Knockout Kings (PSX) Preview

Publisher: EA Sports

Background Info

Knockout Kings features an impressive array of 38 famous boxers, including exclusive rights for Muhammad Ali, Evander Holyfield, Sugar Ray Leonard and Oscar De La Hoya. Fight enthusiasts can compete as or against these legends.

In addition to the exclusive fighters, other headliners in Knockout Kings include: Lennox Lewis, Floyd Patterson, Sonny Liston, Ken Norton, Shane Mosley, Pernell Whitaker, Roberto Duran, Leon Spinks, Aaron Pryor, Larry Holmes, Marvin Hagler, Alexis Arguello and Ray Mancini.

Sugar Ray Leonard, Oscar De La Hoya and Shane Mosley all worked closely with EA SPORTS as consultants on the game to ensure the authenticity of the fighting action. All three were also motion captured as they executed hundreds of moves that they would use in a real fight. The movements of the boxers were then digitized into the game to bring the cyber boxers to life. For example, Leonard's famous extended chin taunt and bolo punch, and De La Hoya's brutal left hook and lightning fast jabs are all in Knockout Kings .

Famous referee Mills Lane also worked with EA SPORTS on the game and was the motion capture model for the game's official. During the creation of the game, Lane gave EA SPORTS invaluable insights into the world of boxing.
