HBO’s Real Sports to Profile Transgender Fighter Fallon Fox Tomorrow Night
Posted by Larry Csonka on 04.21.2014



- Tomorrow night at 10PMET, HBO's Real Sports will profile transgender MMA fighter Fallon Fox. Here is the description of the episode and the video preview…

Boyd Burton was born into a conservative religious family in Toledo, Ohio, in 1975. Nearly 30 years later, after extended struggles with sexual identity issues, he underwent gender-reassignment surgery, and assumed the name Fallon Fox. Since turning pro in mixed martial arts 2012 and being outed by a reporter in 2013, Fox, 38, is now the most prominent transgender athlete in professional sports and a reluctant trailblazer for the transgender community. The reaction from the MMA community has largely been hostile, with many fans and fighters opposing her participation in the women's divisions because they believe her male attributes provide an unfair advantage. Despite the scrutiny, Fox continues to fight. In this REAL SPORTS/Sports Illustrated segment, correspondent Mary Carillo goes one-on-one with Fox to learn about her struggles for acceptance and legitimacy in a sport where many still view her as a man.
