Mike Tyson Takes On His Nintendo NES Début Punch Out!!

Mike-Tyson-Punch-OutIt's common knowledge that the icon behind Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! is terrible at his own game, but how bad is anyone's guess. While none of us would ever dare face up to him in the ring, recent footage of Tyson himself taking on his 8-bit knockout proves that if we're stronger (digitally) than a heavyweight champion.

FOX Sports recently lured Mike Tyson into the studio to sit down and tackle his very own video game a decade and a half after its initial release. Needless to say much hilarity ensues following Tyson's inability to floor his feeble opponent, Glass Joe.

The video of this very battle has recently been uploaded to YouTube showcasing the boxing champion fumble at the hands of his fictional rival. Retro gamers, could you beat Mike Tyson at Punch Out!!?
