    honestly there is nothing on it what you cannot get 3 months earlier at any of 20 boxing internet sites.

    by the time you read it , it is way out of date.

    big newsagents stock it as do whs smith.

    As has already been said it tends to be quite out of date when it arrives.

    The Ring magazine use to be out of date by months a while back, but not now. The lastest one with Calzaghe and Hatton on the front was out in the States on the 3rd, and I got it in my newsagents in the 11th.

    The lastest one with Floyd Mayweather on the front was released days ago in the States, it will be available in the UK next week.

    Its only a week, or just over a week out of date.

    The Ring offers pretty pictures. MAgazines do often go a little bit more in depth thus you find out cool things.

    I only get boxing news every few weeks when i want something to read.

    I used to buy pretty much all the boxing magazines, I don't bother since they invented the Interweb. Its easier, quicker and cheaper.....the quality of articles is patchy (esp ESBs frontpage) but on the whole they arn't bad.

    Yup.I used to buy it regularly.Now there online theres no need.I dont even buy Boxing News anymore.All of the "news" is out of date.Espcially the ring who work 3 months backwards.The only good thing about that mag was the some of the old articles and stories on fighters from the past.

    I always buy it from WHSmith. The internet is cool but I like to read in bed and sometimes in the garden (when it's not raining of course).

    The Ring doesn't work 3 months backwards. The new issue out in the States at the very start of the month is out now in the UK.

    Its got Mayweather on the cover, so how soon your getting it the people in the States are as well, it was released there at the end of last week.
