Muhammad Ali Heavyweight Boxing is a boxing video game that was developed by Park Place Productions and published by Virgin Interactive in 1992. It was released for the Mega Drive/Genesis console.
The game features Muhammad Ali and nine fictional heavyweight boxers. The game is presented using a mixture of 2D sprites and a 3D ring which allows boxers to move 360 degrees about the ring.
In career mode, the player can choose to fight as any of the game's ten boxers. The selected boxer starts at rank ten in the heavyweight division, and fights their way through all the others in order.
During fights, available punches to be thrown include jabs, hooks, crosses and uppercuts. In simulation mode it is possible to choose to throw any type of punch with either hand, whereas in arcade mode the player chooses which type of punch to throw and the AI determines which of the boxer's fists is the most appropriate to throw it. Defensive maneuvers include blocking and clinching. The more punches a boxer throws, the less damage his punches inflict.
The game can be played in either arcade or simulation mode. Many in-game features are customizable, including round length, number of rounds, and the length of time a boxer must be on the canvas to be classed as knocked out.
