When the Mike Tyson version of the game was pulled from shelves, he was replaced by a new final boss character called Mr. Dream. Mr. Dream was EXACTLY the same as Tyson, they just pallet-swapped his skin to make him look white. See more »

Better than Pro Wrestling
24 July 2001 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

OK, so you have Kid Dynamite from the 80s as the ultimate Bout. What is better is the cast you have to go through to get there:

Glass Joe Von Kaiser Piston Honda (twice) Don Flamenco (twice) King Hippo Great Tiger Bald Bull (twice) Soda Popinski Mr. Sandman Super Macho Man Kid Dynamite

All of these are capable contenders with some super tough moves. They all have their own little tricks to try to knock Little Mac over. Of course, in the arcade, Mac was a green graph and in this game you (Mac) have on green shorts and a black wife-beater.

Mac should always listen to his manager, the colorful Doc Brown, who always has good advice such as "join the nintendo fun club today, mac".

Also, be sure to utilize star punches at key times, like when an enemy is stunned or just rises from the canvas. Try not to throw too many punches or you will get fatigued and lose heart power. Also, always counter punch after dodging.

The code to go straight to Tyson is: 007-373-5963 Use this only after a thorough training episode that encompasses all other enemies. If you can not beat everyone else very easily, you will have no chance against N. Tyson. Good luck and remember to join the Nintendo fun club ASAP!!!
