Boxing Rings & MMA Cages UK - Europe
Revgear Europe supply quality boxing rings for Boxing, Muay Thai and K1 kickboxing as well as MMA cages with shipping throughout the UK as part of a complete combat sports fitting service.
Over the last ten years we have developed excellent partnerships with reliable fabricators in order to ensure that when our customers build a fight sports gym that they only ever have to buy the heavy stuff once.
When buying a boxing ring or a cage quality is absolutely critical as no one wants to have to replace or repair the centerpiece of their combat sports facility.
Revgear understand that when building a combat sports facility for the first time It feels like a minefield of choices, so let us help take the pain out of it. We will assist in every aspect of building a combat sports facility.
The goal for us is to ensure our customers get the gym they want, for a price that works.
After all, we know that once you have built a gym with REVGEAR our customers will stay with REVGEAR.
But don’t take our word for it, ask Eryk Paulson (CSW), Rafael Cordeiro (KINGS), ICY MIKE (Hard2Hurt) IMA LEEDS, Northern Kings Muay Thai, Primal Krav Maga, Mark Dellagrotte (Sittytong) Combat Academy and many, many more.
Boxing Rings are usually between 16 ft and 24 ft. Competition rings average 22 feet.
Some gyms use very small training rings which can be as small as 12 feet across albeit this is rare. So the short answer to the question is ‘any size the customer wants’ as all boxing rings are made to order.
There are stipulations in both amateur and professional boxing. The International Boxing Association (IBA), which sanctions Olympic-style boxing matches worldwide at the amateur level, stipulates a 20ft x 20ft ring to be used for all contests. This is also the size of boxing rings that are used at the Olympic games.
Professional boxing rings depend on the promotion but are usually larger, but generally professional contest rings are generally no smaller than 18ft x 18ft, and no larger than 24ft x 24ft.
There are three styles of boxing ring. Floor rings, platform rings and competition boxing rings.
Floor Boxing Rings - Are as the name suggests without a platform, sitting within an outer frame. The area within the ring can be 20mm matting or a standard canvas or both!
Elevated AKA low Platform Boxing Rings - Whilst still seen as a training ring, a low platform ring raises the ring up by approximately 12 - 18 inches. This creates a true sprung floor far more similar to that of a competition ring.
Competition Boxing Rings - A competition ring is built on a steel platform that raises the ring up by 3 feet. REVGEAR sells all three styles of boxing ring and can customize them to suit the needs of the facilities requirements.
Have it Your Way!
All our Boxing rings are custom made either in the UK or with our European Partners. IF you have a custom requirement we are happy to help.
Same answer as Boxing rings, whatever size you want. Cages are made in panels. Each panel is made to a size to create the overall structure. Common sizes of panel are between 1.75 and 2.25 metres but essentially any size can be made.
Most cages are eight panels to create an Octagon MMA Cage like on the famous UFC but some are also done as Hexagons with six panels.
Another increasingly popular cage design is a round MMA cage with panels made in a curve which completes a circle shape when put together.
Like Boxing rings, MMA cages can be built to sit on the floor, a small platform or a full elevated competition cage.
Floor MMA Cages
Due to the shape of a cage a floor cage is different in construction to a floor ring. The panels are the same on a floor cage as they would be in a competition cage. The location of a floor cage within the gym will to a degree affect how it is fitted.
Revgear will ensure your cage is right for its location within your facility during our consultation process.
Elevated MMA Cages
An elevated MMA cage can solve issues for a facility in a way that differences between a floor ring and elevated ring does not. Essentially an elevated cage can be positioned anywhere in a gym as it supports its own structure as opposed to a floor cage requiring “anchor points” in the room.
If the cage is to be a centre piece of your facility we would recommend you use an elevated cage for both stability and aesthetic purposes.
Competition or Platform Cages are designed only really for those who are intending to use them for fight events. The platform itself is similar to that of a boxing ring platform (see above)
Construction of a boxing ring is relatively simple and with the help of an instruction video or the printed sheet we can provide. Usually two guys will be able to construct a ring, even with little or no experience in a couple of hours. Experienced ring assemblers will put up a full size competition ring in under an hour.
This is an area where we may well recommend using our installation service if this is part of an overall fit. Pricing will be dependent on location. If you are confident you can install a cage we are happy to supply it to your facility and give advice or guidance as required.
How soon can I receive delivery of a Boxing Ring or Cage?
Lead times vary depending on production schedule and the specifics of the ring or cage that you need. Average waiting time is 6-8 weeks. It is always best to order a ring a long way in advance of opening your facility.
European and UK delivery times will be different, again depending on distances and production schedule.
A floor ring is generally made with a frame (See the images) of squared steel. REVGEAR only uses quality steel and a very high standard of welding.
This is essential for a professional gym as poorly welded rings or cheap thin steel is almost a guarantee of future problems with your ring.
We can provide 20mm matting, plain or printed canvasses and either REVGEAR corner posts or customized posts depending on your requirements.
A raised platform is made of a metal carcass. The ring’s frame is covered with wooden boards, on top of which is a matted underlay. Canvas is then tied on top of the foam padding to create a floor that’s quite springy, strong but also soft.
The materials used for a boxing canvas versus a cage are usually different as the ground fighting element of MMA requires a less rough surface than a canvas. However all can be printed upon and customized. REVGEAR are happy to work to the customers requirements alongside our partners both in the UK and Europe.
Livery for the corner posts (or cage pads), Ropes (or Cage covers) and the canvas can all be made to your specification be it with your Gym logos or with sponsors, web URLS and messaging.
REVGEAR understand the sports in which we operate and will do all we can to make the process simple and smooth.
RACKS - RIGS & BAGS
We are aware this doesn't end with the ring or cage. In fact you most likely need Heavy bags, racks and maybe weight lifting/cross fit style rigs. Look no further we have everything you covered whatever your requirements are.
