Boxing Ring

 

a square area in which boxing matches are held. The sides of the ring are between 5 and 6 m long and are bounded by three rows of rope wound with strips of white material or by cables with protective covering (2.5–3 cm thick); the ropes or cables are stretched tightly between corner posts at heights of 40, 80, and 120 cm from the floor. The floor of a boxing ring is covered with a soft nonslip surface, such as felt, canvas, or a synthetic material. Rings are usually mounted on a platform 0.75–1.25 m high and 6 to 8 m long. The design of modern boxing rings traces its history to 1838, when the Revised London Prize Ring Rules were established.
