Love in the Ring (German:Liebe im Ring) is a 1930 German sports film directed by Reinhold Schünzel and starring Max Schmeling, Renate Müller and Olga Tschechowa.[1] Schmeling was a leading German boxer of the 1930s, and the film attempted to capitalise on this. Schmeling later appeared in another boxing-themed film in Knockout (1935).

It was originally planned as a silent film, but sound was soon added as it became clear that silents were now unmarketable. The film's sets were designed by the art directors Otto Erdmann and Hans Sohnle. Some of the film was shot at the Berlin Sportpalast.
