Boxer Assigned Male at Birth Fractures Opponent’s Skull in Sanctioned Bout

A harsh ban, but safety first.

In a shocking display of sanctioned violence, Errol Spence Jr. soundly defeated his opponent Yordenis Ugas by tenth round TKO caused by Spence Jr. fracturing Ugas’ orbital bone. The injury, which sounds significantly more scary when we refer to it as a “broken skull,” a biologically accurate term which seemingly sets it apart from the many other fractured orbitals which have occurred in combat sports history, led to significant swelling, obscuring Ugas’ vision and calling for a halt to the bout. Fans of pugilist sports, long on the record as believing the ability to fracture an opponent’s skull demonstrates a clear and unfair size and strength hazard, have called for a full ban in the participation of any men in boxing, mixed martial arts or similar sports unless they were assigned female at birth.
