Rhiannon Fish vs Sylvie Meis (Lioness Club vs Foxfire Atlantic Boxing) (14-12, 11 KO vs 22-20, 20 KO) Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Rhiannon Fish was looking to derail the Perkins tag-team hype coming off a double success against Japanese opposition last fall but a schedule conflict forced her to accept an undercard beach boxing clash against Dutch model Sylvie Meis who stayed behind in Australia after a five round punchout at the hands of Mimi Perkins earlier this month. The consolation prize also includes a rampant crowd support here on the Bondi Beach, something that was anything but a given if Rhiannon faced any of the Perkins stunners. Even Green & Gold's Sarah Cumming hates to admit it but Rhiannon has become a side story at the age of 31 yet there's always time to roll back the tape to her 'Home & Away' heyday. And blowing the doors off Meis might just be the slam dunk result she requires!
Rhiannon Fish wears a white, turquoise & red floral bandeau bikini set & black gloves. Long dark brown hair in loose waves. Sylvie Meis wears a green bikini set & silver gloves. Long blonde hair loose & straight. Both women are barefoot. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Round 1: Sylvie makes the slugging jump to catch the local favorite off guard and she powers ahead with a steady jabbing assault before blowing a couple of nasty hooks into the brunette's face. Rhiannon tries to react fast but gets overrun by the blonde's speed rush and eats more leather over the top until she gets backed onto the ropes. Ugh! Meis runs up the jabbing assault and gets vocal as she piles on more heat up the middle making the Aussie actress look very hittable in the process. The Bondi crowd expects Fish to mount a late comeback here but nothing happens until the bell except for the Dutch tourist pounding away in fury and bursting the brunette into loud spasms right at the final moment. Huh! Some long stares in the Lioness corner however...
Round 2: ...Rhiannon quickly gathers her thoughts and slips by the jabbing rush early in the second as Meis still wants to ride the hot hand and tries to smack the younger woman with a vintage piledriver. She fails in her pounce though and runs out of gas come the second minute when Rhiannon fires back over the top to finally dig some leather into the model's face. Sylvie does her best to stay in the slugging zone and triggers a feisty back & forth dispute that ends with Fish blasting her across the lips in a clear sign of superior delivery. Meis is brave enough to force this tactics and she pays another unneccessary price when the Aussie actress cuts her up below the left eye and plugs in the exposed navel deep into the final minute. Sylvie wobbles to her heels and eats another left/right combo at the bell which leads into a lenghty staredown between the two women but the crowd is spared any bad temper moments for the time being.
Round 3: Sylvie believes she can totally knock the brunette's head off and squares up to her in another slugging effort only for Rhiannon to blast her in the nose and glue her mitts into the blonde's face thereafter. Ugh! Meis tries to hang on in the exchange despite mounting evidence she can suffer a nasty facial wound before too long yet she works the head-hunting pursuit to trigger even a louder reaction from the Bondi patrons. Rhiannon gets nailed on the left brow ridge and briefly loses her flow but she gathers it up when she whacks the Dutch woman across the boobs and keeps drilling her to the body to offer a superior diversity of the attacks. Sylvie eventually runs out of steam in the final minute and wobbles forward to meet another uppercut blast that leaves her slumped along the ropes at the bell.
Round 4: Rhiannon comes in hot to dominate another slugging blast and she adds a second cut under the left eye which wobbles the older woman into genuine spasms. Meis finally thinks better off it and tries to fall back into mid-range but she only kicks up a pile of dust and Fish does break through to blast her between the ailing guard. She backs the Dutch cougar onto the turnbuckle and turns up the slugging wick piling more leather until Sylvie bellows out into painful shrieks and her mitts collapse by the wayside. Rhiannon has a free series at the wilting blonde and she SMOKES her with a right double on the nose that shuts down the Dutch resistance. Sylvie slides down on her backside with her eyes closed and rolls to the sand half-way through the count signalling she's all done here much to the crowd's delight! KO4 Rhiannon Fish!!!
AFTER: The former 'Home & Away' starlet is still upset she has to play second fiddle behind Mimi 'frickin' Perkins but she hopes this emphatic punchout of Sylvie Meis earns her KO of the Month award for lack of better publicity. And she vows to carry on stalking the local market to indicate it's too early to dismiss her as 'fancy gatekeeper': "I'm soo better than these IG models. I came here to make some noise and all I hear is Leah & Mimi this and that... and then you have these Herbert twins. The more the merrier, huh? Guess not. Man oh man, where does Kylie Minogue find those women? They don't have any real talent but PR machine does all the work."
Official Result: Rhiannon Fish def. Sylvie Meis KO4.
