    Transgender F2M boxer wins pro debut

    I wonder if he still punches like a girl. His opponent was winless in 5 previous fights. Herm may have been set up with a tomato can.

    Transgender boxer Patricio Manuel made history Saturday with a unanimous decision victory over Mexican super-featherweight Hugo Aguilar in Indio, California.Manuel, 33, became the first transgender male to fight professionally in the United States.
    "I wouldn´t trade any of it. It was worth everything I went through to get to this point," Manuel said, according to the Los Angeles Times. "I´m a professional boxer now."
    Manuel fought in the 2012 US Olympic trials as a female, but a shoulder injury spelled the end of a bid to make the team for the London Games after just one bout.
    Months later he began the transition to male, and after surgery and hormone treatments waded through the bureaucracy of getting licensed to fight.

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.

    My question is this:

    Wouldn't hormone treatments be considered a performance enhancing drug, and therefore illegal?

    That is a very good question!

    And what heartwarming story wouldn't be complete without a Gofundme page? Why? Because transgender boxers need money too.
