So....sports journalism has just been shit the last few months. But this article on Christy Martin was riveting on many levels. The remarkable life (and near death) of boxer Christy Martin Anyone over 35 or so should remember the name. She had quite a run in the 90s as a bruising boxer whose fights sure has some excitement to them. Real shithead she was with. I remember some things about the attack and the court case since it was local.
