tie-breaker since she knocked Katie out while dropping a decision loss herself.
Minka has another high-profile bout lined up later this month and admits she needs ring practice more than anything else: "Katie hasn't been in the ring since 2018. I hope she worked her butt off in the gym or else I'm gonna look desperate by chasing the rubber fight! But I'm calling my own schedule so bring it on, tramp!"
Minka Kelly wears a black bikini set & red gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a half-up ponytail. Katie Cassidy wears a red bikini set & silver gloves. Long dyed blonde hair tied in a custom ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the bantamweight division.
Round 1: Minka isn't the fastest of starters by any means but even she knows how to dominate a rusty opponent like Katie who hasn't entered the ring in years... Katie tries to weather the southpaw storm but leaks crisp punches up the middle and remains glued to the spot for too long to make Minka's job all that difficult. She lands one quick overhand to let the Lioness brunette know she's actually here but gets thumped onto the ropes down the stretch and can only clinch the older woman. Minka barges into her breadbasket and keeps the slugging pressure alive while Katie looks relieved just to hear the bell after a completely subdued performance.
Round 2: LCA coach Eva Mendes wants Minka to dial up a huge early lead and Katie's sluggish only doubles down on those ideas. The Empire blonde just can't make her presence felt and only lands single punches while Minka triples the numbers without having to actually work at 100% according to Erin Andrews in the booth. The one-sided jabbing show continues and has Katie dancing around on her toes in shear avoidance for majority of the round; if only Minka wanted to blow her up Lowndes-style she could have done it with ease and even coach Mendes wants to see more aggression from Kelly instead of just making Cassidy look out of her league at this stage. Easy round for Minka but the LCA corner is boiling hot during the break!
Round 3: Minka steps up with more aggressive jabs but suddenly Katie answers right back and whacks the fellow Cal native over the top triggering a hectic slugging dispute in the center of the ring. Ugh! Even Minka did not see that coming as she gets swamped by the shocking blaze and Cassidy keeps thumping her downstairs which does all the damage as Minka bumps her head off the top of her shoulder as well. Katie scowls in pure determination as she cleans up Kelly's midsection before a brutal uppercut clips the jaw and sends Minka reeling onto the ropes. The Lioness fighter remains trapped there for remainder of the round with Cassidy adding more gut-checking harpoons for a good measure.
Round 4: Katie settles into her groove and pounds away at Minka's tummy which leaves the Lioness southpaw scowling in discomfort and suddenly Eva Mendes is the loudest person in the arena... but the LCA coach can only watch as Minka gets pummelled onto the ropes with Katie looking in supreme body assault control having shaken off all the rust and then some! Kelly gets pinned onto the ropes and just sinks under the onslaught, a horrible look for a durable veteran who thrives on her punching resistance! Katie wants that rubber match glory and goes all-in here in the fourth to shut the former champion down but she's not quite done... a late booming hook on the jaw opens Minka up high and she fails to react when Cassidy bombs her on the ear with a nasty follow up... and DOWN GOES KELLY!!!! Disaster strikes seconds before the bell as Minka gets floored to silence the DAZN virtual fan wall! Bell doesn't save Minka outright as she rises upright at seven but prevents Katie from pouncing on the wounded foe and that's the best news for the stunned LCA entourage!
Round 5: Katie feels the rush of blood to the head and races into stride to knock Minka out... but she gets carried away by the late knockdown experience and gets outworked by the seemingly hurting southpaw before a brutal hook on the ear stops her in the tracks. Katie swings from the back foot but Minka ducks underneath the effort and BLOWS the blonde up from the inside rattling her with an uppercut double... Katie gets caught flush on the jaw before a left hook nails her on the eye and SENDS CRASHING FLAT ON HER BACK moments later! Payback time, bytch!!! Katie goes down hard and bangs her head against the canvas which delays her recovery... and she wobbles down on her bums at six... gravity takes over and she's counted out just as she makes one last effort to beat the merciless call. Too late! It's KO5 Minka Kelly!!!
