They should really put Mike Tyson's Punch out on instead in my opinion. Mr. Dream was okay and all, but nothing can replace Tyson in this game

Given Nintendo's using the non-Tyson game on the Wii, they're not going to license Tyson's likeness again.

Hmm... To think, If Tyson never bit off that guy's ear, he might have still been sponsored in Nintendo games today.
Samus vs. Tyson? You know I'd love to see that...

DemonFowl That's a popular misconception, that they removed him for reasons of publicity. Really, his contract just ran out. Ninteno wanted to run some more copies of Punch-Out!! a few years later, and they would've had to re-sign Tyson to keep him in.

By that point, people already knew it was an awesome game, so they didn't need celebrity endorsement to sell it. xD Tyson being bat-shit crazy might have been a contributing factor to not getting him back, but it wasn't the cause.

SPAZwazza Well well, learn something everyday, I suppose.
Everyone I knew always told me it was because of the ear incident, but I guess that makes sense too.
