Mary Spencer was born the fourth of five children in the small town of Wiarton, Ontario on December 12, 1984. She spent most of her life in Windsor, Ontario where she attended Roseville Public School and W.F. Herman Secondary and began her athletic career. As a soccer, volleyball and all-city basketball player, it became apparent that Mary had the natural gifts of an athlete.

At age 17,  she wandered into the Windsor amateur boxing club. Her hard work and athleticism grabbed the attention of Olympic boxing coach Charlie Stewart and after five months of training, Mary had her amateur debut. A 6’ boxer from London, Ontario alias Ines Jelic was opposing a 145 pound Mary Spencer who stood at 5’11”. She didn’t remember who she was or how she got there, but 26 seconds into the first round, all 6 feet of Jelic had to be scooped off of the canvas before Mary could be awarded a TKO.

After getting a few more fights under her belt, the time came for Mary to compete at a higher level of boxing. In 2003 she stopped former Canadian Champion Jennifer McMurter in the second round to become Ontario’s 66kg (145 pound) champion and three months later in 2004 she became the Canadian National Champion after defeating Lara Cubitt 42:37 in the finals.

As the Canadian Champion, Mary began her international travel in hopes to broaden her list of competitors and increase her skill as a boxer. At the Torneo Italia and the Taiwan World Invitational Mary earned gold medals against world class fighters from 6 countries. She proved herself as a top competitor for the world championships and was named Boxing Canada’s athlete of the year.

In 2005,  Mary successfully defended her National title and as Canada’s champion she competed at the PanAmerican Championships in Buenos Aires, Argentina where she won a gold medal. Every win brought her closer to the World Championships and every win brought reputation to her name as one of the world’s finest boxers. Finally the time came. The world championships were held in Podolsk, Russia not far from Moscow. All of Mary’s training and hard work was put to the test and she came through. She defeated national champions from Turkey, India and Ukraine before the final match against reigning 2 time World Champion Irina Sinetskaya. After the third round with a score of 28:21 Mary Spencer became champion of the world beating the Russian champion in her home country and winning the titles of tournament best boxer and Boxing Canada’s athlete of the year.
In 2006 Mary became a three time national champion and two time Pan American champion.

She did not however become a two time world champion. At the world championships in New Delhi, India Mary won the bronze medal after a loss to Oleksandra Kozlov of Ukraine scored at 6:9.

Losing the world championship only gave Mary the drive to become a better boxer. In 2007 Mary became a four-time national champion and three time Pan American champion. She was also named Boxing Canada’s athlete of the year for the third time.  [Video: Spencer vs. Marichelle de Jong - 2007]

When 2008 finally came around Mary went to Ningbo, China for the World Championships as a five time national champion and best boxer of the 2008 Pan American championships where she claimed her fourth Pan American title. In China she defeated champions from England, Russia and North Korea to face U.S. champion Vanessa Nicol Jackson in the finals. After a 9:2 victory over Jackson, Mary was renamed Champion of the World and was once again named Boxing Canada’s athlete of the year.

In 2009 after an AIBA weight change, Mary competed in and won the 64kg (141 pound) Canadian Championship and winner of the Ahmet Comert Cup in Istanbul, Turkey. She is now fighting at the 75kg (165 pound) weight category to prepare for the 2012 Olympics in London, England which will premier women’s boxing at the 51, 60 and 75kg weight divisions.
