Fight Night Round 2 Spokesman Announced

Electronic Arts announced today that Bernard Hopkins, the Middleweight Champion of the World, will serve as the official spokesman and cover athlete for EA SPORTS Fight Night Round 2.

"It's great to be immortalized in an EA SPORTS video game and even a greater honor to be an EA SPORTS cover athlete for the most realistic boxing game ever created," said Bernard Hopkins. "Being a fan of the series, Fight Night Round 2 really captures the intensity and excitement of the sport, but without the pain."

New features planned for the sequel include online play, an expanded "total control" analog punching mechanic, and the incorporation of new supercharged knock-down punches, which the company is currently calling "Haymaker Blows." An interface to heal injuries between rounds is also in the works.

Fight Night Round 2 is scheduled to be released in March 2005 for both the PS2 and Xbox.
