(Hawkeye International Sports Consortium vs Lookout! Boxing)

Now two legends step into the ring to settle a feud that begun all the way back in 2014, Claire Danes and Evangeline Lilly battle for a fourth time.

Claire is 39 years old; she stands 5'5 ½ and holds a record of 93 wins, 47 by knockout, 55 defeats with 6 draws, she is a former 4 time FCBA flyweight champion, a former 2 time FCBA bantamweight champion and a Tractorpull Hall of Fame member.

Evangeline is 39 years old as well; she stands 5'5 and holds a record of 51 wins, 28 by knockout, 30 defeats with 2 draws, she is a former 6 time FCBA bantamweight champion.

As said the first fight between these two took place in April 2014, it was one of the fights of the year, ending with Claire winning the fight with a unanimous decision after 13 rounds of action.

She'd then win the title off Evangeline in July 2016, that time she knocked out the Canadian in a more bitterly fought affair.

The last fight was in October of last year, Evangeline finally got a win over her American counterpart with a 7th round stoppage.

Both women were interviewed by Lucy Liu on the set of the FCBA Network, Claire was first up in the hot seat looking hot in a red figure hugging dress.

Lucy asked how Claire feels about Evangeline, Claire smiles as she replies "she is a great competitor, I have had many rivals, she is definitely one of the best I have fought"

She continues "but I know Evangeline is jealous of me, she was the queen of the bantamweights when I was the Queen of the flyweights, we were the super fight everyone wanted, well except Evangeline because she knew I was better then her"

Lucy asks if that is really true, citing the times both had called each other out around that time, making Claire chuckle as she answers "trust me Evangeline was scared, I proved that fact right when I beat her two times, the feud should have ended then but Evangeline is stubborn"

Claire is asked about the last fight, that dampens her smile a little, but she puts it back on as she says "Evangeline had one better night then me, I promise you it won't end the same way this time"

Next up is Evangeline, who is wearing a black dress; she shakes hands with Lucy before she sits down to begin her interview.

She is asked about Claire, Evangeline tells Lucy "that first time we fought still plays in my mind every time she is mentioned to me, we were two of the biggest stars around here and as I look back I see where I made mistakes, I could have knocked Claire back down to the flyweights and this feud would have died then and there"

Sitting up more straighter; Evangeline continues "I respect Claire but I don't like her one bit, after the first two fights she tried to claim that I wasn't worthy to fight her, I damn well got her attention after the last fight, now I prove I'm the better fighter in that ring"

Relaxing a bit; Evangeline is asked what will happen if she wins to tie this, she smiles as she replies "first I will tie this feud up, then it's up to Claire, I am more then willing to keep stepping into that ring with her till our issues are sorted, all I know is me and her won't be retiring together, sitting on a beach reminiscing over past battles, I'll always hate her guts"

Fight night; Claire comes out with Natalie Portman beside her, the two look confident as they head to the ring, with Claire waving to the crowd on her way down the aisle.

She is wearing a black sports bra, black trunks with a white waistband, white gloves and black shoes, as her blonde hair is a ponytail, this is very similar to what she wore in their first encounter.

Stepping into the ring; Claire pumps her right fist into the air on the way to her corner, before she gets fully focused as she warms up.

Now Evangeline comes out with Julie Benz by her side, she looks all business to understandably, her eyes only on the ring right now.

She is wearing a black sports bra with red trim, black trunks with three red stripes down the sides, red gloves, black boots, with her brunette hair braided.

Getting into the ring; Evangeline keeps her eyes locked onto Claire's, with Julie reminding Evangeline to stick to the game plan tonight and things will take care of themselves.

The fighters are brought to the center of the ring, the first time these two fought they were full of respect, now the anger they have for each other is evident to see as they stare each other down in close.

In the ring Evangeline tells the press "I won this! Don't let that bytch tell you differently" as she angrily gives her opinion on the result.

Julie calms her down; reminding her that she is one step closer to that hall of fame slot, making Evangeline hug her in reply, thanking Julie as she rushes towards another hallmark on a truly legendary career.

After posing in the ring; Evangeline blows kisses to the fans, they chant her name as all the anger is gone, now Evangeline is smiling warmly as she heads out the ring to head back to their locker room.

Plenty of questions though will be asked if Claire has a point or simply her emotions got the better of her?
