Hello, everyone, and welcome to another edition of The Great Retro Quiz!, the weekly trivia challenge that puts your knowledge of retro games to the test. I am your host, Chad Concelmo, and, as always, this week’s post is sponsored by RetroforceGO!. Remember, for every person that listens to Retroforce or participates in this quiz, an abandoned puppy gets adopted.

This week’s quiz is all about Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! for the Nintendo Entertainment System. This is one of my favorite games of all time and the addictive gameplay stills holds up today. In fact, I just got done playing it and have officially decided that King Hippo is one of the most awesome creations, well, ever. Are you as big a fan of the game as I am? Take the quiz to find out!

Just leave your answers in the comments and check my community blog tomorrow (3/20) to see how many you got right.

Do it for the puppies! Good luck!
