2K Sports today shipped Don King Presents: Prizefighter for the Xbox 360. The game was developed by the studio that created Rocky Legends.
If you missed it, you should read our interview with Don King. Seriously, the guy’s a promoter to the core — and somewhat eccentric, in case you didn’t know.
Don King Presents: Prizefighter casts players in the role of a talented-but-unknown boxer fighting his way into the international spotlight while attempting to claim the world championship. The storyline challenges players to balance their rigorous training regimen with the temptations of wealth and stardom, unfolding in a live-action, sports-documentary style that features real-life legends and current stars from the world of boxing.
Among the boxers included are Samuel Peter, Joe Calzaghe, Kelly Pavlik, Ricardo Mayorga, Nate Campbell, Juan Diaz, Ken Norton, Larry Holmes, Andrew Golota, and (of course) Don King, among others.
Heather Vandeven, the reigning 2007 Penthouse Pet of the Year, and popular video vixen Bria Myles also star in the documentary and act as temptations for boxers throughout their careers.
