Dannii Minogue vs Geri Halliwell
(Downunder Boxing vs Lioness Club)
(12-8, 12 KO vs 11-8, 11 KO)
Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: ACB featherweight legend Dannii Minogue refuses to call it a day and she enters the Crossover Preview competition hoping to take revenge on Geri Halliwell (going by Horner these days away from the boxing ring) dating back to September 2012 when the former Spice Girl knocked her out in six rounds. The rematch is long-time coming as Dannii is determined to set the record straight: "Look, this ginger tramp always enjoyed the spotlight despite her music career stalling when Tony Blair was still in charge. I'm shocked she hasn't quit boxing yet but guess she waited until I finally bust her up? Well, today is your lucky day! I'm gonna beat her face into a pulp and that's the end of it!"
Geri enters the Kooyong Stadium flanked by ex-bandmates Mel B. and Victoria Beckham who decided to take the trip Down Under for the sake of old friendship. Green & Gold's Sarah Cumming wonders why Dannii didn't challenge Victoria instead but maybe that fight will still come around come the actual Crossover PPV at the end of the month IF Geri doesn't blow up those plans by sending Minogue to the injured list tonight?
Dannii Minogue wears a crimson red bikini & white gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a braid. Geri Halliwell wears an Union Jack bikini & blue gloves. Long carrot red hair tied in a braid. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Dannii jumps into an early jabbing attack and forces Geri to react in hectic fashion which triggers a sudden war of attrition much to the crowd's delight. Both women settle for the head-hunting pursuit and give each other no quarter but it's Geri who lands the better punches and rocks the brunette's head in more efficient fashion. The home crowd didn't quite expect that sight as Dannii gets clobbered onto the ropes where she has to spin away from another trap and yields real estate while Halliwell tries to land a slam dunk combo instead. The redhead's precision goes away at the crucial moment and Minogue displays enough mobility to avoid more trouble; she tries to run it up Geri's gut in the closing stages but the comeback goes nowhere and the British tourist loops an overhand hack on the temple right at the bell.
Geri seeks more slugging success and piles heavy leather up the middle which clips plenty of the brunette's jugs. Dannii withstands the initial attack but keeps misfiring over the top as Halliwell closes on her from the inside and lands several uppercuts to establish more control. Minogue barks in anger as she cuts a rusty figure here and has to embrace another vicious attack with the redhead piling her mitts into the exposed cleavage. Woof. Dannii slumps to her heels and gets pounded onto the ropes thereafter which makes the Downunder coach Nikki Visser lose her temper. Halliwell works on speed dial to bury the older singer behind a tight earmuff and she achieves her goal but gets clinched late in the run which allows Dannii to survive the tough spell. She still looks shocked over Geri's performance here and there is some heated exchange in the Downunder corner during the interval.
Dannii hopes to finally stop the redhead's charge and she lands a quick double up the middle before another overhand tags the tourist on the ear and wobbles her to the side. Geri refuses to back off though and flies a left hook on the mouth however Minogue fires back with an uppercut rally that catches both the redhead's cleavage and the chin. The partisan support allows Dannii to pummel the briefly stunned foe onto the ropes and she doesn't need another opportunity to blow more leather into Halliwell's face. Ugh! The high-guard collapses underneath the attack and allows Dannii to smash unanswered haze that bends the younger singer to the side and slumps her into loud spasms come the final stretch. This is how Dannii reigned supreme in AWUBA for all those years and she pounds Halliwell into a complete standstill at the bell.
Geri racks up a promising start slicing the brunette's high guard but she's unable to shake off the local favorite and then eats a hard punch on the nose that wobbles her to the side and allows Dannii to explore the body assault route again. Geri swings over the top but lacks the big power supply and ends up hugging the ropes come the one-minute mark while the Aussie keeps piling more hits into her chest. Ugh! Geri hits an oxygen wall and tries to clinch the fellow singer to bide some time but Minogue bumps her off and beats for a right hook on the nose that folds the redhead into spasms. Woof! Geri can't quite strike back at the brunette and gets duly picked off with another uppercut rally as Dannii goes all-in to smash the Watford native into more trouble. Geri's head rocks back & forth as she's unable to stop the beating and Minogue eventually blows up hook on the eye too many... DOWN GOES HALLIWELL!!! Ugh! The Kooyong crowd errupts in joy as the former Spice Girl is downed for the count!!! A nasty shiner appears under the left eye and the proud Brit is visibly shaken up by the sheer volume of the Aussie assault. She still gets up at seven but Dannii is right there to finish the job and delivers immediate jabbing haze to send Geri to the point of no return. The high guard collapses by the way side again and Geri tails off into a tearful demise as Dannii begins to rearrange her face with brutal precision. Uh-oh! The ref STEPS IN to prevent further damage and even Geri's ex-bandmates realize that was the right decision. TKO4 Dannii Minogue!!!
AFTER: The ACB legend evens the score on Halliwell and calls out Victoria Beckham for the Crossover PPV however Green & Gold's Sarah Cumming is unsure whether she really means it. Let's be honest, Dannii might be better off facing a more demanding opponent so we'll see what BBU comes up with later this month with Nikki Visser suggesting they will accept anyone including the "plastic bimbo" Cheryl Cole if neccessary.
Over to Geri and she walks back to her corner in a straight line which must be deemed a success given the outcome of the fight. "Bytch almost broke my nose! Tell me again Mel why I came down here to fight? I should be laying some blonde airheads out and what do I get instead? Grr... Should have stayed in Milton Keynes...."
Official Result: Dannii Minogue def. Geri Halliwell TKO4.
