Mayweather Vs Pacquiao Video Game Needs To Exist: Watch A 'Punch Out!!' Recreation Of Last Weekend's Fight
I feel like it's safe to say that most gamers' boxing knowledge comes entirely from Punch-Out!! The classic NES game once starred Mike Tyson, but thanks to the folks behind clever YouTube channel Noober Goober Gaming you can now see the Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao fight recreated in 8-bit brilliance.
There are some real nice touches to the video, as well. They poke fun at all of Floyd's ridiculous pre-fight terms, which you have to agree to in order to even play the game. The game itself is now titled Floyd Mayweather's Punch-Out!!, and you play as Little Pac, instead of the original's Little Mac. The graphics are perfect, as is the dialogue while resting between fights. Oh, and that code that they enter at the beginning of the game, 007-373-5963? That's the original code you entered to skip straight to fighting Tyson.
Perhaps the best part of it all is that this this video was created before the fight occured and managed to predict not only the outcome but most of how the fight went, with not much action and a whole lot of hugging.
