Danielle Lineker vs Kym Valentine (Wales vs Australia) (BBU: 7-10, 6 KO vs BBU: 0-1; ACB: 1-1, 1 KO) Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: "I know Denise van Outen said I should be fighting Louise frickin' Redknapp next but I'm sooo much better than this!", the Welsh lingerie model goes back to the comments following her last fight where she got utterly wrecked by Inna. "I'm not ready for a farewell bout versus little Miss Punchbag and that's bad news for this Aussie cow! I'm gonna whup Kym Valentine's ass and that's the end of it!"
Meanwhile the Australian actress admits she can't wait to hand Danielle Lineker another loss: "Yeah, she's kinda all over the place lately. That's perfect timing to rearrange her dumb face! I need a win, people! Danielle is a low-hanging fruit these days and man, I hope I will breeze through this fight and get a Knockout of the Night bonus! All eyez on ME!!!"
Danielle Lineker wears a crimson bikini set & silver gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a curled ponytail. Kym Valentine wears a blue crop top, white hotpants & golden gloves. Shoulder-lenght black hair straight. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Round 1: Kym flies in with some quick jabs and keeps the Welsh foe at bay but Danielle seems determined to make an early impact even though she gets picked off during the opening minute. Kym nails her up the middle and keeps firing upstairs until she wobbles the model and nails her with a scything cross hook on the mouth. She drops another heavy shot on the nose and spins Lineker to the side before pounding her onto the ropes with another ruthless jabbing drive. Danielle struggles to find a response and bellows out on the ropes while only managing to clinch the Aussie actress in the final minute but Valentine seeths into her ear at the bell and taunts her right until the ref tells her to zip it.
Round 2: More Aussie aggression in the second round leaves Danielle hanging back and maybe Denise van Outen was right after all? The Welsh stunner appears to be spooked wholesale against a genuine journeywoman thus far while Kym tries to smoke her with a single punch during a chaotic push for jabbing glory. She fails to find that big haymaker but Lineker's defensive demanour is more than enough to trigger more verbal taunts and Valentine finally lands that crippling shot on the chin just after the two-minute mark. Danielle stumbles back onto the ropes and gets blasted on the body as she struggles to embrace Kym's late assault that makes the Cardiff audience jeer in visible disdain at the bell.
Round 3: Danielle tries to rally back early in the third but Kym has her covered even though she gets dragged into a lenghty jabbing dispute that carries little power. Both women dish out single hand punishment but lack genuine strenght to break the deadlock until Lineker tags the actress on the ear and manages to knock her onto her heels with a hectic uppercut on the jaw. Valentine tries to push back from her heels but strumbles forward and Danielle lands a lucky uppercut on the jaw one more time before a scything cross on the temple makes the Aussie wince in pain. Danielle picks up the steam and pounds the briefly stunned opponent onto the ropes where she nails her on the tummy as Kym caves in behind a desperate earmuff much to the crowd's delight.
Round 4: Kym tries to regain control of the fight but struggles to tame the Welsh assault as the Cardiff audience roars Danielle into a dominant jabbing spell during the opening minute. Both women lash out at each other but Valentine soaks up more hits and wobbles to her heels come the one-minute mark while Lineker barks in additional efforts to shut her down along the ropes. Kym yields the real estate and weaves on her feet in a futile effort to break away before Danielle smokes her with a brutal hook on the temple. The Aussie gloves collapse and Danielle NAILS the woozy foe on the chin with a nasty piledriver... DOWN GOES VALENTINE!!! The Aussie cougar slumps on her knees unable to embrace that last hit but the bell saves her from getting counted out and now she's the one getting taunted as the ref shoves Danielle back to her corner. Kym gets up but remains visibly rattled during the interval so...
Round 5: ...it's no surprise she struggles to embrace Danielle's jabbing heat early in the fifth. She slums to her heels and has Danielle pounding her up the middle until the guard collapses again and enables the local favorite to BLAST her on the exposed chin. Ugh! Kym's eyes bellow out of the orbit and she wobbles one last time with the Welsh model clocking her on the nose until it's finally too much! Valentine drops face-down at Lineker's feet and the ref waves off the count at six with the Aussie tourist unable to move anymore. KO5 Danielle Lineker!!!
AFTER: Danielle looked awful in the first couple of rounds and even her post-fight taunting over the fallen rival doesn't change the fact a younger and more skilled opponent would have probably finished her off in equally ruthless fashion like Inna did earlier this year. However Danielle is happy to extend her BBU career fighting journeywoman cougars and claims she might purse a Louise Redknapp rematch after all only to have Denise van Outen eat some crow!
Final result: Danielle Lineker def. Kym Valentine KO5.
