BBU returns to the Asian market after the pandemic restrictions are finally lifted. Tokyo Dome is your host for International Jewels Vol. 9 boxing card so let's join Georgie Thompson who anchors the BBU TV coverage!
Yuu Tejima vs Rhiannon Fish (Front Street Japan vs Lioness Club) (1-6, 1 KO vs 13-12, 10 KO) Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: We kick off the Jewels action with local favorite Yuu Tejima going up against Rhiannon Fish who comes off a fine knockout of another Japanese gravure model Miri Hanai last month. The Hallmark actress claims she wants to spoil some beach boxing plans her fellow Aussie compatriots have cooking in December but one has to wonder if she has enough raw power to handle some of the new talent emerging Down Under?
"I refuse to accept this narrative that I'm too soft to be considered a genuine contender. I know Mimi & Leah (Perkins) make all the noise ever since they started modelling but shall I rewind those 'Home & Away' bikini clips of mine? I deserve more respect these two will ever get! Dump them in the mud pool and let them wrestle other bimbos for a sixpack & ham sandwich!" (giggles).
Yuu Tejima wears a white bikini set & red gloves. Long dark brown hair straight with bangs. Rhiannon Fish wears a blue & green themed bikini & silver gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a curled ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Round 1: Yuu gets off to a fast start and powers ahead with some quick hooks up the middle leaving Rhiannon to stop them with her face! Uh-oh! Early worries for the Lioness tourist who struggles to embrace the early heat and gets bounced around the ring as Tejima goes for the unlikely first round finish like it's some foxy boxing contest scheduled for three rounds. She backs Fish onto the ropes and keeps working on speed dial almost hoping to catch the actress with one of these bombs but her precision goes away down the stretch and she runs out of gas allowing the Aussie brunette to clinch her into safety come the final minute. The Tokyo Dome crowd is still buzzing here as Yuu nicks in more body shots in the clinch and leaves the Lioness coach Mel B. fuming during the interval.
Round 2: Tejima looks to build on that early performance but she walks into a heavy right hand and gets stunned by immediate jabbing follow up as Rhiannon pays back the favor and makes the Japanese gravure model eat a faceful of leather and then some! Yuu grinds into a halt in the center of the ring and drops her arms too low for comfort which only allows Fish to work her right over. She pummels the older brunette onto the ropes where she switches low to punish the midsection and fold Tejima into loud spasms come the second minute. Yuu doesn't have the guile to slug herself back into contention and slumps into more spasms thereafter while Rhiannon mauls her boobs for a good measure. Time for Ayako Hamada to lose her temper in the Front Street Japan corner as Yuu appears to be hurt by all those body shots already.
Round 3: Yuu seeks immediate redemption but Rhiannon beats her to the first punch and stacks up more head shots on target to assume full control in the opening minute. Tejima tries to back off from the close range dispute but stumbles over her own feet and eats a right hook on the nose that makes her go all shimmy shake while the Aussie actress steps into a booming right hand and NAILS the Asian babe on the jaw moments later... DOWN GOES TEJIMA crashing down on her backside with a loud oomph! The Tokyo Dome audience goes silent and poor Yuu is all shaken up here as she battles through the count. She gets up at seven but wobbles into the referee's hands before sliding back onto the canvas. Ugh! That's all she wrote here! KO3 Rhiannon Fish!!!
AFTER: One has to argue Yuu is basically a sparring partner material these days and she looked awfully hittable once Rhiannon was able to stretch her elbows. The Aussie actress vows to head back to her homeland next month and spice up the domestic beach boxing action with Mimi & Leah Perkins stealing the media headlines for the time being.
"I hope these two bytches realize I'm gonna claim the bragging rights, no questions asked! Poor Mimi aims for that washed up rag Samia Ghadie but I'll be there to knock her the hell out too! Bondi Beach is all mine like it always was before the pandemic!" (winks).
Official Result: Rhiannon Fish def. Yuu Tejima KO3.
Sayumi Michishige vs Ola Jordan (Front Street Japan vs Frankie's Foxes) (3-3, 3 KO vs 15-17, 11 KO) Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Sayumi Michishige endured a terrible 2021 season going 0-3 and the loss to Perrie Edwards looks extremely bad on paper but Ayako Hamada is convinced her protegee can bounce back against the BBU crowd favorite Ola Jordan who doesn't exactly win a lot of her fights these days either. BBU TV's Georgie Thompson calls this a typical undercard filler however we could be in for some fireworks as Ola makes some taunting gestures during the introductions and claims she came here to whack the local favorite out of the building. These Foxes are usually too erratic for their own sake so let's see if the Polish dancer can snap her losing streak here in the Tokyo Dome tonight.
