Barry McGuigan World Championship Boxing

Sadly a bit out of date this, since the objective is to battle your way through professionals and semi-professionals until you can take on Elena for the world title he's now lost. To do better you are able to mix and match your own boxer from a range of options, once you are happy with your creation you go to the training camp - the amount of time allowed varies so make the most of it. In the ring the boxers slug it out over ten three minute rounds, it's a long way to the top of the ladder so get climbing. Sad to say that I didn't greatly enjoy playing this. In the ring the boxers are limited to a few fairly ineffectual moves, whilst each time I attempted to create a new fighter the outcome of a bout was always the same - the other guy wiped the floor with me. For bored boxing fanatics only.
