Codemasters heeft Mike Tysons naam en gezicht("likeness") ingekocht om er een box-spel omheen te brouwen.
Het hele persbericht: Codemasters announced today that have licensed the name and likeness of Heavyweight contender and former champ Mike Tyson for an upcoming boxing title called Mike Tyson Boxing. The game is scheduled in May 2000 for both the PC and the PlayStation. The license is exclusive and worldwide and extends to all gaming platforms. Tyson will fight next in the United Kingdom, coincidentally where Codemasters is based. The January 29 bout in Manchester, England will pit Tyson against Julius Francis in the former champ's first fight in Great Britain. Representatives of the Tyson camp fully expect the Francis bout to be a stepping-stone toward the inevitable regaining of the heavyweight crown. The new game will include a career management and training mode, as well as a highly advanced character animation system.
