Female boxer's home burglarized

BY foxsports • November 26, 2010

Deputies say someone burglarized the Florida home of boxer Christy Martin while she was in the hospital with gunshot and stab wounds.

Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jim Solomons says a friend contacted authorities after going to the Apopka-area home to pick up some belongings for Martin. It's not clear if anything was stolen.

Christy Martin was a pioneer in women's boxing in the 1990s, once landing on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

The 42-year-old boxer was shot and stabbed at home Tuesday and taken to a hospital after flagging down a motorist for help.

Martin told deputies that her husband attacked her. Deputies are still searching for 66-year-old James Martin.
