The lady is a champ
This story has been out for a few days, but in case Girlboxing readers didn’t see it, women’s boxing pioneer Christy Martin, 42 has been tentatively set to box March 12th in Las Vegas on the Miguel Cotto-Ricardo Mayorga undercard.
As quoted on Fanhouse.com, Christy said, “The deal is done. I will finish my career being promoted by the best, Bob Arum, of Top Rank…” Christy was pronounced, “healthy” and will train in Las Vegas with Miguel Diaz. Given where she’s come from and where she is today, win, lose or draw Christy’s remarkable spirit is inspirational inside and outside the boxing world.
