Grab your NES controllers! The Mayweather v. Pacquiao fight has been recreated as the classic video game, ‘Punch-Out!’ If the ‘Fight Of The Century’ left you disappointed, maybe this new hilarious video will help you laugh it off.
For some, it was a classic bout between two of the greatest boxers in history. For others, it was sort of meh. Whatever you thought about the fight between Floyd Mayweather, 38, and Manny Pacquiao, 36, you’ll end up laughing while watching their clash recreated in the old school Nintendo game, Punch-Out!
Mayweather & Pacquiao Punch-Out: Funny Video Game Parody Of The Fight
Noober Goober Gaming uploaded the video to their YouTube channel on May 2, right before the fight actually happened, reports the Washington Post. Though they got a few things wrong, it’s amazing how accurate their prediction turned out to be!
In the mock-up of Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!, Floyd is the final boss instead of Iron Mike. Instead of little Mac, it’s “Little Pac.” And instead of having to fight your way through such boxers like Glass Joe, Soda Popiski and Bald Bull, you just have to agree to Floyd’s long list of demands! If you say no — GAME OVER.
Once the fight starts, the video shows Manny throwing a ton of punches while Floyd only hugs his opponent. In reality, Floyd landed more clean shots in the fight, ultimately winning the bout with an unanimous decision.
However, the video is eerie in predicting how many fans thought that the so-called “Fight of the Century” was dull and not worth the $100 price tag!
Though the showdown between Mayweather and Pacquiao might have been a bummer, there was one part that everyone agreed was impressive: Beyonce and Jay Z! The “Couple of the Century” was on hand for the fight and Beyonce was looking FIERCE. Some even said that Beyonce’s outfit was better than the actual fight!
What do you think about the video, HollywoodLifers? Do you think they got it right? More importantly, would you want to play Floyd Mayweather’s Punch Out?
