The Best Mike Tyson Highlight Reel Ever Features Street Fighter II Music

If you have any interest in boxing whatsover, Mike Tyson highlight reels are just ridiculous. A small, underweight heavyweight, he just had so much speed, precision and power. This highlights video in particular is amazing, as it integrates Street Fighter music and sound effects perfectly.

It's cool partly because of how blatantly Capcom ripped off Mike Tyson's likeness back in the day. Balrog, as you are probably already aware, was based on Mike Tyson and actually called M. Bison in Japan. In the west they switched names with Balrog, meaning main boss in Street Fighter II is called M. Bison and not the boxer, who was changed to Balrog.

So yeah, pretty cool to see the two matched up in this way.


    Thankyou, this is just what I needed to kick off my Friday arvo procrastination..... love it !!!

    i ways thought it was like this
    The boxer is known as M. Bison in Japan and Balrog in the U.S.
    The Spanish assassin is known as Balrog in Japan and Vega in the U.S.
    The evil dictator is known as Vega in Japan and M. Bison in the U.S.

    Holy crap! Mike Tyson is terrifying. He certainly lives up to his appearance in Punch Out.
