EA SPORTS are poised to bring back legendary boxing computer game Fight Night.

But sports fans will have to wait – developers are focusing on the next UFC release scheduled for later this year, according to Video Games Chronicle.

The Last Fight Night offering came back in 2011

The last incarnation of the legendary platform game was back in 2011, with the Fight Night Champion title.

This was available on PS3, Xbox 360 and iOS devices.

Previously, EA Canada’s Fight Night was an annual fixture after its debut in 2004 earned rave reviews and sold over a million copies.

And despite Champion also being well received, the series has since gone on hold with the developer focusing its efforts on creating games for the officially licensed UFC franchise.

Bringing the classic back will delight one big name in the boxing world – promoter Eddie Hearn.

The Matchroom boss has previously tweeted to EA Sports to re-release that popular boxing game.

And he confirmed that the software giant had responded that they are “looking into” his request.

Fans went wild at the prospect of a full boxing game returning to consoles, after 2018’s Creed: Rise to Glory failed to land a knockout punch.

One Twitter fan wrote: “Would turn Hearn into a hero.”

Another added: “Please let this be true.”

EA Sports’ Fight Night 5 currently has no official release date.
