Yes, although whether it will go ahead is another matter. Besides, it's a pure gimmick. You can bet whatever money you like she would win the fight, as the guy chosen as the opponent will be a corpse. Perhaps they should stick her in with Tyson; he might even win a fight for once :lol

ABC condemns Wolfe fight!

June 17, 2005

Tim Lueckenhoff, President of the Association of Boxing Commissions, has asked the Mississippi Athletic Commission to withdraw approval of the announced Anne Wolfe versus a male TBA fight slated for August 20 at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi.. Below is the letter Lueckenhoff sent to Mississippi Athletic Commissioner Jon Lewis:

Mr. Jon Lewis
Mississippi Athletic Commission

Re: Female Boxer v. Male

Dear Mr. Lewis:

It has come to the attention of the Association of Boxing Commissions that the Mississippi Athletic Commission has approved a professional boxing contest between Ann Wolfe and a "TBA" male boxer which currently is scheduled to be held on August 20, 2005 at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi.

Please be advised that the Association of Boxing Commissions, of which the Mississippi Athletic Commission is a member, staunchly abhors the sanctioning of a professional boxing contest between a male boxer and a female boxer; and the ABC vehemently recommends that the Mississippi Athletic Commission withdraw its approval of such a bout.

A boxing contest between a male and a female raises inherent safety concerns, as the potential for serious injury in such a boxing contest is far greater than in a male v. male or female v. female boxing contest. Such concerns are premised upon the significant differences in strength, speed and ability to take a punch. Moreover, the bones in a female are thinner and have less calcium, especially the skull and nose; and a female's brain is not as well equipped as a male's to endure the same force of a punch to the head.

Many state and tribal boxing commissions which are members of the Association of Boxing Commissions have promulgated regulations expressly prohibiting a male v. female professional boxing contest. Presuming the absence of such a regulation in Mississippi, in the interests of the health and safety of the boxers, as well as in the interests of integrity and fairness in the sport of professional boxing, the Association of Boxing Commissions trusts that the Mississippi Athletic Commission will act in accordance with this letter.

I have been authorized to state that the American Association of Professional Ringside Physicians has expressed similar concerns regarding the safety and the protection of female boxers if authorized to fight a male boxer.

Very truly yours,
Tim Lueckenhoff
President
