Professional boxer Mia St. John was recently spotlighted on Maurice Benard’s “State of Mind” podcast on mental health. Digital Journal has the scoop.
St. John is a five-time world champion in boxing, where she is affectionately known as “The Knockout,” and rightfully so. She is also a published author and a mental health advocate.
She opens up to Benard about such heavy topics as losing her son, Julian, as well as her former husband, Emmy winner Kristoff St. John, and how she overcame relapse and her long-term sobriety. Being a huge boxing fan, Benard also talks to her about her journey in the professional boxing world.
Mia St. John’s book “Fighting for My Life: A Memoir about a Mother’s Loss and Grief,” which will be released in December, is available for pre-order on Amazon.