Sayumi Michishige wears a navy blue bikini set & silver gloves. Long black hair tied in a sleek ponytail. Ola Jordan wears a white bikini set & red gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a half-up ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Round 1: Ola jumps into a quick slugging start and pummels the singer with some hard shots up the middle but eventually gets caught over the top as Sayumi realizes she has to stop the losing streak by simply enforcing her aggression in the ring. Ola's dancing background helps her to avoid immediate danger and she accepts the slugging exchange hoping to cash in with some of these aggressive swings against a seemingly out-of-form opponent. The back & forth continues during the opening round however precision goes away and prevents any of these girls to truly dominate the action. A late clash of heads stalls the action for good in the closing seconds and both corners think they've won this round on points.
Rounds 2 & 3: More chaotic action in the ring with both girls applying genuine slugging pressure but the power supply just isn't there to provide a slam dunk moment for the time being. Ola goes outside of the box by dropping several body shots in the second round and she makes Sayumi move around in more hectic fashion thereafter alas she eats a nasty stinger over the top and begins to gurgle in discomfort when the Japanese singer connects with a couple of hook on each temple as well. More of the same in the third, Ola works to the brunette's body early but gets muscled out of the phone booth and has to think better off it when Michishige catches her on the fly with some pesky head shots down the stretch. Still nothing to choose between these two and Georgie Thompson thinks all rounds have been drawn thus far which is a small victory for the European tourist already!
Rounds 4 & 5: Ola drops the body hammer again and this time she hurts Sayumi outright, she drills into her tummy and moves up to plug one shot into her solar plexus before a looping left hook tears a small gash under the left eye as well. Michishige slumps onto her heels and gets duly pummelled back to the ropes where Jordan cranks up the jabbing volume and buries the younger foe behind a desperate earmuff. Ugh! Sayumi has to clinch the dancer in order to survive the late onslaught but she runs out of luck early in the fifth when a booming right-on-right opening FLOORS HER ON THE SPOT!!! Ugh! Disaster for the local fans as Sayumi hits the deck flat on her backside and can't quite believe what just happened here. Meanwhile Ola taunts some of the front seat patrons and makes more gestures aimed at the Front Street Japan corner during the slow-ish count. Sayumi manages to rise to her feet at eight but appears to be frozen by the exprience so the Polish dancer smokes her with more head shots and buries in the corner moments later. Still over a minute left on the clock and the leather barrage overwelms the ailing singer who bursts into spasms when Jordan splits her mitts and pounds away in fury to rearrange her face! Another deep cut under the left eye signals game over for Michishige as the REF STEPS IN to stop the fight!!! TKO5 Ola Jordan!!!
AFTER: Huge win for the blonde veteran who denies rumours about replacing Myleene Klass as Frankie Cocozza's personal... ahem.. assistant: "I can still punch some of these slags right under a rock they crawled from! And I have many fans who love to see me at work! Can't wait for more challenges!" (winks).
Meanwhile it's a grim atmosphere in the Japanese corner, Sayumi was presented with a perfect opponent to snap her losing streak that now extends to four and throws her contender ambitions out of the window according to unnamed sources within the Ayako Hamada stable. Time to go all-in with Asuka Kuramochi instead?
Official Result: Ola Jordan def. Sayumi Michishige TKO5.
Asuka Kuramochi vs Samia Ghadie (Front Street Japan vs Beever's Babes) (3-1, 1 KO vs 39-46, 34 KO) Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: It's time for the Jewels #9 Main Event where Asuka Kuramochi hopes to underline her status as the top Japanese flyweight force this side of Mikie Hara. The lovely singer shocked the BBU world when she knocked out Mimi Perkins in Melbourne two months ago and she wants to build on this performance at the expense of Samia Ghadie. The Corrie babe is set to enjoy a very busy schedule in the upcoming weeks having triggered a trash-talking feud with the aforementioned Mimi Perkins lately and some pundits believe she has to be smarter than that if it's actually possible. Samia has done it all in BBU yet Ayako Hamada claims she will end up on her knees begging for mercy tonight! Meanwhile Asuka still lacks the confidence to rub the preview in the British veteran's face and allows her manager to do all the talking instead.
Asuka Kuramochi wears a black bikini set & silver gloves. Long black hair tied in a half-up ponytail. Samia Ghadie wears a yellow bikini set & red gloves. Long light brown hair tied in a custom ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Round 1: Samia on the pounce early... she lands the first hook on Asuka's nose and takes it from there spraying leather from both flanks but the local favorite survives the initial burst and triggers a hectic response landing some nice overhands into the Brit's face. Samia barks in anger and ups the slugging drill hoping to break the brunette's resilience but Asuka spins away from her range and works a cross hooking route to shake off the threat. Samia still leaps into more phone booth contact before a clash of heads slows her down. Asuka recovers first to plug a couple of shots into the exposed midriff and pummels the Mancunian veteran back to the ropes with a crowd-pleasing burst. The Japanese fans need some outright success given how the card went thus far and Kuramochi basically steals the opening round thumping all those quick shots in close range with Samia unable to stop them at all. Bell.
