Yeah, I know he’s been talked about being on a game and things like that but I’m not sure, because I don’t know if they can afford him. He might want a billion dollars,” said Jeff Mayweather about ‘Pretty Boy’ featuring on the ESBC game.

It gave fans a glimpse into its various mechanics, a control system for evasion, combat, and combinations, dodging, weaving, blocking, and slips. Updates from the developers have generated quite the pre-launch interest in the game. While the release has been delayed indefinitely, boxing fans are now looking forward to getting a first-hand feel of the video game.
