(Girls Friday vs Free Agent)
Former stablemates do battle tonight, Ivana Baquero and Ola Jordan step into the ring here in the BBU Arena, hoping to use the other as a stepping stone towards a future flyweight title shot.
Ivana is 25 years old, she stands 5'3, holding a record of 12 wins, 11 coming by way of knockout, with only 3 defeats.
Ola is 37 years old, she stands 5'2, holding a record of 15 wins, 11 coming by way of knockout, with 12 defeats.
Both fighters are coming off a loss in their last fights, a win maybe needed more by Ola with her being the older fighter, another loss for both shoves them right back in the standings.
In the build up to the fight the fighters gave a few words as they stepped into the arena, Ivana was in first with head trainer Taryn Terrell beside her.
Seeing the interviewer Ivana stops with a friendly smile, the actress telling her "it is good to be out the gym and to actually get to hit someone in a real fight again" making Taryn grin behind her.
She is asked about her feelings towards Ola, Ivana replies "well Ola wasn't always the friendliest to be around but what can you expect when she was the old bytch around the gym" chuckling to herself.
"Ola is a great fighter but she never gave me trouble in sparring, I doubt she will give me any bother when we take the breaks off and really go at it, you'll see that soon enough though" finishes up Baquero as she nods before leaving to head to the stable locker room.
In comes Ola not that long later, she has on a red dress and her coach carries her back, she stops to looks up and down the interviewer, making them look uncomfortable.
"I guess you want a moment of my time? Fine, let me spell it out to you and the rest of the BBU fans, I am happier being away from that stable, especially with Spanish rats like Ivana around the place" says Ola with disdain.
Lifting her right fist up, Ola continues "luckily for my old stable I have a gift for Ivana, I'm gonna give her an early nap" laughing as she waves her coach to follow her as she leaves.
Fighting time; out first comes Ivana with Taryn and Eva Carneiro beside her, she is looking in a good mood as she jogs down the aisle.
She is wearing a red sports bra with a yellow trim, matching trunks and shoes, red gloves, while her brunette hair is tied back into a fighting ponytail.
Climbing into the ring, Ivana raises her hands in the air at the center of the ring, smiling before heading to her corner, where she gets more serious.
Out comes Ola with her coach behind her, she looks relaxed as she heads down the aisle, pumping her right fist in the air as if a warning to Ivana what is coming for her.
She is wearing a gold glittery sports bra, matching trunks and shoes, she has silver coloured gloves, her blonde hair is tied into a braid.
Stepping inside the ring, Ola gives the crowd a few shakes of her hips before heading off to her corner, where she tells her coach "I can't wait to knock her lights out" getting a nod from her coach.
The referee brings the fighters to the ring center, both stare hard at their rival tonight, not much love here between the former stablemates.
Even the bumping of fists has an edge to it as a crack rings out, heading back to their corners, the referee signals for the bell to start 10 rounds of flyweight action.
At the bell both women come out trading stiff single punches as they search for a way to land their bigger punches, eyes are locked on their opponent.
Stepping inside with a double jab, Ola is a little too slow to move back to the outside, getting clipped with two cross punches to her cheeks.
Before Ivana tries to hunt down Ola, both women landing some nice crisp punches to the others cheeks, an evenly fought first half to the round, with Ola more up on her toes looking to fight in skirmishes to start, compared to the more front foot attack from the Spanish fighter.
The first real big punch comes from Ivana, who slips a left cross to bang in a right to the body, an overhand left smacks Jordan to the side of her head to back her away.
Ivana quickly stalks after her, Ola not enjoying the pressure as she misses with a right hook, a left/right smacks into her abs before an overhand right smacks her cheek.
The final moments of the round sees a classic flyweight exchange, they keep nearly bumping heads as fists quickly fly in the heated exchange, up until the bell rings to end the round.
It's Ivana who gets the nods from the pundits for this round, Ola admitting to her coach she came out the blocks too slowly, promising she won't from now on.
Moving more side to side with her impressive footwork, Ola begins the round a lot more smoothly then the last, dodging before landing her own punches to the face and abs of her opponent.
Ivana is landing a few nasty looking punches across the face of the Polish warrior, Ola's movement though is making the difference in the opening minute.
With Ola dipping under a straight to bash in two body shots, getting back to range when a left slams into the side of her head, reminding her that Ivana isn't going to let her have this fight so easy.
As they head into the last minute of the round, Ivana is still struggling to land in volume, her timing isn't quite there thanks to Ola's counter punches giving her problems.
An overhand left to the cheek of Baquero opens her up, three more punches land to the face of Ivana to back her up towards the ropes.
The round comes to an end with Ola definitely making a statement of intend in this round, her coach telling her that was much better from her.
