A new boxing management game app that gives gamers and boxing fans the chance to walk in the shoes of the world’s leading trainers and promoters, has launched exclusively on the App Store today.
Boxing Manager challenges players to enter a virtual universe where they select and train a stable of boxers in their very own gym and work their way through the ranks in pursuit of winning world titles.
The new release follows on from the highly acclaimed and best-selling World Title Boxing Manager, which has achieved over 80,000 paid downloads and been a top 10 rated game on the Apple Store in the UK for the past two years, with an average rating of 4.4 stars from almost 7,000 reviews.
Working exclusively on iPhone and iPad, Boxing Manager has been developed with more than two years of extensive user feedback to provide the most detailed and authentic boxing management game ever created.
Across weight divisions from Flyweight to Heavyweight, Boxing Manager allows users to build gyms, sign fighters, develop skills, hire trainers, define tailored training plans, identify opponents and manage your fighters corner and strategy on fight night.
The creator of the series, Alex Deacon, is a product designer expert and previously Sports Director at Betfair. Fusing his lifelong passion for boxing and his experience of being part of the team that created Championship Manager 2 and 3 in the mid 1990’s, the origins of Boxing Manger were conceived and designed during this period.
Commenting on the launch of the new Boxing Manager app, Alex Deacon, said: “Boxing Manager has been created by a boxing fan for boxing fans. The game has been built on years of experience and extensive player feedback, which has enabled us to generate a gaming experience that both boxing purists and the wider gaming community can enjoy. Boxing Manager provides a unique virtual boxing universe – generated in real-time – it is now the most detailed, realist and authentic boxing management simulator game on the market.
“The goal has always been to produce the ultimate boxing management experience and build a simulator series for boxing that rivals the quality and user experience of similar style games for other sports. This is boxing’s equivalent of the Football Manager series. It’s the game fight fans, and simulation gamers, have been waiting for”, he adds.
