The Squared Circle

The Squared Circle

There’s a scene in the movie Hoosiers where the coach of the small town Indiana basketball team gathers his players and together they measure the opposing team’s home court dimensions in order to prove the point that, although their opponents come from the big city and play in a big arena, it’s still a regulation size court no different than their own. You’ll never see that scene in a boxing movie. Rocky Balboa could train everyday in a 18 foot ring and then finally face Apollo Creed for the world title in a 22 footer. Like a lot of things in the sport of boxing, there’s very little consistency and plenty of randomness.
