Brit boxer April Hunter will face Canadian Mary Spencer in Montreal

“Make or break” for Mary Spencer, on June 6th, as her journey towards the summit will reach a point of no return in a clash where she will attempt to seize the WBA Gold title of the welterweights against British world contender April Hunter.

This one-time-only fight, scheduled for 10 rounds at the Cabaret du Casino de Montreal, will be presented on the undercard to Butler vs. Volny, all broadcasted on Punching Grace and ESPN+ starting at 7pm.

“It’s make or break! Hunter is an agile boxer with good movements and heavy hands. Her unorthodox style makes her a challenging opponent, and we know she’ll arrive here extremely prepared, with a very professional team led by Peter Fury who has proven himself in the past,” explained Mary Spencer’s coach, Samuel Décarie-Drolet.

Trained by Peter Fury, April Hunter (7-1), a 29-year-old athlete from Liverpool, is an almost undefeated athlete. The only blemish on her record, a loss by decision against her compatriot Kirstie Bavington, was actually avenged in her last fight last July, where she even knocked Bavington down.

Hunter fought and won on the undercard of her teammate Savannah Marshall when she clashed with Claressa Shields on the historic all-female event in October 2022.

By capturing the WBA Gold belt, a key to the top of the rankings, Hunter hopes to finally get her first chance at a world championship fight.

“Being in the top 10 for years, I’ve been waiting for this opportunity for a very long time. I can’t wait for it, but most importantly, I can’t wait to do the job, because I won’t miss my chance on June 6th,” affirmed the British athlete ranked number 1 at 154 lbs on BoxRec, April Hunter.
