Earnie Shavers
Alfonso Gomez

Apparantly I just found out.

The names I have are all legit. There's a lot of other boxers that EA has the contact info for, but I'm not allowed to discuss it.

Butterbean told me EA put him in the game for a free console and a free copy of FNC

Holt registered on the forums and EA PM'd asking for photos to put him in.

Berto is close friends with someone at EA Sports

Kevin Kelley stated he signed a contract with EA

Eddie Chambers said EA contacted him and he accepted.

Riddick Bowe has stated he'd be in the game for free

Paul William's manager told someone from this forums (EA) he is in.

Carl Froch has been sporting EA gear lately leading me to believe his inclusion

Fernando Vargas contacted Mike Mahar dunno how that went.

Benitez and Gomez would be nice from Puerto Rico.

Benitez would be raw as hell in a video game, I was watching Hearns-Benitez, and Hearns could barly touch Benitez, if at all. Benitez didnt even throw more than one or two punches up to the fifth round, he was too busy dodging all of Hearns shots, Benitez opened up in the 6th and won every round till the 12th. Didnt finish watching the fight cause its laggy, I was watching and editing for a highlight but too much glitching made it unbareable.

Cafe

This is proof, their is racism against Puerto Rican boxers, not just in a video game, their offically two Cuban boxers in Fight night Champion, and one sorry excuse of a Puerto Rican who didnt win two rounds against Pacman in Fight NighT Champion.

Im always a supporter of the game, but they really need to get the fresh fighters in there.

Bradley & Dawson are in the game. But listen to the producers, you can't really blame EA. Plus the good news is there will be up to 100 CAB's with a better CAB system, so we'll be able to download and make our own Ward, Martinez, etc.

Also, I'm sure Khan will be in the game announced later.

Here is EA producer on roster:

It's that time of year again. You win some, you lose some.

I'm not happy about it either. This is what Fight Night and KO Kings has gone through every year and it's never easy. Contracts are signed with fighters for a certain period of time and when they expire, we can't be certain we'll be able to reach another agreement with any of them.

- Some boxers were signed to deals over 3 years ago when things were pretty different, financially-speaking.

- All of the boxers that we lost were contacted, some of them several times by myself personally.

- I'm not kidding when I say this, sometimes we just don't hear back. Even from people we worked with previously.

- I personally had communications with one boxer - and his three different managers - over the course of 6 months.

- Arturo Gatti died under very suspicious circumstances. Sorry that we weren't able to re-do that contract in the wake of that. We would have signed him for an extra 2 years way back if we had known he was going to die.

- Some guys we had to drop because of a lawsuit last year, you might recall.

- Sometimes we have have verbal agreements in place with guys we really want and because of time-pressures we spend thousands of dollars making them. Only to have them make further demands, attempt to renegotiate, or simply fail to send us signed paperwork. So poof! They're off the roster and we just burned that money. I can tell you how much Mike looooooves that.

- Some guys just have unrealistic demands (mayweather).

Now, I know you probably don't care about this. The game doesn't have some of the guys you want, end of story. But like I've been saying for years, its not like boxing is chock-full of stand-up guys accustomed to a strict code of business ethics - nor is it populated by an abundance of athletes with a realistic perception of their brand value and/or mainstream appeal.

NOTE: Some guys are absolutely great. Very professional and very helpful.

All I'm saying is, we try our best and we didn't make the business of professional boxing an absolute clusterf**.

But they got Erislandy Lara, so you don't think they wanted Rigondeaux? I'm willing to bet they would have preferred Rigo over Lara...

Now, I know you probably don't care about this. The game doesn't have some of the guys you want, end of story. But like I've been saying for years, its not like boxing is chock-full of stand-up guys accustomed to a strict code of business ethics - nor is it populated by an abundance of athletes with a realistic perception of their brand value and/or mainstream appeal.

NOTE: Some guys are absolutely great. Very professional and very helpful.

All I'm saying is, we try our best and we didn't make the business of professional boxing an absolute clusterf**.

ugh this is the only aspect of boxing i hate

the greed and selfishness

and i bet that 90% of the fighters would be in this game for chump change. Its the dumb **** managers and associates that wanna get paid so their guy can be in the game

makes me ****ing sick

the only sport where the establishment doesnt give a **** about fans

Roy Jones will be at middleweight at this game, same with hopkins and jermain taylor.

I really think there's going to be some good DLC, amir khan said he's in the game and some others as well.

