Description from the packaging.

Spanning the globe for 30 years, ABC's Wide World Of Sports has brought billions of sports fans up close and personal for boxing duels. But, boxing is much more than just throwing punches...

It's a sport that tests the core of your being. Spirit, heart, desire, strength and stamina are all stretched beyond their breaking points- and then asked to go just one more round. ABC's Wide World Of Sports Boxing is far more than the typical punching games. The detailed attention to creating a premier simulation and role-playing environment delivers a knock-out gaming combination that challenges all the rest.

Build your own boxer.

  • Create your boxer's unique look- more than 1,250 combinations.
  • Customize physical attributes like age, weight, reach and stance.
  • Allocate ratings points over ten different attributes.
  • Specify where you want to apply your punching power.

Launch a boxing career.

  • Live out a true-to-life boxing career in a comprehensive role-playing environment.
  • Hire and fire trainers and managers to stay on top of your career.
  • Purchase equipment with your earnings that will help prepare you for battles in the ring.
  • Schedule your fights wisely- stay challenged, but don't burn out.
  • Track your career- along with as many as nine other players- as you work your way to be #1.

Then climb into the ring.

  • Punch it out in Career or Exhibition mode- either with a friend or the computer.
  • Make use of all your skills: Jab, straight, hook, cross hook or uppercut.
  • Pace yourself and keep an eye on your stamina at all times.
  • Dance to protect your fighter with 72 different combinations.
  • Create your own boxers! You pick every detail of your new fighter's traits- from stamina to hairstyle to the most powerful punch.
  • In training camp you'll meet a wide range of managers and trainers eager to help you- naturally they'll want a share of your purses along the way.
  • Climb into the ring and always keep your guard up- you're just one hook away from tasting canvas.
  • Track your career month after month, as you work your way to the championship belt- or early retirement.
