In the subject of sport, it seems that there is always an outright victor in each in field. For athletics, it was Daley Thompson; for football, it was Alan Shearer. In the field of boxing, Mohammed Ali was considered to be the greatest boxer of all time. Many supporters will argue that this is still the case. However, a certain featherweight champion, a MBE, and unbeaten in as many as 35-fights is out to take the place of this hero for the new millennium. Prince Naseem is that boxer, and his popularity is such that he now has his own video game on PlayStation.

The art of boxing is not primarily a physical one, strangely enough. The importance of tactics needs to be realised if you are to succeed in this fist fest of a game. You must learn to effectively use both attack combinations and defence moves to improve your game. Thankfully, you are given the opportunity to do this in the game’s practice mode. Once you feel confident enough to take on a real fight, you can challenge the world in a career season of boxing.

Surprisingly, there aren’t a great number of boxing titles around, but with the increase in the popularity of the sport, there is no doubt that the market will be flooded with these games. Until then, Naseem Boxing should satisfy every boxer’s needs.
