18 Boxing Ring Girls You Should Follow on Instagram


Photo by Tecate

Back in June of 2013, I compiled a list for Bleacher Report of some of the top boxing ring girls on Instagram.

The list, not surprisingly, was a big hit. Ring Girls continue to be a huge part of boxing–because who doesn’t love beautiful women reminding us what round it is?!

Although they don’t get much time behind the mic, many of these women have proven to be avid and knowledgeable boxing fans as well.

Fast forward to 2017 and we’re back to highlight some more of the beautiful ring girls that are rocking the ring in between rounds.

Read on for the second annual Round By Round Boxing list of Ring Girls You Should Follow on Instagram!
