Mike Tyson vs “Mike Tyson” in Punch-out!!!


Ever imagined if  Mike Tyson can beat “Mike Tyson” of the 1987 classic Nintendo Entertainment’s Mike Tyson’s Punch-out!  To those who are not familiar or are too young to remember, Mike Tyson was the game’s final boss  and he was just a knockout nightmare. Beating him feels like a rite of passage for gamers. Now, could the real Mike Tyson win against a pixilated version of himself?



The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the ex-pugilist and current cartoon star accepted Jimmy’s challenge to go toe-to-toe with the video game Mike. Jimmy sure knows the classics, he is not “the king of nostalgia” for nothing.

Spoiler alert: it didn’t go so well.

Clearly, the real Mike Tyson learned little from last year’s battle against Punch Out! pushover Glass Joe, though, to be fair, that was the very first time he had played the game.

Pro tip, Mike: Do what the rest of us did and use the pass key 007 373 5963 to skip the other fighters and warp right to you. Mike just really need to dodge more but he’s not a hardcore gamer. Simply seeing Mike Tyson take a shot at himself is simply entertaining to watch.
