Game description: Tape up your hands, pull on your gloves and get ready to go toe-to-toe with some of the most accomplished boxers you're ever likely to meet. Victorious Boxers places you directly in the ring as Ippo Makunouchi on his quest to become the champion. But first you must prove to the coach that you're worth training!
The game features a mix of simulation and arcade style boxing. The storyline, which unfolds in the story mode, takes place in six linear segments that originally overlapped in the manga. The game's fights mirrored the fights from the manga series. The beginning of the game focuses on Ippo Makunouchi's rise to the Japanese Featherweight championship, and later switches to Ippo's fellow gym mates' careers.
