Steel City Interactive announced nine new additions to the already stacked roster for eSports Boxing Club. In the last fighter announcement, Steel City showcased the best young guns of the game. These roster additions, however, add more legendary talent to the game. To this point, over 200 fighters are in the game, and eSport Boxing Club continues to add more.
eSports Boxing Club New Additions
The ESBC fighter announcements are as follows:
“Ferocious” Fernando Vargas made history by becoming the youngest boxer to win a light-middleweight champion at 21. His fighting style created memorable bouts with greats like Oscar De La Hoya, Shane Mosely, and Ricardo Mayorga.
Davenport, Iowa’s own Michael Nunn, was a two-weight lineal world champion in his heyday, capturing the IBF Middleweight and WBA Super Middleweight titles. He has fought the likes of James Toney, Frank Tate, and Victor Cordoba.
Jamaica’s Mike McCallum possesses one of the greatest nicknames in all of boxing. “The Body Snatcher” has held three world championships in three weight classes. He came to prominence in 1987 after capturing welterweight gold. He defeated Milton McCrory and fellow Hall of Fame member Donald Curry.
Israel Vasquez and Raphael Marquez
You cannot talk about Israel Vasquez without talking about Raphael Marquez. Magnifico and Marquez fought four times between 2007 and 2010. They are 2-2 in those fights and won fight of the year awards for their bouts in 2007 and 2008. You can break the tie with these fighters in ESBC.
“El Matador” stunned the boxing world in 2003 by knocking out Vernon Forrest. Since then, he has put on crazy fights with boxers like Shane Mosley, Miguel Cotto, and the aforementioned Fernando Vargas.
Perhaps the most unorthodox fighter on the roster, Augustus won the IBA welterweight title in 2004. “The Drunken Master” has fought the best of the best in Floyd Mayweather Jr, Mickey Ward, and Francisco Figueroa.
Floyd Mayweather Sr. and Jeff Mayweather
The father and uncle of the great Floyd Mayweather Jr. feature in ESBC as trainers. They are naturally one of the biggest parts of Mayweather Jr’s success as a boxer. However, there are plenty of boxers who have seen world championship success under their tutelage.
As we have previously reported, the early access for ESBC is canceled. However, the next announcement of a launch will be a release date. As always, as soon as we know the release date, we will report it.
