Vintage Ring Magazines


Jeri found these old Ring Magazines while we were out today making the rounds at the local antique stores. They were dirt cheap. I couldn't pass them up. There's some good reading here. All in good shape too.

Some things never change. Apparently they had the same complaint in the 1950's as in the new millennium.

Excerpt from the November 1956 Ring Magazine editorial.....

“Smart, cagey boxers seem to have become things of the past. Fighters today rely mainly on physical strength and endurance. They make no effort to “out-think” the opposition. Barring possibly Archie Moore and Ray Robinson, there are few mittsters now who know how to combine brain with brawn.”
