    Women should wear skirts to box

    according to the AIBA

    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?

    The online petition is here, thanks to a friend for this note.

    There was something on the news just the other day that the tennis bigwigs are going to try to get the women players not to grunt or yell when making shots. Not "ladylike," I guess.

    I am all for it if they'll allow the Scottish men's team to compete in kilts.

    Judoka can also follow, since the no leg grabbing rules.

    No grabbing bellow the skirt.

    If someone thinks forcing skirts on female boxers is going to sell more tickets they'll only end up confused and disappointed and the move will most likely end up hurting women's boxing in the long run.

    Serious dick move from whatever body this is being passed down from.

    They probably think if it worked for volleyball it can work for boxing.
