We are less than a month out until the rematch a decade in the making is set to take place at the Table Mountain Casino in Friant, CA August 14.
Christy Martin (157) and Mia St. John (145) did a 30 day pre-fight weigh-in and press conference to help promote their fight this past weekend. It was announced the bout will now be for the vacant WBC Super Welterweight World Title (150 lbs.).
“I’ve waited nearly 10 years for this rematch,” stated St John. “I know I out-boxed Christy in the last fight, but this time I am going to BEAT her. Now we’ll see who the real WBC Champion is, La Gallina or La Guerrera.”
“I am excited about this opportunity to get my 50th win against Mia St John to finish my career,” said Martin. “I am honored to fight for the WBC World Title at Table Mountain Casino and look forward to becoming a World Champion once again. This time I will KO Mia, that’s as good a guarantee as you get.”
The event will be held in the Events Center at Table Mountain Casino in Friant, California, which is located just 15 miles outside Fresno. Tickets for this night of championship boxing will be priced at $70 VIP, $65 Gold, $60 Reserved, and $55 General Admission, and can be purchased at www.tmcasino.com or at Table Mountain Casino.
