Petition For A Fight Night Champion Sequel Surpasses 10,000 Signatures

Petition For A Fight Night Champion Sequel Surpasses 10,000 Signatures

A boxing fan's petition calling for EA Sports to make a sequel to Fight Night Champion has passed 10,000 signatures -- and continues to pick up new signees two years after it was set up.

The fan-favourite Fight Night Champion was the last entry in the beloved boxing franchise and was released on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and iOS devices in 2011.

And the petition, which was set up by New Boxing Game, has amassed 10,722 signatures out of its 15,000 target at the time of this writing.

The petition's description on Change.org reads: "There is no doubt about it. Boxing IS on the rise again.

"The excitement and entertainment the sport brings to the masses is unquestionably breathtaking.

"With Anthony Joshuas [sic] stoppage win over Wladimir Klitschko in a heavyweight clash that can only be described as a modern classic and the announcement of Canelo Alvarez vs Gennady Golovikin (due to fight later on this year) which is predicted to be an immense showdown, boxing IS booming.

"It is therefore a request that I, along with many other boxing fans around the world believe there should be another boxing game such as the highly rated Fight Night series.

"It would mean a great deal to the boxing community as well as many casual fans to be given an opportunity to relive the great moments from fighters, old and new, all over again."

American boxer Claressa Shields excited boxing fans in August when she suggested that the Fight Night franchise could make a stunning return on PlayStation 4.

But she would later come out to clarify that she would be involved in Round4Round Boxing and not the Fight Night franchise.

Anthony Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, also admitted in 2018 that he wants EA Sports to bring the boxing series back.
