Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

This is from a press release concerning "Pound for Pound, Volume One," the upcoming Manny Pacquiao video game:

Created for a casual gaming audience, and developed for PC, mobile, iPad, iPhone and Facebook, "Pound for Pound" Volume 1 takes gamers through narrative arcs, intense action and addictive game play, as Manny the martial arts action hero battles through the underground world of heinous villains on a mission of justice. Gamers not only wield Manny's legendary combination of pummelling punches, with his lightning fast hands, but also a full arsenal of kicks and martial arts weaponry. Additionally, players will be able to customize and develop Manny into the ultimate mixed martial arts defender to fight hundreds of the most infamous enemies on a high-stakes fight.

"We are extremely excited about the launch of this new series," said David Ortiz, General Manager of Karkadann Games. "Our game captures Manny as a true action hero - with the will power, determination and resilience unique to Manny. We wanted to celebrate a great athlete and complete fighter and provide an entertaining game experience for his millions of fans. On that foundation we built a fast-paced, graphically stimulating action adventure experience with immersive gameplay. We can't wait to share our vision with Manny's fans and gamers around the world," added Ortiz.

In just five months after its launch, Karkadann Games has positioned itself as a world class developer and publisher of games for both Middle East and international audiences by pursuing original and engaging titles. "We are proud of the premium titles we have already produced and are confident that Karkadann Games will be a key driver in the future of the gaming industry," concluded Ortiz.

Now it might just be me, I don't know, but when a fighter starts putting out video games and food products and getting endorsements because he's apparently the unbeatable hottest ticket in boxing, I start getting at least a little worried. How about you?
