Part 1: Lily Allen vs Cher Lloyd
After we did last weeks Real View, Lily and Cher took the spotlight to fight it out, shockingly it was both women's first fight of the calendar year, maybe busy focusing on their music careers during that time, last Sunday was a chance for both to show off their skills.
Lily has been the bridesmaid of the flyweight division for years, winning big fights like against Cheryl Cole through her career, she can't stick to that elite bracket though as every time she gets momentum something comes up to knock her back down.
On the other hand Cher has so much potential, she has had some great runs but once she tries to step up to the best she has been found wanting, this was a big chance for her to prove she belongs at the top table.
As you can guess from both women's personalities; they didn't exactly click, plenty of mud slinging about careers and personal attacks made sure this was going to be a grudge fight between them.
At the opening bell that showed to be true as it wasn't the most technically sound action, plenty of shoves mixed in with throwing hard shots to try to score an early victory.
While the rounds after were competitive, Lily was winning them with her sheer power proving the difference, Cher trying brawling with arguably the hardest hitter in the division.
When the sixth round came Cher finally took her coaches advice, switching to a more technical boxing style, she started to come back at Lily with her good footwork and fast hands.
A cut above the right eye of Lily was the difference maker, by the eight round she could barely see out her right eye, with Lloyd landing a beautiful three punch combo to send down Allen for the count.
This was arguably the marquee victory Cher has been after, she was pushed hard by Lily, but she is a gritty fighter with plenty to prove still in her mind judging by talks we had with her after this fight.
Lily meanwhile shouldn't be too disheartened, she gave a great account of herself, it could be said without the cut she might have won over ten rounds, plenty for both women to build off in what could be the beginning of a heated feud.

Part 2: Danielle Lloyd vs Jodie Comer
Liverpool and boxing for whatever reason seems to have had an interesting relationship, especially in the celebrity side of things as after Jennifer Ellison, it has been a baron time for them in terms of a top female celebrity boxing.
In terms of contenders for the crown of Merseyside boxing, Danielle Lloyd and Jodie Comer both went into this fight wanting to prove they can be that face the city has needed to lead it into the next generation.
Arguably Danielle has been that face, though one that had only three wins in fourteen fights, she did defeated fellow Scouser Jenny Frost over a year ago.
Jodie wants to be the next face though, claiming she wants to bring glory back to the city, her acting career certainly speaks for itself, could she make it two wins out of two?
Well Danielle actually came out the blocks quicker, Jodie was a little sloppy as she wanted to make a statement, all it did was allow Danielle to get off several clean hits that would push the actress to the outside of the ring.
Taking a deep breath and listening to her coach, Jodie would come out in the second stronger, bashing back Danielle with a good mixture of speed and boxing.
Danielle would prove to be outmatched as by the fourth round she was hurting, leaking too many punches with Jodie banging away across her beautiful face till she went down for the count.
Judging that Jennifer Ellison afterwards gave Jodie her seal of approval after the fight, it seems like Jodie has been given the mantle of representing Merseyside going forwards.
She still has things to work on, one is her temper, Jodie has shown in her two fights that once she starts boiling she becomes sloppy, beyond that she has a great base it seems to build off, time will tell if she becomes a positive force or a busted flush of a fighter.

Part 3: Tanya Mityushina vs Anne Vyalitsina
Talking of the future of boxing for a place, the main event of the card on Thursday saw Tanya Mityushina and Anne Vyalitsina duke it out for national pride in Russia, which of these two women would be the face of lightweight celebrity boxing in the country?
Let's look at the contenders, Tanya came into the BBU with a major win straight away, she upset the talented Jessica Clements in what was seen as an easy win for Jessica, proving far from that.
Across the ring from her was Anne, who while her record at two wins in five didn't look great, she had boxed several top prospects and arguably her gruelling schedule had caused her to lose her last fight to Raven Lyn as much as the raw power of Lyn.
As they stepped into the ring you could feel the tension radiating off them, two prime fighters with their countrymen and women watching them, the spotlight firmly on them as they came together to fight.
The opening two rounds went the way of Anne, using her boxing skills to keep Tanya back, the rookie coming out too open as clearly she was wanting to hurt Anne as soon as she could.
Once Tanya settled herself down, things got interesting as both laced each up on the inside, Tanya pushed the pace up a notch as she come in with overhand punches, knocking back the older fighter.
The fourth was probably the best round on the entire card, both were bloodied with Tanya having a cut on her nose, Anne one under her left eye, the crowd looked the brutality on show as the fighters went at it hard, neither wanting to give an inch.
But the fifth saw the finish, Anne got clocked with an overhand left square on the chin, a hook followed and down went Anne out cold before she hit the canvas.
Of the two wins Tanya has, this was probably the one she is most proud of as the crowd chanted her name, she did well to win the fight, still rough around the edges but the lightweight division looks to be growing well with fighters like Tanya, Jodie and Lily James coming through.
Anne herself didn't do badly here, she just had a moment of lacking focus after being in control for a good portion of the fight, proved her down fall and what a fall it was, luckily she wasn't badly hurt, might be a few weeks though before she decides to get back into the ring.

Final Part: Lorena Rae vs Sasha Luss
Finally this week we focus on a welterweight fight, two big hitters got it on in Thursday, Lorena Rae braved going to hostile territory to battle Sasha Luss on her home crowd in Russia, one where she was booed before even the opening bell.
It has certainly been an interesting few months for Lorena, the German stunner only two months ago was in the FCBA European Cup tournament, beating Olga Kurylenko in round one, then fell to Sandra Kubicka last month in what was a grudge match in itself in the quarter final.
Sasha meanwhile has surprisingly after coming out the blocks so quickly in her first year in boxing last year went quiet till this fight, she stated that modelling jobs and her growing acting career had got in the way, some say that she has people in the division a little scared of her after that impressive start.
One person who definitely proved they were not was Lorena, coming in taunting the hostile crowd for booing her, though Sasha made her pay for that with a good first round beating.
Learning quickly from that, Lorena used her extra reach over Sasha to knock her back with straight punches, the Russian looked over hyped with the crowd behind her.
The third followed the same script as Sasha got clocked too easily, her bottom lip was cut open by a right cross as Lorena started to pile pressure on Luss as she came forwards.
Sasha learning her lesson went back to what has got her to this stage, counter punching as she used her flexibility to Bob and weave out of danger, landing beautiful counter punches to Rae's face to the delight of the crowd.
An uppercut in the fifth followed by a left hook to the jaw sent Lorena tumbling down to the canvas, the big German beauty couldn't make it back to her feet.
Another step in the right direction for Sasha, like the lightweight division; the welterweight division is growing with new fighters coming through, could Sasha become a champion on this form?
Well if she cuts out trying to slug her way through opponents when her style is more like a surgical approach, we breath she has the talent to do so, just going to be hard to navigate through women like our champ Doutzen Kroes, Petra Nemcova, Kate Upton, the list goes on and on of elite welterweights now.
Meanwhile Lorena deserves a hell of a lot of credit doing this fight, the crowd reaction to her was brutal, still she gave Sasha a good work out and maybe if it had been in Germany, the roles would be reversed with Lorena getting her hand raised, she is a talent fighter we feel is ready to break out at any moment.
That's all for this weeks show, we hope you enjoyed it as always, thank you to everyone who took the time to read these posts, we will be back next Sunday with the next edition of the Real View, remember to stay safe.
