    Default Toughman Contest (32X)

    There are tons of boxing games out there and sadly, most of them stink. That's why NES owners were so darn lucky to get Mike Tyson's Punchout. The awesome action was matched only by the memorable characters, and Sega gamers spent years on the outside looking in. In 1995, Electronic Arts sought to rectify that with Toughman Contest for the fledgling 32X. Was it as good as Nintendo's effort? You'll have to read our full review to find out!

    I'm still wondering why they ported this over to the 32X. Why?
    The smell of scorched oil hangs in the air as a premonition of danger, while the engine gloriously shouts its war cry...

    Throughout history, suspicion has always bred conflict. The real conflict, though, resides in people's hearts. This conflict has just begun.

    I think the reason this game didn't sell was the HORRIBLE box cover. The game features fit boxers, but the cover features some fat, pasty, bald white guy in striped shorts. It's ugly. It makes you want to look away, quickly!

    However I'll take a wireframe boxer over Super Punch-Out's transparent boxer anyday. Although I think the wireframe was done better in the original Punch-Out than in Toughman Contest.

    I thought it was King Kong Bundy in boxer shorts. But still... it's BOXING! Not wrestling.

    Butter Bean is the most famous man in Toughman Contest history so his appearance on the box makes sense... despite how dopey he looks.

    Weird. So it's NOT a boxing game? It's something else related to boxing? One of those ESPN niche sports?

    It's boxing, just a toughman contest.

    The toughman contest is an amateur boxing tournament.
