(27-23, 21 KO vs 3-2, 3 KO)
Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: American model Scarlett Leithold follows up on her upset win over Rochelle Humes and accepts the bare knuckle challenge from another member of The Saturdays, everyone's favorite Irish redhead Una Healy. The small ring is set up in undisclosed location in Dublin where Una is joined by former(?) frenemy Nadia Forde who is rumoured to be in line for a crack at Leithold herself.
Scarlett never fought in BK rules before but it's not a problem: "It doesn't take much to find the groove. I'm gonna bust her up with my first combo and they can send me other clones after that. Don't bet against my sweet blonde looks, I'm a mean bytch inside alright!"
Una Healy wears a green crop top, micro jeans shorts & white tape wrapped around her hands. Long auburn red hair tied in a high ponytail. Scarlett Leithold wears a US stars & stripes crop top, micro jeans shorts & blue tape wrapped around her hands. Long blonde hair tied in a braid. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds.
Scarlett finds the early groove and swings a couple of heavy hooks into the singer's face but doesn't follow on that start so maybe she's not exactly familiar while throwing the bare hands but the brief pause allows Una to find immediate response and she catches the model to the body by surprise. Scarlett takes a couple of steps back before loading up to reponse however Healy gets there first and smacks a right cross on the nose that dumps the blonde onto the ropes. Due to the venue constraints the ring is smaller and Scarlett gets caught up in a flurry of point-blank range punches as Una cranks up the attack to indicate she rules on the Irish soil; Nadia Forde gets vocal together with the patrons and Scarlett can only apply the earmuff cover to drift miles away from another upset success. She remains buried in this position for remainder of the round while Healy actually isn't best pleased she didn't make the tourist bleed in the opening round.
More luck for the Irish faithful who lands a couple of hard licks on the nose and stuffs Scarlett in the center of the ring. The younger woman swings over the top but doesn't find her range fast enough and eats a vicious uppercut on the jaw instead. Una yells out in delight and drops a right-over-right to leave a visible mark on the American's brow ridge. Ugh! Scarlett stumbles back to the ropes and gets swamped by another slugging drive as Healy outworks her in heads up duel. The crowd is handed a back & forth affair which earns Una a swollen lip however she inflicts more damage on Scarlett's brow ridge before a right hook catches the model on the nose and makes her gurgle in pain. Una fires downstairs to add to her advantage and carves the midsection into more visible lumps. Ugh! Leithold is fuming at the bell but her bare knuckle debut is really slow to get going here.
Scarlett smacks a couple of promising hooks early in the third but has a hard time dropping that one big punch even against a much older opponent. Una is still quick on her feet and she pummels the model's midriff in the opening minute driving her onto the ropes again. Leithold locks her in a thai clinch and refuses to let go before landing a vicious harpoon around the elbows after all. Healy struggles to find separation and both women spend the second minute wrestling along the ropes more than anything else before Scarlett shoves the local favorite onto the turnbuckle and finally slices her guard to silence the crowd. She lands several hard shots on the singer's face and slumps her into noticeable spasms come the bell. Ugh! Una avoids major damage to her face though and vows immediate revenge in the fourth...
Here comes the Irish Pride... Una goes into a jabbing overdrive and whacks the blonde straight up but Scarlett accepts the slugging script hoping to simply blow her away through supreme performance. Both women tear it down knocking each other around and even Denise van Outen in the BBU TV booth is unsure whether the Irish veteran can last survive this war of attrition... blood gets spilled from Una's lips... followed by a wild hook that tears a nasty gash under the blonde's eye.... and Una takes it from there blasting single shots into Scarlett's face and the bare knuckles still inflict the intended damage as Leithold begins to gurgle in pain come the final minute before checking down on the ropes while Una swings and misses but keeps the younger woman totally under wraps. Ugh! Scarlett leaks more blood from the gash under the left eye and almost stumbles down onto her knees shorty before the bell as the Irish singer whacks her with few extra hits to run away with the round.
Scarlett gets up for the fifth but doesn't show much aggressive ideas and bellows out behind another earmuff when Una smacks her with a quick double. It doesn't take much to open the wound under the eye again and Leithold kinda slumps into accepting reality she's not rising above adversity.. not when Una adds another huge lump on the other side before driving a harpoon on the solar plexus. Ugh! Scarlett slides onto the ropes and drops her arms low enough a left hook catches her on the nose and causes more blood spillage... DOWN GOES THE TOURIST!!! The new wound breaks the model's resistance while Una shakes her right hand as if she maybe cracked a bone there but Scarlett is unable to notice that as she smears the red paint over her face and slumps onto her side indicating she's done here. A hard bare knuckle boxing lesson indeed! KO5 Una Healy!!!
AFTER: Huge win for the Irish veteran who claims she had plenty of juice left in the tank: "Maybe Rochelle simply underestimated that bimbo? I shook her up from the start and guess Nadia might come in for garbage time and send her back to LA. Whatever. My job is done here... for now. I challenge anyone who thinks I'm too old or washed up into a classic bare knuckle brawl. You know where to find me!" (winks).
Meanwhile Scarlett slowly comes around to have the medical team attend to her cuts and she's not exactly beaming with confidence when Nadia Forde tries to get into her face. Eventually both women agree to battle it out if only Leithold doesn't exactly remember the details of her approval having enjoyed a bottle of whisky over the limit during the VIP afterparty.
Official Result: Una Healy def. Scarlett Leithold KO5.
