Anyone old enough to remember Marv Albert on NBC calling a James Scott bout live from Rahway State Prison will want to pay attention to this, the bareknuckle jailhouse fight within the “Champion Mode” of Fight Night Champion.

Promised by EA Sports when Champion Mode was first revealed last month, this fight pits protagonist Andre Bishop (you) against a tatted-up bighouse badass, with just skin and tape separating fistbones from facebones. It’s not the first game to include prison fights – Mafia II had them – but this one looks like it requires more strategy and timing, plus a headbutt or two.

Fight Night Champion arrives March 1.
