  1. Awesome news, Gatti, Ward and Frazier are great gets, and I was happy to see Robert Helanius signed up, too for some solid depth at HW.  Can't wait for this to hit.

    Really excited for this, hopefully puts EA on their toes!

    I’m ready to see someone else take the mantle in the boxing genre. This game is shaping up to be amazing , I can’t wait to see more tbh. I really want Chris Eubank and Shakur Stevenson dude. That **** would be so lit

    Super excited for this game. I have heard so much moaning about EA making UFC and dropping fight night and a really promising realistic boxing game is on the horizon and nothing but crickets from the community. Guess thats why no one is making boxing games.

    In all honesty I don’t want EA to create another UFC game, they dropped the ball 4 times IMO and I’m so happy that we now have a team in steel city that is CRAZY passionate and in love with boxing and is willing to do their all to make this game the best boxing game ever made. You can’t go wrong with a passion project , you know their going to put their all into it.

    I'm not sure if I overlooked this, but I wonder if there will be a community share feature for created boxers and a way to edit the roster? AO Tennis had this feature which sold the game for me because I was able to have the real ATP 100. Having legends is cool but when I'm going through a career it takes away the realism for me when someone who retired 30 years ago has the belt.

    They've confirmed a boxer share feature on Steam.

    I really hope for the creation system to be in depth with the fighting styles and defense styles. I really want to have the Cross Guard or Philly Shell and be able to be defensively sound with certain blocks while incorporating the different punch animations.

    You absolutely can go wrong with a passion project. Very wrong.
    I'm hopeful and cautiously optimistic with this game, but I would not at all be surprised if it disappoints
