According to The Sun, boxer Rob Newbiggin has decided to undergo a sex change operation. Rob Newbiggin has revealed to a number of media outlets that he was born with the physical characteristics of a man, but due to high levels of estrogen (a female hormone) in his body, his gender could not be classified as a man or woman. Rob Newbiggin says that he was born “intersexual” in the United States in 1964 and abandoned by his South American parents.
He revealed previously to wearing wigs and women dresses in his free time of the day. Rob Newbiggin is said that that after disclosing about his wish for sex change, he lost all his friends, he told about his struggle and personal experiences regarding his friends to media. Rob Newbiggin said the only person decided to standby his side is his wife Emma, he said his wife has been his rock. Once he becomes a woman he will change his name to Mercedes, and will hopefully get his (her?) license in female boxing after the sex change.
