Mike Tyson Hated 'Punch Out' When It Debuted ... 30 Years Ago!
Thu, 19 Oct 2017
TMZ SPORTS -- Mike Tyson says he was definitely NOT a fan of "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out" when it was first released for Nintendo ... 30 YEARS AGO!
Yep, it was Oct. 18, 1987 when Little Mac began his 8-bit quest for boxing supremacy ... taking on guys like Bald Bull, King Hippo, Don Flamingo, and of course, Iron Mike Tyson.
We spoke with Mike about how the game has become a cultural phenomenon -- and he dropped this bombshell on us ... he hated it when it first came out!!
Tyson was super candid with Harvey Levin during a taping of an upcoming episode of "OBJECTified" (airs Sunday nights at 8 PM EST/5 PM PST on Fox News Channel) ... revealing how he came to love the NES game over time.
Salute to MTPO.
