Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Former BBU bantamweight champion Imogen Thomas has entered the gatekeeper status of her career but remains a valuable target on Lottie Moss' hit list as the youngest member of the Lioness Club hopes to break out in contending fashion sooner rather than later. She is rumoured to target Helen Flanagan before the year is over and claims she needs as many fights as possible to catch all the media buzz going forward: "I've knocked out Nicola Roberts last month and I don't consider Doda a true rival for me. Just ask her how she feels after our last sparring session! I'm going all in on some of these former champions and once Charlotte Church finally relinquishes the throne I'll be ready to keep the straps in the Lioness den! There are only a handful of girls who can really give me a proper test! And this Welsh tramp ain't one of them!"
Imogen Thomas wears a purple bikini set & black gloves. Long dark brown hair loose & straight. Lottie Moss wears a pink bikini set & silver gloves. Long blonde hair in loose waves. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the bantamweight division.
Imogen gets the early jump on the youngster and outworks her in close range before looping a big hook into her mouth. Lottie wobbles to her heels and soaks up more punishment up the middle as the Welsh girl powers ahead with more slugging efforts and rocks the blonde's head back & forth. Moss has to yield real estate and stumbles onto the ropes where Thomas bangs a nasty harpoon on the navel and scores additional hits to the body. Lottie clinches her to stall the action but the former champion eventually shakes her off and resumes the head-hunting pounce leaving the youngster covered behind a deep earmuff for remainder of the round.
Lioness coach Mel B. is visibly upset after that poor opener but Imogen gives her even more headaches when she whacks the model across the lips and blows into her chest early in the second round. Lottie just cannot get going here and soaks up more vicious hits to the body before seeking a desperate respite in mid-distance. She manages to dance away from immediate danger but leaves Thomas chasing her around the ring thereafter anyway! Imogen taunts the reeling prospect and lands single shots over the top to keep Moss in hectic retreat until she runs out of space and gets sucked into a jabbing vacuum along the ropes. Ugh! Imogen cleans up the pieces and bangs more leather downstairs to leave visible marks on Lottie's toned abs come the bell.
Lottie vows to throttle the Welsh girl and finally sticks a meaningful drive over the top however Imogen is too excited to back off and leans on the Londoner with a jabbing haze to keep the action fairly even during the opening minute. Both women exchange hectic punches until Moss bangs a brutal hook on the brow ridge to wobble the brunette on her heels and takes off from there... she splits Imogen's high guard and backs her onto the ropes where she pays back the body assault favor and rips a series to the liver area before booming a right uppercut on the jaw. Thomas slumps on jelly knees and seeks a clinching stalemate for a change but Moss still whacks her to the body and leaves the Welsh lass gasping for air at the bell.
Imogen wants to regain the upperhand and comes in hot with the jabbing pounce but bounces off the blonde's high guard early in the fourth and gets outworked outright down the stretch as the model begins to apply the superior power supply. She glues the brunette to the spot and beats her up from both flanks which leads BBU TV's Charlie Webster to question what's gomg wrong with the former champion? Imogen is unable to match the blonde's intensity and gets thumped onto the ropes where she can only clinch the charging youngster but still eats a painful dose of body shots which shuts her down into a complete standstill come the bell.
Lottie's recovery continues as she softens the former champion with more body blows and slams a left/right combo on the jaw to drop the Welsh guard. Imogen wobbles forward with a whimper and gets clocked by a vicious uppercut that FOLDS HER DOWN ON THE KNEES moments later to silence the partisan Cardiff audience! Ugh! Lottie struts back to coach Mel B. with a beaming smile on her face but Thomas is not done here yet! She climbs to her feet at eight and yells at the youngster: "Is that all U got, bytch?". Uh-oh!!! Lottie races forward to punish the arrogant foe and manages to beat her to the punch which drills the nostrils into a seeping mess!!! That finally shuts the Welsh model down as Imogen stumbles to the side with a whimper and doesn't raise her mitts fast enough as Moss SMOKES her with a brutal left hook on the ear!!! DOWN GOES THOMAS!!! The Welsh pride suffers an unceremonial blow as the former champion crashes down to her side with eyes closed and that is very much that!!! KO5 Lottie Moss!!!
AFTER: Lottie has to be pulled away by the ref since she wanted to twerk over the fallen opponent and the Cardiff audience really disliked the idea. Mel B. enters the ring and calms her young protegee down so Moss finally accepts her embrace few seconds later. She still wants to give Imogen a walk of shame but the brunette is unfit for the job and has to be escorted back to the locker room as Lottie is given a half-hearted ovation from the Welsh crowd instead. She tells Charlie Webster that "Imogen should stick to fighting PageThree wannabees or Jesy Nelson" which prompts a furious reaction on social media from the ex(?)-Little Mix singer:
Jesy Nelson on twitter: "Blah! They can't wait to see me back in JMD!!! I'm soo ready for this!!!" #NewMe #TheFuture
Official Result: Lottie Moss def. Imogen Thomas KO5.
