Christy Martin also known as the "The Coal Miners Daughter" is said to be “one of the most successful and prominent female boxer in the United States” and the person who “legitimized” women’s participation in the sport of boxing. She began her career fighting in “Toughwoman” contests and won three consecutive titles. Christy was the best-known female boxer in the world in the late 1990's. Christy's contract with Hall of Fame Promoter, Don King introduced millions of pay-per-view buyers to women's boxing with the sight of her bloody battles and knockouts before star studded sell-out audiences on the undercards of Mike Tyson, Felix Trinidad and Julio Cesar Chavez. At the New York State Fair in Syracuse on Sept 9, 2009 Dakota Stone fell victim to Christy's power punches. The Coal Miners Daughter won a ten round decision and the WBC World Title even though she broke her hand in the final round. The bout stole the show and gave the fans their money's worth as Christy bounced bomb after bomb off Stone's head. Today she is still recognized as the emeritus light middleweight WBC World Champion
