Buying a new boxing ring is a significant investment, whether you're a gym owner, event organiser, or an enthusiast looking to set up a home training space. To ensure you make the right choice, it's essential to consider various factors. This buyer's guide will help you navigate the process of purchasing a new boxing ring:
Budget: Determine your budget upfront. Boxing rings come in a wide range of prices, so understanding how much you're willing to spend will help narrow down your options. Just keep in mind that low budgets are necessarily the best options. As a wise man once said...
'Good things aren't cheap, and cheap things aren't good'.
Size: Boxing rings come in various sizes, with standard dimensions for amateur and professional bouts. A typical boxing ring is around 5 to 7 meters square (16 to 24 feet square), but sizes can vary. Ensure you choose a size that suits your space and intended use.
Style: There are two major styles or types of boxing rings. There are those for training and those for competing in. Our Fuji Training Series Boxing Rings are perfect for any gym looking to purchase a Boxing Ring at a relatively lower price as these boxing rings are floor-mounted and will save you the expense of extra steel, wood, foam floor, canvas etc. Our Fuji Competition Boxing Rings on the other hand are elevated 3 feet off the ground just like professional boxing rings and offer a pro-level look and feel and add an atmospheric ambiance to any pro event or gym.
Quality and Durability: Look for a well-constructed and durable ring that can withstand heavy use. Steel frames and sturdy canvas or vinyl canvases are common features of high-quality rings. Consider the thickness of the padding and the quality of the ropes. All Fuji Boxing Rings are made with High-Grade Steel, fully powder coated to prevent any rust and cover up all weld marks as well as finished off with quality fittings and steel cabelled ropes that are padded with foam and vinyl wrapped. We also offer the choice of traditional canvas of modern easy-to-clean vinyl floor covers designed with your club or event logos.
Safety: Safety is paramount. Make sure the ring meets all relevant safety standards, such as those set by organisations like USA Boxing, AIBA, or your local boxing authority. Look for features like corner post padding and turnbuckle covers to prevent injuries.
Ease of Installation: Consider how easy it is to assemble and disassemble the ring. Some rings are modular and can be set up relatively quickly, while others may require professional installation.
Materials: Pay attention to the materials used in the construction of the ring. Canvas and vinyl are common for the ring floor, but consider the quality and durability of the material. The ropes should be strong and resistant to wear. It's hard to see quality over the internet as details are not really highlighted or easily seen such as patchy hand weld v's precision robotic weld to which Fuji is proud to be one of the first companies to offer robotic welding for their Boxing Rings and MMA cages and other structural steel equipment making us a pioneer in this space.
Brand Reputation: Research different manufacturers and sellers. Look for companies with a good reputation in the industry for producing quality boxing rings. You can rest assured that Fuji is one of the top-tier companies that offer the highest quality gear around.
Accessories: Determine what accessories are included or can be added to your purchase. This might include corner stools, turnbuckle covers, ring ropes, and more. Some packages may include a complete setup, while others require separate purchases.
Customisation: If you have specific requirements or branding needs, inquire whether the manufacturer or seller offers customisation options, such as personalised colours or logos on the canvas. We offer no-cost colour change and free logo printing. Just reach out to us with your design.
Warranty: Check for warranties and guarantees on the boxing ring. A warranty can provide peace of mind and protection in case of manufacturing defects. Buying from a reputable brand will minimise issues should they arise.
Transport and Storage: As a boxing gym owner, you may not have a need for transport or storage. As an event organiser, you will need to consider how the ring will be transported and stored when not in use. Lucky for any of our customers we've taken the liberty to build our boxing rings into easy modular pieces for easy transport.
