Written Friday, March 25, 2011 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
A batch of Fight Night Champion DLC is set to make its way onto the PlayStation Store next week, with a host of heavyweight legends and some serious Bare Knuckle boxing, as previously seen in Andre Bishop's Champion Mode storyline, during the no-holds barred prison fights.
Fight Night Champion's Heavyweight Legends Pack will include five all-time greats to take into the ring and will include the Bare Knuckles Boxing Pack with its 'Old School Rules' all for $10. The five boxers are Rocky Marciano, Jack Johnson, Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis and Floyd Patterson. Each boxer can also be purchased separately for $2 each.
Alternatively, if you just want the standalone Bare Knuckles Boxing Pack, it'll cost you $4, offering online and offline bare knuckle bouts, in which Old School Rules are the order of the day, just as people used to box before the good old Queensbury Rules were introduced. Muhammed Ali, Mike Tyson, Oscar De La Hoya, Geroge Foreman, Joe Frazier, Evander Holyfield, Ray Leonard, Roberto Duran and Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko have all decided against agreeing to appear in Bare Knuckle mode, so they won't be available as bare knuckle fighters in the pack.
Every other boxer in Fight Night Champion's roster however, will participate in the Bare Knuckles Pack, which introduces online ranked and unranked bare knuckle fights, as well as a bare knuckle online World Championship.
And finally, there will also be the Alternate Weight Class Pack, offering 8 boxers in different weight classes, all for $1. They are Featherweight Manny Pacquiao, Lightweight Manny Pacquiao, Lightweight Oscar De La Hoya, Middleweight Roy Jones Jr, Middleweight Bernard Hopkins, Welterweight Roberto Duran, Middleweight Thomas Hearns and Welterweight Pernell Whitaker.
All three Fight Night Champion DLC packs will be available on March 29th in North America/Japan and March 30th in Europe.
