The reason Mike Tyson was replaced was not due to the rape allegations against Tyson as some have claimed. The real reason was that Tyson lost his heavyweight champion title to James "Buster" Douglas shortly before his contract expired. In addition, as if thumbing their noses at their biggest rival at the time, Sega had signed a contract with Douglas to appear in his own boxing game, James "Buster" Douglas Knockout Boxing, on the Sega Genesis.
