There’s also Ian Wright, Tony Daley playing Striker on the Super Nintendo, then another triple-header, on Winning Eleven: Dean Holdsworth v Phil Babb, Holdsworth v David Kerslake and Babb v Graeme Le Saux.

Nigel Benn and Barry McGuigan see who hits harder on Sonic Blast Man (McGuigan was also on here), while Frank Bruno also had a swing, as did Gary Mason. Naseem Hamed plays Super Punch Out!! and Ryan Rhodes squares off with Khalid Shafiq on Street Fighter EX Plus α.
