This fight is all about history and the BBU lightweight title, Lisa Maffia challenges Alessandra Ambrosio for the title with both holding the record for most defences of the title, can Lisa stop Alessandra overtaking her or will Alessandra claim the record for her?
Lisa is 39 years old; she stands 5'7 and holds a record of 30 wins, 25 by knockout, 34 defeats with 1 draw, she is a former BBU bantamweight and lightweight champion, the only woman in BBU history to win titles in two weight divisions.
Alessandra is 37 years old; she stands 5'9 ½ and holds a record of 30 wins, all by knockout and 7 defeats, this is the 6th defence of her BBU lightweight title.
The fighters met up at a press conference and as they were led face to face for photographs, the intense stares was there to see, both very proud women wanting to be the greatest the division has seen.
Separated by their managers as neither wanted to turn their back on the other willingly, they were led to their tables so they could begin the event properly.
Lisa was asked how she felt about sharing her record with her opponent, she replied with a scowl "I f***ing hate it! I am the greatest fighter the BBU has seen, I whooped the arses of people like Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alesha Dixon and Jessica Schwarz on these shores, I am the one who beat the best to keep that title that s*** holds, so I won't let her steal my record without a fight!"
Alessandra scoffs and asks "how am I stealing it?" Which Lisa answers "who the f*** have you beat to keep it? Sophie Turner is a ginger c*** who i'd paste one handed, Dua Lipa is a bytch that will fade out soon enough, you beat some Italian w**** and I can't even remember the others you beat, till you beat me all of those wins mean nothing!"
That makes Alessandra chuckle, which makes Lisa glare with hate in those eyes, Alessandra says "you seem tone deaf to what everyone else thinks, since Dua was undefeated when we met, Sophie was too and Elisabetta was, see I have fought the best I can but honestly with you, I see this as a mission to rip the record out of your hands, I don't think you are the fighter you were even 2 years ago, so you should be thanking me for this shot"
That makes Lisa stand up and tells Alessandra to bring it there and then, with Alessandra looking happy to meet the challenge, though their managers clearly are not as they step in front of their fighters and tell them not to throw this fight away in a stupid fight.
It seems to get through to the fighters, who still exchange words but look to save the physical stuff till they are in the ring and fighting for the title as they step off the stage.
Fight night here in Wembley Stadium; Lisa is out first with Denise Lewis by her side, Lisa looks all business as she marches down the aisle, throwing a few punches as she seems to be thinking about walking down Alessandra already.
She is wearing a black sports bra with matching trunks and shoes, her gloves are black with white thumbs and her hair is braided.
Stepping into the ring; Lisa flexes her arms and declares to the crowd "the title is coming home baby!" To a loud roar from her fans.
Now out comes the champion with coach Taryn Terrell and cut woman Eva Carneiro by her sides, Alessandra gives the crowd a little belly dance before her eyes focus on the ring and a switch seems to have been turned to make her all business as she heads to the ring.
She is wearing a gold coloured sports bra with a black "AA" embroiled on the left bra cup, gold coloured trunks with a small Brazil flag on the waistband, gold shoes and gloves, while her hair is also braided.
Climbing into the ring; Alessandra poses in the center of the ring facing Lisa, who is hurling insults at her as Alessandra just smirks at her in reply, before heading off to her own corner to begin warming up.
They are brought to the center of the ring with the referee holding the title belt for them to see, both seem more focused on exchanging insults as tempers start to rise.
When they are asked to touch gloves; Lisa shoves Alessandra and a brawl nearly erupts if not for coaches grabbing their fighters and dragging them back to their corners.
The referee goes to each corner and warns them to keep to their orders or they'll throw the fight out, once that is made clear the bell is rung to start 10 rounds of BBU lightweight title action.
"Ding" both women are looking to stamp their authority early on, with Lisa maybe looking to prove a point as she steps in close and lands a straight into the lips of the champ.
Alessandra misses with a left cross and gets punished with a right to her body, Lisa knocking her back with three punches straight to her face.
The champion looks surprised as she ends up onto the ropes, Lisa trying to break open her opponents guard with a flurry of punches.
Till Alessandra parries a straight and gives her challenger a shove, then moves off the ropes where she begins to rely more on her boxing skills.
The fighters both land stiff shots through the others gloves to faces, with Maffia trying to move to the inside but keeps being sidestepped by Ambrosio.
The bell soon rings with Lisa telling Alessandra "that title is coming home to where it belongs you cheap w****!" Turning to her corner with Alessandra glaring at her.
Lisa's plan is clearly to keep in the face of Alessandra, ducking under a jab from her opponent to get in close to work the body.
The crowd enjoys the sight of the two going to war in tight, with Lisa surprising Alessandra again by using her left to bump her back and lands an uppercut that knocks the Brazilian onto her heels.

This time it's Ambrosio who takes the step to control the action, slamming a left across the cheek of her opponent and a straight that knocks her head back.
Alessandra comes on strong just as the bell rings to end the round, making her look at the time keeper as if they've robbed her turn to lay leather onto Lisa's face.
The Brit not bothered by Alessandra as she struts back to her corner, Denise heard to tell her that she wants to see more from Lisa, she has the champ going backwards but she wants to see those killer body shots that made her career.
Alessandra it seems has realised she needs to step up a gear, with a stiff jab now her main weapon coupled with her movement.
The Brazilian isn't best known for her footwork in the ring compared to her power punches, but due to her long legs and reach she is keeping Lisa off of her.
Lisa is still dodging several punches to get in close to work, but Alessandra being more forceful with pushes and straight punches into the face of the challenger.
Who misses with a right cross when she thinks she is in close, instead Alessandra quickly steps back before moving forwards with a straight that knocks the head back of the British singer.

