Christy Martin vs. Mia St. John Postponed until August 14
After an emotional rollercoaster with her ex-husband convicted to trying to kill her; Christy Martin announced today that her upcoming match with Mia St. John has been postponed to Aug. 14. The match will still take place at the Table Mountain Casino in Friant, CA.In a statement issued by Martin, she elaborates futher about the postponement.
“As the trial grew closer my anxiety rose daily if not hourly as the fear for my safety mounted. Jim Martin is a monster and had always told me he would kill me or have someone else do it.”
“Due to these threats, and his previous actions, as the trial date grew closer, I knew this was a real possibility and was literally paralyzed with fear. After having endured a nearly fatal attack and not sure I would ever walk again, this was overwhelming. I felt as before, boxing would heal me but this was different.”
“I love this sport and am equally excited to return to the ring for my 50th victory, but I am mentally and physically exhausted and need to heal. Due to my love for this sport, I want to give all my fans, Roy Englebrecht, and Table Mountain Casino, the show they deserve.”
“Thank you for your support during the most difficult period of my entire life.”
Martin is looking for win #50 in her career.
Tickets for the Aug. 14th Final Victory show will go on sale Monday, May 7th at www.tmcasino.com or at Table Mountain Casino.
