Scarlett Leithold vs Nadia Forde
(BBU Independent vs Garnet Gunners UK)
(3-3, 3 KO vs 11-4, 10 KO)
Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: American model Scarlett Leithold completes her mini-tour of BBU action and looks to bounce back from losing a bare knuckle contest to Una Healy by taking down another Irish woman Nadia Forde. However it was the very last result that prompted Nadia to throw her hat into the ring. The Dublin native was busy with pub brawls against fellow Irish faithful in the last few years as her boxing career was somewhat hijacked by the fact she was based in Australia where her husband played rugby. That's no longer an issue though and Nadia vows to enter the elite picture again with Scarlett targeted as the first obstacle on that route.
Scarlett Leithold wears a white bikini set & US stars & stripes gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a custom ponytail. Nadia Forde wears a black bikini set & green gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a high ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the lightweight division.
Scarlett makes the early move and kicks off a jabbing dispute where she manages to outwork the Irish brunette and smack through her high-guard with great precision. Nadia refuses to back off at first and only takes more hits before she finally thinks better off it and retreats into mid-range comfort zone. Scarlett swings back after her regardless and tries to land one of these vintage haymakers but fails to connect with her efforts even though she chases Forde around the area and makes her look extremely sluggish for the time being. Anyone hoping for a counter-punching response has to postpone their wishes as Nadia doesn't find much success with the American's bullying performance and it only gets worse when she gets whacked across the boobs to end the round.
Another quick head-hunting exchange in the opening minute results in Nadia getting picked off to seek a mid-range respite but this time Scarlett manages to follow through with some good hooks on target. She barges the ineffective Irish model onto the ropes and tackles her to the body once she decides to ignore the earmuff cover. Nadia swings back from behind the guard but keeps bouncing off the blonde's forearms and lacks sheer exeuction to fend off another Leithold jabbing series. The American tourist stays on top of her game and methodically works Forde over to the body come the final minute leaving the Irish girl visibly drained & upset at the bell.
Rounds 3 & 4:
Nadia slowly makes a jabbing progress to give the hitherto dominant American something to think about, the Irish model is otherwise too good of a boxer to be dismissed easily even when she looks below par and Scarlett didn't offer enough power supply to make it happen anyway. A cagey third round shifts in the brunette's favor when she lands several hard shots into the blonde's midsection and she pummels her back to the ropes where the back & forth exchange results in Leithold nursing a fat lip for her troubles. She comes out firing in the next round but runs into another jabbing wall as Forde clearly begins to settle into her contending groove. Scarlett tries to bully her around like she did at the start of this fight but eats a couple of vicious body shots and has to yield real estate to escape another trap along the ropes. She goes for another slugging try late in the round but walks into a booming right hand on the mouth and has Nadia mocking her efforts at the bell.
Scarlett gets on with another slugging approach but Nadia blocks off the effort and blows into her midriff with a drilling series before making contact with the blonde's breasts. Leithold is determined to swing the momentum in her favor again but only lands single punches into the brunette's face and wobbles underneath an overhand response with Forde going for the aggressive tactics in order to break the tourist's resilience. Scarlett hangs on despite taking few hard licks but eventually bursts into moaning spasms after she eats a left/right combo on the nose and bends sideways on the ropes. Nadia enforces her presence right there and drills the American into an earmuff stupor but just misses on the knockout punch and barks in anger when the ref pulls her back at the bell. Scarlett tries to send some confident looks into the Gunners corner but she's not intimidating anymore down there.
Nadia slams immediate left/right series into the blonde's guts and catches her on the fly with a brutal uppercut just as Scarlett tried to swing from the inside. She gets caught open and eats the punch flush on the jaw slumping on her heels upon impact. Ugh! Nadia duly pounces with another one-two and nails the ailing foe on each temple that SENDS LEITHOLD DOWN FOR THE COUNT!!! The American model crashes flat on her back and can only sit up half-way through the count still looking all dazed & confused! Will she make a last-ditch effort to beat the count? No, she won't! KO6 Nadia Forde!!!
AFTER: It was a good start from Scarlett but she eventually got outboxed by the better woman and has to take a second consecutive Irish loss on the chin. Meanwhile the Garnet Gunners are quick to suggest Raven Lyn should fight Scarlett on the upcoming PPV even though BBU TV's Kate Abdo claims that's a tactical tease that would be ill-advised to accept. However Scarlett didn't beat former champion Rochelle Humes for nothing recently so she vows to show up in top shape and add one last chapter to her BBU test session.
Official Result: Nadia Forde def. Scarlett Leithold KO6.
