[QUOTE=Clyde Barrow;9916669]Martin and Laila are the only female boxers I ever bothered trying to watch. Glad Martin is feeling alright after getting attacked by her guy, but coming back to boxing probably isn't going to go to well for her…

Mayweather was considering Christy Martin for his next fight but there was one problem...he only beats on women who don't box for a living.

Insert your favorite Victor Ortiz vs Christy Martin joke... Yes I was being sarcastic. We're all tired of BS Top Rank cards.
