Ummm Everything? ESPN just posted a piece on the legacy of the game and the man himself, Iron Mike.  That game is still the greatest boxing video game EVER, eff what you heard. Peep it:

I still remember where I was the first time I saw Mike Tyson hit the canvas. No, not at the hands of Buster Douglas. I’m referring to when my friend Mike “Buzz” Bartholomew laid out the seemingly unbeatable animated Mike Tyson of “Punch-Out!!” fame. It was the summer of 1987, in the basement of my Billings, Mont., boyhood home. It felt as though we were witnessing history. It was a scene played out on Nintendo NES consoles everywhere. Beating Tyson was a victory so satisfying that two decades later, gamers of the time still talk about taking down the champ. “It took me two months to figure out Tyson’s knockout punch, but when I did, it was all over,” says Bartholomew, now an IT specialist. Sure, boxing was a much more mainstream sport 20 years ago, but lots of video games came and went (“Ring King,” anyone?), so why does Punch-Out!! live on in our collective pop culture memory? It starts with Kid Dynamite himself.

Oscar gettin his endurance train on. We’ll see if it pays off on Saturday.

You already know what it is, Roy Jones Jr hops in the ring this Saturday to go toe to toe with Joe Calzaghe. He had a few words for HBO about the upcoming bout. Peep game.

Since B Hop was goin in on Pavlik’s face, squeezing off with the loaded gloves, I figured I would combine this post. Today’s song is called “Rap Ammunition”. Its a joint that me and J Trax did a cool one ago, and it still goes hard. Check out the joint then peep my take on last night’s fight after the jump.

Now you should know from all of the references in the freestyles that I am a HUGE boxing fan, so I had to make you aware of this fight on Saturday night. Kelly Pavlik vs Bernard Hopkins on HBO PPV.  Now for Hopkins, I expect him to come to the ring with the mentality that HE MUST STOP PAVLIK if he truly wants to win. That fact right there is what makes this fight a must see! Read the rest of this entry »