I was reading on the forums that Ken Norton's manager, of all people, was demanding crazy ammounts for him to be in the game and he represents several other guys as well and threatened to sue if any of those named guys were in the game. So yeah, there unfortunately is a lot of stupid crap like that in boxing.

Like wtf is ken norton doing at this point to where he's like, "nah man, **** that video game unless they pay me more!"

Stupid managers and ****.

I'm sure most all boxers would love to be in the game with exception to floyd since he'd have to fight pacquiao.

i can see the older fighters demanding more makes this filled with irony

there money channels have dried up so i can see why they would want heavy payment.

but the new guys have sponsors, fights, and other means of income still so you would think they would jump at the chance to get paid for PROMOTION

which is not easy to come by in the boxing game

if i was a fringe fighter i would be like hey bro put me in the game for free!

its just amazing to me that people dont understand what video games offer in terms of promotion

for instance Black Ops

i bet Rolling Stones sales sky rocketed thanks to them using "No Shelter" in the promo's

if you get paid say 500,000 to 1 mill to be in a game because you a big fighter

it will do unmeasurable good for your fan base

hell a lot of friends i have only know the fighters in Fight Night games....and if they are a current fighter then when they hear their name in a fight line up they are like "oh **** i gotta watch, i play with that guy on fight night!"

people dont understand that these video games are probably the best alternative medium to get you out there. God knows you gotta do something extraordinary to get on ESPN, in a newspaper, or magazine.

take what you can get.....its why boxing is dead man....they want to much money to get a name out there....just one big money grab

1. Im not defending EA im just stating the facts of the situation that your biased judgment is clouding you must not understand how the boxing world works.

2. Of course they care about the consumer dip**** they wont ever sell these games if they didnt. In all honesty i feel like EA has sometimes catered to the "casual" consumer too much and has alienated boxing truists. But that is not because of the fighter selection but gameplay. Some things are not in their grasp even though you would like to think so

Floyd demands crazy amounts of money and Trinidad, as I explained, is managed by Don King, who if you don't know has his own boxing game called Prizefighter. Some of the guys in that game are contracted exclusively in that game including: Luis Collazo and Daniel Santos, who are, yep, puerto rican.

Remember when Mike Tyson was NEVER in any boxing games besides Mike Tyson's punchout? That was because he was managed by Don King and King would demand crazy ***** as well. If you have a problem with no Tito, twitter don king.

Rican411, you need to calm down because no one is being racist or intentionally leaving certain boxers out because of their race. A couple of guys including myself reached out to a lot of boxers. I talked to them through email and gave them the Fight Night producer's email information.

Brizzo said, many of the boxers didn't get their contracts back to him or they never returned phone calls. The Fight Night Franchise has the smallest budget out of all their sports franchises. So, it's hard to negotiate with boxers wanting a lot of money.

i dont have anything against the old timers at all. it just seems to me a game that comes out every couple of years should throw some of the new names in there...but of course like Brizzo stated....cant always get who you want, which is fine.

but like i said before i have friends who know boxers from only these games. Friends that dont necessarily watch boxing on a regular basis but play these games and find a fighters style they like...then they wind up liking them in real life because they feel like they have some kind of connection with them. So it really baffles me that it is so hard for the new guys to get on here when they are getting PAID for advertisement and publicity

this game hits a broader demographic than just fight fans. These olders guys, for the idle fan, are not always recognizable with the exception of the obvious few. So when a casual fan looks at the fighter list they are like.........who the **** is this????

look at this website for instance

most of these kids on here only know fighters in the last 10-20 years.....that is really the main demographic EA is shooting for. So it is great to have these classic matchups of classic fighters......the customer base is more inclined to current generation talent and current fighter matchups.

and i mean we have all seen the REAL fights between Ali and Frazier, Hagler and Hearns, etc. so there isnt much of a thrill in having these guys fight virtually. The beauty is in the potential matchups and the impossible matchups. EA did a good job of advertising this the last time around with Tyson-Ali but i think it kind of skewed their development because of their push to overhaul the graphics and to get Tyson.

To me where this game lives and dies is in the Legacy Mode....if it doesnt produce this year than its gonna flop....for me of course

the online is "meh"...i like playing online but its usually more frustrating than it is fun...people win by spamming and not actually boxing...its frustrating losing a match when you are fighting a textbook strategy but the guy you are fighting is just finding game exploits

and the exhibition mode is fun if you are fighting a friend at the house but not much for single player




just my two cents

:D
