THE RING Magazine wants your opinion

29
Aug

THE RING knows its readers have compelling opinions. Let’s hear ’em. And please move quickly. It’s first come, first served.

Take a minute to give us your take on anything about which you have a strong and clear opinion and it could be published in THE RING Magazine. There is a lot going on. What did you think of the Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor fight? Does McGregor have a future in boxing? Or should he go back to MMA? What are your feelings about the retirement of any of these fighters: Wladimir Klitschko, Juan Manuel Marquez, Shane Mosley and Tim Bradley? Who do you think is heir apparent to Andre Ward as the No. fighter pound-for-pound and why? You can write in about anything.

This is important: Choose only one topic (not all of the above) and let us know what you think. Also important: Make sure you’re email doesn’t exceed 200 words; closer to 100 is better. The letters that are most concise are more likely to be published. And please keep it civil.

Just email us at [email protected].

We look forward to hearing from you!

    I predict an influx of Canelo/Golden Boy themed hate mail

    • I profited 104,000 thousand dollars last year by doing an online job at my house a­n­d I did that by wor­king in my own time for few hrs /daily. I used a business model I came across online and I am amazed that i earned so much money on the side. It’s very user-friendly a­n­d I am just so happy that i discovered it. Check out what I did… http://statictab.com/r2tyhgi

  • oswaldo moreno

    a lot of GGG haters coming out the closet shooting BOMBS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • ceylon mooney

      boxingscene forum has a lotta folks whinin about golovkin. didnt know he had such a camp of haters.

      • Robert Archambault

        Look at any American based boxing forum and you will find the same. Boxingnews24 is even worse than boxingscene with the Golovkin hate.

        • TMT NYC-DA REAL GHOSTBUSTERS

          They are racists, monsieur!

          • Robert Archambault

            Keyboard bigots. None of them would have the balls to make the same posts under their real name.

          • Barley mcgrew

            No those you speak of well. Morons. Kudos.

        • Abraham E. Hernández

          Welcome back

          • Robert Archambault

            Back? Look at how old that post you are replying to is. I have not visited the RING site in many months. I’m not even visiting to reply to you as I am doing that directly though Disqus which notified me of your message. My boxing posts are only on Twitter these days and will remain there. @Barcham2015

  • Barley mcgrew

    The ‘Ring’ wants my opinion ?

    Trump is a moron.
    .

    • ceylon mooney

      barely, thats just a theory–u know, like gravity?

      • Barley mcgrew

        Lol. Indeed. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder – as they say. And from where I am coming – Trump gets less and less attractive a person by the day. Just my opinion of course. Kudos.

        • maxx

          By the hour I say lol.Kudos pal.

      • maxx

        Gravity is a fact, some of its explanations are theories.Kudos pal

        • ceylon mooney

          no but i knkw what u mean.

          gravity is a phenomenon. there are a few theories explaining gravity.

          “gravity is a theory” is a
          cliche

          near the earths surface, its measured as a vector quantify, is a force of consrant accelleration -4.8 m/s^2 acting on a mass.

          kudos

          • maxx

            It is an observable fact.Kudos.

          • ceylon mooney

            nope.

            lots of things arent facts. a person is not a fact. a website is not a fact. gravity is not a fact. its real.

            but u you could establish its effect on objects as
            fact, its existence too.

            eleventeen kudos

          • maxx

            Semantics aside, let us just agree to disagree.Kudos

          • Giuseppe

            hahaha

    • Don Trump Triumphant

      What does that have to do with boxing? Looks like you are the moron for being irrelevant.

      • Barley mcgrew

        It’s called a having a sense of humour – Mr. ‘Donald Trump Triumphant’ And tis’ that a self-upvote I see there ? – as much a stranger as Trump to humility you appear to be.

        • maxx

          It is clear this “Don Trump Triumphant” Trumpkin has no sense of humour lol.Kudos pal

      • ceylon mooney

        YOURE FIRED!

    • maxx

      ABSOLUTELY!

      • Barley mcgrew

        Note the poster above (‘Donald Trump Triumphant’.Now blocked) – who took me to task for insulting his hero on a boxing website ? (was Trump not once connected to boxing ?).

        The Donald sure does still have his supporters – although even Shepard Smith (Fox News) has started to question Trump’s endless contradictory statements now. Give it time – even that channel will loathe him. Kudos mate.
        .

