Description

    PRIORITY CLAIM
  • This patent application claims benefit of the priority date of U.S. Prov. Pat. App. Ser No. 61/433,841 filed on Jan. 18, 2011, entitled BOXING AND MIXED MARITIAL ART TYPE EQUIPMENT, accordingly, the entire contents of this patent application is hereby expressly incorporated by reference.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • 1. Field of the Invention
  • The present invention pertains generally to sports equipment. More particularly, the present invention relates to training in the areas of mixed martial arts (MMA) and boxing. In a preferred embodiment, the present invention is more particularly useful as a hybrid fighting cage/boxing ring.
  • 2. Description of the Prior Art
  • Currently, a growing number of sports enthusiast are spectating and participating in fighting sports such as mixed martial arts (MMA) and traditional boxing. The enclosure where opponents compete is conventionally a “ring;” and more recently “cages,” for example the octagon, have been introduced specifically for MMA competition. Each contain a rope or fence area, respectively, to contain the fighting action and protect spectators while also allowing for a reasonable view thereof.
  • An early example of a fighting enclosure was awarded patent protection in 1955, entitled “Knock-Down Platform Construction,” to Nally, U.S. Pat. No. 2,726,866 that comprises a more convention ring popular for boxing and professional wrestling. Cages were later developed presumably because MMA opponents grapple and roll around on the ground more; and therefore the traditional constraining ropes would do little to contain the action to the ring. The present invention however, focuses on the problem of space constraints particularly in a training environment. U.S. Pat. No. 5,634,638 entitled “Portable Retractable Sports Enclosure,” to Havens et al. somewhat addresses this concern. However, the structural integrity of this solution is suspect.
  • In light of the above, it is an object of the present invention to provide a fighting enclosure suitable for MMA and boxing training to environments where space is a concern and where separate cages and rings are not feasible. It is an additional object of the present invention to provide an enclosure that is sturdy and structurally sound. Yet further it is another object of the present invention to address safety concerns of both participants and spectators. Still further, the present invention seeks to provide a hybrid fighting cage/boxing ring that can accommodate both boxing and MMA competition.
