Unfortunately I happened across this and now it’s totally screwing up my gaming schedule by eating into my time.
It’s pretty detailed management game in the style of Punch Club, but the added ability to influence your boxer during (the surprisingly nail-biting and epic) fights, is awesome. There’s a lot more that could be added to the game, like I’d love to be able to train up a roster of fighters in my gym as opposed to a singular fighter, but it’s still in early access.
While it doesn’t have any direct references so far, I’d give this a strong recommendation to any Hajime no Ippo or sports shonen anime fans. To me, it captures what is so fun about those shows.
