From the Publisher's web site:

Styles Make Fights

If you are a boxing fan, you have undoubtedly heard that saying, which serves as the foundation of this game. There is a great deal of truth in those three words and Legends of Boxing is designed to bring that fistic chemistry to life.

Designer's Notes

One aspect that I wanted to capture in this boxing simulation was a feel for a fighter's style - his tendencies from round to round. With Legends of Boxing, I wanted fighter's styles to merge into certain types of action. That is the single biggest difference in this game and any that have come before it. The fighter's strategies, or modes, are an integral part of a his ratings in this game, reflecting his tendency to be defensive, fight from the outside, brawl on the inside, or "walk down" and pressure his opponent.

I have played many hundreds of bouts with LOB since 2000 and I still enjoy it as much today as any other sports game I own. Perhaps even better, is that I have enjoyed sharing my hobby with hundreds of other gamers all over the world.

Legends of Boxing is available free via download as my expression of gratitude to the sports gaming community.

More Information Edit | History

This game is still supported and has been revised in the past couple years.

The 2010 version was refined with minor adjustments to the charts - particularly the TKO, Knockdown, and Cut charts. A "basic" version was also offered last year in an attempt to streamline the opposed roll mechanics of the game, but this year the game was revised to use Fast-Action Cards (FACs) which was a nice improvement to the flow of the action. Old Title Bout players will appreciate this.

The website has been updated with the latest version which includes a PDF file of the FAC deck. Hopefully later in the year, there will be an updated workbook of fighter ratings.

Thank you to whoever added my game to Board Game Geek! Very cool.
