One floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee; the other bites your damned ear right off. Seems fans voting at AliorTyson.com couldn't decide, so EA decided to use both athletes for the cover to Fight Night Round 4. Both boxers appear in the game, with the inclusion of Tyson marking his first video game appearance in nearly a decade.
"I'm honored to be on the cover of Fight Night Round 4 with Ali. He was a special champ, and I have the highest respect for him as a person and a fighter," said Tyson. "People always ask me if I think I would have beaten Ali if I had the chance to fight him when we were both in our prime. Now you can figure it out for yourselves. Fight Night puts you right in that ring and gives you the gloves to settle the score."
I'm of the opinion that Tyson has no business sharing the cover of anything with a true legend like Ali, and I'm not afraid to say it right to his face...over the internet, where he doesn't know where to find me.
Fight Night Round 4 is due out this summer on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
