The WBC will not participate in any female bout scheduled for 12 rounds x 3 minutes

(OCT 15) The WBC finished an unprecedented First World Female Convention only 3 weeks ago in which many topics were addressed.
A key issue was the dispute between 10 rounds vs. 12 rounds and two-minute rounds vs. three-minutes rounds in female boxing.

It was unanimously decided that several detailed medical studies will be conducted as an addition to the many previously performed before, considering permitting any female boxing match to be held for more than 10 rounds and any round to be considered for more than 2 minutes.

The WBC Female Program will not participate or sanction any fight schedule for more than 10 rounds or any bout with rounds lasting more than 2 minutes.

Several facts were reported during the convention which are of total concern regarding any changes of the 10 x 2 female boxing matches :
-Women are physically inclined to have concussions , much more than men.

-A female fighter used to fight 10 x 2 which is 20 minutes, would need tremendous effort to adjust to 12 x 3 which is 36 minutes.

-Menstrual cycle has tremendous impact on the body of a woman, including 12 hormones which act in the body system, creating radical changes in several areas.

-Women's endurance has been proven to be less than men. Marathon running time is much different between male and female.

Any promoter staging a fight for 12 x 3 will be creating a tremendous risk factor, which can lead to severe injuries. The WBC absolutely refuses this to take place and will continue to work with proper medical data to prove this to be a wrong decision.

This is not discrimination or equality. Rather it is based upon established medical and safety facts.
