Welcome to African Ring. We provide boxing fans with an abundance of boxing memorabilia.

This includes autographs, photos, programs and books and much more. Our passion for boxing stems from the love of the art form and the extent to which people push their own bodies.

Where boxing is a dangerous sport it is also a gratifying event. It is a fascinating athletic showcase of individuals who use technique and swagger to outwit their opponents.

As such, African Ring celebrates the past and present of boxing in South Africa and the world. Our memorabilia ensures that you can admire the success of boxing professionals. The items hold memories of fighters of days gone and more present fighters.

Furthermore, we provide boxing news on upcoming events which are taking place and events which have passed.