BEFORE: Katie can't believe she just missed it and storms out of the ring still fuming at the ref but she probably should have avoided blowing her gasket early in the fifth and focused on working over the seemingly wounded opponent. Instead she gave Minka a perfect counter-punching opportunity and the former champion cashed in another victory despite a questionable overall performance.
"Hey, I'm still the Dodgers prime time and she fits right into the Angels of Anaheim type! What can I say? I'm sooo sorry she let me off the hook!", Minka picks up a funny line from the virtual fan wall before calling out her next opponent: "There are some rumours out there so I might just confirm it. My next step is the Southpaw Derby versus that overrated blonde bimbo Scarlet Johansson! It's time I give her a REAL Ghost in the Shell experience!" (giggles).
Official Result: Minka Kelly def. Katie Cassidy KO5.
Eiza Gonzalez vs Kelly Rohrbach (Odds & Ends Fight Studio vs Lioness Club of America) (14-17, 14 KO vs 25-16, 25 KO) BWO Rankings: #16 vs #20 Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Rematch time between Eiza Gonzalez and Kelly Rohrbach - both these stunners clashed in November 2019 when the Mexican actress knocked the American out in five and basically handed Kelly her walking papers from VIXENs. Hailey Clauson merely finished Kelly's hopes off the following month and the Connecticut native confirms the first Gonzalez fight happened to wreck her status at VIXENs beyond repair: "This is one that hurts the most. Not gonna lie about it! But Lionesses have targeted Eiza for their own reasons so I'm happy they consider her as a viable option to get my revenge!"
Eiza is indeed no stranger to facing LCA opposition over the years, she battled Lily Aldridge and Odette Yustman with mixed results and is scheduled to face Joy Corrigan on Odds & Ends' beach boxing card soon. One might argue this is a dress rehearsal of sorts and Gonzalez claims she's a better fighter than Rohrbach "ever was and ever will be!"
Eiza Gonzalez wears a black bikini set with green & white trim & red gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a curled ponytail. Kelly Rohrbach wears a light blue bikini set & silver gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a half-up ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the lightweight division.
Round 1: Angry blonde dominates the early action... for like ten seconds before Eiza whacks her over the top and begins to stack up immediate pressure into Kelly's face! The slugging approach was always in the script and Kelly doesn't bail out of her efforts however the brunette simply outworks her in heads up exchange before bursting into her boobs just to turn up the heat even further! Huh! Kelly finally feels some pain and tries to establish new success in mid-distance but eats steady overhand punishment as Gonzalez duly rides the trigger-happy jabbing wave to make the blonde look outclassed for remainder of the round. No wonder the Sports Illustrated model fumes at coach Claudia Schiffer during the interval...
Round 2: Kelly lets it fly early in the second and this time she catches Eiza with a good hook on the ear which allows her to dominate the subsequent exchange. Eiza doubles down on the in-yo-face jabbing wave though and hangs in with the American foe until the two-minute mark when Rohrbach finally lands the biggest haymaker of the lot and wobbles the brunette to her heels. Eiza struggles to carry enough power from that stance and gets thumped onto the ropes as the blonde neutralizes her allegedly superior mobility and cranks up the gut-checking volume to leave the Mexican gasping for air at the bell.
Round 3: More of the same in the third; Eiza accepts Kelly's high stakes slugging in the opening minute only to drop into trouble when the blonde's execution proves vastly superior. She refuses to back off at first but then Kelly threatens to bash her nose into a bloody mess as she snaps the dark ponytail back... and Eiza has to yield real estate. Kelly comes flying in with more head-hunting pressure but Gonzalez shows off her nifty footwork to escape further point blank range damage. However she can't be circling back all day here and tries to steal some artistic value late with a feisty body assault only to bounce off Rohrbach's forearms and sink into more spasms when the SI model spikes her on the chin with an upprercut double instead.