Mimi Perkins vs Samia Ghadie (The Bondi Babes vs Beever's Babes) (6-5, 6 KO vs 39-47, 34 KO) Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Local favorite Mimi Perkins took care of Sylvie Meis few days ago and she returns to the Bondi Beach to take on BBU legend Samia Ghadie who comes off a quiet 2022 season for her standards but vows to expose the Australian model as complete fraud: "Just because this girl has few thousand followers on social media it doesn't mean she's worth all the hype! I've knocked out this sort of phoney bimbos before! And I made thiis journey to do it again! Who's gonna stop me?"
"I will!", Mimi interrupts Samia's press conference which leads into slaps being thrown and hair being pulled before the security guards separate the two hellcats. Action switches over to the Bondi landscape few hours later where Mimi steals the headlines entering the makeshift ring in all white bikinu set & black gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a sleek ponytail. Samia Ghadie holds her own in all red bikini set & white gloves. Long light brown hair tied in a custom ponytail. Both women are barefoot. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Round 1: Mimi goes on a jabbing rampage to make sure the British tourist gets put into her place right away but Samia fires back up the middle and lands a heavy right hand on the jugs causing the local favorite to wobble onto her heels. Ugh! Samia carries more leather into the exposed cleavage and runs up the score blasting the stunned model from both flanks until she backs her onto the ropes and gashes her with more body shots amid some loud jeers from the Bondi crowd. Mimi barks in her efforts to stop Ghadie's charge but she remains trapped on the ropes for remainder of the round and allows the veteran to punish her tummy leaving several visible marks in the process. Uh-oh! That's not what the Australian crowd wanted to see and Samia has the audacity to tease them with some explicit gestures before walking back to her corner.
Round 2: Samia tries to pick up the heat with another jabbing rally but Mimi covers hers off and lands a vicious one-two on the chin before blasting the tourist on the nose. Ugh! Samia squeals in visible pain but stays in the slugging lane and aims upstairs to find the desired payback only for Perkins to catch her from the inside and flush her with another uppercut series thereafter. Ugh! Ghadie kicks up the loose surface in hectic retreat but she avoids the looming trap in the corner at the last moment and forces Mimi to slice thin air for a lenghty moment. The Aussie model eventually connects with the Brit's face but fails to land a proper power punch and gets clinched into safety as Samia limits the damage.
Round 3: The crowd gets behind the local favorite and Mimi clubs a nasty series up the middle but misses with the intended put away and wobbles into a gut-checking response from the Mancunian veteran. Samia gets vocal as she plugs the younger brunette in the midsection and shoves her onto the ropes with a not-so-fair challenge moments later. She ignores the referee's verbal waring and tears a left/right combo into Mimi's face causing a visible gash upon impact that makes coach Lauryn Eagle extremely annoyed on the spot. Mimi remains too shocked to fire back at the charging Brit before the bell and suddenly she eats more head shots up the middle and slumps into loud spasms at the bell. Uh-oh! Samia threatens to deliver a mighty upset here which silences majority of the Bondi Beach patrons ahead of the fourth.
Round 4: Mimi is furious she's having to work for this performance and suddenly she has to rush her attacks as Samia keeps coming at her hoping to inflict more damage. The overhand swing almost catches the younger brunette cold again but she fends off the Brit's charge before busting her in the chest and tackling the exposed midriff down the stretch. Samia digs her heels in the sand and she's going nowhere... until a left hook slams her on the ear and wobbles forward into loud spasms. She almost catches a clinching break but Perkins digs her elbow into her rack and shoves her back before looping a left cross on the nose. Ugh! Ghadie stumbles back to the turnbuckle and gets duly clobbered into a yelping heap but Mimi runs out of time to break her down in terminal fashion.
Round 5: Samia is slow to get up after that difficult finish of the previous round and she leaks more punches up the middle as Mimi kicks into a higher gear and pummels the ailing veteran from both flanks. She cuts her up below the left eye before booming another hook on the ear that folds the tourist into spasms on the spot. Another left/right combo catches Ghadie flush on the jaw and SENDS HER CRASHING DOWN ON HER BACKSIDE while the Bondi patrons errupt in joy. Samia wipes some blood off her busted lips and prefers to stay down on the sand during the count and she's been truly mauled in speedy fashion by the younger prospect in the end. KO5 Mimi Perkins!!!
AFTER: It's still too early to call whether Mimi can become a true elite contender, she's got some rough patches to deal with and remains less reliable than her older sister Leah but the Bondi patrons are just happy to see that big smile and the NSW native is happy to walk Samia around the ring before tripping her face down on the sand again. A surfboard choke adds to the tourist's troubles but at least she avoided a meeting with the local lads in the hotel room this time. That's what Sarah Cumming claims anyway but one should never trust Samia to stay out of the X-rated action for too long. Meanwhile Mimi's stable is ready to announce her upcoming schedule next week but apparently there is a small delay over the exact PPV distribution. To be continued...
