  • It is frequently thought that Mike Tyson's Punch Out went out of print due to Tyson biting part of Evander Holyfield's ear in a boxing match. This incident occurred in 1997, years after the contract expired, in addition to Tyson's incarceration for rape in 1991, again, after the contract had expired. Therefore legally, printing of the game discontinued before either of these events occurred.

  • The reason why Little Mac was made so little in the NES version of Punch-Out!! was to make it easier to see your opponent, as the developers couldn't translate the wireframe graphics from the arcade version properly.

  • Soda Popinski was one of several boxers who appeared in the original arcade game series. He appeared in the arcade game 'Super Punch-Out!!' under the name Vodka Drunkenski. His name was changed to Soda Popinski because of Nintendo of America's zero tolerance on alcoholic beverages as well as the negative stereotype it displayed towards Russian people.

  • Mike Tyson's inclusion into the original Punch-Out! title (resulting in this one) was done with his permission after a developer watched him in a boxing match. Even though he gave his permission for the inclusion, however, Mike Tyson never played Punch-Out! himself until a 2013 Fox Sports special, 26 years after the title's release.
