eSports Boxing Club Reveals 20+ New Fighters

This afternoon, Steel City Interactive dropped the first episode of it’s Fighter Announcement Show. The trailer is the first major announcement for eSports Boxing Club since mid-February. Those were roster announcements, too. In February the developer announced six legendary boxers who will be playable in eSports Boxing Club. Today’s announcement tops that, revealing a whopping 25 new eSports Boxing Club fighters.

The announcement show is hosted by former Friday Night Fights host Todd Grisham. For me, Grisham, who also serves as Vice President of business acquisitions for ESBC, is a perfect choice to be the voice of the game. The excitement he brings to the reveal trailer alone is proof. As he announces new fighters from the Fight Capitol of the World, Las Vegas, he makes the green screen cool.

The developers take every opportunity to talk about ESBC’s 100+ fighter roster. Considering the game’s delays, some fans have expressed doubts. Even Sergio Mora expressed his doubts. “When you first told me about this,” Mora jokes, “I thought ‘listen man, this is gonna be your Fyre Festival.” Today, Steel City decided to show, not tell. The first Announcement Show reveals 25 of the game’s licensed boxers. The exhaustive list includes WBO Welterweight World Champion Terence Crawford, Unified Cruiserweight Champion Oleksandr Usyk, and Roy Jones Jr., one of the greatest to ever do it. They even showed a little range with the addition of Eric “Butterbean” Esch. You can find the full list of announced fighters below.

Latest Fighters Coming to eSports Boxing Club

  • Terence “Bud” Crawford
  • Caleb Plant
  • Oscar Valdez Jr.

Unsatisfied with today’s featured fighters, Grisham listed off even more confirmed boxers as the trailer faded. The names I could make out include Mexican legend, Israel Vazquez, and Diego Pacheco.

Even More Announcements Coming Soon

So, what comes next for eSports Boxing Club? Grisham teased the next two big trailers dropping for eSports Boxing Club. Next week, Steel City Interactive will share the first ESBC game play trailer on social media. Two weeks from now, Grisham will be back with the second episode of ESBC‘s Fighter Announcement Show. Episode 2 will include fighters from the game’s female roster, as well as trainers and cut men.
