American Christy Martin, A pioneer in woman’s boxing in the 1990s, has allegedly been shot and stabbed by her husband while they were fighting at home.

Deputies in Florida say the 42-year-old boxer had been shot and stabbed in her torso and left leg when she ran from her marital home.

She was able to flag a car down for help and later told police that her 66-year-old husband, James Martin, had confronted her with a knife and a handgun.

Police are still searching for for husband.

Christy nicknamed the 'Coal Miners Daughter' was promoted by infamous boxing mogul Don King and has fought on the undercard of boxers Mike Tyson, Evander Holyfield and Julio Cesar Chavez.
