After watching the heroics of Nicola Adams capturing Olympic
gold at London 2012, attention this week turned to professional
side of the woman's boxing.
And in a clash between ring legends, Mia St. John scored a
unanimous decision over Christy Martin at the Table Mountain Casino
in Friant, California.
45-year-old Mia, a former Playboy model, was willing to take the
fight to Christy and landed several weighty blows.
In the end the judges handed out a 97-93 and 96-44 (twice)
The win gave St. John the vacant WBC female super-welterweight
title. However, she won't be defending it as both fighters
immediately announced their retirements after the fight.
