Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! debuted on NES 33 years ago, so we're due for a new rendition of it. At least, that's what Tyson himself thinks, and we agree.
During our interview with the boxing legend, he expressed interest in a new Punch-Out!! title, or at the very least a game by way of his cannabis licensing and branding company, Tyson Ranch. And honestly, we're ready to see that happen.
"Hey listen, we're going to start our own Punch-Out!! game and our own Tyson Ranch computer game and bring it back to life, man," he said during our chat with Shacknews CEO and Editor-in-Chief Asif Khan. "Bring back Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!."
We had a very fruitful and entertaining interview with Mike about a variety of topics, including weed, Islam, and how much he genuinely seems to enjoy helping people, despite the mistakes he himself has made over the course of his life.
We'll be breaking out several stories from this particular interview over the next week or so. Be sure to keep it locked on Shacknews for tons more awesome Tyson coverage – and video game fun, of course.
