Penella won her boxing match in the third round with a technical knock out when the fight had to be stopped due to concerns for opponent Nicola Mantalios Lovett.
Definitely one of the more dramatic and gruelling bouts on the night.
Nicola took the place of original contender, Luisa Omielan who was forced to pull out of the fight due to illness.
The event, organised by Punch Drunk Comedy and hosted by Rhod Gilbert, raised over £30,000 for Newcastle toddler Kian Musgrove.
Watch out for feature film coming soon!
