Cher Lloyd vs Inna
(England vs Romania)
(7-4, 7 KO vs 6-10, 6 KO)
Results: BBU; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: Just a few months ago Cher Lloyd was regarded as the new force in the flyweight division but she never bounced back from the Contenders Six snub that set her elite plans backwards. She still wants to blow the doors off Cheryl Cole - her former X Factor mentor - but wins over Stephanie Davis and Alexandra Burke didn't earn her enough praise to warrant such a high-profile opportunity. In fact, she's won only three of her past seven fights so there's plenty of smoke around a small fire for the Gypsy stunner lately.
Success is one thing that Romanian singer Inna needs to restart her up & down BBU career. She's battled some of the top names with mixed results already but scored a good win over the ever-popular Perrie Edwards back in September and now eyes a true break-through performance against the fellow brunette. She's ready to follow the grudge rules and both girls had to be separated during the pre-event press conference when they engaged in a hairpulling tug-of-war that elevated this contest into a crowd-favorite even though Cher still enjoys the supreme support as UK citizen. But Inna's been touring the country on guest duty from day one so she vows to silence the iconic Wembley and basically bash Lloyd's face in!
Cher Lloyd wears a black basque top, matching knickers and red gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a curled ponytail. Inna wears a red one-piece swimsuit with black trim & deep V-cleavage and yellow gloves. Long black hair tied in a high ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the flyweight division.
Both girls waste no time whatsoever and deliver heavy pressure up the middle which has Cher clipping Inna's rack repeatedly but also eating a steady jabbing series that knocks her head back and wobbles her into a defensive stance once the older singer begins to find her rhythm. Inna comes away on top of the initial exchange and follows through upstairs which gives Cher more problems as she gets smacked on the lips and struggles to connect with her swings from the back foot. She tries to deke away into safety but underestimates Inna's speed burst and eats another vicious series upstairs which splits her mitts on the spot. The Romanian girl barks in her efforts as she drives Lloyd onto the ropes and catches her off guard with a belting switch on the exposed ribcage that folds the Gypsy vixen into immediate spasms. Inna keeps piling more hits to the body and buries Cher in the corner under a desperate earmuff late to silence the Wembley crowd on the spot.
Inna comes out flying and nails the sluggish Brit with a left hook on the eye which is quickly followed by more clean strikes on the lips that drop Lloyd into loud spasms. She tries to recover via the jug clipping route as she keeps missing over the top which comes courtesy of a supreme footwork from the Romanian singer. Inna dances around the hectic albeit ineffective opponent and whacks her with a cross hook on the mouth again before stacking her up with a belting hook on the liver area. Ugh! Cher wobbles forward with a whimper and meets a crushing uppercut just as she was about to clinch the fellow brunette. She slides back on her heels and Inna has a free shot on the temple WHICH HALF-SPINS THE RATTLED BRIT FACE-DOWN on the canvas! Talk about a brutal reality-check here for the hyped Gypsy vixen! She tries to sell the knockdown as good as she can but those teary eyes tell a different story when she gets up at six. Inna wants to blow her away right here and now but fails to land another power punch with Lloyd reeling along the ropes and basically refusing to engage. She survives the final chase but loud jeers from the audience indicate she's very much up against it.
It's hard to wipe that cheeky smile off Inna's face as she rushes straight at the embattled Brit who does her best to fend off the initial jabbing rush. She manages to clip the older singer's cheeks a couple of times but gets caught out with more head shots down the stretch and bolts into mid-range where Inna's forced to chase her around again. She fails in her pursuit and skims off the desperate high guard but keeps the pressure on and Lloyd only recovers into contention when she lands a lucky overhand on the nose after Inna's weight shifted too far forward to maintain the fast-paced rush. Cher blasts immediate follow up to snap the Romanian's head back and drills her on the tummy to finally show some offensive guile before the visibly upset rival tries to smack her upstairs herself but bounces off the top of the forehead and eats a brutal hook on the lips right at the bell.
Cher's found her mojo back and charges at the equally aggressive opponent and the initial head-hunting barrage leaves the Brit with visible swelling around the mouth which has been building ever since the second round. Inna follows through and keeps landing the crisp shots upstairs as she has every chance to knock Lloyd's head off but a belting cross on the solar plexus stops her in her tracks and Cher drills more promising leather on the ribcage to steal the momentum from the half-way mark. Inna slides onto her heels and struggles to find the dominant form when she's not bullying the fellow singer around which in turn allows Cher to bust her to the body thereafter and drop back to the ropes. A late double combo on the chin splits the older brunette's mitts and leaves her gasping for air at the bell when Lloyd buries one last shot on the jugs to underline her recovery.
Inna goes deep into Cher's tummy early on which catches the Brit off guard but then a quick hook on the jaw triggers a furious close range bash where both girls target quick-fire success and Lloyd manages to wobble the fellow brunette with a brutal cross hook on the brow ridge. Inna swings wide off the mark in response and gets WHACKED with another left cross on the nose that sinks her into rare spasms. Cher duly follows up with more head-hunting menace and reels the suddenly overwhelmed Romanian back to the ropes where she blitzes her straight up and rocks back & forth to add immediate swelling on the targeted brow ridges. Huh! Inna tries to find a slugging response but goes tailing off when she eats a double combo on the chin and wobbles into a hooking clincher on the jaw! DOWN SHE GOES!!! The older singer slides onto her knees with a loud squeal and bends her head against the canvas during a methodical count. She eventually recovers at eight but looks very much stirred here which Cher takes full advantage of during the final stretch. She bashes Inna's vulnerable guard aside and knocks her head around while trapping the Romanian butt-in-ropes. The clock is running out here but Inna finds no response and drops her gloves by her waist now so Lloyd just piles more head-hunting pressure TO FORCE THE REFEREE INTO ACTION!! He stops the fight inside the final ten seconds of the round as Inna leans against the ropes and bursts into tears of defeat! TKO5 Cher Lloyd!!!
AFTER: "Take that, you filthy ####!", Cher almost leaps at the subdued opponent before the ref shoves her away and sends the sobbing Romanian for medical chack. The banged up Inna hides her face behind her gloves and has to swallow more verbal taunting from the Gypsy Brit who then twerks some additional booty to raise more support from the Wembley audience: "Hah! I bet Cheryl Cole is sooo jealous right now! I'm still gonna whup her ass one day!"
Denise van Outen admires Cher's recovery but points at the worrying knockdown early in the fifth which means she can be exposed to some rough treatment after all. Her BBU elite career remains on track though and the social media trending indicates the 25 yo is well on course to maintain the large fanbase all over the country. Is it too early to call her a BBU version of one Tyson Fury?
Final result: Cher Lloyd def. Inna TKO5.
