Christy Martin will go for her 50th pro win when she takes on Dakota Stone on the Sebastian Zbik vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr world title card at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 4.

"First time I have ever fought in California," said Christy. "I am going for my 50th win which is exciting. I have been on a lot of big cards with Julio Cesar Chavez and now I am on a Chavez Jr. world title card. It's amazing, when you think of it."
 
Christy, the Coal Miner's Daughter from Bluefield, West Virginia, is training with Miguel Diaz who is assisted by Richie Sandoval at the Top Rank Gym in Las Vegas.

Christy will take on Dakota Stone of Mountain View, Calif., in a super welterweight bout.  The two fought last Sept. 2 in Syracuse, N.Y.  Christy won a 10-round majority decision.

"It was a real tough fight," Christy said.
