Katia Bissonnette: Female Boxer Withdraws From Tournament Over Transgender Rival by MrSundry: 7:45pm On Nov 23, 2023
Female boxer withdraws from Canadian tournament after being told her rival was transgender with an HOUR'S notice, leaving her fearing for her safety

Dr. Katia Bissonnette, from Saguenay, claims she was given just an hour's notice she was being matched with transgender fighter Mya Walmsley last month.

The two had been due to face off in the 2023 Provincial Golden Glove Championship in Victoriaville, Quebec.

But Bissonnette withdrew at the last second after learning the identity of her opponent, resulting in Walmsley being declared the winner by default as they could not find anyone else to take her position in the same weight class.

'Women shouldn't have to bear the physical and psychological risks brought by a man's decisions regarding his personal life and identity,' Bissonnette told Reduxx. 'There should be two categories: biological male and female.'

She also cited a study by the University of Utah which found that men can punch 163 per cent harder than women.

Studies on the strength of transgender women suggest that hormone blockers may reduce this biological advantage slightly.

According to Boxing Canada, a trans fighter's identity should not be disclosed if a transition was undertaken before puberty to prevent discrimination.

Walmsley is originally from Australia her history is not known, Bissonnette said. She claims that Walmsley's file indicates 'zero fights as a woman' in Canada.

For her part, Walmsley has criticized Bissonnette for publicly outing her rather than approaching her directly for a resolution.

'This kind of behavior puts athletes at risk of being excluded or receiving personal attacks based on hearsay,' Walmsley said in a statement.

'I am afraid that this type of accusation could eventually be used to delegitimize athletes in the women's category, and justify arbitrary and invasive regulations.'

A combat athlete with working brain cells. Good on her. Most have more ego than IQ points.

That's why no Nigerian female can Bleep with him despite their agidi. Even Tonto Dikeh don't want that smoke because one punch from Idris can reset her faculties plus the Police case will be very difficult to solve.

she made the right choice
how can a feminine woman fight a confused masculine man who's is confused about his gender.
these oyibos are weirdos.
so I can wake up one day and declare myself a woman and boom I'll start participating in women's stuff equally as women.
is that not cheating ?
nice moves dear.
trans na scam from weak men who can't compete with their fellow men.

Since we have three genders now, all sports should be split into the three category viz:

MALE TO MALE

FEMALE TO FEMALE

OTHERS TO OTHERS.

let all those women that support transgenders go and fight this man that is claiming to be a woman.

who has noticed that those women that claim to be men don't dare participate in male sports but its only the guys that claim to be women that are rushing to be in women sports
