Default Went to a magazine store tonight . . .

. . . was going to treat myself to a boxing rag. Its been quite some time since I bought one. There was much guns, gossip, and sports, (and an a ridiculous amount of fantasy football). But I found only one wrestling magazine, four martial arts, and no boxing.

Is there still a boxing magazine in (paper) publication?

Nobody locally gives a fig about boxing, and why should they?

I have no boxing magazines in my local store too. But I know some online sources like boxingnewsonline, ring tv, ringsideboxingnews. Online sources are more comfortable and easy to reach to, so love them. This is why everything is now online, shopping, different services etc. So to promote right now on the internet the site owners need [Link View Has Been Removed. Click Here To Unlock This Content.].

I used to pickup The Ring magazine every now and then at my local Giant Eagle grocery store but they stopped carrying them about 2 years ago. I have not seen any around this area since. The quality, quantity and writing content has gone way downhill over the years. Their major fight capsules/descriptions are just terrible now. Not really worth it to buy anyways.

I see The Ring at a store every now & again. I've not seen a non-Ring boxing mag at any store in years.

Haven't been into a Barnes and Noble in awhile doe either & in the past they were good for having a few boxing mags.

Funny, that's where I was, Barns and Noble. Maybe they were sold-out. It was The Ring Magazine I was hoping to buy.

Wow really? They usually have every kind of magazine known to humanity there, including at least 3 devoted to martial arts or mixed martial arts. Strange they wouldn't have any boxing mags.

Yea, they had four different martial arts mags and one wrestling (the BS kind) I use to always get my Ring there, I will try again, although a few posters are not saying very nice things about where the magazine has fallen to.
