Sarah Blewden: Model With Breast Implants Banned from Boxing
Sarah Blewden, a 25-year-old model-turned-boxer, has been banned from fighting because of her breast implants.
Blewden bagan boxing two years ago as a way to keep fit, and discovered she had a natural talent for it. She applied to the Amateur Boxing Association (ABA) in hopes of eventually competing in the Olympics.
She was told she wasn't allowed to fight due to her breast implants.
It was ruled that Sarah's breasts were at risk of 'capsular contracture' or distortion if they were repeatedly hit. According to Blewden the ruling is "just ridiculous."
"My surgeon said they make me no more vulnerable than any other woman. They are not enormous ones - they are in proportion," said Blewden, who went from a 32B to a 32C to boost her modeling career.
