After beating Nina Scheucher at last year’s IFMA European Championships final to take the Gold medal, Sweden’s Patricia Axling of Odenplan Fightgym took a second win in just over three-months over her Austrian rival at the Baltic Muaythai Open in Lithuania today.
The two ladies met in the semi-final of the -57kg senior tournament in Vilnius today with Patricia taking the win via unanimous decision after three rounds of action (30-27). The Odenplan Fightgym fighter, Patricia Axling, now moves on to face Czechia’s Karolína Klusová in the final tomorrow.
Patricia’s Odenplan team-mate and follow SWEMT fighter, Camilla Danielsson, faced a tough test against #TeamGB’s Leigh Newton. Both of these competitors have been scheduled to face mutual opponents recently, so it was only a matter of time before the -48kg girls came to face each other.
Camilla, however, was the slightly stronger of the two, taking a narrow win over Leigh by just 1 point and advances to the final against Svetlana Spetsyan of Belarus who beat Finland’s Satu Mykkänen in the semi-final today.
