Christy Martin,
A new sense of Purpose

(JUNE 4) There is a different Christy Martin in town. There is no fluff….this is a gritty, determined, self-confident women who is rising from the depths of a life changing experience the likes of which most of us will never see. Although Christy has always been tough…it is not about tough anymore. Christy Martin has been reborn. Having escaped the clutch of a vengeful and brutal assault that came close to taking her life, Christy Martin emerged with a powerful sense of who she is and what she does. An old school fighter with a new sense of passion and commitment to a sport she has been in love with for years. [Photo Slideshow]

In her trainer Miguel Diaz she has found wisdom, tempered with technique and skill development. With her Attorney Gloria Allred at her side, Christy has found friendship, strength and support. In her personal life she has surrounded herself with a renewed sense love and respect. If it is true that a great foundation is the key to success, then Christy holds the keys.

While at the press conference Dakota Stone told Christy that she did not win their last pugilistic meeting, and with Mia St. John shouting at her that she had not won that match up either, a confident and elegant smile emerged from Christy and she graciously extended an invitation to show them both the exit a losing fighter takes from the ring.

There is something different about Christy, she is calm, self assured and emanates a sense of peace. Having recently had the bullet that had lodged in her back removed and her wounds fully healed, including a fracture of the 5th rib on the left side, Martin cannot be dissuaded from perusing what she feels is her rightful destiny, to remain a Champion.

For Dakota Stone it is an opportunity to back up what she believes to be the truth, that she won their last encounter.

All in All for me, the most important thing is that Christy Martin has emerged from a life-threatening experience as a Champion over domestic violence, a Champion in the fight for her life and if she is successful in defending her title….well that just makes her a triple threat. Either way…no matter how it goes down, Christy will still be a Champion on many levels.
