MEXICO CITY, Mexico (LifeSiteNews) — The World Boxing Council (WBC) will create a special category for gender-confused boxers this year.
However, those competitions will be restricted by the athlete’s actual sex, effectively creating another competition category for men, limited to those who struggle with gender confusion, and for women who struggle with gender confusion.
“We are going to put out a global call for those who are interested in 2023 and we will set up the protocols, start consultation and most likely create a league and a tournament,” President Mauricio Sulaiman told The Telegraph. “It is the time to do this, and we are doing this because of safety and inclusion. We have been the leaders in rules for women’s boxing – so the dangers of a man fighting a woman will never happen because of what we are going to put in place.”
Dear champion. All to the contrary! @WBCBoxing rejects and bans any boxing involving a born man vs a born woman. A transgender program is being developed as a form of inclusion but never man vs woman . Please read full story and not react fast without understanding https://t.co/3eBsdQhJCi
— Mauricio Sulaiman (@wbcmoro) December 29, 2022
Sulaiman reiterated in a December 29 tweet that men will never be able to compete against women. He wrote it in response to female boxer Claressa Shields tweeting at him that “[a] man, who is now identified as a woman, transgender, is allowed to fight against me?”
“@WBCBoxing rejects and bans any boxing involving a born man vs a born woman. A transgender program is being developed as a form of inclusion but never man vs woman,” Sulaiman wrote.
The announcement follows an August 2022 statement from the WBC which banned gender-confused men from competing against women.
At the same time, the WBC likely sought to placate criticism from leftist activists, by saying it “firmly and unequivocally supports transgender rights and recognizes the gender identity of an individual athlete.”

UPDATE (1/3/23): John-Henry Westen will hand-deliver this petition to the Vatican in the coming days, so please SIGN and SHARE it with as many people as possible.
America’s best loved pro-life priest, Fr. Frank Pavone, the National Director of Priests for Life as well as the President of the National Pro-Life Religious Council, has been laicized (dismissed from the priesthood) by order of Pope Francis.
SIGN: This outrageous attack on the pro-life movement by the so-called “listening Church” is a mockery of justice. Stand by Fr. Pavone ASAP!
A December 13 letter to all bishops in America, sent from the Pope’s representative in America – the Papal Nuncio Fr. Christophe Pierre – said that Fr. Pavone was laicized for “blasphemous communications on social media” and “persistent disobedience of the lawful instructions of his diocesan bishop.”
In a separate statement, the papal nuncio wrote that the Prefect of the Dicastery for the Clergy – the head of the Vatican’s department dealing with priests – said that there was “no possibility of appeal” of the decision.
DEMAND JUSTICE: Pope Francis' totalitarian regime cannot strike down faithful pro-life priests like Fr. Frank Pavone without international outrage!
The statement calls Fr. Pavone, “Mr. Pavone.”
“Since Priests for Life, Inc. is not a Catholic organization, Mr. Pavone's continuing role in it as a lay person would be entirely up to the leadership of that organization,” the statement says.
The statement notes that the decision on the matter by the Dicastery for Clergy was issued on November 9, but Fr. Pavone had not heard of the decision from the Vatican until CNA called him for comment.
SIGN AND STAND UP NOW: DEMAND THAT POPE FRANCIS IMMEDIATELY STOP HIS ATTACKS AGAINST FAITHFUL PRIESTS!
If Pope Francis and this Vatican regime can get away with expelling faithful priests like Fr. Frank Pavone, then the Catholic Church may truly be entering the darkest period of her existence!

Gender-confused men have switched to female competition and dominated
The announcement from the WBC comes after years of gender-confused men switching over to female athletic competitions and winning against women.
This includes William Thomas, a University of Pennsylvania swimmer who began calling himself “Lia” and started dominating collegiate swimming against women after lacklustre performances against men. Thomas won the Division 1 Women’s 500 Yard Freestyle in March against Olympic swimmer and University of Virginia athlete Emma Weyant. The victory by the male athlete led Governor Ron DeSantis to sign a proclamation declaring Weyant, a Florida native, the true winner.
Skateboarder Taylor Silverman has also been critical of men competing against female skaters. For example, over the summer she criticized a 29-year-old man named Richard Batres who defeated six female competitors, four of them under 17, this summer in a professional skateboarding competition.
“This does happen quite often in skateboarding. This happened to me on three separate occasions, two of which I placed second, and every time it’s been a different person,” Silverman told Fox News.
“We shouldn’t allow this type of abuse,” she said. “And we shouldn’t be sitting in silence and fear.”
