Mandy Capristo vs Roxanne Pallett
(Lioness Club vs Kear's Kats)
(12-9, 12 KO vs 12-17, 12 KO)
Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Ewelina Lisowska stole the Lioness Club flyweight headlines in the last few months which triggered Mandy Capristo into seriously re-evaluating her understudy priorities. The shapely German thought she could cash in on Cheryl Cole's busy FCBA schedule and Heidi Range not getting any younger but Lisowska passed her on the stable pecking order and she's pressed into undercard duty against BBU crowd-favorite Roxanne Pallett tonight. The Cumbrian stunner knocked out Samia Ghadie back in October and returns to action full of confidence she can halt Mandy's winning streak: "I'm fookin' ready to take the filthy s### down! C'mon! Enough with these German bimbos already! I'll smash her up! Just wait and see!"
Mandy Capristo wears a golden bikini set with black trim & red gloves. Long dark blonde hair tied in a half-up ponytail. Roxanne Pallett wears a red bikini set & white gloves. Long dark brown hair with bangs tied in a curled ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Both girls seek immediate slugging breakthrough and waste no time whatsoever to punish each other in the proverbial phone booth. Roxy lands some crisp punches into the singer's face and wobbles her onto her heels which gives her the initial edge; she keeps working those feisty overhands on speed dial and drives Capristo onto the ropes but the German escapes at the last second and avoids betting trapped full-stop. However she keeps yielding real estate even though she lands some good overhands down the stretch since Pallett's aggression reigns supreme during the opening round and earns Mandy another rough encounter in the corner where the brunette blasts her on the jugs to extend her advantage.
Roxanne really wants to show everyone she's found an extra gear in her boxing and swamps Mandy into a jabbing buzzsaw early in the second; Mandy must have watched the wrong tapes as she is getting blasted out in close range to the point the Cumbrian lass taunts her verbally like she truly owns the betting odds. Capristo gets stuck on her heels and sinks underneath the slugging barrage with Roxy lashing out from both flanks; she cuts the singer up around the lips and drills a left hook into her nose... Mandy stumbles to the side and gets whacked by a vicious harpoon on the exposed liver area moments later... DOWN SHE GOES!!!! The Kats' corner errupts in joy as Roxy floors the in-form opponent but Mandy isn't done here yet... she battles back to her feet at seven and sends Gail Kim & Roxanne a lenghty bytch stare... the Cumbrian babe is ready to finish the German off though and races clear into another booming attack however Mandy clinches her and shoves onto the ropes before dropping a low bomb on the waist line that bends Pallett sideways right at the bell.
Roxy is ready to sink the German into another knockdown dismay but the singer shows improved mobility and manages to keep the fight in rare mid-distance where she outboxes the brunette thanks to her superior reach. Pallett barks in her efforts to maintain the slugging prowess but loses her execution from afar and eats a stray elbow in the chest that doesn't help her cause either. She's still keen to blow Capristo right up but bounces off the high guard too often and succumbs to Mandy's steady counter-punching efforts come the final minute. Another quick leap earns her a left/right combo success but Capristo steps up with a nasty hook on the nose and wobbles Roxanne onto the ropes where the singer still catches her with a late uppercut double to finally win a round on points.
Roxanne keeps coming after the German foe but leaks too many punches in a heads-up exchange early in the fourth and gets spun sideways when Mandy lands a crippling left hook on the temple. Roxy looks awfully outclassed when trying to swing it from her heels and only grazes the singer's flesh whereas Mandy tears it up from point-blank range and snaps Roxanne's head back repeatedly... she drives her onto the ropes in bulldozing fashion before dropping another harpoon set on the exposed midriff... Roxy tails off behind a desperate earmuff but Mandy barks in her efforts and shatters the stubborn guard inside the final minute... she bangs Roxy from both flanks and tears a small gash under the left eye before a brutal piledriver uppercut on the rack leaves the British stunner breathless at the bell.
Mandy continues to make up the lost ground and adds another small gash on Roxy's otherwise pretty face... the Cumbrian lass keeps flashing the slugging light but the work rate isn't good enough to overcome Capristo's execution anymore and leads into a head-hunting blast which drops Pallett onto the ropes soaking up proper leather abuse! Mandy just cleans up the ailing Brit upstairs and shatters her high-guard before one hook on the temple too many SENDS THE BRUNETTE DOWN ON HER KNEES!!! Ugh! Roxanne wilts under pressure and needs the full eight count to regain the upright stance... she looks very puzzled in the eye and coach Gail Kim shouts at her to "Hold firm!", but Mandy has other ideas and blitzes the vulnerable actress and just tears into her face with superior wrath... Roxanne gets pinned to the ropes and just can't lock her guard up so the German girl thumps all the resistance out of her within seconds!!! Roxy almost checks out while still standing before Mandy actually punches the gumshield out of her mouth and SENDS CRASHING DOWN for the second time moments later!!! Ugh! That looked like Pallett was out cold even before she hit the canvas so the ref doesn't even bother with the count! KO5 Mandy Capristo in come-from-behind fashion!!!
AFTER: That was a lights out finish from the German singer who plants her foot on the fallen brunette's hip and given there's no response from Pallett, it's safe to assume she got knocked out cold here! Huh! Mandy has shown incredible resistance and willpower to rise from the early knockdown herself and maybe she's not your genuine Lioness Club understudy after all? Even the ballyhooed Ewelina Lisowska would be proud of such a KO finish indeed! However Mandy realizes she's still listed on the second page charts and acknowledges she should have blasted Roxanne out without the knockdown hiccup: "Arghhh.. that was 8 out of 10... I'm younger and better than Roxy so that stumble I had in the second looks bad... some people will still doubt my craft but I'm open to more challenges... I hope Ewelina knocks Zara out too so we get 2 up on these tawdry Kats!"
Official Result: Mandy Capristo def. Roxanne Pallett KO5.
