Christy Martin

I'm Never Fighting in California Again!

8/15/2011 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Christy Martin
Christy Martin vows she will never fight in California again, because the California State Athletic Commission just refused to overturn what she called a sexist decision in her last fight.

The commission met moments ago in L.A. and heard testimony about the referee's decision to stop Christy's June fight against Dakota Stone, after the fight doctor determined Christy's hand was too injured to keep fighting. Christy's lawyer, Gloria Allred, had argued the ref would never have stopped the fight if men were in the ring.

Christy Martin Hand
The commission refused to overturn the decision -- so Christy now swears ... she will NEVER fight in California ever again.

Gloria -- who called the decision an "outrage" -- isn't giving up either, claiming she will continue to explore Christy's options.

Just wondering if California would ever invite her to fight in CA again. After whining about a call, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

It's "protect yourself at ALL times." When you turn your back and walk towards a corner you have withdrawn yourself from the competition. The opponents only option would be hit her in the back of the head as she walked away, which is a foul. When she tunred her back it became an officiating issue. Ref could have given her a standing 8...(depending on the rules of the bout), or called the fight. He called the fight. I doubt Gloria understand teh rules of boxing, but sure Christy does. Shame on them both. It's a step backwards for women boxing. For Gloria's sake, we now need female refs it appears.

She's angry because her fingers are swolen and now the only way she can satisfy a woman is with her tongue. I guess she just realized that no matter how lesbian a female is, she still want something deep in her pu&&y.

This has to be a joke. Does she really think anyone cares is she boxes in CA again? People don't even follow real boxing anymore. I don't care if she never breathes again. GOOD RIDDANCE!

Who gives a crap?!?!?!?!?!?! It's WOMEN'S BOXING! As far as I'm concerned, the ref did you a favor. With that hand, you would have had you face looking like your hand if he wouldn't have stopped the fight.

I would consider her side of things right until the point where that bitch Gloria Allred entered the picture. To associate with her tells me her case smells like a bag of rotten fish. F Gloria and F her.

Refs do stop men boxing matches when one of the fighters has a broken hand, not all the time, but it is up to the ref. She turned away and walked towards her corner, if she has just continued to fight it wouldnt have been called.

They need to disbar Gloria Allred. She is a joke and I wish I would have broken my hand punching her in the face.

I'm sure the commission was not impressed with the 'sexual discrimination' accusation. Base it on the merits according to boxing guidelines. Oh, I forgot - Allbitch knows nothing about that. How many more cases will she lose for her clients before people get a clue that she's a sucky lawyer? She totally screwed over Rachel Uchitel too. (not that she didn't deserve it)

The second she turned her back and walked away from her opponent she put herself in a non competitive situation. Her opponent could not hit her, the ref did the right thing.

I think she suffered from a pain tolerance abnormality called pinplexia in which the pain created fear and she chose flight over fight.

So when should they have called the fight Gloria, when Christy's brains were coming out of her ears? Gloria Allred is a fame whore. She always has her nose in some case that could make her money. She is one of the most digusting lawyers out there. Maybe she should focus her law skills on real issues and real people who need the law on their side. I know a few thousand teachers in Wisconsin that could use a good lawyer :)
