This is a weird one.

Thieves stole the ring from Glass City Boxing, a gym in Toledo, and if it is not returned, the gym may have to cancel upcoming shows. They've been using the ring since the 1970s.

Trainer Tom Urbina says the ring was taken sometime Sunday and urges anyone with knowledge of the theft or the whereabouts of the ring to contact the local authorities.

Stealing an entire boxing ring. Who'da thunk to do it? I mean, what do you do with it? You can't use it publicly, really. I guess you could scrap some metal or wood? You can't pawn a boxing ring, can you?
