Well, it's a blatant, shameless copy of Super Punch-Out, going on the video above. Not even a "rip-off," mind you, a copy. Anyone who's played the SNES game will see it immediately.

While Pocket Boxer doesn't shy away from its arcade inspirations, every asset in the game was created from scratch by professionals, including the fresnel shaded player, 3d environment, opponent sprites/portraits, ring girl, referee, sound effects, voices effects, music (for title defense mode). A lot of work went into refining the touch controls, physics, and AI, and I'm quite pleased with how it came out. The game's loaded with stat tracking, achievements, and twists. I wouldn't have bothered making this game if there was a game already in the AppStore that played like this. If I make back the money I had to spend getting the assets produced, I'll be happy as a clam.

I'll PM a promo code to the first five people that post here and name something different in the SNES game and Pocket Boxer, based on the promo video.

I'll also gladly PM a promo code to any legitimate reviewer that is a fan of this type of boxing game.

As for any TA folk that have already purchased the game, I'll send an itunes gift certificate to the first person that can prove that they've:
1) completed the "Road to the Title"
2) earned at least one "lightning bolt" for quick KOs of each opponent
3) completed the Title Defense circuit

Your game doesn't have a main character named Little Mac.

If that difference doesn't suffice.. Challenger comes up as green, which is different than the SNES version.
