Until quite recently female boxing was not considered an official sport and amateur matches were being fought in small unknown locations between a limited number มวยสากล of boxing enthusiasts. In fact it wasn’t until the 1970’s that women were even allowed to be legally included in a fight and as late as 1998 that the first fully sanctioned ladies tournaments really started to become popular events. Due to this lack of initial organization a specific boxing uniform was never developed and still to this day nobody has decided on a standard ladies boxing costume. If you watch a women’s boxing tournament on the television, you may notice that some fighters choose to wear boxing shorts and sleeveless shirts, while others sport tight trunks and tank tops. So what is the correct attire for female amateur and professional boxers?
The truth is there is no exact uniform for female boxers nor is there a rule regarding specific guidelines for what apparel a lady must wear during training or a fight. Although, in 2010 there was some controversy over the International Boxing Associations decision to include a new rule that all female boxers must wear mini-skirts. This was immediately dropped as a massive 36 out of 40 professional and amateur fighters were completely against this rule, mainly on the grounds that it was sexist, but also because mini-skirts limit movements. Unfortunately, this same ‘Mini-skirt rule’ is back as there are rumors that girls must wear them as the standard uniform for the Olympic Games first ever female boxing tournaments.
