The Ring En Espanol

The Ring En Espaņol was a Spanish version of boxing publication Ring Magazine. Ring En Espanol was published from 1977 to 1985. Originally published from Caracas, it moved in 1981 to Miami, to Editorial America[?], the same editorial house that oversaw the production of Cosmopolitan's Spanish version.

Although Ring En Espanol covered every boxing event worldwide, it concentrated more than anything else on Hispanic boxers, helping boxers like Wilfredo Benitez, Wilfredo Gomez, Julio Cesar Chavez, Eusebio Pedroza, Roberto Duran, Santos Laciar, Antonio Cervantes[?], Pipino Cuevas, Ossie Ocasio, Lupe Pintor, Rafael Bazooka Limon, Edwin Rosario, Hector Camacho and many others become household names.

The unstable Latin American economy combined with rising magazine production costs and other factors caused The Ring En Espanol to come off the news-stands after the October, 1985 edition.
