Out of all the Mike Tyson’s Punch Out character you would think that the real Mike Tyson would have an edge against this virtual boxing opponent. But it turns out the real life boxer can not even keep up with Glass Joe, never mind beat himself on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, while watching the Mike Tyson’s Punch Out video might be funny, you should check out this hilarious video where Tyson rages during a Canadian interview. On the not funny at all side, Tyson claims he was sexually abused by an “old man” when he was only seven years old.
The game that Jimmy Fallon challenged the boxer with was the original Mike Tyson’s Punch Out for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The idea was that the player took on the role of an unknown boxer named Little Mac and fought his or her way up to the final showdown with Mike Tyson. So when the real life Tyson showed upon Jimmy Fallon thought it’d be funny to pit the boxer against his virtual opponent.
“I always thought it would just be an amazing thing if you played Mike Tyson’s Punch Out and tried to fight yourself,” Fallon said. But Tyson already knew what a challenge he’d face with Mike Tyson’s Punch Out.
“I would be killed, man,” Tyson says. “He beats everybody. I’ve only met one little kid around 10 years old who said he beat me.”
But Fallon insisted that the only person capable of beating Mike Tyson’s Punch Out would probably be Tyson himself. “You got something there,” he said. Fallon also assured him that it’d be a “win-win” scenario since no matter what, Mike Tyson wins.
Unfortunately, the real life Mike Tyson found Mike Tyson’s Punch Out to be a greater challenge tan you would think. Tyson was only able to dodge a few jabs from the virtual boxer only to be knocked out via TKO without landing a single blow.
