On Wednesday night, Canadian Mary Spencer has a chance at redemption and a world title when she takes on Femke Hermans in a rematch with the vacant women’s IBF light middleweight world title on the line. The event is promoted by Eye of the Tiger Management and will be held at the Casino de Montreal in Montreal, Canada and will live stream online on ESPN+ and PunchingGrace.
The co-main event features Canadian-Armenian star Erik Bazinyan putting his undefeated record on the line against American contender Ronald Ellis in a super middleweight bout.
Spencer (7-1, 5 KOs) suffered her first career defeat on December 16, 2022 when she took on Belgian former WBO champion Femke Hermans (16-4, 7 KOs).
When the 38-year-old Spencer fought Hermans it was a learning lesson, Hermans showed she was the much more experienced fighter and took the fight via unanimous decision. Since the loss, Spencer regrouped and dedicated herself to serious training and strategy to make the correct adjustments to prevail in the rematch.
Erik Bazinyan (30-0, 21 KOs) is a 28-year-old southpaw who boasts an undefeated record in the 168-pound division and he comes from Armenia but lives and trains out of Canada. On Wednesday night he will test himself against a very experienced American in Ronald Ellis (18-3-2, 12 KOs).
