The ring girl debate has been a hot topic in the sport in recent weeks after walk on girls in darts and formula one lost their jobs.
Ring girls have held the round numbers in boxing for God knows how many years.
It’s a tradition in the sport and most promoters in boxing have come out saying that they will not be leaving letting go of the tradition anytime soon.
The issue was even highlighted on a national television show recently in the UK.
A number of walk on girls here passionately defended their right to work:

But boxing promoters are having none of it. Neither are the ring girls themselves.
Kalle Sauerland who promotes this weekend’s Groves vs Eubank Jr world title fight has confirmed the following today in response to the debate:
