your instincts are correct...and you're being quite ambitious.
Your Mac 250's won't be powerful enough. You'll need AT LEAST a MAC 500 or 600. (I normally use a MAC 2kw... the ideal would be a VL 3000).
Hang one square truss all around the ring approximately 20% bigger than your ring.
Here's a quick and easy way to light your fight. Divide your ring into 9 circular areas. Pretend each area is a clock face. Hang a source 4 PAR from the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions of each circle. Be sure to use the correct lens to create an equally intense beam with the same diameter coverage from the distance you're hanging at. Barn doors and light diffusion will be VERRYYY useful. You'll now be evenly lit all around the ring for every camera angle. You should also add specials into each boxer's corner. Be sure to keep the truss high so you don't blind the fighters ...or you'll be in deep trouble.
