Battling inside the ring in Fight Night Champion has been updated since the series last appeared on PlayStation 3. In place of the Total Punch Control system, EA Sports has implemented the Full Spectrum Punch Control scheme.
This fresh control method allows you to throw a series of punches and combination attacks in quick succession by simply flicking the right stick in any direction. With the new control scheme in place, you use a combination of timed blocks and fast feet to make it to the top and become the world heavyweight champion.
Another new addition to the line-up of moves is the power modifier. This allows you to throw heavy punches by holding down the R2 button on the wireless controller and combining it with the right stick. If you manage to connect a series of powerful blows with an opponent, the camera will wobble slightly and a faint whistling noise can be heard. This is the perfect time to unleash some body blows and go for the all-important knockout.
If, however, you find yourself on the receiving end of this kind of attack, be sure to get close to an opponent and hold down both the L2 and R2 buttons at the same time to hug your opponent and buy some recovery time.
