Bearded Boxers have to be banned from taking part in boxing competitions because they find it difficult to scratch an itchy face if their hand is in a boxing glove.
The Amateur Boxing Association of England recently ruled that all fighters had to be clean shaven to allow cuts to the face to be seen but this has upset Muslim And Sikh Fighters who are seeking to overturn the decision claiming that this is discrimination against them.
Other rules have now come in also banning moustaches very thick eyebrows high barnetts including bee hive style hair styles and the Afro hairstyle in which the hair is shaped in a gigantic frizzy mass. Also no turbans or large chef hats can be worn in any boxing match.
The new rules are truly hair raising.
