Women should wear skirts to box

Canadian female boxer tries to KO skirts in ring
A Canadian boxer has her shorts in a knot about wearing a skirt in the ring.
Elizabeth Plank, an amateur boxer from Montreal, has come out swinging at a proposal that female boxers wear skirts rather than shorts when women's boxing makes its Olympic debut later this summer in London, England.
"Forcing women to wear skirts, I think, it's sexism," she told Teddy Katz of CBC Radio Sports.
Plank has received more than 52,000 signatures of support at Change.org, where she has created an online petition protesting the Amateur International Boxing Association's willingness to consider skirts in the ring.
How could the AIBA favour a skirt's elegance?
