Sportscaster Bob Costas expressed concern about the decision of boxing federations to allow transgender women to compete against biological women, particularly in the context of Olympic boxing.

He emphasized the need for common sense in such decisions, highlighting the differences in physical attributes between male and female athletes.

“I understand that, when it comes to Olympic boxing, that federation will allow trans women to compete against biological women — at birth biological women. That seems crazy. And you don’t want to be called — it’s not transphobic to say, let’s inject some common sense here,” Costas said.

“A lot of this is murky, and we don’t want — we know that some people who use this as an issue actually are hostile toward trans people or people who, after a carefully-considered decision at a certain point in life, decide that they’ll be happier and closer to their true selves.”

Costas also pointed out the importance of establishing clear rules in this regard.

“I think any sensitive person is aligned with that. But Sugar Ray Leonard didn’t fight Mike Tyson, they were contemporaries. Sugar Ray was a welterweight, Mike was a heavyweight. If someday, the best player in the WNBA can play in the NBA, everybody would applaud. But if the worst guy at the end of the bench on the worst team in the NBA went to the WNBA and averaged 40 points a game, everybody knows that’s bullshit,” he said.

Caitlin Flanagan from The Atlantic highlighted the fundamental differences between sexes as the reason for sex divisions in sports, a point with which Costas concurred.
