If Nintendo can have Mike Tyson for their TV games console system, then Amstrad can have Frank Bruno on their system.  Both games are based on Nintendo’s Punch-Out! arcade, and that’s were the similarities end.

Graphically it looks like a four colour mode 1 spectrum port.  Certainly disappointing given the level of detail in most of Elite’s fair for the CPC.

Game play, diabolical.  I found the game unplayable using a joystick.  And the keys were only marginally better.  I was never certain I was actually landing any punches, blocking seemed ineffectual, and the uppercut never worked.

Still I must have been doing something right as my score was increasing.
