EA has just posted another Fight Night Round 4. This one talks about boxer styles.

Quote:
"Styles make fights. It’s an old boxing adage that succinctly describes how the boxing styles of two combatants determines the type of fight they will have. If you put two cutesy southpaw counter-punchers in against each other and you’re probably not looking forward to a barnburning slugfest. If you put to face-first, take-two-to-give-one sluggers in against each other and you probably won’t have an exhibition of outstanding defensive technique on your hands. Creating a diverse set of boxing styles for the AI in Fight Night Round 4 has been a focus since the early stages of development.

There are a lot of things that make up a boxer’s style. First off, you have the stance: orthodox or southpaw. An interesting twist in Fight Night Round 4 is the addition of independent power ratings for each hand. This allows you to make a southpaw boxer with a dominant right hand, or vice versa. The boxing world is full of natural southpaws that were converted to fight right-handed by trainers early in their career. In Fight Night Round 4 you can simulate that effect with created boxers and you can expect licensed boxers that fought this way to have their attributes reflect that."

I really like that we can import created fighters into the career mode as an opponent.

I know. I was geeked to hear this too.
There's one more tidbit about using imported fighters in your career mode that I'm excited to talk about.
It's nothing too big, but it's definitely something that some people will love.

I'm hoping in the next 2 weeks.
Like I said, it's nothing big, but it's a nice feature that some will go ga-ga over.

Is there a limit to how many created fighters that we can import?
