BEFORE: There are some BBU insiders who claim Lily-Rose Depp might be the biggest punchbag since Louise Redknapp and the otherwise petite model wants to silence those voices by booking a manageable bounce back fight tonight. Her choice is Rhiannon Fish who might be sitting below .500 record-wise but has fought some elite names over the years and shouldn't be discounted by any means. She knocked out hot prospect Mimi Keene last time out, the very same Keene whom Depp apparently wants to fight herself down the line!
Denise van Outen works the BBU TV coverage and she's joined in the booth by guest commentator Jorgie Porter for reasons currently unknown.
Lily-Rose Depp wears a black bikini set & white gloves. Long dark blonde hair tied in a sleek ponytail. Rhiannon Fish wears a navy blue bikini set & silver gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a sleek ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Lily gets off to a quick start and splits the brunette's mitts while trying to smack her on the cheeks and Rhiannon is careless enough to allow that to happen during the opening minute. She doesn't offer much mobility and Lily cases in with several crisp hooks before a flying right wobbles the Aussie to the side. Ugh! Lioness coach Mel B. loses her patience already and tries to ignite the actress to show some resistance but Lily pancakes her onto the ropes and lands more punches up the middle. She tries to extend her advantage and drop Fish into real trouble however the older woman eventually clinches her into safety before a late wrestling struggle for supremacy brings the round to a close.
Rhiannon wastes no time to bring on the much-needed heat and she catches the youngster over the top before driving a hard right into her nose as well. Depp wobbles to her heels and has to bail out of the close range tangle only for Fish to land more pesky shots up the middle and bump the reeling blonde onto the ropes anyway. Lily tries to fire back from behind the guard but her precision goes away and she soaks up more slugs from point-blank range as the Aussie tourist cranks up the jabbing volume and dominates the remainder of the round. She pours more head shots and slices Lily's guard frequently but can't find that booming haymaker to hurt the youngster outright and Depp still gives her a proper bytch stare at the bell.
Lily hopes to regain her mojo but walks into another jabbing frenzy and gets outworked in the center of the ring as Rhiannon's one-dimensional attack still brings her success. Both girls are happy to follow the head-hunting procedure but Lily earns the first noticeable lump under the left eye and blocks most of the brunette's shots with her face before bailing out of the slugging exchange again. Rhiannon pings her from both flanks anyway and methodically pushes onto the ropes where she offers a rare gut-checking switch that bends Depp into loud spasms come the final stretch. Ugh! Fish piles on more leather down there when she noitces the blonde's reaction and this time Lily refuses to seek eye contact with her opponent at the bell.
Rhiannon fakes another body charge and drops a nasty uppercut on the exposed jaw instead before looping a left cross on the blonde's ear to spin her sideways upon impact. She rips a right cross on the nose moments later and sinks Lily-Rose into loud spasms but she still finds one swing before the youngster can raise her mitts and offer a proper defense. She NAILS Depp on the nose and DROPS HER DOWN on her backside amid some loud cheers from the Cardiff audience. Uh-oh! Lily tries to shake off the daze and scampers back to her feet at six but she almost wobbles out of the referee's arms and is fortunate enough to be granted another chance. Rhiannon is upset she has to get back out there but hoofs the blonde's guard aside with the initial jabbing effort and cuts Lily below the right eye again which shuts down the youngster's resistance. Lily tries to clinch the tourist but only eats an uppercut double and sinks on the ropes in dead meat fashion so the REF JUMPS IN to stop the contest as Depp is on the verge of breaking down wholesale. TKO4 Rhiannon Fish!!!
AFTER: Routine victory for the former 'Home & Away' starlet who shakes off a slow start to deliver proper damage over a very hittable opponent. Lily-Rose might be a marketing slam dunk but she lacks genuine power to offer much upside at this stage of her career. She might be a popular choice for other girls looking for a cheap victory according to Denise van Outen. Speaking of those girls, Jorgie Porter announces her intentions to fight Lily-Rose in the upcoming weeks much to her co-commentator's surprise:
"Look, I've beaten Victoria frickin' Justice on the Ryder Cup and still nobody wants to give me a shot at the belts. It's been ten years since my only title bout. I'm done being the nice girl since it's obvious these slags are scared of my potential. I'm gonna roll over these younger bimbos and I don't care what anyone thinks about the strenght of schedule. Lily-Rose has the marketing value. That's the only thing that matters right now! See ya soon, bytches!"
Official Result: Rhiannon Fish def. Lily-Rose Depp TKO4.
