The Top 10 Greatest Boxing Things EVER!
in no particular order in order!)
(whatever you answered, you're wrong)
Balrog - The 1st underboss and one of the whackest combatants in Street Fighter 2. He's kinda a pushover, and the only fighter in the game that can't kick, but he IS the iconic "boxer" character in the greatest one on one fighter franchise in video game history. Little known fact - originally he was named "M. Bison", but he too closely resembled "Mike Tyson", so his name was swapped with the red cap wearing boss of SF2 in the American release.
Twilight Zone ep. "Steel" - In a future where the sport of boxing is only done by robots, a human boxer disguises himself as a battling robot in order to compete in the ring to win the prize money. It's man vs. machine where the outcome is hardly ever in question, but a true showcase of human spirit and determination.
Homer Simpson vs. Drederick Tatum - "Homer's not a 'boxer', he's just a ... 'Freak!'" - the words of Homer's fight manager Moe when approached with the chance for Homer to take on the heavyweight champ. The huge purse - win or lose - is enough to change Moe's mind to put Homer in the ring which will most likely be his tomb. Brilliant.
Rocky III - 2 words: "Clubber Lang". 4 words: "Eye of the Tiger". 6 MORE words: "Hulk Hogan's acting debut as Thunderlips". All that plus the time tested awesomeness of "former enemies working together (Rocky & Apollo) to take down the new evil". Many people argue 3's superiority over 4, but this movie changed 'running on the beach' now and forever, and had one of the greatest closing sequences in cinematic history.
Mike Tyson's Punch Out - If you played the Nintendo Entertainment System in the 80's then you understand. Best boxing video game ever. Glass Joe. Piston Honda. Soda Popinski. Nuff said.
