It’s a rematch 9 years in the making.

Mia St. John (46-11-2) is trying to avenge her loss to Christy Martin (49-6-3). St. John talked to Top Rank Boxing Wednesday to hopefully book the match for Dec. 5 in Madison Square Garden – the 9th anniversary of their first match. The bout could be apart of the undercard of the rematch between Antonio Margarito and Miguel Cotto.

Martin won a unanimous decision over St. John on Dec. 6, 2002 at the Pontiac Silverdome. St. John called out Martin before Martin’s match with Dakota Stone this past June. (Martin would lose the match due to an injured hand.)

St. John is hoping to make the match official in the coming weeks, as her management is talking to Martin’s manger and Top Rank.
