    I think these things have to happen organically. That typically happens in sport when someone from whatever affiliation becomes good at it and generates fan appeal.

    Women's MMA came into the spotlight with Gina Carani and Ronda Rousey. More female fans resulted.

    You've seen that to some extent at times with women's boxing as well.

    ​​​​​​Other than some sop****ric jokes, I don't recall too much issue with Orlando Cruz; I imagine if someone who was open as a member of the lesbian/gay/bi***ual community fought at a high level, it would generate more fan following from those of that community....

    It's a shame they didnt capitalise on this fight to promote LGBT inclusion in boxing

    Orlando Cruz actually got a lot of pink support from the LGBT community when he fought for a world title vs Flanagan

    But if you're really for social justice. Maybe you can petition one of your local promoters to put up a ring cqrd boy.

    Just make sure its in your town and it's not televised.
    We think it'll have more success with the television networks and major promoters. They're always wanting to do anything for the image of inclusion, as many corporations do.

    There's a petition coming, targeting ESPN firstly.

    There actually was a ring boy on the AJ v Gary Cornish event but we want to make it a mainstay. He was fab!!

    Not sure the boxers will go for that! Plus the LGBT community want to remove the stigma of perversion, I don't think willy size on the tale of the tape would really help.

    then again, weigh ins kind of prove there's a lot of at least bi curious boxing fans. A load of men watching men in their underwear and talking about whose body looks best and who will dominate who come on.

    I think a few ring guys in little shorts is a great idea, it inclusive and also eradicates the argument of ***ism in regards to ring girls.

    Any other idea guys? We're trying to bring the sport into the modern era.
