Fight Night Champion champions the Champions mode

As much as the sweet science interests me on an intellectual level, I haven't spent more than a few minutes with any boxing game which wasn't made by Nintendo. So I completely missed the memo on Fight Night Champion and its story-based "Champion Mode." The above video lays out some of the characters and circumstances rising star middleweight Andre Bishop has in his path to glory.

I'm genuinely interested in playing this game now, where I would have completely dismissed it as I have so many other Fight Night games. This right here is how you hook us non-Sports players. Give us a little human drama and we're suckers.
