#GAReads | Christy Martin Women's Fighter of the Year award created
The Boxing Writers Association of America has named a fighter of the year as part of its annual awards for decades. It will continue to carry on that tradition, and the organization has announced that it will begin giving out a women's fighter of the year award as well.
It will be named the Christy Martin Women's Fighter of the Year in honor of the trailblazing fighter. It will be presented for the first time at the 2018 awards banquet, which will take place at a location and on a date to be determined in the spring.
