She beat Slovenia's Franka Anic, 8-3.

Mcpherson also knocked out British world champion Sarah Stevenson in the first round.

"I'm just so happy to be here, to be part of this huge experience. My first fight I was nervous, but at the same time I just let it all go. If I lost I lost. If I won I won," said McPherson.