Sticking to what was successful last round; Ola is sticking and moving, frustrating the hot tempered Spanish fighter with her slipping punches, that get more wilder as the opening minute goes by.
Ivana is told by her corner to settle down, maybe hearing that as she switches back to jabbing, trying to get her timing back on track, with several cleaner hits now knocking back the head of Ola.
Who soon dips under a left cross, landing a left/right body shot before finishing the combo with a left hook up top to turn the brunette's head to the side.
Backing Ivana up to the ropes with a body barrage, Ola is smirking as Ivana drags her into a clinch, bodies grind together as they hiss in the others face.
Once broken apart by the referee, Ola looks to keep on top with her double jab, a missed straight opens Ola up to a left hook to the body, an uppercut straightens her up.
It's too late though for Ivana to make a real dent in Ola, just about to land a few more clean shots to her face before the bell rings to end the round.
Ola dancing back to her corner as her fans stand to cheer her on, her corner team reminding her to take this fight seriously, banging her gloves together as Ola looks keen to get back out her corner.
Closing the gap more quickly between them, Ivana forces an early exchange of furious punches, heads get knocked back to the delight of the crowd as sweat goes flying.
Ola soon misses with a left cross, Ivana making her pay with an uppercut that knocks back the head of the dancer, a left then slams into the mouth of Ola to push her backwards.
A flurry of punches snaps back the head of Ola, she is pressed back to the ropes as Ivana really opens up on her, a murderous look on the face of Baquero.
Pulling Ivana into a clinch, Ola shakes her head as blood starts to drip from her nose, the referee needed to separate the two fighters, with Ola moving into space.
Keeping on the attack, Ivana is keeping Ola behind her gloves as she tries to break through to smash her face in, settling for ripping hooks right under the ribs of Jordan to make her cry out.
When the round ends it is a dominant display by Ivana, one that has Taryn looking more relaxed, Ivana gets washed down as they see across the ring Ola getting her bloody nose patched up, bringing a smile to her face.
Coming back out boxing more defensively, Ola is catching Ivana coming at her with straight shots, the Spanish fighter rushing her attacks more then she should be.
Taryn not looking pleased as maybe Ivana showing some desperation to get back in the win column, taking more punches into her face then she is landing.
A rye smile begins to form on Ola's face, her confidence growing as she is outboxing Ivana again, getting more keen herself to plant her feet while throwing combos.
Missing with a jab though leaves Ola open in the final minute to a right to the side of her head, a double jab then slams into the bloody nose of Jordan to make her cry out.
Ivana backing up Ola towards the ropes again, Ola trying to fight her way off them, her bloody nose though is proving a target, one Ivana is more then happy to strike at, bringing tears to the eyes of the blonde.
At the bell Ola might have won the round, her nose though is running with more blood now, her corner team needing to work hard to try to get it sorted before the next round, she winces each time it is getting touched to show how sore it is.
Looking to catch out Ivana like the last round, Ola continues to box off the back foot as she moves side to side, using jabs to bait Ivana in for her big right hand.
Thinking harder now though, Ivana feints with her left, setting Ola off to come at her with a right coming at her face, dodging it before a right slams across the nose of Ola.
Who cries out and backs up as Ivana comes at her like a snarling tigress, two punches knock back the head of Ola, A RIGHT HOOK TO THE CHIN OF OLA SENDS HER ONTO HER BACK!
Ivana bashes her chest with her right fist as she jogs to the neutral corner, 1...2...3... Ola holds her nose as she slowly rolls to her right side, 4...5...6... She can be heard sobbing as her eyes are shut, 7...8... Ivana looks ready if Ola gets up, 9...10 but Jordan doesn't!
Winner Ivana Baquero KO Round 6
It was a merciless finish from Ivana there, she turns and mounts the bottom rope of the corner she is in to raise her blood stained gloves above her head in the air.
While Ola is checked on by her coach and the ringside doctor, she gets her nose treated as she sits up slowly, Ola's face is covered in tears.
Not bothered on bit by her former stablemate, Ivana just walks by her to return to her corner, Taryn pats her back as Eva cuddles her, both telling her how great that finish was, though not happy that in Taryn's mind that Ivana could have finished the fight earlier.
All the while Ola is helped to her feet and out the ring, she has an icepack in a towel stuck on her nose, her fans applauding her as her coach thanks them for her, she is more interested in getting her nose checked out in the back.
Inside the ring Ivana heads to the center, where her right arm is raised into the air, she yells "come on!" As she pounds her chest with her left fist.
Posing in front of the cameras, Ivana blows them a kiss as she puts her left hand on her hip, winking before she heads out the ring with her corner crew.
She jogs up the aisle with a big smile, happy to be back in the ring and in the winners circle, some pundits wondering will it be her or Maisie Williams who proves to be the future of the flyweights in the Girls Friday stable?
