In a clash of female ring legends, Mia St. John (46-11-2, 18 KOs) pounded out a ten round unanimous decision over Coal Miner’s Daughter Christy Martin (49-7-3, 31 KOs) on Tuesday night at the Table Mountain Casino on Friant, California. Mia, 45, was more than willing to brawl with Christy, 44, beating her to the punch and landing most the clean shots. Scores were 96-94, 96-94, 97-93. St. John claimed the vacant WBC female super welterweight title with the win. After the fight, both ladies announced their retirement.

Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
