    Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!

    A MIKE TYSON POWER PUNCH



    Tyson enters the packed arena to a deafening roar of the crowd. This is not a fight. This is boxing history. The youngest World Heavyweight Champion ever, Tyson is shrewd, self-disciplined, and awesomely strong. With raw power he throws controlled, quicksilver punches--a low right, an uppercut to the middle, a left hook out of nowhere--sending his opponent flying across the ring to fall insensible into the ropes. The crowd jumps up with a roar!

    GAME PLAY: You're little Mac, ranked #3 on the minor circuit. Coached by your trainer, Doc Louis, you fight your way up through three circuits (minor, major, and world) of the World Video Boxing Association. You have to beat 11 international opponents each tougher than the last. They all have unique moves and weaknesses. Learn them! You can train between circuits. If you're fast, smart, and tough enough, you'll get a crack at the ultimate dream bout with the World Heavyweight Champ--Mike Tyson. Good luck!
