Thanks to Implants, Boxing Career Goes Bust - February 18th 2009, 11:54 PM

http://www.newser.com/story/51146/th...goes-bust.html

Quote:
(Newser) – A British model and recreational boxer has been barred from competition because she has breast implants, ABC News reports. The Amateur Boxing Association of England cited possible health risks, but Sarah Blewden says she should be able to use a breast protector, similar to groin cups for men. “If I had great, ginormous, double-F breasts it would be different,” she says.
Blewden denied that the beef was a publicity stunt. “It's about boxing,” she said. In fact, the boxer said she hopes her plight will push development of an acceptable breast protector. The association said it regrets the hoopla. “It's really just bad timing when we are pushing for equality,” an official said, “but we also want to make sure that people are safe.”
Should she have been banned because of her implants? I'm unsure on this, they could cause issues but...

A breast protector would be interesting.

I can see where they would be worried about a health risk, I mean one good hit to the boob and the implant could bust, and that's super dangerous, but if a breast "cup" could be created that could protect the implants then it shoulnt be a problem.

Well, no breast cup, no implants allowed. Seems fair enough, although I'm not sure if she did the implants just to rally support or for some other reason.
