Fallen ice skating superstar Tonya Harding's boxing career has taken a blow - her planned fight with a transvestite has been scrapped.

The former ice princess, who made huge headlines in 1994 for plotting to injure rival Nancy Kerrigan, was set to fight DAISY D in a Fort Lauderdale, Florida, bar.

But the state's Boxing Commission refused to sanction the odd pairing because Daisy D isn't a registered fighter and the bout was cancelled.
