Ring Magazine worth buying anymore?

I've been tempted to pick one up but can't see any point in buying one these days other than nostalgia: Anything worth getting it for?

I buy one occasionally only for the "Perfect Execution" section which is written by Bernard Hopkins and features great tips for young boxers.

It honestly depends man. Honestly I say try picking up issues every once and a while and if you see yourself reading over all of them over and over, then yeah go for a subscription.

It has gone downhill bigtime since being bought out by Golden Boy Productions. If you need a laugh, read what they say about any Golden Boy fighter. The historical and Hopkins articles are the best things about the rag.

I like to think its more credible because the ring belt is worth more than all the others.

I still pick it up from time to time, it annoys me when ever there is a piece on a british boxer, the writing is terrible feels so biased

I used to buy Ring, KO and the other 2 sister publictions every month from like 1996 to about 2003, but I think it's fallen off since GB bought it too.

Now I don't know if they still do this bc I havent picked one up since around '07 but they always had a section with an old article from the 70's or earlier and they showed the rankings and everything from that time. That was always interesting to me.

Plus they'd have an article on an old-time boxer almost every month that was a new article and I liked that as well.

If they still do that then it might be worth it, but TBH what really pisses me off is the last time i bought one, 4 years ago, it cost me 8.95 and that's a little steep if you ask me

I still get it monthly, they quit doing perfect execution which is a damned shame

buy it if it has a nice or memorable cover. When i was a young kid I used to buy magazines (any kind) based on the cover and once they left circulation I would flip them for profit.

Once I had a mag I paid a few $$ on the newstand and 3 months later I sold it for $200
