Thanks to Pascal Tréguer (he of wordhistories.net), who kindly informed me of his find:

  Evening Standard (London), Monday 22 September 1975, page 39, column 1:

Cheryl [...] is boxing’s leading female ringsider [...].
Sitting or standing Cheryl delivers a non-stop barrage of encouragement to Chris: “Give it the full monty,” she yells. “For Christ’s sake, Chrissie, get those bloody hammers going.”

His (UK?) version of newspapers.com apparently has different coverage than the Duke U. one.
