The Haymaker is Fight Night Champion’s cover athlete

In a recent announcement, EA has confirmed that David Haye i.e. The Haymaker will be the cover athlete for the UK version of Fight Night Champion.

EA also confirmed the substantial list of playable boxers in the finalised version. With current stars David Haye, Manny Pacquiao and the Klistchko brothers sitting along side boxing legends Mike Tyson and Mohammed Ali and, uhhhhh, Butterbean, fans of the pugilistic arts will be able to put together some decidedly epic bouts.

With a revamped control scheme under the name of ‘Full Spectrum Punch Control’ that promises to make Fight Night Champion the most realistic boxing game ever created, expect EA to once again prove themselves the undisputed kings of boxing simulation.