        • maxx

          Indeed Trump Plaza did host boxing bouts, so I imagine he had a lot of dealings with his pal KIng and enemy Arum,,,,,,,I suspect even Fox news will turn against him due to his childish antics, the only exception will be Breitbart.Kudos pal.

    • Wade Wilson

      I hate the man but, not to be mean, I’d like to keep politics in other places but if you want to talk about his dealings in the sport about twenty to thirty years ago that would be fun!

    • Abraham E. Hernández

      Welcome back.

  • ceylon mooney

    clean up your rankings, follow ur own guidelines.

    the champ at 160 has never fought at 160. according to ur own rules he shouldnt be ranked at a weight class hes never fought at.

    and u got cotto ranked for talking about fighting? thats a goodun too.

    i lnow u guys make exceptions, but those two sre really absurd.

    also pacquiao is still the top dog at 147. since the rankings aint completely mythical, someone gotta do something to earn a higher spot than pacquiao, and we all know he never retired. and nobody done anything to esrn a higher spot than pacquiao.

    keep the site free. get the rankings business straightened out. also, u dont always ket us know when ur runnin a press release as an article. keep them journalistic standards.

    • Chris Stans

      I dislike Canelo but as long as he fought under 160 pounds, he technically fought at middleweight

      • ceylon mooney

        thats not true because thats not how weight classes work. he may be a middleweight, but a fight is at middleweight if and only if its at 16o and under

        why?

        because weight classes are set by limit, not by how i feel or what i weigh in at or a catchweight. 155 is not 160.

        furthermore, a middleweight can fight at 168. if i weight 159 i can fight at 168.

        • Chris Stans

          Yes weight classes are set by limits. Meaning 160 is the absolute limit for how much u can weigh at the weigh-in while still fighting as a middleweight. As long as the catchweight is above 154 pounds, it is still in the middleweight range. People only use this anti-catchweight logic when it’s a fighter they dislike

          • ceylon mooney

            i just explained how weight classes work. how u ormi feel ablut a fighter doesnt change that. 160 doesnt magically
            become 155 cuz of how you or i feel.

          • Chris Stans

            155 is above the jr mw limit but also does not exceed the mw limit. And as such, a fight at that agreed weight is by default a middleweight fight

          • ceylon mooney

            nope. it may be a fight between middleweights, but that particular fight isnnotmat middleweight nor isnitmat any weight class because 155 is not a weight class.

            a fight is at 160 if and only if the weight limit is 160. if the weight limit is 155 then its not 160.

          • Chris Stans

            It is called the Middleweight title not the 160 pound title. That is a slang term used because certain weight classes have two names depending on which sanctioning body(as well as an alternative shorter way of naming a division) Anything above 154 but not exceeding 160 is middleweight

          • ceylon mooney

            weight classes are set
            by limit not by nickname. all weight classes have at least one nickname. several have two, like 122, 130, 140 and a few others.

            weight classes are not determined by what a fighter weighs in at, no matter who the fighter. 155 is not a weight class.

    I think a story needs to be done on Floyd never fighting at Madison Square Garden…or anywhere else besides Vegas.

    Can you please find a way to allow me to stay logged in on your website (not just have my password remembered but stay logged in).

  • GGG

    HORRIBLE CALL! KOV DESERVES THE WIN. LOW BLOWS WERE OFFICIAL. HOW DOES SOMEONE LOSE A FIGHT AFTER WINNING 5-7 ROUNDS THEN LOW BLOWS SOMEONE FOR THE WIN?

  • Flash

    Fighters should weigh in just before the fight and be the weight of that division. How can someone be considered the middleweights champ if he won the fight while being 180lbs?Boxing is a dangerous game one fighter should never be a lot heavier than the other for safety reasons.

  • Luc Bergeron

    I would like your ratings to show the 4 major recognized sanctioning bodies (WBC, WBA, IBF, WBO) champion per division … as it was in KO Magazine … and I would also like your magazine to publish the ratings of the 4 major sanctioning bodies as well … By the way, I liked more your website before … I also liked the summary of the fights that went through out the boxing planet … And I don’t care about MMA …

  • Giuseppe

    Golovkin isn’t fat.

    This is a real fact (see the Barley / Ceylon debate fopr details).

  • Andrii Matiash

    Bullish shit!!!!!!
