Intelligence wins fights. A difficult test for the young Briton, which she was able to overcome. On Saturday afternoon in London, England, Ellie Scotney beat the Argentinean Jorgelina Guanini by unanimous decision after ten rounds. With two scorecards of 96-94 and one of 95-94, Scotney won the World Boxing Association Intercontinental belt in the super bantamweight category.

A fight that began with the aggressive attack of Guanini, who came out determined in the plan to take ahead her opponent knowing she was the visitor. The former super flyweight champion kept up the pace until the end. 

However, despite “Jota’s” bravery, Scotney figured out her own strategy in the fourth round when she got a cut on her left eyebrow as a result of a headbutt on the shorter Guanini’s distance cut. The Brit began to carry the fight from distance and scoring the most effective and accurate counter punches. 

The point deduction that the local girl received at the end of the fight, did not affect the result because of her intelligent boxing. In this way, Scotney added her fourth victory in her recently started professional career. While Jorgelina Guanini dropped to 9 wins with 1 knockout, 4 losses and 2 draws.
