Mia St. John to be featured on "Extra"!
By Sue TL Fox

(MAY 5) Be on the lookout for Mia "The Knockout" St. John, who will be featured this Saturday, May 7th at 7p.m. Pacific Time on NBC's "EXTRA". Mia will be interviewing with guest host Mario Lopez. They will be discussing her upcoming IFBA Title fight and her DVD, "Million Dollar Workout", and much more - so tune in!  WBAN had an opportunity to go "One on One with St. John:
!

TL Fox:  So when will your DVD be out?

St. John:  The DVD is available on my website right now and will be in stores this July.

TL Fox:   Tell us what is on the DVD?

St. John:  It's an all around boxing workout with a mix of cardio and strength training.

TL Fox:  Since the movie, "Million Dollar Baby" won at the Oscars, has this had any affect on your boxing career? Are you contacted more?

St. John:  It's had a big effect on my career. An entertainment career always goes through ups and downs, one minute you're hot the next minute you're not. Now I'm on an upswing and I have to make sure I take
advantage of it because who knows how long it will last. That's the
nature of the business.

TL Fox:  Have you had any thoughts on how much longer you will be boxing?

St. John:   I think I'll box less and less in the next couple of years. I'm
already focusing on other things right now. I have a TV show in the
works so I'm definitely preparing for my exit.

TL Fox:  Where do you think you will be, when you do hang up the gloves in the future?

St. John:   I'll stay working in TV,  but I'm not sure if  I will still be
involved in the sport in any way. I want to always be remembered for
what I brought to women's boxing because I love the sport so much. On
the other hand,  I feel that the sport is extremely dangerous and not
enough is being done to protect the fighters. Until certain changes
have been made,  I don't think I want to promote the sport. I'd rather be
an advocate for women in sports and help them get ahead without being
taken advantage of.  I'd love to see ridiculous stereotypes broken about
boxers being stupid. I won't speak for the men, but as for the women, a
lot of us are very well educated. Not only are we formally educated, we
have incredible business sense and as athletes we are far more
dedicated.

TL Fox:  Can you give boxing fans a "Birds eye view" of what a day is in the life of Mia St. John? 

St. John:  I get up at 6 a.m., make breakfast, get my kids off to school, go to my office, check my interviews and meetings for the day, go running, go
weight lifting, go to interviews and meetings, get the kids, make dinner, go to the boxing gym, come home, shower, in bed by 9:30! Whew!!
I'm tired just thinking about it! (laugh)

TL Fox:  In retrospect of your boxing career, what would you tell new women boxers in the sport?

St. John: I would tell women to protect yourself at all times! In the ring
and out of the ring! Make sure you educate yourself about the business
end of boxing and more importantly educate yourself about health and
fitness. Boxing trainers tend to be very old school and don't know much
about fitness and nutrition. Read Jo Jo's articles on WBAN. She is a
great example, she has an abundance of knowledge on fitness.