Katya Jones vs Dannii Minogue (BBU Independent vs Downunder Boxing) (5-3, 5 KO vs 11-6, 11 KO) Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Russian dancer Katya Jones is ready to join the elite conversation and vows to dismiss the ACB legend Dannii Minogue tonight but BBU TV's Denise van Outen warns her not to underestimate the Australian singer who seeks revenge following a tough loss to Holly Hagan. Dannii's the ultimate cougar of celebrity boxing however she can still dish out a mean punch and relies on her AWUBA bantamweight & featherweight past to reject all the rumours about her looming retirement: "I've heard this nonsense for years, let me get this straight, I might have lost to one plastic whore last time out but I'm gonna destroy this Russian skank and we're gonna see how much plastic spills out of her lips tonight, shall we?" (giggles).
Katya Jones wears a navy blue bikini set with red trim & silver gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a high ponytail. Dannii Minogue wears a golden sports bra, neon green hip-huggers & golden gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a sleek ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Round 1: Dannii jumps into a trigger-happy action trying to set up the head-hunting bash but Katya's supreme footwork leaves her chasing shadows as the singer keeps pushing with her aggressive ideas. Katya slips by the initial onslaught and begins to outbox the veteran on the counter tagging the fellow brunette's chin but Dannii refuses to back off and nails the dancer with the biggest punch of the lot that finally triggers a genuine war of attrition come the final minute. Both women snap each other's head back and drive in a shot on the chest before Minogue spins Jones to the side with one nasty hook on the temple too many. Katya tries to respond over the top but gets beaten for another wild punch and Dannii backs her into the corner where she duly cleans out her tummy to win the round outright.
Round 2: Dannii dominates another head-hunting exchange as Katya has to rely on her footwork before she sticks a menaingful response in the singer's midsection. However Minogue barges the Russian with a funky elbow in the chest and controls the subsequent phone booth dispute beating the younger brunette in punch-for-punch exchange. Then again she's unable to break the Russian's resilience and barks in anger once the dancer keeps plucking her over the top during the second minute. Back & forth tussle leads into a clash of heads but Katya beats the ref and nails the Aussie cougar on the nose before catching her with barely legal gut shot that cripples Minogue into loud spasms right at the bell.
Round 3: Katya comes in hot but gets outboxed in the close range again and only recovers her mojo once she uses her supreme mobility to stay just out of the singer's zone down the stretch. Dannii keeps pushing along with her funky jabs and seemingly outworks the Russian with room to spare but she fails to inflict true physical damage on her foe and struggles to connect with her punches while Jones rattles her to the body come the final minute. It might be too late to steal the round on points but Minogue has a hard time embracing that body assault especially after getting plugged in the solar plexus that allows Katya to rain unanswered menace in the last twenty odd seconds with the Aussie cougar wincing in considerable pain and unable to even lock a proper clinching stalemate.
Round 4: More body thumping leaves Minogue glued into the dancer's torso as the early gut hole punch throws the Aussie off balance and allows Jones to take over from the opening bell for a change. She duly pancakes the singer's midriff and that's more than enough to make the cougar look cougar-ish enough. Moreover Katya lets it rip in swarming fashion and drops Dannii butt-in-ropes come the second minute where she continues to land her shots in speed dial fashion. Minogue survives the initial burst but she can't clinch her rival forever and remains glued to the ropes when Jones nails her in the chops again taking full advantage of Dannii's lack of response. The former ACB champion can still take a mean punch but not that many as she wobbles into spasms and can barely hide those soft knees buckling underneath every punch from the raging dancer. Ugh! Ref pulls Katya away at the bell and she's not happy about it whatsoever!
Round 5: Minogue doesn't have the speed to avoid Katya's looming rush and gets picked off on the boobs with the Russian punching the reeling foe at will before she finds that piledriver hook on the jaw that drops Dannii's guard for good. The Aussie veteran tries to swing back but gets caught with a right hook on the exposed temple and Katya manages to add another wild shot on the ear from the other side THAT SENDS MINOGUE CRASHING DOWN ON HER KNEES!! Ugh! Big time shot from the Russian who waltzes back to her corner and expects the singer to be counted out... but Minogue gets back up at seven even though she remains rattled. Ref ponders whether to stop the bout but Jones yells out she wants to finish this bytch without any help so the action gets resumed... Dannii tries to raise her arms but she's too slow for Katya's reach and eats a left/right combo on the lips before the Russian turns her lights OUT with a brutal combo follow up on the ear & temple area... MINOGUE CRUMBLES TO HER SIDE with eyes closed and this time the ref doesn't even bother with the count! KO5 Katya Jones!!!
AFTER: Katya shouts something to the camera in her native Russian before performing a twerking dance piece over the fallen Australian cougar however BBU TV's Denise van Outen wants to know what her plans are going forward: "Look, I'm going all the way! Things are getting delayed but I still plan to become the flyweight champion within the next six months... okay, make that twelve months! Whatever! Enough of these wannabe Instagram models making all the noise! Diana Korkunova claims to be the best Russian in BBU? Sigh... she doesn't have to translate my challenge alright! How about we settle it the Russian way?" (winks).
Final result: Katya Jones def. Dannii Minogue KO5.
