Nintendo has revealed that Wii Punch-Out!! will have a brand new Title Defence mode where champions must protect their belt from ambitious boxers.

But beware, says Nintendo, as they'll better know your moves and present a tougher challenge second time around.

The company unveiled three of the opponents as returning fighters Piston Hondo, Great Tiger and Bear Hugger.

Piston Hondo's ranked highly and attacks quickly; Great Tiger uses Indian magic to befuddle boxers and Bear Hugger uses sheer force to send opponents to the mat.

Punch-Out!! is out on 22nd May. Head over to our recent hands-on impressions to see what's in store.
