Cynthia Calvillo against Pearl Gonzalez was scheduled to take place on thein Buffalo, New York, on Saturday. Instead, the fight won’t happen because Gonzalez has breast implants.
That’s right, a fight that has been scheduled for over a month was canceled just after both fighters weighed in because the New York State Athletic Commission prohibits female fighters from competing with breast implants.
From the NYSAC rulebook: “Due to the concern over rupture, boxers who have breast implants are not eligible to box in New York. Women who have had breast reduction surgery are, however, eligible to compete.”
