Trying again: Looking for a certain Text Sim Boxing game

Archived from groups: comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.sports (More info?)

I try this about once every few months to try and get new leads on how/where to
track down this damn game.

It is several years old, was a text sim game, and was about boxing. The cost
at the time was way too high for me, 50.00, but it's no longer an issue. It
was incredibly deep with no graphics. You were a manager who had to work from
the ground up and hope that some day you could manage the likes of Tyson,
Lennox Lewis, and other greats. It had like a 3 day trial mode and then it
locked you out until you paid the 50 bucks.

This is not to be confused with the super old but very good similar type of
boxing game with the old school graphics. It is also not to be confused with
the OOTP team's boxing simulation. Though it is good, it's not what I'm
looking for.

If anyone has any leads I'd be very appreciative. If anyone has the game and
wants to sell it I'd be even more appreciative.

    Or Title Fight Pro Boxing?

    Title Fight Pro boxing didn't look like it, even though their site is down and
    the company appears to have gone under.

    Managers pro boxing sim looked promising but the only link I found to the
    company and/or the demo is bad. This may just be it.

    Anyone know a way to track down a copy of this game?

    Yes, I believe it may be. The problem is the link is dead and so is the main
    web page.

    Anyone know of ANYBODY with this game?

    Hi Mike,

    I suspect this isn't what you're after since I found it at the top of
    a google search but I downloaded that game just now starting at:

    http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?name=World+Championship+Boxing+Manager

    I haven't tried it or anything but the archive has an exe and several
    appropriate looking files. There is even a manual download.
