Boxing: A primordial fight for Mary Spencer


Canadian boxer Mary Spencer will fight Mexican Cynthia Lozano for the WBA International and WBC Silver titles at 154 lbs at the Eye of the Tiger Management (EOTTM) gala scheduled for September 9 at the Cabaret du Casino de Montréal.

Ranked first in the world by the International Boxing Federation (IBF) after six professional fights, Spencer (6-0-0, 4 K. -O.) will try to consolidate its place among the best boxers in its category. Her 10-round duel against Lozano (9-1-0, 7 K.-O.) which will also be broadcast live on TVA Sports could thus send another message to Quebecer Marie-Ève ​​Dicaire, IBF champion.

Also, the maple leaf athlete's next rival is not to be taken lightly, even though she lost by knockout. in the seventh assault against Dicaire in December 2021. An unconventional style allowed him to rise to the ninth echelon of the IBF.

“When I started my professional career, I did not imagine being ranked number 1 contender or fighting for titles so quickly, and I'm very happy about that. Women's boxing is booming right now and it's up to all of us to grow it by taking on the toughest challenges and putting on the fights fans want to see. This is where we are heading with this fight towards Lozano, who is the last opponent of Dicaire,” Spencer said in a statement from EOTTM.

In addition to the Spencer-Lozano clash, the gala will feature Christian Mbilli, who will take on American DeAndre Ware for the WBC Continental Americas and WBA International super middleweight belts.
