“Girls should stick together”


Boxing champions Ebanie Bridges and Amanda Serrano were among those who criticized USA Boxing for its policies regarding transgender fighters and their participation against women.

USA Boxing says that a fighter who transitioned from male to female can compete in the women’s division under several conditions detailed in the rule book:

The boxer identifies as female and underwent gender reassignment surgery. The wrestler has undergone quarterly hormone testing and provides the organization with documentation of hormone levels for a minimum of four years. The fighter’s testosterone levels have been below 5 nanomoles per liter 48 months prior to his first fight, the fighter’s total testosterone level must remain below 5 nmol/L during his eligibility to compete against women and the conditions will be monitored and tested at the fighter’s expense with a 12-month suspension for failure to comply with the rules.

“This is wrong on so many levels,” the former IBF bantamweight champion wrote on but it’s a little different to have our skulls broken in combat sports where the goal is to HURT YOU, not just break a record… however, I think it’s wrong in ALL SPORTS… I have nothing against trans people, but I can’t slant the line in sport… You don’t see references or debates about trans men in sport… because it’s not a threat…

“It’s not just about test levels, your bone density, and a bunch of other biological factors. Cutting off bits and adding breasts won’t recapture the masculine maturity your body went through before you decided you’re now a woman.” “

Bridges said the solution was to have a transgender division in the sport.

“I don’t care about ‘political correctness’, it’s politically incorrect for a man to fight a woman… and idc, that’s exactly what it is… this society is too soft… this is our health and safety. “Girls must stand together or women’s sport in 50 years will be full of male champions,” she added.

Serrano, who is the unified featherweight champion, intervened.

“Make sense! Women who were born female can’t compete against women under the same rules as men according to the WBC… BUT men can identify as women, transition, and then fight us women?” Serrano wrote in X.
