    Ready 2 Rumble Boxing Round 2 is the sequel to Ready 2 Rumble Boxing.

    Round 2 builds on its prequel, and features bizarre additions to its character roster, including Shaquille O'Neal and Michael Jackson. The game also features "Mr. President" and "First Lady", based on the then president of the United States, Bill Clinton and first lady, Hillary Clinton, respectively.
