Thanks to Vinny Mainolfi for the heads up – but it seems that there was a very different looking Fight Night taking shape originally for US Gold back in October 1985.
In their upcoming previews section, Zzap showed screenshots of a game with far more detailed main boxer players – but lacking in the background detail area.
It seems the game never changed developer, so was it a case that the large characters were unworkable? Maybe the graphics were just mockups that were produced for the press?
It’s early days yet, but here are the screenshots and original preview from Zzap to take a look at…

I’m going to call mock-up on the screens though, they look a little too good for my liking.