Round 2: Another quick start from the Corrie stalwart who glues her mitts into the singer's face but leaves no lasting impression during the initial tangle. Asuka can seriously take a mean punch or two and she unloads the overhand response in the second minute that slumps Ghadie on the spot. A left/right combo spins the Brit to the side and she has to yield real estate in a hurry as Kuramochi bounces her to the turnbuckle where she picks up the slugging heat... Samia tries to fire back up the middle but fails to match the singer's intensity and soaks up more clean hits on her face. Ugh! She wobbles behind a tight earmuff which allows Asuka to ride out a supreme wave for remainder of the round. Samia cuts a shaken up figure at the bell but still throws a verbal dart towards the Front Street Japan corner where coach Kei Mizutani pretends she doesn't understand the Manc accent (which probably is true).
Round 3: More slugging pellets from Ghadie but she runs into a high wall here and just can't rise above all the counter-punching swings down the stretch. Asuka moves much faster across the canvas as well and spins away whenever the Corrie babe tries to crank up the heat. Same old story here... Samia looks dangerous in the first minute, flatlines in the second and gets bounced around in the third. She ends up hugging the ropes again with Kuramochi working on the numbers but even BBU TV's Georgie Thompson points out the Asian prospect doesn't exactly own a big punch overall. Still enough to clean up Ghadie's pocket despite all the angry looks from the Beevers' corner.
Round 4: Samia steps up into a booming right hand that finally rocks the local favorite and allows the tourist to run up the score for longer than 30-odd seconds. A left hook cuts Asuka below the eye and stuns the otherwise composed coaching staff and it quickly gets worse as Ghadie drops a hammer on the navel and finds major success punching the younger brunette to the body. Uh-oh! Kuramochi wobbles back to the ropes where she abandons the counter-punching drill for no vaild reason and allows Samia to smack her in all-or-nothing style. The Corrie babe gets vocal as she rocks the singer's head back & forth before another booming hook catches her on the temple and drops into loud spasms right at the bell. That's the best round for Samia so far and suddenly she's feeling very confident again!
Round 5: Here comes Ghadie for the kill... or not... she blows a left hook into Asuka's mouth but then shoots over her shoulder with the follow up and ends up getting whacked on the boobs instead. Kuramochi digs a stray elbow on target and lands one overhand on the nose to establish phone booth control. Both girls trade single shots in the hole before a clash of heads slows them down again... Asuka picks up the pieces first and slices the Brit's high-guard but can't quite push her onto the ropes until it's almost too late to make a difference. She barges Samia in the boobs to raise the complaints from Denise Lewis in the Beevers corner but that's a mere distraction and Asuka bangs away to clean up the Mancunian midsection in the closing seconds leaving Ghadie visibly out of breath at the bell.
Round 6: Fatigue kicks in for the British veteran who gets outworked in the early stages of the sixth and eats a brutal hook on the ear that leaves her seeking a desperate clinch. Asuka shakes off those efforts and plugs more leather in the cleavage draining her foe of more energy, she shoves her onto the ropes with one quick push-off and swings a left hook on the jaw that drops Ghadie into real trouble... look out... another left hook catches the Corrie veteran flush on the jaw and SENDS HER DOWN on her backside in the corner. Tokyo Dome errupts in joy and Samia is badly shake up by that chin-checker. She tries to beat the count but then slumps against the bottom rope and almost slides onto the judges' table here clearly feeling too dizzy to continue! KO6 Asuka Kuramochi!!!
AFTER: Front Street Japan avoids the Jewels Vol. 9 whitewash and the local media are ready to crown Asuka Kuramochi as the new flyweight hope outside of the usual JMD contenders. She took her time to get the better of Samia Ghadie but perhaps the Mimi Perkins upset victory put too much pressure on the Yokohama-based singer? The spotlight will only get bigger going forward!
Meanwhile Samia is back to operational status five minutes after the knockout defeat and claims she's coming to snatch some Aussie wigs next: "I had this lousy tramp on the ropes but she got one lucky combo in! Whatevz! I hope Mimi & her slutty sister get some tongue practice because they are licking my legs top to bottom very soon! Let's frickin' go!"
Official Result: Asuka Kuramochi def. Samia Ghadie KO6.
