"Real Boxing"? More like "You-can't-name-your-own-boxer-you-get-tired-in-3-punches-and-gameplay-bores-you-in-less-than-3-minutes Boxing."

Seriously, this game isn't worth your time nor money.

Only Fun For a While, And Not Very "Real"
- While the game does well in certain aspects to make the game fun and interesting, such as the counter system and the AI being challenging at the start of the career mode, it seems like there isn't much else to the game once you have played it for a while.
- The customisation options in this game are very limited as you can only change the accessories of your character, not the features of your character itself as you are given some pre-determined templated to use.
- Graphics look good on the highest settings and the sounds dont vary too much, pretty basic to be honest.
- The combat mechanics are simplistic for the punching, however when it comes to the movement of the player it is quite awkward and it sometimes feels like you are moving along a grid and your character jolts which looks odd.

If you pick this game up for like $1 then it may be for it but other than that i wouldn't really bother with it.

Not sure whether or not I can recommend this game. It's simple but if you have time to kill there are other games more enjoyable than this. It's also really easy to just farm attributes in the beginning of your career. Just don't proceed to win the first championship and continue doing solo matches. Then bulldoze through the three championships.

I'm torn on how to review this game.

If I consider it as arcade-ey, it's absolutely passable. I might even recommend it to a friend who is into the sweet science. If, however, I consider it as a boxing sim (which I think is how it's trying to present itself, given the title and promo material), it falls far short.

While the graphics are decent, that's about it. There just isn't much to this game.

There are three "tournaments" which will give you completion and credits. Credits can be used to purchase some upgrades (not many -- think "lower the stamina cost of your jab"). You can also play training minigames once every five fights to gain a few points in each of the three (just 3) main skill categories.

If you fight above your ratings, you'll be slaughtered. If you fight below, you'll be doing the slaughtering.

As for the fights, again, there's a good deal of what I'd consider necessities for a sim completely absent.

Blocking is all-or-nothing -- if you block, you'll block all punches, regardless of where they're aimed. No covering your midsection at the expense of your face, no getting your hands up and leaving your body exposed. Which, I should mention, isn't a huge problem, as there's no practical difference in where punches land. An uppercut to the midsection is equally as damaging as an uppercut to the chin, and neither will have any long-term bearing on the fight (e.g. no laying into body shots at the beginning of a fight to wear out an opponent).

Though the scorecard shown at the end of a fight has 12 rounds listed, fights always last 3. Rounds are 1 minute long.

All in all, if you're looking for what's essentially PunchOut with a less interesting cast of characters and improved graphics, this is probably worth your time. If you're looking for a sim, trying to be light like a butterfly and sting like a bee, applying that sweet science all over your opponent's face, look elsewhere.
