George Foreman's KO Boxing is a 1993 boxing video game developed by Beam Software on the Sega Mega Drive. A version was developed on the Sega Game Gear and Sega Master System but was basically a repackaged version of Heavyweight Champ by Sims.

The Mega Drive (and SNES) version was originally supposed to feature digitized boxers, but near the end of development, one of the graphic artists demanded that the sprites were hand-drawn.

Gameplay

In the Mega Drive version the player takes on the role of George Foreman who must defeat other boxers to become the heavyweight champion. The gameplay takes place from a behind the character perspective.
