ABC Wide World Of Sports Boxing is a boxing computer game released in 1991. The game allows for more than just boxing, letting the player create and then train and manage their own character. It is based on the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) program Wide World of Sports and was released at the time of the program's 30th anniversary. Sportscaster Dan Dierdorf, then a boxing commentator for ABC, is featured in this game.

The game was known in the European market as TV Sports Boxing, part of Cinemaware's TV Sports series and was published by Mindscape.

Reception[edit]

Computer Gaming World stated that the game's fighting animation was inferior to that of 4D Boxing but that its career options were superior.[1]
