    Default Should transgenered people be allowed to box?

    Patricio Manuel, a super featherweight fighting out of Los Angeles won a unanimous decision in December at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in what was billed as the first pro bout in the U.S. involving a transgender man.

    so that’s someone born a woman who turned and fought as a man? I guess if that’s what they want to do, fine, just match them light. If it’s the other way around, hell no, would be my stance. As with everything involving the issue though, it’s more of a talking point and source of faux outrage than it is anything which will ever have much to do with anything. A tomato can who has been knocked out 18 times in the last three years shouldn’t be allowed to fight a standout prospect, but that’s just boxing.

    So the question is should one person be allowed to do the same things as another person. ....Yes

    "Women of boxing discuss competing with transgender females"

    Here's the opinion of some of those who actually have to step into the ring with transgender females. Some bravely go with the flow and don't seem to mind... but others emphatically say "no".

    I agree with the latter.

    In short, a woman changes into a man and wants to fight men? It's her choice.

    A man changes into a woman and wants to fight women? He's being forced onto opponents who want no part of it.

    'Nough said.
