Part 1: Alice Eve vs Lacey Turner preview
This will be the main event on Tuesday, the final fight of the entire Contender Six tournament and technically this is a dead rubber, Alice Eve is the tournament winner so a loss her won't change that.
Before you believe that this fight means nothing then you are making a mistake, first Lacey of course wants to finish strong, beating Alice will give her the bragging rights of being the one to beat the winner.
While Alice knows she is going to get a title shot at Daisy Ridley for the BBU bantamweight at the PPV one week after this fight, being the second woman to go undefeated in this tournaments history will mean momentum going into that fight.
In their last fights Alice overcame Maya Jama, it took her five rounds to knockout out the TV presenter, she didn't have it all her way but she showed she could be pressured and comeback.
While Lacey would lose to Rose Byrne, that defeat was what cost her a change to make this fight a direct shootout for the tournament, instead she suffered her second defeat in this tournament, it has to be said she has underperformed.
So the odds are Alice will the one on top, Lacey though has the knockout power to pull off a surprise, Lord knows she has plenty of motivation to bring her best.
It also has to be asked which way will Alice take on this fight, will she go full hog to beat Lacey quickly or does she box conservatively to try to not take too much damage, that decision might be the biggest deciding factor for this fight.

Part 2: Maya Jama vs Samaria Regalado preview
Plenty of pride will be on the line in this fight, neither has made a big mark in the Contender Six tournament, a win is imperative for both to show going forwards the potential is there.
Each has a single win each, ironically it happened for them both the first week of the tournament, Maya Jama would defeat Lottie Moss, while Samaria upset Lacey Turner in the shock of the tournament.
It has to be said that Maya has to be classed as disappointing so far in this tournament, body shots have taken her undefeated record, whatever happens after this fight she needs to work hard on her defence and abs.
Samaria meanwhile had a free reign at this tournament, coming in as a rookie, she has shown glimpses of what could be, a another loss though will make it hard to sell her to managers.
These two are very similar in builds, their strengths and weaknesses too, so the difference may come down to experience, Maya has the advantage of that, how will Samaria take down Maya in a shootout?
In their young careers this is maybe the biggest of their careers so far, which of these two prospects will continue on the right path and which will need to look in on themselves how they will improve?

Part 3: Rose Byrne vs Lottie Moss preview
The opening bout of this coming Tuesdays final set of fights in the Contender Six tournament sees a battle of experience vs youth, with one fighter wanting to keep her momentum, the other to build off their first win in said tournament.
Since Rose Byrne lost in the first round, she has went on a hell of a run, piling up wins over Maya Jama, Samaria Regalado and recently over Lacey Turner, if she had beaten Alice Eve it very well would have been her standing a top of the ranking table.
Lottie meanwhile couldn't seem to get out the fifth round of fights, losing to Maya, Alice and Lacey, finally last month she defeated Samaria to get her back in the winners circle.
As stated this will be a battle between two women on different career paths, Rose is on that last crusade run to the top, her career it has to be said wasn't anything special till this tournament, something has clicked and at forty, Rose is on the run to the top.
Compared to Lottie who of course is still early in her career, she has been learning through defeats though, her hand speed is second to none in the division, she just lacks the raw power to go with it.
Of course Rose on paper is the favourite with her form and she does pack a punch, if the Aussies closes the gap quickly it will be curtains for Moss.
Who will rely on her speed, where Rose is more planted with her feet, if Lottie boxes smart enough then Rose will be at her mercy, that's what some of my friends predict will happen, up to Lottie to fulfil her potential to be a future champion, should be a good battle between them.
Where will both women go after this tournament, Lottie needs the win to build momentum on what could be a very successful career, only if she puts all the pieces together of course.
Rose on the other hand may need the win more, she has shown a rebirth of sorts for her career in this tournament, will a loss her put her back on the shelf helping train her stablemates?

Final Part: A fight to remember: BBU lightweight title fight: Maffia vs Ellison
With the BBU turning a decade old this year, we are going to look back at past fights that were either classics or were important milestones in the history of this organization.
First up we return to the 25th November in 2010, title tournaments had been made in each division, with the lightweight title being the first to be fought for on one night in the now legendary BBU Arena in Cardiff.
On the night Lisa Maffia had defeated Leilani Dowding and Gemma Bissex, while Jennifer Ellison had beaten Diana Vickers and Alesha Dixon, leading to both women coming head to head in the final for the title.
Coming into the ring that night, both were riding high in their careers so they were on confident of success, plenty of pride was on the line for them.
The opening round saw both start off slowly behind jab, the pressure not to make a mistake was firmly on their minds, with Lisa the first to land a big hit, a right hook that gave Jennifer a taste of her power.
Back come Jennifer in the second, using her raw strength and inside fighting skills, knocking back Lisa to the outside of the ring, she seemed to firmly be getting a foot into the fight.
But there was a massive turning point in the third, Jennifer left herself two open to several hooks, they sent the blonde actress down for a count of eight, she got to her feet to beat the count.
It was clear that she had suffered worse of the two in the previous fights in the tournament, Lisa rocked her again and again, put down two more times before she was counted out in the fifth.
Lisa would go on to have a record run with the title, now she is in the BBU hall of famer, this was the first major milestone in the BBU history.
That's all we have time for this week, thank you for taking the time to read these posts, we hope you enjoyed and we hope to see you next Sunday for the next edition of the real view.
