EA Featuring Heavyweight Legends In Fight Night Round 4
The sport of boxing may be struggling on paper, but in the video game world, EA keeps it alive and well with the likes of Fight Night Round 4, and let's not forget about Punch-Out! on the Wii.
For EA's boxing simulator, it appears they're going to be including many - if not all - of the biggest names in heavyweight boxing history. There are screens and character information up at the Inside EA Sports blog, and as you can see, the best of the best are there. Featured on the list are Muhammad Ali, Eddie Chambers, George Foreman, Joe Frazier, Lennox Lewis, James Toney, and Mike Tyson. ...are we missing anyone? Well, maybe Evander Holyfield and a few others leap to mind but for the most part, you can't be disappointed with this list of fighters. The screenshots also look downright fantastic and we have nothing but high hopes for this one, which is scheduled to release some time later this year. If you hadn't noticed, this is one franchise that is both popular and well received by the critics, so don't think it's all about Madden or The Show. EA really has generated a fine series here, and it's well worth your attention. They've got one more heavyweight fighter to announce; what would your selection be?
We'll let you know when EA tosses out a release date for Fight Night Round 4, and in the meantime, we'll keep digging around so we can get a more complete idea of the fighter roster. This is a great start, though, don't you think?
