KITCHENER, ONTARIO, 16 NOVEMBER 2010– Coming to the ring on Saturday, November 20 at the Hershey Centre (Mississauga)
Fighting in the lightweight division, Spence says she’s been waiting a long time to make her mark in the ring. “I've loved the sport of boxing ever since I was a kid and I always wished I could be a champion, like the ones on TV or in the movies. When the opportunity came I grabbed it with both hands and never let go!”
Spence has two Golden Gloves Championships to her name, where she was named Best Female Novice Boxer at the 2009 tournament and Best Female Open Boxer in 2010. Backed by promoter Syd Vanderpool, himself a former middleweight champion, he says Spence is like no other in the ring today. “Natasha simply demolishes her opponents. It’s like she’s tapped into some divine right to simply be the best female boxer out there.”
When asked about her upcoming match, Spence adds, “I eat, breathe and sleep boxing, and I surround myself with the right people in order to succeed. I don't have any words for her (Hume) actually. I’ll let my skills speak for me on November 20th.”
Fighting alongside Spence is another Kitchener- trained boxer, undefeated Cruiserweight, “Dangerous”
