Part 1:Jenna Louise Coleman vs Lucy Liu
In boxing these days; let's be honest, how many marquee fights do we truly get? This is one of celebrity boxing's marquee fights.
In one corner will be the champion, Jenna Louise Coleman is seeking to break the single organization record for wins, she currently is tied at 17 straight wins in the BBU.
Of those wins, 7 have been title bout wins overs names like Ola Jordan, Mikie Hara, Lily Allen, Debby Ryan and so on, to make her overall record 33 wins, 30 by knockout and only 5 losses with 1 draw!
Her challenger, Lucy Liu certainly doesn't need an introduction in terms of who she is and what she has done in Hollywood and the small screen lately.
But the 46 year old in boxing has held 9 titles in her career, is in the FCBA hall of fame and is the girl who shares the 17 wins in a row record that Jenna is trying to break.
Her own record is a whooping 81 wins, 54 by knockout and 37 losses in a truly amazing career that has seen pundits call her one of the greats and no offence to Charlize Theron, but maybe the greatest fighter in celeb boxing history.
I don't know if I really need to say more to sell this fight, so much is on the line for them both; the title, records and most important to some, massive amounts of pride as this will go down in history of celeb boxing as a bookmark, the fight that people will remember for the rest of their lives.

Part 2:Ola Jordan vs Penny Higgs review
Who ever says dancers are not tough needs to talk to these two! What a fight to end a Saturday night.
Coming into this fight, Penny had beaten Maisie Williams in a brutal display as the youngster didn't have the skills to cut the big woman down.
While Ola lost to the legend of Australian celeb female boxing Danni Minogue in a hard fought contest between the two fit beauties.
This was a barnstormer of a fight as straight from the bell, the two fighters tore away at each other in a furious opening 3 minute drive from both.
The second round was much of the same but after that, Ola started to find her rhythm, working at midrange, she attacked relentlessly the face of Penny and actually made the bigger girl miss most of her shots.
Penny did have some good moments in the fight and made it enjoyable with her own effort through the rounds.
But there was only one winner and when the hand of Ola's was raised, nobody in Penny's hometown questioned the decision, that's a great sign you won comfortably.
For Penny, I don't know how she moves on from this result exactly, I mean she has the talent to make a good run for gold but this result showed how beatable she is and stables like the Girls Friday one should watch tape on this to see that.
But I hope she does find her feet again and can get on a good run when she works out how she wants her career to move on.
On Ola, this was a massive result for a girl who was cut for a younger model, that had to hurt her pride but she's shown steel in her soul to come out of it with a smile and proof that she is still truly in her prime.
Could an Ola title bid get traction for next year? In all honest I can't see why not, the flyweight division has expanded at the top and she'll have to crawl past top contenders like Lily Allen, Jade Ewen, Molly King and Kelly Hall to name just a few in a very packed field to just get a chance.
But she's a talented girl, who with her dance training; has the tools to do all what she wants in this division if she keeps her mind on the job.

Part 3: Jessica Lucas vs Marion Cotillard
It's ironic that two actresses who've played characters in the Batman universe, would fight it out in 2016, when the series is changing once again under Ben Affleck's watch.
Jessica Lucas was making her debut earlier in the week and has been playing Tabitha Galvan on the show Gotham.
While Marion was looking to add to her win column as she had won 2 in 9 fights and had played Talia Al Ghul in the Dark Knight Returns several years ago.
Of course neither fighter was interested in their TV and film careers, it was about what happened in the ring and both came to fight alright.
Marion is a good hand, proving it in the early rounds with some great punching through the guard of Jessica and moving around her to keep her guessing where the attacks were going to come from.
But as the fight wore on, Jessica showed her talents off and started to rip away at the body of Marion, Lucas knocked Cotillard around the ring.
After a while, Marion was down and couldn't push herself up after being hit with a thunderous punch.
Both fighters showed there was no hard feelings between the two and Jessica marches on to her next fight without the worry of breaking her duck.
For Marion? She still has some career to go in the ring as in her last two fights against younger women, she's shown her tactical brain is still in full flow but has she the game to beat many girls, probably not if we are honest.
In what could be a good news story concerning the two, reportedly Marion has been asked to be a sparring partner for Jessica, how long that lasts if true is questionable in itself.
But if it gives Marion somewhere to train, even as a guest, is better than her floating around gyms looking for a coach or regular training.
In terms of Jessica's career, many big fights could be on the horizon if she can show herself off in more of these early fights.
Her physique is impressive from all the training she does, so it will come down to how well she does technique wise and key to everything, how she does mentally.

Final Part: Cher Lloyd vs Amelia Lily Oliver
Well I seem to be speaking about this young lady every week and if she keeps pumping out performances like this every week, then long may that continue.
Of course I am talking about Cher Lloyd, the pint sized slugger, who just happens to be undefeated in her albeit short career but quickly gaining traction career.
Amelia in her own right started her career off with 8 of the best as they say, 8 wins to start but 6 losses followed as the first time she lost against top opposition, was the signal that a fall was on it's way for her.
So it looked like there would be only one winner here and oh lord would you have been right, Cher tore Amelia up!
Physically looking at the girls, it should have been a tight contest but Amelia lacks any confidence and Cher just beat her from pillar to post for 4 rounds.
The end came swift enough and Amelia looked like she could maybe just beat the count, instead though had decided that maybe staying down would be best as she got counted out to upset Frankie C. Even worse then his mood normally is off a stable fighter loss.
Amelia was seen as going to be the prized asset to the Frankie's Foxes, instead she has become somewhat a warning to Cher, don't get too comfortable with yourself in a ring.
Life in the ring tends to turn around and bite you went you least expect it as they say, so I hope Cher takes my warning.
But as a whole, another super performance from a girl who can currently do no wrong, unless you speak to Cheryl Cole of course, but that's another matter.
So the future of both youngsters will certainly be very interesting, can Amelia get back where she hopefully believes where she should be as a winner.
Will Cher continue to win to end this year and go into next year strongly to upset who've the flyweight champion is?
