I *finally* TKOed him last night, as I just realized that it's almost always an instant knockdown when you dodge his huge uppercut, stun punch him four times, THEN star punch. I would dodge, stun punch once, then star, which doesn't do a lot of damage.
I'm currently doing Mac's Last Stand mode. I've beaten about 12 opponents, including Donkey Kong. I've read that it just goes on forever until you loose three times, than Champion Mode or something like that opens up. That sucks...cause that means you HAVE to loose in order to open up the final mode, which means you can't have a perfect record!
Did anyone else have as much trouble on the Title Defense Bald Bull fight as I did? I mean...it probably took me over 30 tries to finally beat him. He's by far the hardest guy in the game, which is ironic cause the Contender Mode Bald Bull fight was extremely easy...I TKO'd him in the first round, on my very first try.

I just beat Donkey Kong for the first time (who was surprisingly easy--I beat him on maybe my fifth try), so now I'e beaten everyone. The person I had the most trouble with was far and away Title Defense Bald Bull, then non-TD Great Tiger (I had no real trouble with TD Great Tiger, for whatever reason). Both TD Super Macho Man and Mr. Sandman were kind of hard but really just cheap--I'd knock them down three or four times over two rounds barely getting hit, and then get four punches in a row, get knocked down twice, and stay down for good. Those two never seemed that hard--even from the first time I fought them I'd be able to knock them down a couple of times.
Easiest Title Defense bout, not counting Glass Joe, was Aran Ryan, who I beat in the first round on my second try.
Disco Kid was also stupidly easy. I lost to TD Kaiser and Hondo, but not once to Disco Kid.Easiest Title Defense bout, not counting Glass Joe, was Aran Ryan, who I beat in the first round on my second try.
I can't beat Sandman.... he's sooooo difficult....
Was Glass Joe always french? I always thought/assumed he was american.
No wonder he goes down so quickly.
And why didn't they name him Glass Jaques to fit along with the other stereotyped boxers?

Bump. Picked this game up over the weekend. Yeah, I said I wasn't going to. Well, I lied.
I love the challenge this game provides, considering I can STILL blow through Super Punch-Out like nothing. Still there is the reminder that "challenge" is a relative term when comparing video games released now to 20 years ago....I'm currently in the pattern of new opponent, lose, go to exhibition, knock hologram around until patterns are memorized, go back to career, win. Eh.
Blew through contender mode in almost one sitting, slowly working through title defense now. I can't in good conscience call this a great game, the gameplay is lacking, but the presentation is A+. I've laughed out loud at a few of Doc's quotes, and the characters speaking in their native tongues is a nice touch that I wish was in more games.