Rounds 4 & 5: Kelly has forged ahead on the cards but Eiza makes better use of her supreme mobility during the next two rounds. She packs more shots into the blonde's body as well and notches some dirty clinching success as well. Eva Mendes joins Claudia Schiffer in the LCA corner and tells the bemused German this is how they do things in Mexico as Eiza steps on Kelly's toes on purpose among other things. She locks the Connecticut blonde in a lenghty clinch before rolling around the ropes where she repeatedly plugs her in the gut. Rohrbach struggles to flex her elbows which proves to be a major problem as Eiza keeps stacking up leather singles and she might not hurt the American with a vicious sweep here but she clearly drains the blonde off valuable energy as we hit half-distance basically split on the cards.
Round 6: Kelly avoids another clinching effort and bumps the Mexican off with a stray head-butt before she connects with a left/right combo on the nose that finally puts the brunette on notice. Eiza struggles to impress when she's forced to work in mid-range and gets outnumbered when she plays by Kelly's rules. The SI model can finally carry more core strenght behind her shots and snaps Eiza's head back & forth before the Mexican tails off into another hectic retreat. She escapes a head-hunting rush at first but then stumbles back into the corner and Rohrbach still traps her with a speedy burst in the closing seconds; Eiza slumps into loud spasms at the bell and displays a small gash across her nasal ridge which needs some medical attention during the interval.
Round 7: Aggressive slugging from both women as the cards are too close to rely on them. Kelly seems to enjoy the initial burst but she can't quite land that haymaker punch and gets stuffed in the boobs as Eiza finally goes down the jug muggin' route several fans thought she would more often tonight. And the JMDD trick works as Kelly wobbles forward and gets sucked into another dirty clinch... Eiza shoves the blonde butt-in-ropes and keeps pounding her midriff into a mush before one of these belting harpoons drills the liver area and bellows Rohrbach over the top into outright spasms. It's right there for the taking and Eiza SLAMS a left/right combo into the exposed rack TO SEND KELLY CRASHING DOWN ON HER KNEES!!! This could be a deciding moment of the bout as Eiza is ready to celebrate in style before she realizes Kelly just won't check out after a single JMD combo! More work is required but the American model still looks a little shaky when she gets up at seven. She can't escape Eiza's jabbing rush but avoids more outright damage as the Mexican seems perplexed by her options; She aims both high & low but simply can't finish the blonde off before the bell.
Round 8: Eiza doesn't want to rely on the cards despite forging ahead and sprints across the ring to connect with some quick punches but Kelly unloads a nasty cross hook on the nose before stuffing the brunette with a belting shot herself. Eiza steps in and shoots high... but misses... and Kelly comes back with a thunder of a hook from the inside that shatters the Mexican's jaw!!! Uh-oh!!! Eiza wobbles to her side with a loud whimper and doesn't raise her mitts fast enough as Kelly carries a left/right double into her mouth! Eiza's head snaps back and she trips onto the ropes... she tweaks to the right and the blonde still nails her with a flying head spinner!!! A left hook then drills the solar plexus TO WRENCH THE MEXICAN BABE ONTO HER BACKSIDE!!! How about this then? Kelly responds with a knockdown of her own!!! Gonzalez groans herself through the count and gets up at eight... but Kelly has enough time to WHACK her from both flanks and goes all-in high to snap the dark ponytail around Eiza's neck!!! Hammer time!!! Heavy bombs crash into the brunette's face and she goes limp upon repeated impact... she offers nothing back and the ref has to step in just before the two-minute mark!!! He pulls the American off her prey and embraces a very soft looking Mexican babe. TKO8 Kelly Rohrbach!!!
AFTER: That Main Event should satisfy all the DAZN ratings' experts but Kelly is still the biggest winner of the night as she secures the all-important revenge win over a bitter Mexican foe. It wasn't a proper slam dunk performance but both these hellcats are matched too closely together to expect one after all.
Meanwhile Eiza has shown enough skill in defeat to keep her as the betting favorite against another Lioness blonde Joy Corrigan whom she is scheduled to face next. That's a very small consolation prize for a clearly dejected brunette who needs several shots of tequila to calm down before the Odds & Ends press conference.
Official Result: Kelly Rohrbach def. Eiza Gonzalez TKO8.
