This isn't good. 42-year old Christy Martin who gained notoriety for being the first successful woman's boxer back in the early 1990's is in a hospital after an apparently nasty incident involving her husband.

Police say that Jim Martin was shot and stabbed by Jim Martin in their Apopka, Florida home. She apparently managed to get out of the house and flag down a passing motorist who called 9-1-1.

Police apparently are still looking for Jim Martin and say that they were called to the couple's home twice on Tuesday.

Christy had not given up the fight game, her last fight was a little over a year ago. The couple ran a boxing gym in the Apopka area.
