Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: The next edition of The Ashes is scheduled for January 2022 and BBU & ACB have booked a preview fight between two tiny blondes who are unlikely to make the big show on merit. Kylie Minogue will assume the captain duty in two months' time and she's ready to bring along the Perkins sisters according to the rumours but first she hopes to demolish Coronation Street stalwart Tina O'Brien who comes off a solid win over a fellow veteran Jeanette Biedermann last season.
We are live in the O2 Apollo in Manchester where BBU TV's Georgie Thompson is joined by Green & Gold's Sarah Cumming in the commentary booth.
Kylie Minogue wears a light blue bikini set & golden gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a curled ponytail. Tina O'Brien wears a black bikini set. Long blonde hair with bangs tied in a high ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Kylie becomes more aggressive early as she drives a couple of good shots into the fellow blonde's face before Tina fires back over the top to trigger a quick exchange in the center of the ring. The local favorite believes she can outwork the Australian cougar however she receives a rude wake-up call when Minogue scythes her across the mouth and lands more accurate head shots thereafter. Tina loses her rhythm and wobbles back which only allows Kylie to crank up the jabbing volume and pounds the Brit back to the ropes where both women still trade punches until they run out of steam in the final seconds. Huh! Tina bangs a left hook on the ear to keep Kylie away but swings over her head moments later and gets stunned by a late chin shot right at the bell with Minogue shouting back at FCUK coach Katie Price when she's pulled back by the referee.
Tina tries to dominate the early exchange but the older blonde drives in more quick shots up the chimney and leaves her weaving around in avoidance during majority of the opening minute before a booming hook on the jaw drops the Brit into quiet spasms and has coach Katie Price fuming out loud in the FCUK corner. Kylie jumps into a high-octane attack and pummels the subdued opponent onto the ropes where she laces her from both flanks and keeps dissecting the high-guard that eventually collapses come the final minute. O'Brien struggles to find a meaningful response and develops a visible swelling around her lips when Minogue bangs her with more venom and rocks her head back & forth in the closing stretch again.
Minogue seeks immediate breakthrough and squares up to the lacklustre Brit which triggers another back & forth slugging rally. Both women lack genuine precision but there's every chance one of these bombs finds the target and sure enough, a drilling right hook smacks Kylie on the lips and wobbles her on the heels which enables the hitherto struggling Brit to find her mojo and pancake more leather into the singer's face! Minogue tries to stay in the zone but eats more leather upstairs and bends to the side when O'Brien blasts her on the ribs before a low shot just gets the navel and sends Kylie reeling onto the turnbuckle. Tina drives a couple of nasty hooks on the chest and leaves the Aussie tourist gasping for air at the bell.
Tina finds more hooking success upstairs and outworks the visibly animated singer during another back & forth exchange in the center of the ring. Kylie tries to regain the early mojo but gets beaten to the punch and develops more swollen patches across her face as Tina bangs in hard leather on target and leaves the Aussie cougar totally exposed down the stretch. Kylie simply refuses to back off and pays a lofty price when the British actress pounds her butt-in-ropes and drops another low double around the navel before drilling a left hook on the liver area outright. Ugh! Kylie wobbles to the side with a whimper and gets crushed by a left hook on the jaw that sinks her on jelly knees. Another big right hand on the mouth DROPS HER ON THE KNEES seconds before the bell! The count is on!!! Tina struts back to her corner where she realizes the job isn't quite finishes as Kylie beats the count at seven and the clock expires moments later anyway.
Kylie vows to battle back from that knockdown and storms into a quick-fire attack but Tina slams a left hook on her nose and drives a vicious follow up on the solar plexus which drops the singer into all kinds of bother as O'Brien pummels her to the body in the phone booth and lands another brutal harpoon on the liver area that folds Minogue into spasms. The Aussie cougar tries to clinch the fellow blonde but Tina shakes her off and hauls in another hard punch on the nose that DROPS KYLIE ONTO HER KNEES AGAIN!!! Uh-oh!! Just too much punishment here for the Aussie cougar who sits down on her heels and makes no genuine effort to beat the count! How about that? KO5 Tina O'Brien!!!
AFTER: A good win for the Corrie stalwart but she really profited from Kylie's lack of a knockout delivery in the early stages of the bout. The Manchester fans don't seem to care as they celebrate Tina's hard-earned success if only Kylie can't quite embrace her failure and argues her case with Katie Price for whatever reason! Let's hope the veteran singer comes up with a better performance at The Ashes where she will choose the Australian line-up according to Sarah Cumming in the booth: "We can't screw this up! If England selects Samia Ghadie and Alesha Dixon based on fan survey we can't possibly do any worse! Even if Kylie picks her sister Dannii whom we all love but who isn't getting any younger. I mean, she would still whup Ghadie's ass, right?" (laughs). To be continued in January...
Official Result: Tina O'Brien def. Kylie Minogue KO5.
