'The Ring' magazine launches new web site

The Ring Magazine, "The Bible of Boxing," which is now owned by Oscar De La Hoya, announced that it has launched a re-designed website http://www.thering-online.com and begun a content alliance with Yahoo! Sports. The site features the latest from "The Ring" magazine, as well as more than 75 years of the magazine's archives. Additionally, as part of the alliance, the Yahoo! Sports boxing channel will feature editorial and video content from "The Ring" online.

"I’m thrilled with our new website," said The Ring's editor-in-chief Nigel Collins. "Partnering with Yahoo means that The Ring will now reach a far larger audience than ever before in its 86-year history, and allow us to serve both fans and the boxing industry in an innovative and exciting new manner.”

Just the thought of "The Ring's" archives being made available online is fascinating news.The news release continued to say that:

"The Ring" magazine, which focuses exclusively on the sport of boxing, has been published continuously since 1922. The online destination will feature writing from award-winning journalists, including Collins, Doug Fischer, Joe Santoliquito and Mike Rosenthal. "The Ring" online will also draw upon some of the biggest names in boxing to contribute regular columns, blogs and videos that will cover the sport on a global basis. Additionally, the new venture will digitize the archives of "The Ring," which will become the basis for one of the most extensive and complete searchable databases of boxers, fights and colorful boxing characters from the last century.
