Elena Gheorghe vs Nadine Coyle
(Romanian Invasion vs Lioness Club)
(3-3, 3 KO vs 9-23, 8 KO)
Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Elena Gheorghe can only wonder if Ivana Baquero would have picked her for a flyweight title defense if she beat Inna in the Romanian Flyweight Supremacy fight back in October. She vows to support her compatriot's title bid tonight even if the partisan tensions still run deep in the Corina Caragea-run stable.
Meanwhile Nadine Coyle admits she's destined to enjoy a journeywoman career for lack of a better word. BBU TV's Kate Abdo claims it's generous to even call the Irishwoman like that but Girls Aloud reputation is still worth more than a dime around this country. Then again the Romanian entourage vows to use Coyle as the resident go-to-punchbag and it's down to Lioness staff to avoid a looming disaster. The betting odds are stacked against Nadine here!
Elena Gheorghe wears a black bikini set & yellow gloves. Long auburn red hair tied in a braid. Nadine Coyle wears a green bikini set & silver gloves. Long dark brown hair with blonde dye tied in a sleek ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Nadine realizes she's facing a determined opponent and tries to beat her to the opening punch but Elena withstands the initial jabbing drive and swings several crisp shots into the fellow singer's face. Nadine's guard struggles to embrace the attack and leaves the Ulsterwoman weaving around on her toes in desperate avoidance once Elena lands a nasty double on the chin. The shear punching volume gives the redhead a clerar edge and she hassles Coyle around the area until she drops her onto the ropes with a booming right hand on the mouth. Nadine tries to swing over the top but bounces off the top of Elena's forehead and eats another vicious double on the chin that leaves her gasping in pain at the bell.
More of the same in the second, Elena's slugging approach overwhelms the Irish defense upon impact and allows the redhead to bash Nadine's face from both flanks. Coyle's footwork deserts her to make matters worse and even some loud screams from the Lioness corner don't make a difference. Gheorghe drives the subdued foe onto the ropes where she bangs more scything hooks upstairs before landing a cruel gut shot on the navel that takes the sting out of the Irishwoman. NADINE TAKE A KNEE and looks to be in a lot of bother here! She takes the count all the way until the mandatory eight but Elena simply wants to run her over. She storms into another slugging attack but gets denied by the bell with Coyle trembling on the ropes and ready to be had! Woof!
Nadine swings for the proverbial fences but misses Elena's head and gets blown up by another chin-checker before the redhead slams a left/right combo on each temple. Ugh! Coyle wobbles forward with a whimper and gets SMOKED by another brutal uppercut on the jaw! DOWN SHE GOES!!! A loud thump off the boards signals the end of the Irish challenge as Nadine remains motionless during the count. KO3 Elena Gheorghe!!!
AFTER: All eyes will be on Inna's title fight later on the card but Elena takes her share of the spotlight for the time being. The Romanian Invasion stable has a sneaky good flyweight #2 on their roster and the redhead singer in question wants everyone to know she means business in her own right! Meanwhile Nadine has to be escorted back to the locker room and if she wasn't a fan favorite one would have suggested she calls her BBU career a day sooner rather than later.
Official Result: Elena Gheorghe def. Nadine Coyle KO3.
