For the third day of the WePlay Ultimate Fighting League Tekken 7 Season 1, Tekken took a small backstep to the WePlay Ultimate Boxing Night, a pretty interesting and rather entertaining mix of traditional, high impact Boxing and FGC aesthetics. With a total of eight bouts from a mix of European talent. James Banks and part of the Tekken 7 talent sat down throughout the night to flex their commentating muscles with some high-quality boxing.
This is a first for the scene, but the mix of FGC commentators and real-life fights did prove incredibly entertaining. Mostly thanks to the constant comparisons to Tekken with a major and personal favorite joke, of the entire night being a Steve Fox mirror match after another. But there were also many other good analogies, like back-dashes, strings, combos, and of course, footsies.
Where was the Pocket Team Clash?
While the Arena hosted the bouts back in their hotel, the players played out a small round-robin team tournament. The basic rules were random character pick. If you lost a set, your partner tagged in for a Best of One. Finally, the top 2 teams played out on a grand final.
