There has been a long-running campaign among followers of combat sports and gamers to force the return of console boxing. There have been some memorable titles over the years, the fight game responsible for classics, including Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out and the world-famous Knockout Kings. But fans have been left without interest for too long now, missing out on the drama, excitement, and competitiveness of playing a boxing game against friends or online, taking on opponents from far and wide.
While the boxing game scene has been flat, the sport of professional boxing has been thriving. With the likes of Tyson Fury, Anthony Joshua, and Oleksandr Usyk, the heavyweight division is more exciting today than it has been in a generation. The lighter weights also boast talents, such as Saul Alvarez, Dmitri Bivol, and Terence Crawford.
These names compete live on major TV stations and at sold-out arenas. The most trusted online sportsbooks even allow fight fans to make predictions and place bets on the outcome. So, why have we waited so long on a decent boxing game to re-emerge? There’s obviously global interest in the sport and a desire to play a serious boxing game.

As the old saying goes, good things come to those who wait. Will that be the case with “Undisputed”?

Undisputed is the name of the new boxing game for consoles that will be hitting the shelves this year. You may have heard the whispers online and written it off as just another false promise regarding a boxing game. After getting our hopes up more than once, it’s understandable most gamers are happy to keep celebrations to a minimum until they see the game. The proof is in the pudding, which will be the case for many.
You may have heard or read about this game without knowing, as it was pushed for a while under the title eSports Boxing Club. It doesn’t have the same ring as Undisputed. We browse the fighters available, the formats, and the gameplay. We want to give you all the information needed before rushing out and purchasing Undisputed on early release.
What you need to know
After all the talking and waiting, Undisputed finally has a release date. It will launch in early access and will be available on Steam. Some may want to wait for the final version and complete experience; after all this time, a while longer won’t hurt. Fans of boxing console games have had to learn to be patient. But the release date of the last day of January 2023 is a sign we’re moving in the right direction.
Don’t expect to see the game on the shelves of gaming stores this winter, though, as developers refuse to rush. They are taking their time to ensure everything is perfect and said as much in a recent interview. A statement from Devs on the game’s official website explained Undisputed would be released when creators feel the time is right. They plan to add more features and content before pushing the button on Undisputed’s definite release date.
The next question burning in the minds of gamers with a desire to play a well-made and serious boxing title is, which consoles will the title be available to play on when it is released? The last thing you want is to wait all this time only to find out you must purchase a different console to experience Undisputed in all its glory. Because let’s face it, we know this game will be special after an extended build-up.
Undisputed will be released on PC first, but don’t worry, it’s also coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. It’s yet to be determined if cross-play will be an option, but we live in hope. You’d expect a modern and well-planned game to offer cross-play over all platforms. Time will tell.
