Ring card girls are the fifth worst thing to happen to boxing, after organized crime, crooked promoters, the HBO team of Larry Merchant, Harold Lederman and Jim Lampley, and celebrity referees with gratuitous catch phrases (Joe Cortez, looking at you, buddy. Nobody cares if you're firm but fair. Just do your damn job and stop getting in the way. And Jay Nady... just don't. Retire. Stop refereeing fights.).
But without ring card girls, boxing is just two men giving each other degenerative brain disease.
