17 Juillet 2017

JOANNE CALDERWOOD was unable to redeem Scotland's night as she suffered a loss to Cynthia Calvillo by unanimous decision.

Calderwood got off to a blistering 9-0 start to her professional career, but dropped two of her four previous fight entering the bout with Calvillo, who was on a 5-0 tear coming into what was expected to be the toughest fight of her young career... and it was. She acted quickly, taking Calderwood's back and sinking a rear-naked choke, but she couldn't cinch it down tight enough to finish the fight before time ran out.

Calderwood controlled most of the action in the opening round, attacking Calvillo's lead leg and working to establish her jab, while Calvillo was mostly relegated to a couple body shots until late in the round. She looked to move inside with strikes. Calvillo takes the back but after a scramble she has the armbar attempt in. Calderwood's nose is now showing blood as she stuffs a takedown attempt and jams a kick into Calvillo's gut. She couldn't get it and the final horn sounded.

Calderwood soon landed a huge hit to the back of Calvillo's head, with which the Mexican was happy to respond with a high five. Neither girl is able to land much of anything until Calvillo rips off a few leg kicks.