The dying seconds sees Lisa remind Alessandra how dangerous she is, parrying a right and stepping in with a right of her own across the cheek of Alessandra.
The round ends with some trash talking between them before they head to their corners, Alessandra looks to have a spring back in her step as she jogs to her corner after a dominant round.
While now Lisa has Denise giving her a yelling at, reminding her that she can't let Alessandra off the hook at any point in this fight, with Lisa nodding as she stands up to resume battle.
The champ again starts off in control of the fight as she drills that jab into the face of her opponent, causing sweat to fly into the air from Maffia's head.
But Lisa soon slips under a straight and lands a right to the body of Ambrosio, followed by an overhand left up top to start driving her back.

The bell rings to end the round with Alessandra pumping her right fist to the crowd as her fans respond with loud cheers.
Her corner team look relaxed now she has dragged this fight back to all square on the scorecards in their minds, Alessandra enjoying the cool water down her head as she listens to Taryn.
Across the ring Lisa looks to be getting annoyed, she let's Denise work on stopping the bleeding from her nose as her eyes stay focused on her opponent, knowing she needs to get back on the front foot.
If pundits were writing off Lisa after the last two rounds, well she is up and forcing Alessandra to fight at more midrange now, both landing several crisp punches to the others face.
Lisa switches up targets though to swing a right/left combo across the jugs of Alessandra, who purses her lips to not cry out and has a pissed off look at the sneaky punch.
The ploy seems to work for Lisa as Alessandra tries to take her head off with an easily telegraphed right hook, which Lisa simply counters by stepping back and landing two punches to the chin of the model.

But when Lisa tries to swing a right hook up top; Alessandra leans out the way and counters with an uppercut that pushes Lisa backwards.
Alessandra starts to force Lisa back behind her guard, with the Beever's corner now the one screaming at Lisa to fight back.
The bell rings with both women looking frustrated, Lisa surprisingly as that was a great round for her to stop the momentum her opponent was getting.
But as she sits down; Denise is telling her to keep motoring forwards and to not just win the first two minutes of a round, she needs all of it.
The Girls Friday corner isn't a happy place either, Taryn yelling at Alessandra to show why she is the best in the world, not to let the pressure of history get to her.
Both women start off the round trading multiple punches as they look to stamp their mark on the other, with Lisa slipping inside after dipping under a right to work away to the body.
Alessandra retreats back and uses her footwork to get out of bother as Lisa comes on the attack, with Alessandra sidestepping her opponent and landing a right across the eye of Lisa.
A cut can be seen above that eye, making Lisa wince each time Alessandra smacks it, the champ keeping to Maffia's left side to keep targeting that eye.

The round ends with Alessandra telling Lisa "just f***ing give up bytch!" With Lisa defiantly staring through her good eye at her, the referee stepping between them to stop any afters.
Getting back to her corner; the Beever's corner has work to do to patch up that cut, the ringside doctor watches closely in case they don't think it is OK for Lisa to continue.
Alessandra hopes she can as she tells Taryn "that doctor better not stop me knocking that bytch out!" With Taryn telling her to calm down and finish it when she can.
A cheer rings out as Lisa comes out to fight; her left eye is still bothering her though as she comes out and gets jabbed onto it.

A left hook slams into the cheek of Lisa to open her up to more punishing punches, ALESSANDRA KEEPS SNAPPING THE HEAD OF LISA BACK TILL SHE LANDS A CLEAN RIGHT HOOK ACROSS THE CHIN OF LISA TO SEND HER GUMSHIELD OUT AND HER TUMBLING FACE DOWN, THE REFEREE CHECKS HER AND SAYS SHE IS OUT!
Winner and still BBU lightweight champion Alessandra Ambrosio KO Round 7
The record is broken as Alessandra wins her 6th title defence and is now on a roll of 11th straight wins in the BBU itself.
She is more interested in nudging the referee away and standing over Lisa with her arms raised as photographers catch this historic moment in BBU history.
Denise isn't pleased as she rushes over to push Alessandra away from her fighter, leading to some choice words between the two women as they angrily stare down.
Out comes Taryn to herd back her fighter, with Denise shaking her head as the ringside doctor comes in to check on Lisa.
Who is helped up after she stirs awake, blood stains the canvas where Lisa was laying, the ringside doctor cleaned up her face and patched up the cut.
Denise helps Lisa up and out the ring as she doesn't want to be around the celebration of Alessandra, Denise telling Lisa that she can beat the bytch next time they face off.
In the ring after Alessandra is wiped down and rehydrated, she heads to the ring center to get her hand raised by the referee and her title placed around her waist by her coach.
A microphone is handed to Alessandra as she is asked to say a few words on this win, she wipes a tear away before first thanking the fans for their support.
Then she says "when I started in the BBU, taking titles and records was what I set out to do, now that I have both maybe I should retire now" the crowd shouts no as Alessandra winks.
"Guess I better stay around and keep breaking records because of you guys, so how does me winning the FCBA title and becoming the first dual champion sound!" Yells the champ as she cups her ear to hear the loud yes from her fans.
Smiling as she hands the microphone over; Alessandra does a lap inside the ring blowing kisses to the crowd and fights back tears of joy.
Soon she leaves the ring with clearly big plans on her mind for 2019, is she the woman who can become the first FCBA and BBU champion at the same time?
