Hitting the NES in September 1987, Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out (later re-released just as Punch Out) was your chance to earn the right to fight then then undisputed world heavyweight boxing champion! In the game you play as a boxer known as Little Mac and fight your way up the rankings of the World Video Boxing Association.
In order to move up the rankings you must travel round the world to defat all the other boxers including Frenchman Glass Joe, West German Von Kaiser, and minor circuit champion Piston Honda from japan (hit him when his eyebrows wiggle!).
After concurring the minor circuit it is off to Madrid, Spain to fight Don Flamenco the former bull fighter (watch his taunts and then strike!). The next stop on your trip is Hippo Island in the South Pacific where you have to fight King Hippo (King Hippo can only be hit on the belly when his hands are up). King Hippo will not get up again once you knock him down.
India is up next as you box the teleporting Great Tiger, then it is off to Istanbul, Turkey to battle Bald Bull (time you body blow counters well). Then back to Russia for Vodka Drunkenski (later renamed Soda Popinski), then African American Mr. Sandman, before fighting the World Circuit Champion Super Macho Man.
After winning the championship you get the dream match – “Iron” Mike Tyson (or Mr. Dream in later releases after the Tyson license expired). Tyson is regarded as one of the hardest final bosses to beat in video game history!
