The World Boxing Council (WBC) has announced a new category for transgender boxers that it says it created to insure the “safety” of competitors.

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman told The Telegraph on Thursday that the new rules will go into effect in 2023 and are meant to make sure female boxers are safe.

Sulaiman added that WBC intended to make sure that “the dangers of a man fighting a woman will never happen.”

“We will not allow — ever — a transgender born a man to fight a woman, who was born a woman,” he added.

The WBC has added birth gender rules that maintain that males can only fight other males and men who claim to have “transitioned” to being women can only fight other transgender women. The same will be true for female boxers who claim to be transgender males.

“It is the time to do this, and we are doing this because of safety and inclusion,” Sulaiman insisted.

“There should be no grey area around this, and we want to go into it with transparency and the correct decisions,” he said opposing the idea that transgender “women” should be allowed to fight natural-born women women.

“Woman to man or man to woman transgender change will never be allowed to fight a different gender by birth,” he explained.

Still, Sulaiman also said that transgender people “fully deserve” to join the sport of boxing if they want to do so.

One of the best examples of how dangerous free-for-all fighting is seen in the case of MMA fighter Fallon Fox, who was born a man, who has fractured the skulls of two natural-born female opponents in the ring because he so over powered them when he became a “female” fighter.
