One of the greatest things I’ve seen all week is Mike Tyson playing his signature video game, Punch Out!, for the first time ever. In 2013.

It’s a little hard to believe that this might be the first time he ever picked up the Nintendo controller with Mike Tyson’s Punch Out! in the console, but he had a lot of other things on his schedule back in the day… and then the issues surrounding the publisher rebranding the game after Tyson’s legal troubles, well that probably put a sour taste in his mouth towards the game at the time, too.

Regardless of whether this video from FOX Sports is actually his first time or not, it’s still entertaining. Watch as he struggles with Glass Joe, and talks a little smack along the way.

You’re welcome.

Now if only we could get a video of him playing the version on the Wii. I bet he could sling a nunchuk and Wii-mote like nobody’s business. Might break a TV and the wall behind it, though.
