James 'Buster' Douglas Knockout Boxing for Genesis was released on June 1, 1990 in North America.
This port of Taito's "Final Blow
" features then-World Heavyweight Champion James 'Buster' Douglas. The game was released immediately after his historic victory over 'Iron' Mike Tyson in Tokyo, Japan. The game was one of the key games used to market the console as part of the 'Genesis Does What Nintendon't' Campaign, particularly since Nintendo used Mike Tyson for its "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!
" video game.
This game was re-released in 1992 as a Sega Classics edition.
