    What are your thoughts between these 3 boxing rings? Ideally, from what you've experienced.

    my vote is the third one you have listed (18ft)

    i like the raised ring to
    -step up, sit ups, etc off the edge
    -not sure what the rules are over there, but it's probably closer to regulation if you ever wanted to hold an event and use that ring (can also be used for rental for other people's events)
    -looks more real for film opportunities (i get that's not what you're asking for, but with option 3 this can be another possible revenue stream that the others won't)
    -when teaching beginners how to step with punches i like a hollow floor to hear the thump when they step and punch hard

    note: your second option looks good, like it'll have more support, but not actually. all those bolts or welds at the top will take a lot of stress. if you do go with this one, i would invest in some support cables to go from corner to corner at the top of the metal box frame (have you ever looked under a regulation >3' raised ring? there's cables going from corner to corner to balance out the tension from the ropes above. in this model you're considering the ropes will be the lower tension and the suggested cable will be the upper tension)

    My budget isn't stretching as far as the third one. At the moment it looks like I'm going to buy the first one - 16ft. I've been told it's stable and stability can be increased by screwing it to the ground. Ideally, I'd like the third one.
