The lights are on
Earlier this year, I watched my co-worker Dan try to defeat Mike Tyson in Punch-Out!!. He failed miserably for three straight hours. Near the end of his attempt, I made a bold claim: Dan's story was just a prologue to a better (and shorter) video featuring me effortlessly beating Iron Mike. The time has finally come to back up my bravado.
While I try to shame Dan on the gameplay front, the accompanying commentary from Andrew Reiner and Jeff Marchiafava shame him on several personal and professional levels. Dan sits in also, but his testimony does more to incriminate than defend himself.
Watch the drama unfold in the video below:

This video made my day! Thanks guys:)
If you get up on a 9 count, you come back with full health. Just a little tip for you Mr. Juba.
C'Mon Joe you can do it! If you beat Tyson within the time limit of the challenge then you should take Dan's belt!!!!
Finally!!! so excited!
Good try, Joe! It took me about 4 hours before I beat him, so keep at it.
Sorry Joe, but no matter how well you do against Tyson, Dan will always have the superior basketball skills to counter with. I mean, did you even score a point that day?
I knew Joe Juba was all talk, just like his Bioshock Infinite review.
The most epic match of the entire game. The champ is as tough as they come, but not invincible just super strong.
How in the name of all that is Right and Good in the universe, has Dan Ryckert NOT been punched in the face before?
Just listened to the college story...Dan really is a horrible person.
I didn't think my opinion of Dan could get any lower; how wrong I was. Jeff Marchiafava and I are of like minds in our loathing of Dan, except he has even more reason to hate his guts, just listening to Dan pisses me off, never mind being the victim of his inane pranks.
