(Newser) – EA has a new poster boy: Mike Tyson. The infamous boxer will adorn the cover of Fight Night Round 4 alongside Muhammad Ali and will be a playable character within, Silicon Alley Insider reports. As the star of Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out! for the original Nintendo, Tyson was once the face of video-game boxing. Then he was convicted of rape and took a bite out of an opponent’s ear. Chances are, nostalgic gamers won’t care.
