Reach for the top of the rankings in a bold new era of boxing! The "Boxing Entertainment Commission" has shunned mundane sport in favour of exciting action - and you're cordially invited to join the fun. Create your own prize fighter from scratch and immerse yourself in gaming's most involving boxing universe - featuring up to 100 characters spread across 3 weight classes. Here, what happens in the ring is merely the first round - as you proceed backstage to manage your business affairs and plot your next career move! Negotiate lucrative contracts with the suits and then arrange matches with the talent - filling up your weekly schedule with spectacular pay-per-view bouts and history-making tournaments. Along the way, you'll transform your body to survive in the ring and adjust your attitude to survive backstage. With so many balls in the air, the only question is will your Reach exceed your grasp?

Version 1.95 Update
Click to download a patch that allows the boxed game to benefit from the very latest modifications. Further to the behind-the-scenes inconsistencies that were resolved in earlier versions, the latest updates set about improving your boxing experience by making clinches easier to initiate and managers less intrusive. They even make press conferences less repetitive by adding a greater variety of responses! We also address a few tiny inconsistencies that were affecting a boxer's in-ring health and injury status. And v1.9 catches a potentially troublesome bug that causes the game to crash upon changing resolutions, and also takes steps to ensure Tournaments pan out properly when you ask to control every match.
