Punch-Out!! was a very difficult video game. Anyone who played it will understand that. Mike Tyson, the final ‘boss’ of the game was particularly tough. Last night Jimmy Fallon was interviewing the real life Mike Tyson and presented him with a challenge: face off against the video game version of himself.

Like many before him, he failed miserably.

But who could blame him. You need the reactions of a hyperactive ninja-cat to beat Mike Tyson in Punch-Out!! and Tyson himself has always maintained that video games were never really his thing.

Poor bastard never even knew what him. Well he did know I guess. Mike Tyson hit him. Mike Tyson hit Mike Tyson.


  • If your keen for editing your story Mark “Poor bastard never even knew what him.” = “Poor bastard never even knew what hit him.” 😉

  • I beat it when I was 10. But now, as a 34 year old man I can barely clear the first circut. I’m not sure if it’s age, or modern game design that has soften my skills so much.
