What is Boxing Ring
The International Boxing Federation (AIBA) stipulates that the maximum boxing ring for international official competitions such as international boxing championships, Olympic boxing matches, and World Cup boxing matches shall not exceed 6.10 meters square. The inner ring of the boxing ring for a general competition can be between 4.90 and 6.10 meters square, depending on the specific situation.
There will be a special step at a neutral corner of the boxing ring. This step is only used by doctors outside the ring and the referee on the ring. Another function of this step is to avoid any contact between the two sides of the competition. There are 5 to 7 cm thick and 20 cm wide soft pads at the four corners of the stage, which are divided into red and blue. Generally, the red pad is located on the left of the referee’s bench, which represents the red corner. Put blue pads on the opposite corner, representing the blue corner, and white soft pads on the other two corners, which are neutral corners. The plastic bag at the neutral corner is used to store the hemostatic cotton balls and gauze used by the referees on the stage.
Boxing Ring related information
There are generally three ropes between the two adjacent columns of the boxing ring, and the distances of each rope from the bottom to the top of the boxing ring are 40 cm, 80 cm, and 130 cm, respectively. Each rope is wrapped in a soft, smooth material that prevents athletes from chafing. There will be a 50cm excess outside the ring to prevent the athlete from falling off the ring. In order to make the rope more secure, two pieces of canvas with a tight texture and a width of 3 to 4 cm can be used to fix it. There are also four ropes between the two adjacent columns of the boxing ring.
