'We're living in crazy times': Former professional female boxer slams USA Boxing's transgender policy | Blaze Media


A female who formerly competed in professional boxing has come out against the sport’s governing bodies allowing biological males to compete against women, according to Fox News Digital.

Cary Williams claimed that allowing biological males to compete against women could result in serious injuries and certain opportunities could be taken away from female boxers.

When I heard that they were allowing transgender people to box women, I could not believe it,” Williams said.

“I know it’s been going on in a lot of sports, which is not right on any level. But when you’re talking about people punching each other in the face, in the body, in the head, I really was surprised.”

USA Boxing was slammed for its recent transgender policy, which allows biological males to fight women so long as they adhere to certain parameters involving levels of testosterone and completion of gender surgery.

The parameters are as follows:

The athlete has declared that her gender identity is female and has completed gender reassignment surgery.

The athlete for a minimum of four years after surgery has had quarterly hormone testing and presents USA Boxing documentation of hormone levels.

The athlete must demonstrate that her total testosterone level in serum has been below 5 nmol/L for at least 48 months prior to her first competition (with the requirement for any longer period to be based on a confidential case-by-case evaluation, considering whether or not 48 months is a sufficient length of time to minimize any advantage in women’s competition).

The athlete’s total testosterone level in serum must remain below 5 nmol/L throughout the period of desired eligibility to compete in the female category.

Compliance with these conditions will be monitored by testing at the expense of the athlete. In the event of non-compliance, the athlete’s eligibility for female competition will be suspended for 12 months. Re-testing for testosterone levels will then be required.

Williams has expressed fears that women could be seriously injured if the new rule is allowed to continue. She shared a story from when she was 30 years old and preparing for a competition. She sparred with a 16-year-old boy and immediately discovered the differences between men and women in the ring.

“I was preparing for a fight, and, at the time, there were a lot of teenage boys on the boxing team at the gym. So, I sparred with a lot of teenage boys, and there weren’t as many women boxing in the sport around that time. So, I was sparring with a 16-year-old boy, and you know they all still went light on me,” Williams explained.

“Even though they were boys, they still went light on me, and he just threw, he flicked in a body shot and fractured one of my ribs. It was hairline but hurt like hell, and he didn’t mean to do it. I just thought, wow, like the power behind a teenage boy.”

“I couldn’t imagine, you know, being hit by a grown man. So, yeah, that experience, it takes me to this whole other level of thought, you know, thinking if they’re really going to allow men to go in there and box with women. That is just deadly.”

Williams went on to say that she never thought sports would be allowing men to compete against women, adding that “[w]e’re living in crazy times right now.”

“There’s just no way that a man should be able to come into a boxing ring and box with a woman,” Williams said. “No matter what, if they’re born a man, then they’re a man. Doesn’t matter if they have gone through transition.”

“I think most of the people that I have communicated with feel the same way. But a lot are worried to speak out. You know, we live in a weird cancel culture, and so I think a lot of people don’t want to voice their opinions on it, which is really sad because we need more people to stand up on this.”
