Iron Mike Couldn't Even Beat Glass Joe
Before you laugh too hard, remember one thing- back in the day, non-gamers had no shot at being successful. All games were designed for those who practiced and practiced.
...even so, it's still funny. Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is an icon of the ring, but he had some definite problems with his NES game, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!
In fact, he just told TMZ that he couldn't even beat the game's first opponent, Glass Joe:
"I couldn't even beat Glass f***ing Joe. I couldn't beat Glass Joe; you know what I mean? I couldn't even play the game. I'm a late bloomer. I started playing games in 2006, 2007."
We're not sure how much he plays, though, because he said he really likes to play "Tour of Duty" and basically any game with zombies. By the way, Iron Mike actually had two other games after the '86 classic; there was Mike Tyson Boxing in 2000 for the original PlayStation and Mike Tyson's Heavyweight Boxing that released for the PS2 and Xbox in 2002. Yeah, games were a lot harder back then but I mean come on...Glass Joe?
Even I could beat Glass Joe.
