World Boxing Council shortens women’s bouts because of periods
  • WBC decides women should fight for only 10 two-minute rounds
  • Professional fights usually last for 12, three-minute rounds
  • 'Menstrual cycle has tremendous impact on the body of a woman' it says

It's always been up to ten, two minute rounds in women's boxing....this writer probably had nothing to write about and figured since most people don't pay attention to women's boxing, he'd write this as if it was news.

I don't condone women getting in the ring for obvious reasons. It has to do more with physicality. I like my women feminine, smelling and looking good.
