One of the biggest boxers in the world — literally and figuratively — is making his way to Esports Boxing Club (ESBC). During it’s latest update video, it was revealed that British heavyweight Tyson Fury will be a part of the ESBC roster at launch.
The announcement was made by Todd Grisham, and featured a fully rendered look at Fury’s in-game character model.
Fury, also known as “The Gypsy King” is the current WBC World Heavyweight Champion, Lineal World Heavyweight Champion, and Ring Magazine World Heavyweight Champion. It was rumored that his deal with EA Sports to be in EA Sporrts UFC 4 was an exclusive license, but that is clearly not the case.
In the real world of boxing, he is currently scheduled for a rematch against Deontay Wilder in October to defend his WBC title. With Fury now on board, ESBC continues to boast one of the deepest rosters in boxing video game history with the likes of Canelo Alvarez, Muhammad Ali, Joe Louis, Oleksandr Usyk, and more.
ESBC is currently in development for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X. The game will feature some of the biggest names in boxing history ranging from legends to current stars. In addition to fighters, it will feature various real-life venues, deep customization options, and a personalized career mode.
