Punch-Out was released in the United States as Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! There is a very interesting story about how Mike Tyson’s name was used for the game. Nintendo America’s founder and president Arakawa attended Mike Tyson’s boxing match. He was so amazed by the athlete’s “power and skill” that he decided that they should use his name in the game. 

It is rumoured that Mike Tyson was paid $50,000 for a three years contract. This would turn out to be a great deal for Nintendo. As Mike Tyson defeated Trevor Berbick and won the World Boxing Council heavyweight championship the profits of the game skyrocketed. After the contract expired, Nintendo decided not to renew it as the game had gained a sufficient fan following.

Get Back Up With Extra Health

When knocked down, you can press A and B repeatedly to try and get back up. Normally when you do this, you’ll only have some of your health. However, if you do this so that you get up when the referee’s count is at a certain number, you’ll instead get back up with more health!

In the Minor Circuit, get up on an even number. You get extra (but not all) your health.

In the Major Circuit, get up on 7, 8, or 9. You get extra health, or full health if you fight King Hippo.

In the World Circuit, get up on 9. You get extra health, or full health on Mr Sandman and Mr Macho Man. (If you get up on 8 though, you actually get less, so beware!)

When fighting Mike Tyson, get up on 9. You will usually get full health, except for your third time doing this (you still get more than normal though).
