Boxing (also known as Punch-Out!! in the United States and Europe) is a Game & Watch game that is featured in Game & Watch Gallery 4. The original Game & Watch version was released on July 31, 1984. The "Modern" version of the game features Luigi as a playable character. This minigame has three opponents: a Wiggler, a Big Boo, and Waluigi. Luigi has to beat all his opponents. After that, he has to repeat the fighting order along with winning a coin, a trophy, or a Championship Belt. As the player advances in the game, the enemies get more difficult to defeat.
Unlike the Classic version, music is featured.
If the player selects the game yet waits several seconds, a humorous sequence will play where several Waluigis pop up from the floor, and Big Boo throws his boxing glove Boo at them in a similar manner to a bowling ball, and is overjoyed at getting a strike.
It is also one of the games in the gallery in the original Game & Watch Gallery.
In Classic Mode, two boxers start with 50 points. The boxers also start with a maximum of five hit points. For each hit a boxer takes, he loses one point. If pushed back, that boxer loses three points. If KO'd, the boxer loses four points, and an additional point is deducted for each TKO the boxer gets (−6 points if KO'd three times).
If a boxer has zero points, he gets pushed back very easily, and if KO'd with zero points, the boxer loses the match. If the human player boxer loses a match in a one-player game, a Game Over occurs.
If a round takes too long, a brief break occurs, and the match resumes.
In Game & Watch Gallery 4, one star is earned for every three wins.
