Ring (Grose 1811 Dictionary)

Ring

Money procured by begging: beggars so called it from its ringing when thrown to them. Also a circle formed for boxers, wrestlers, and cudgel-players, by a man styled Vinegar; who, with his hat before his eyes, goes round the circle, striking at random with his whip to prevent the populace from crowding in.

Definition taken from The 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue, originally by Francis Grose.
