    Sorry if a silly question but don't all rings have to be the same size??

    With the exception of training rings etc.

    no they dont. They have to be within a specific range depending on location and commision.

    A bit like a football field also has to be within a range of width. if you think back to the days when Arsenal had a very narrow pitch at Highbury and Man utd had (still has) a wide pitch at old trafford. A team can then play this to their advantage.

    Canelo wants a narrower ring so he can cut down someone who might be thinking of doing a lot of jabbing and moving to tire him out, not that Saunders will do that, to give away that tactic he'd have to have a hissy fit over the size of the ring being too small.....oh wait.

    Unless someone’s willing to pay me a decent amount of money there is zero chance of me sitting through that snoozefest again!

    Jim Watt used to do this really annoying thing when a British fighter boxed abroad on Sky he would score it “how he thinks the judges are scoring.” He scored Haye vs Valuev for Valuev but kept saying “This isnt what I think this is what I think the judges will have it” then had egg on his face when it was scored fairly in the end.
