Toughman Contest is a boxing game released by Electronic Arts for the Sega Mega Drive and Sega 32X. It's based on the amateur boxing competition of the same name.
Toughman Contest is a boxing game played from the first person, in a style similar to Nintendo's Punch Out!! arcade games.
While the content is the same, Toughman Contest on the 32X has entirely re-designed backgrounds to take advantage of the wider colour palette of the system. It also offers slightly higher quality speech samples than its Mega Drive counterpart.
