Female Boxer Drops Hands, Takes 11 Straight Punches to the Face

That's an interesting strategy.

In a fight between boxers Christy Martin and Mia St. John, Martin at one point dropped her hands and stuck her tongue out, apparently wanting to show how strong her chin was by taking 11 straight punches to the face.

The fact that St. John seemed relieved when she heard the announcement of her unanimous-decision win was a bit surprising, but maybe the rest of the fight wasn't as one-sided as the last bit there.
