Trans Vs. Trans Category Added By WBC, But No Boy Vs. Girl Fights

  • The World Boxing Council (WBC) announced it will introduce a new category for transgender fighters.
  • The WBC will issue a “global call” for trans athletes to come forward if they want to compete, with the aim of setting up their own separate league or tournament.
  • Trans athletes will not be allowed to compete against non-trans fighters.
  • The sport would look to adopt the “at birth” rule, meaning a trans fighter born a man would only be able to compete against a fellow trans fighter born a man.
