Our mission is to provide beginner, intermediate and advanced boxers with useful, reliable and accurate information when it comes to latest fighting news, product reviews, fighting techniques, injury prevention and anything that we write about here. To do this, we recognised early on that we would need an editorial policy to govern how we construct our articles and that we can refer to before publishing. Find details on what you can be sure our writing consists of below.
If you have any questions, thoughts, ideas or complaints regarding our editorial policy (or anything on our site for that matter!) please get in touch by using our contact us page or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you.
Our Approach to Writing
All of the writers at Ringside Reviews take a strict approach to writing their content and share a process used to ensure information included within published features is accurate and reliable. We ask ourselves a few key questions before, whilst and after we are finished writing to keep this philosophy in check.
- Would I want to read this/find this useful/enjoy this? Lets face it, if we the authors didn’t want to read the piece we are working on, why should you! Asking ourselves this simple yet key question allows content ideas which wont be most useful, entertaining and informative to you, the users to be throw aside early on in the brainstorming process.
- What details, data and evidence would I need to trust this source? This is something that is constantly changing as we find new and exciting resources to cite and consult on our pieces. One thing is for sure though, thorough research and sourcing data and information from leading boxing experts is hardwired into our writing process.
- Would I enjoy reading this? When it is all said and done and the piece is complete, one vital question remains. We ask ourselves if we (and our users) would genuinely enjoy reading this piece. After all, we want to make reading our site almost as fun as it is to spend some time hitting the heavy bag or doing some pad work (alright, at a push we know, but we should all get lost in an online article every now and then!).
You will see mentioned numerous times throughout our content but we wanted to take this opportunity to reiterate the point – we are not offering medial or certified advice. Any and all content should be taken at face value and you should always consult a trained professional and/or your primary healthcare professional before starting any new fitness regime, changing your diet, committing to a large boxing purchase or trying out any techniques mentioned here.
We are proudly part of the Amazon associates affiliate scheme which allows us to fund our website and continue creating great content about the sport that we love. When you see links to Amazon in our articles and buyers guides, they contain a reference tag in the URL which lets Amazon know that we sent you. If you order (and doing so is entirely up to you!), we will receive a small commission. If you do not wish to support the running of this site with your purchase, you should refer to your cookie settings (if you’ve already clicked a link) and go direct to the Amazon site to find and order your desired product.
Our writing team are boxing and combat sport enthusiasts, not necessarily professional fighters or coaches. Whist when collating data and information for our pieces we may seek the advise or fighting veterans, ex-professionals (and occasionally current professionals we hope!) and licensed coaches, this is not guaranteed. Our writers are excellently equipped to source the most accurate and reliable information available to them through researching customer reviews, buying trends, Google trends for products and manufacturer guarantees which is why we are confident reviewing the products we do.
The writers have been boxing for several years and spend a great deal of time researching every single piece. We hope you can appreciate how much hard work, expertise, time and resources go into our articles.
