Vera Brezhneva vs Tamara Ecclestone
(4-1, 4 KO vs 3-2, 3 KO)
Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Both these hellcats are very eager to return to winning ways after their last outings ended in a high-profile disaster. Vera Brezhneva fell to Dorota Rabczewska in a "Baltic Trophy" match-up while Tamara Ecclestone got upset by popular veteran Alesha Dixon whose best days are supposedly well behind her. It's redemption time here in the Cardiff Arena with Tamara's Croatian heritage adding the Slavic touch to this otherwise exotic clash between two elite hopefuls.
Tamara tries to tease the blonde singer into losing her temper during the pre-event press conference but Vera has seen it all courtesy of Rabczewska last December and dismisses the socialite as a "complete fool". Tamara claims she deserves respect and lashes out at the older girl only to be held back by the BBU security team. "Money can't buy class", Denise van Outen shakes her head in disgust but it's an open secret that several of Ecclestone's peers simply hate her guts to the limit!
Vera Brezhneva wears a white & black horizontally striped bikini set and red gloves. Long blonde hair in loose waves. Tamara Ecclestone wears a yellow bikini set and black gloves. Dark brown hair loose & straight. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the bantamweight division.
Both girls are two of the tallest banatmweights around but it's the intensity that steals the show during the opening minute as Tamara shows the older foe no sympathy whatsoever and gallops into her midsection with a proper jabbing charge. She almost head-butts Brezhneva in the proccess as she really leans on her but the action continues with the brunette picking off her prey and outworking in close range. BBU TV's Denise van Outen wonders whether the Ukrainian singer has recovered from the Baltic Trophy showdown but she's well aware of Tamara's high-octane tactics so there's more to this socialite dominance here; Vera eventually concedes defeat in the slugging test but cliches Ecclestone to buy herself some time and see out the clock.
Tamara tells the referee to watch out for the clinching menace but she prevents it herself when she NAILS Brezhneva with a wild hook seconds into the second round and Vera simply sinks on her knees like she's been struck by a genuine lightweight! Another quick blow from the left tears a patch over the right eye and sends her into a tail-spin which allows Ecclestone to pounce on a clearly wounded prey next! She bullies the blonde onto the ropes and cranks up the heat to dig her mitts into the singer's body however the apparent red mist mode affects the precision and doesn't punish Brezhneva cruelly enough to turn her into a proper punchbag mode. Ugh! Tamara misses a wild hook and almost wobbles onto the turnbuckle while Vera flies in with an uppercut and escapes from the corner in a stunning fashion. Tamara's power-first approach leaves her exposed in the footwork department while the blonde shows supreme agility to bide her time in mid-distance and see out another difficult period.
Tamara's very much the dominant force in the ring but she's let Vera off the hook a couple of times already and that makes her VERY upset indeed. She launches another hectic jabbing pursuit but Brezhneva's experienced enough to weather the storm and jump on the counter-punching train when neccessary. Even the verbal tease doesn't throw her off that plan and one must say Tamara really wants to lure her into a close range trap. Instead she simply keeps cutting thin air as footwork becomes the name of the game... and the dark-haired socialite loses that game hand over fist... she eats an eye-opening left/right combo which Vera underlines with a beaming smile before blasting the brunette on the mouth with a nasty hook... Ugh! Ecclestone's feet seemed glued to the canvas at that point and she can barely escape a follow-up from the left which still bounces off the top of her forehead right at the bell.
Brezhneva still prefers to see out the Ecclestone charge in mid-distance and Denise van Outen believes the socialite's tactics will never change since she doesn't have a genuine Plan B available. What's more, she gets visibly annoyed over the fact she can't enforce her wrath on the older woman and begins to wear out in a fruitless pursuit. Meanwhile Vera steadies her counter-punching production before working the front jab to move the brunette around. Tamara leaps forward seeking immediate hooking success upstairs but gets caught with a right hook on the jaw and stumbles to the side where the singer comes crashing down on her and splits her mitts in a sudden change of jabbing pace. She adds a couple of half-uppercuts on the chin and signs off her late-rund production with a piercing shot to the solar plexus that leaves Ecclestone breathless at the bell.
Tamara finally thinks better off it and refuses to engage in another wild slugging pursuit but this only opens the door for Vera to move further ahead with her stalking jabs. The Ukrainian babe clearly dominates the mid-distance tussle and the scary part is that she doesn't look awfully committed to her actions. Denise van Outen thinks she's got plenty up her sleeve left and the only question is when Ecclestone loses her temper. The socialite keeps her composure through the back & forth single-punching trade which is admireable but drops her further away from adding to that early fight brilliance. And when Brezhneva ups the tempo during the final thirty odd seconds, she can easily pick the lethargic brunette off from both flanks and back her into the ropes just as the clock expires.
Ecclestone abandons the cautious plan and leaps for another charge but Brezhneva is that little quicker while stretching out for the punch and NAILS the English socialite with a left hook before blasting her on the nose a split second later. Ugh! Tamara screams out in pain but finds no response and the blonde carves her mitts into the ribcage to bend the suddenly vulnerable rival forward to the point it's all happening around Ecclestone's midsection. Vera actually head-butts the brunette during the wild offensive push but the referee decides to stay out of it and the blonde simply pounds her foe butt-in-ropes within the next few seconds. Tamara gurgles her struggles but she can't shake off the aggressive singer and eats a couple of deep blows to the liver area that bend her against the turnbuckle with even a louder scream than before. And Vera WHACKS her on the jaw with a piledriver from the left before thumping her on the nose with a follow-up from the other side... AND TAMARA SLIDES DOWN ON HER BUM as a result of that double blast!!! Ugh! That carried some power but those strikes to the body also punished the socialite in their own way. Ecclestone remains seated in the corner and hugs her aching ribs during the count and simply doesn't make an attempt to get back onto her feet anymore! KO6 Vera Brezhneva!!!
AFTER: The blonde stunner is back onto winning way after the Baltic Trophy stumble. And she did it the hard way... or the smart way if you listen to her post-fight interview: "One needs to have brains to win these fights", she tells Denise van Outen with the help of an interpreter, "This brunette bimbo thought she can impress me with her gloves. That's for amateurs! This is the real stuff. I bet Doda would wipe the floor with her as well! She's all talk and little girls could be impressed or even scared by that but I'm a real war goddess! I did what I had to do. I outsmarted her in the ring and guess what, maybe Una Healy comes around to fight me on the next PPV? That's one girl Doda could never beat. I'm gonna stick it right up her ####!" (laughs).
Tamara Ecclestone was unavailable for comments as she stormed out of the ring as soon as she was officially declared the loser of this contest.
Final result: Vera Brezhneva def. Tamara Ecclestone KO6.
