Watch Mike Tyson Play Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!

Adrienne Crezo

It has been 26 years since Nintendo released Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! and kids were introduced to the joy of battling characters like Soda Popinski (formerly Vodka Drunkenski) and Don Flamenco in the comfort of their own homes. But it seems the game's eponymous champion wasn't interested in partaking in his own product, because he played the game for the first time ever just a couple of days ago.
