Should women go in wrestling and boxing

Yes because...

As a first step, professional boxing at least should be banned, as it is already in countries like Sweden, Cuba and North Korea. Even if adults wish to fight each other for sport, violence should not be encouraged by financial reward. The amateur sport is at least much better regulated, with credible governing bodies and tough rules on wearing helmets, the length of fights, the role of the referee, etc. Knock-outs are very rare and serious injuries much less common than in the professional game (although there are still deaths each year in amateur boxing).

No because...

It would be very unfair to ban professional boxing in particular. Top amateur boxers will wish to train full-time, which can only be done by turning professional. They may be forced to go to other countries without a ban, or to appear in illegal, unregulated contests on an “underground” circuit. In any case, the lighter divisions of professional boxing are similar to the amateur sport in the rarity of knock-outs and the role of scoring in deciding fights - why should they be banned? Finally, amateur boxing is not without its critics - even at the Olympics there have been many scandals over biased scoring and the way the game is regulated.
