When did Ring-Card Girls first appear?
They're a routine feature of every promotion, but how long have ring-card girls been part of the pro-boxing scene? I'm guessing that feminist groups opposed their introduction.

At fights in the 30's and 40's young boys would carry the cards showing the round number. Ring card girls probably didn't become relevant till the 70's. I can't think of a single fight where I saw one from the 60' on down.
