After months of anticipation, Undisputed, the first boxing video game since 2011, is poised to redefine the virtual boxing experience with the introduction of a career mode and character creator. Developed by Steel City Interactive, this game has already made waves with its Early Access version, featuring a roster of over 50 licensed boxers, including legends like Joe Frazier and Sugar Ray Robinson, and offering a staggering array of over 60 punches, innovative footwork mechanics, and 14 distinct fight venues.
While currently accessible exclusively on PC via Early Access, Undisputed is on the cusp of a broader release, extending its reach to PlayStation 5, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series S and X. The final iteration of the game promises an expansive roster of more than 200 fighters, complete with punch statistics meticulously sourced from CompuBox.
Unearthing the Gems: Undisputed Career Mode
In Undisputed’s initial career mode, players can step into the shoes of any licensed fighter in the game. This includes a roster of male fighters, featuring prominent names like Canelo Alvarez, Terence Crawford, and Tyson Fury, as well as legends like Joe Frazier and Sugar Ray Robinson. Notably, the game also spotlights an expanded women’s roster, offering players the opportunity to embody boxing luminaries like Katie Taylor, Natasha Jonas, and Jessica McCaskill, with more additions on the horizon.
The career mode in Undisputed presents boxing aficionados with a golden opportunity to carve out a unique path towards achieving the coveted status of world champion, all while taking command of some of the sport’s most illustrious figures.

Forging Legends: The Undisputed Character Creator
Undisputed introduces a groundbreaking character creator that invites fight enthusiasts to “build their legacy.” The process allows players to craft their own boxer, exercising a plethora of customization options. From selecting gender to tailoring appearance details like hairstyle and body weight (which determines the weight class), players can delve into a highly personalised experience. Moreover, they can assemble a dream team comprising a manager, cutman, and coach, essential for the fighter’s progress and skill development.
The character creator also empowers players to navigate their path to success, granting the agency to choose opponents strategically and negotiate fight contracts for maximum rewards. With the innovative Coach Advice System, in-ring dynamics dynamically adapt to gameplay, ensuring a unique challenge with every fight.
A Glimpse into Training Camps and Titles
Fine-tuning skills is a pivotal aspect of Undisputed character development. Training camps serve as crucibles where choices regarding vitality, movement speed, health, and defence directly influence strategy in upcoming bouts. The culmination of a fighter’s journey may result in engaging bouts or clinching gold, with various titles, including the bespoke Steel City Interactive belt, up for grabs.
Anticipated Release: Fall 2023
Steel City Interactive has announced a highly anticipated Fall 2023 release for both the Career Mode and Character Creator features, although a specific date has yet to be disclosed. Boxing enthusiasts around the globe await this groundbreaking development with bated breath, as Undisputed continues to redefine the virtual boxing landscape.
