Christy Williams, the first female World Champion in boxing was in the fight of her life in Nov. 2010. Stabbed three times and shot in the chest, her husband Jim (convicted of 2nd degree attempted murder) calmly took a shower why the fighter lay on the floor fighting for her life. Jim was convicted in April 2012, however, lawyers have filed post conviction relief in the case which has many possibilities as to Jim Martin`s future incarceration time. Christy, when she busted onto the scene in the 90`s was a ferocious boxer who became the covergirl and symbol for women fighter`s around the world. She was a superstar who won 49 fights with 31 by knockout. Fighting on national television and pay per view made Christy a rich woman, as she took a portion of the gate and payper view receipts. The pinnacle of her career came when the world champ graced the April 15, 1996 cover of Sport`s Illustrated. Many times she fought on the under card of Mike Tyson`s Main Event with many times her fight winning fight of the night against her male counterparts. Christy paved the way for women boxers today and the up and coming female MMA fighters. But the fight she was in for her life is a battle that she almost lost. Thankful for her win in that fight, Christy, at the age of 44 has made a comeback in the ring. I hope she does well. She is a champ.
Talk to Me:
1) Do you think women should be allowed to box?
2) Have you ever heard of Christy Martin, and if so what do you think of her as a fighter?
3) lastly, do you think Jim, her ex-husband should ever be released from prison after being convicted of attempted murder?
