Electronic Arts has revealed the cover for its upcoming boxing title, Fight Night Round 4, as voted by fans.
It features legends Muhammad Ali and Mike Tyson taking swings at each other, but missing. Punches almost connect, but not quite. Ali appears to hit a bag of water just out of frame, but certainly not Iron Mike. Because of this, Tyson can still say nice things about Ali without looking like a total wimp.
“I’m honored to be on the cover of Fight Night Round 4 with Ali. He was a special champ, and I have the highest respect for him as a person and a fighter,” he says.
EA recently had a community event showing off the Fight Night Round 4 goods, so we should start to hear a ton of info about the game soon. As a fan of the previous games, I’m a bit concerned that a different studio has its hands on the controls (former dev EA Chicago is no more). But I’m still optimistic, because that’s just the kind of guy I am.
