Women will get to box in the 2012 Olympics....BUT...

They might be wearing skirts

"Women will get a chance to box in the Olympics for the first time in 2012. If the Amateur International Boxing Association has anything to say about it, they will be wearing skirts.
That's right, skirts. The AIBA has introduced a trial alternate uniform, asking female boxers to wear skirts because it will make the women easier to distinguish from the men, as if the completely different bodies wasn't enough. Poland adopted the uniform, calling the uniforms more "elegant" and "womanly."

Really???? I mean...really? Tennis pulls it off well but come on boxing?

Thats why the Olympics are so outdated. Time to start a new sport showcase with the sports that are relevant.

Exactly bro. Why in the hell would they want to punt them in skirts??? It blows my mind!!
I don't believe the Olympics are out dated.....just some of the sports inside.

That sounds typical when old lusty men decide over the rules of a sport. Look at beach volleyball. Men are allowed to wear a shirt and shorts, women have to wear a bikini which isn't allowed to cover more than a certain percentage of their skin.

I have 12 amateur Boxing fights to my name and I have NEVER had to wear a damn skirt, if this is their way of trying to "sex-up boxing" then it's pathetic. Women have never had to wear skirts in boxing fights, why all of a sudden make it a rule now? It's not like they've just allowed women to fight for the very first time and for that privelege this is a condition they MUST adhere to...

...total BULLSH*T!!!!

Miesha was wearing a skirt against Rousey and it sure looked weird imo.
