  1. Knockout Kings 2001 had all the potential to strike a telling blow to all its competitors, but with below average gameplay, spending your hard-earned cash on this will hurt more than a Tyson uppercut.
  2. If you're a die-hard boxing fan, you'll appreciate the extended Career mode and boxer-specific fighting styles. Unfortunately, you won't appreciate the less-than-optimal frame rate.
  3. The game's lack of speed and overwhelming number of moves make it less of a draw for non-fans, but fans will be thoroughly floored.
