    Printed media just isn't big anymore. I've watched boxing as a massive fan since the early 90's and I've never even heard of this magazine. This magazine going is hardly an indicator that boxing is dying. It's different times now anyway, when Mike Tyson fought bums in front of millions of viewers back then, there wasn't much else for anyone to do, now there is. Netflix, computers, people would rather be on them than accepting for mismatches like they used to. When there's a big fight, people watch. They just won't watch fights like Tyson vs Peter Mcneeley in these times and accept it.

      Not a bad magazine, may even still have a few editions from the mid-00s. Haven't bought it for years though.

        My local library used to carry these magazines and I would spend hours reading them...

          But, if I'm forced to pick one mag to survive, it's Boxing News.
          The #1, even more important than The Ring when papers ruled.

            The Ring is on it's last leg, should be gone in a year or two I predict.

              I still find The Ring mag good reading, but I'm afraid you're right.
              The price has been raised, the pages are fewer.

                Eventually it will go all digital if anything. Not enough money to be made from the print version.
