Leather And Lace! Female Boxing Rivals Set For Rematch
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) —
Boxing returns to Table Mountain next month with a card they are calling "Final Victory."
The main event is one last bout for 45-year-old Mia St. John and 44-year-old Christy Martin, who is regarded as one of the top female fighters of all time. The WBC Super Welterweight Title will be on the line.
They last met nearly ten years ago when Martin, a heavy favorite, was taken ten rounds before beating St. John on a unanimous decision.
This time, St. John says she will take it out of the hands of the judges, winning by knockout.
Martin says St. John couldn't knock her out with a bat.
The fight is set for August 14th at Table Mountain.
