Anyone know why a boxing RING is square?

Confusion would ensue between rounds if boxers tried to go to their corners and there weren't any.

Which also begs the question: why are there rounds if the ring is square? Boxing makes no sense.

If it wasn't box shaped, it would be called the sport of Circling... instead of Boxing.

The Sport of Circling just sounds silly.

No silly, inspiration to purchase a boxer. Wonderful breed the boxer.

Yeah, but kind-of stubby and they walk funny.

I s'pose I can empathize... :/

Another 24-hours for Erik.

Let's see if he can pull off the hat-trick!

Three 24-hour kills in the space of a week. He needs one more by Saturday.

I am not going to let you make it 21 ...... job done!

I wonder what Wednesday is going to have in store? Really hot here, full day at work then I have to go to the apartment in Spain and finish the painting job I started at the weekend, 1 more wall to do, then clean up. The joys ☹️

Have a good day folks.

Whoa!!! And the hat trick is foiled! It's going to be mid 90's here today (which means it would be a little on the cool side for Moose and he would need a jacket). I have my first PT this morning, so that should be painfully fun :-)
