BIOGRAPHY

Early Life

Callisto was born in Verona, Italy. Her mother was a waitress and her father a car mechanic. At the age of twelve, Callisto lost her mother to an accident. Her father was a drunkard and she had never been very close to him. After a few years her father remarried a young tramp with whom Callisto had trouble getting along with. Their constant quarreling finally erupted on Callisto’s eighteenth birthday into a full-blown fight in the house. Callisto beat up her stepmother so badly that fearing severe punishment from her father she ran away from home and never returned. Using her good looks, she quickly latched onto wealthy men and even used them as sponsors to realize her childhood dream of becoming a race car driver. A chance encounter with Stefanos Cosse (the owner of the IWFC) in 2006 eventually led her to the sport of female combat.

Fighting Style

A perennial seducer of men, Callisto is virtually hated by every woman in the IWFC. She grew up in the rough streets of Verona and was certainly no stranger to gang fights. While she never received any formal training in combat sports, her viciousness in a fight often more than made up for the lack of technical skills. Pugnacious by nature, Callisto relishes getting into catfights with other women. She loves to overwhelm her opponent using her comparatively large size. But her hard-hitting style can work against her if an experienced fighter has the patience and the skills to stretch the fight and wear her out.

Career in the IWFC

While working as a car mechanic in Foxton in the spring of 2006, Callisto met Stefanos Cosse and Réka Molnár who came to get her car inspected. A misunderstanding led to a scuffle between these two feisty vixens, and Callisto more than held her own against Réka who was one of the top fighters in Stefanos’ underground fight club at the time. Impressed, Stefanos tried to persuade Callisto to join the club. In June of the same year, Callisto was invited to Stefanos’ summer pool party. Anxious to establish herself in the fight club, she challenged Yulia Koroleva to a catfight. The Russian had already by then emerged as a dominant fighter and she made short work of Callisto, submitting her in front of all other women. (See “The Italian Job”) The loss to Yulia didn’t discourage Callisto, however. It only stoked the fire inside her as she went on to compete regularly in Stefano Cosse’s underground fight club between 2006 and 2008.

In early 2009, Stefanos Cosse transformed his club into the IWFC (International Women’s Fight Club). Callisto fought valiantly in the new club, winning almost all her matches in the beginning. During the 2009 IWFC summer party on June 7, Callisto and Paige Malonga bullied Netherlands’ Heidi Driegen into a fight. After beating the poor Dutch blonde, Callisto dragged her into the pool, drowned her, before choking her out cold. When Paige saw the fight had gone too far and tried to stop the abuse, Callisto turned on her and the two brunettes started another ferocious brawl which saw the fatigued Italian finally yielding to her friend. (See “Drown Her Out”) But one month later Callisto got her revenge against Paige in the first ever IWFC shootfight where she ultimately submitted her American friend with a hand-over-mouth smother, proving to her that she was the better woman. Shortly after, Callisto tried to seduce Kimberly Steele‘s man. They fought in lingerie before him and it was Kimberly who destroyed the Italian brunette and made her howl out her surrender. Embarrassed after this defeat Callisto left the IWFC to race cars around the world for the next year and a half.

Callisto came back to the IWFC in 2011 with a vengeance. She obliterated everyone who was in her way, even forcing the sexy Spaniard Catalina Yurena Ferrer to surrender her man after subduing her twice in front of him. Then on July 17, Callisto participated in the IWFC’s first ever beach volleyball tournament when she teamed up with Australia’s Stephanie Rose to face the team of Tülin Karatay and Lorna Fiscella. The girls traded verbal jabs after the game and quickly the situation escalated into an all-out brawl. Callisto eventually emerged victorious after crushing both Tülin and Lorna in two successive catfights. (See “Mayhem on the Beach”) At the end of her undefeated season Callisto was voted 2011’s Hottest Fighter of the Year by the fans.

Callisto’s 2012 season began with a surprise loss to the up-and-coming superstar – Belén Zenere of Argentina. After the defeat, Callisto reverted back to her old habits and spent the next few months flirting with Charlotte Cumming‘s man. A catfight erupted between Callisto and Charlotte on July 1 when the Brit found Callisto in her man’s house. While Charlotte furiously pounded the Italian seductress, Callisto still proved a better catfighter as she eventually choked out the raging blonde and left her stretched out naked in the backyard. (See “He’s My Man”) A number-one-contendership shootfighting contest was set up between Callisto and Charlotte a month later on August 5 with Callisto prevailing again in the third round. But Charlotte attacked her after the match and brutally choked her unconscious, leaving her convulsing uncontrollably in the middle of the ring. (See “The Grudge”) After hospitalization, Callisto eventually made her return on October 28 to face the IWFC champion Yulia Koroleva of Russia for the title. The ending was controversial when Yulia blitzkrieged an unsuspecting Callisto while she was fixing her bikini bottom which came loose. After pinning her to the mat, Yulia choked her out with hand straps, thus retraining her championship. (See “The Russian Blitz”)

Disheartened after coming so close to winning the championship, Callisto came back in 2013 with the intention to climb back up the ladder to the top. But her attempt was met with mixed success. On July 28, Callisto was pitted in a crucial shootfight against Sweden’s Freja Jörgensen who had just returned to the IWFC after suffering a neck injury in 2012. While she took control for most of the match, Callisto eventually fell prey to Freja’s figure-four neck-scissor which quickly rendered the cocky Italian unconscious in the middle of the ring. (See “Tears of Pain”)

In 2014, a win against the Australian blonde Stephanie Rose gave Callisto another golden opportunity at the IWFC title. She was scheduled to face Sonia Gilliéron of Switzerland in a number-one-contendership match on June 1. It was a vicious shootfight with both women giving all they got, but in the end Callisto succumbs again to a ruthless choke by hand wraps that almost rendered her unconscious, reminiscent of her loss in the championship fight at the end of 2012. (See “A Long Time Coming”) With that heart-wrenching defeat, frustration began to take its toll on the Callisto and the veteran Italian couldn’t regain her previous form again.
