Spencer Defeats Crews at the 2011 Pan American Games

(COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO.) – Middleweight Franchon Crews (Baltimore, Md.) fell to three-time World Champion Mary Spencer of Canada on Sunday night at the 2011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. The two faced off in the second to last bout of the evening at the Guadalajara Expo Arena in middleweight quarterfinal competition.

Spencer, known for her strong technique and clean punches, grabbed the early lead and didn’t let it go in their four-round contest. The opening two rounds were scored identically with Spencer holding a 4-2 lead after the first and an 8-4 edge halfway through the contest. Crews stayed aggressive through the final two rounds in the hopes of denting Spencer’s lead but she couldn’t accomplish her goal. Spencer enjoyed a 10-5 advantage with one round remaining and went on to win a 17-7 final decision to eliminate Crews, the sole remaining U.S. female boxer, from the 2011 Pan American Games.

"I didn't do what I wanted to do, but I did my best. I didn't put it all together like I trained to do,” Crews said. "I wanted to use my jab and set everything up, but I got caught up in her fight. Once I found out I was down, I was just going to go for it, just give all I had. She basically moved around and I had to hunt her, but I tried."

Despite the loss, the always entertaining Crews has enjoyed her first Pan American Games and appreciates her place in the history of women’s boxing. "I'm just going to learn from this experience. Mexico is awesome, the people are awesome and I made history. I'm going to do my best to go to London and open doors for other little girls that want to do the same thing I'm doing,” she said. "When I first started boxing, I never thought I would be here making history. I'm really happy to have had this opportunity. I'm overwhelmed with emotion."

Four American boxers will take the ring for the first time on Monday with flyweight John Franklin (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and super heavyweight Danny Kelly (Washington DC) opening the day’s action for Team USA in the afternoon session. Franklin will face Cuba’s Robeisy Ramirez while Kelly battles Colombia’s Isaias Mena.

Lightweight Toka Kahn Clary (Providence, R.I.) and light heavyweight Jeffery Spencer (Fountain Colo.) will both compete in the evening session as Kahn Clary challenges Brazil’s Robson Conceicao and Spencer battles newly crowned World Champion Julio la Cruz of Cuba.
