Setting the Record Straight
by Mia St. John
June 25, 2006


(JUNE 25) I would like to set the record straight on a few issues. First, I want to express my disappointment in the Edmonton Sun for printing post fight quotes from me when I did not even interview with them after the fight. And although I am quite use to the critics by now, their one sided view of the fight was terribly disappointing as well. I was never hurt once during the fight which is probably why I left the ring as I
entered, without a mark on my face. I was the bigger, stronger fighter so I chose to fight toe to toe all ten rounds. Conditioning and endurance is never an issue with me. Jelena was not surprisingly the faster one.  I felt the fight was closer than actually scored, but that's okay I'm sure there have been plenty of fights of mine that weren't scored so
accurately either! What comes around goes around..

I want to thank the entire promotion. They were professional and treated me with the upmost respect. I have so much respect for Jelena and her team. They made me feel welcome and showed me nothing but kindness and professionalism. I believe Jelena will be a success in any
field she enters in life.

As for me and retiring, I will continue to fight the remainder of '06 and I am still undecided about '07. And as for me "passing on the torch", that is not even possible. Every fight no matter what the outcome, I walk into the ring Mia St. John and I leave the ring Mia St. John. Nothing can or ever will be taken from me.I know who I am and what I have done for this sport. I fight for me, not the judges, not the fans, and certainly not for some 10 cent belt I have never even heard of. And I can assure you I do not need a judge to tell me how I did in a fight. What matters to me is if I leave the ring
happy and confident with my performance.  Validation and happiness can only come from within myself.

It's no secret that I do not like promoters and I have become very jaded in my career. I have been with the biggest promoters in the world i.e., Don King, Bob Arum, Dan Goossen, etc.. and have fought on some of the biggest cards and venues. I have seen it all and I have seen things
in my career I wish I didn't, things that make my stomach turn. However, I will save all this for my upcoming book. My loyalty lies with my fellow fighter not the promoter. I say this because, when I step into that ring there is only one other person in that arena that knows what I am feeling, and that's the person standing across from me.

I realize that my opponents over the years may have experienced many injustices when fighting me. When I knew about it my mom and I always tried to right the wrongs. Sometimes I didn't know and sometimes it was beyond my control, for that I am truly sorry.

When I enter the ring I always say two prayers, one for myself and one for my opponent. I wish all the women in the sport nothing but the best.
