Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: BBU returns to Dubai where Australian veteran Holly Valance is ready to showcase her gatepeeker talents against the highly-touted Brooks Nader who comes off back-to-back losses and kinda needs a morale-boosting victory sooner rather than later to justify the early career hype. The Louisiana model was thought to be the next best thing in 130 lbs division but she couldn't take the crown off Holly Peers and then fell to veteran Izabel Goulart which really raised some questions marks. However Brooks is back and claims she's ready to blow Valance away in the familiar beach setting so let's see if she can walk the walk... on the sand!
Holly Valance wears a black bikini set & golden gloves. Long light brown hair tied in a curled ponytail. Brooks Nader wears a steel blue bikini set & red gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a custom ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the lightweight division.
Holly wants to cash in on the fellow brunette's lack of recent success but she struggles to cover off Brooks' slugging burst to open this fight and soaks up a heavy jabbing dose before a left hook nails her on the temple and wobbles backwards upon impact. Brooks jumps on more quick punches up the middle and knocks Holly's head back while driving her across the sand onto the turnbuckle. If the Aussie entourage expected a slow start from the American they have to adjust on the fly here since Nader takes no prisoners and just rails the subdued foe until a desperate clinching stalemate finally halts her charge. She tries to shake Valance off to resume the pounce but gets caught with a low belter on the navel almost out of nowhere and Holly manages to delay the action long enough for the bell to officially stop it soon afterwards.
Brooks comes in hot and resumes the slugging pounce while Holly settles into trying to punch her to the body. The back & forth action continues until Nader lands the supreme combo on the chin and slumps the Aussie actress on her heels but she misses an immediate put away and barks in anger when Valance locks her down in another clinch. Both women wrestle for supremacy for a while however Brooks shakes the older woman off and slams a left hook on the nose to regain command. She tries to blast Holly back to the ropes again but can't quite find the power supply and allows the Aussie to spin out of the trap at the last moment.
Holly moves in to pound more of the model's body and the early attack stymies Nader's response if it doesn't really hurt the Louisiana native. Brooks manages to stick a couple of hard licks on the breasts before she barges Holly with a loose elbow. The Aussie veteran loses her momentum and doesn't regain it during the second minute while Brooks piles on the gut-checking heat to alter her strategy compared to the previous two rounds. It appears Holly can be more hurt downstairs as she fails to apply the clinching brakes and gets trapped on the turnbuckle wholesale. Brooks runs away with the beef thereafter and dominates a high-octane blast that cripples Valance into a standstill amid some painful yelps and most Dubai patrons are surprised the Aussie veteran avoided a knockdown there.
No such luck for Holly in the next round as she's slow to react when Brooks nails her to the body again and simply drills the exposed midsection until the older brunette can't take it anymore and descends into a punchbag status. Nader wants a brutal finish and gets it when she drops one liver shot square on target to signal the end of Valance's resistance. DOWN GOES THE AUSSIE WOMAN and she's getting sand kicked over her head by the rampant American. The liver harpoon leaves Holly all finished and even the slowest of counts can't save her anymore. She is done and dusted! KO4 Brooks Nader!!!
AFTER: BBU TV's Kate Abdo doesn't feel like Brooks truly needed this victory as Holly is no longer a contender benchmark on either side of the globe but perspective matters and the American model admits that Izabel Goulart result was a genuine warning sign she might be doing something wrong despite the early success: "I'm open to more beach action for a while if the lightweight title doesn't change hands soon. I blew my first shot so I'll probably have to wait that Peers #### out but no worries, I'm not going anywhere. We all love the Dubai beaches so you know where to find me until my next Sports Illustrated shoot!" (winks).
Official Result: Brooks Nader def. Holly Valance KO4.
