Christy Martin is a boxing legend, the first female in her sport to cover Sports Illustrated. But now this brawler is truly in for the fight of her life...
... against both death and her husband.
Martin, who once appeared on the undercard of a Mike Tyson match, is recovering in a Florida hospital after being shot and stabbed yesterday.
While details are still coming in, TMZ reports the boxer stumbled out of her home after the incident, flagged down a car and was taken to get care by a passing motorist. Despite her injuries, Martin told authorities the man behind the attack was her 66-year-old husband and trainer, James Martin.
Police are now on the hunt for the man who made the mistake of thinking Christy Martin could be knocked out so easily.
