Boxing is the one Wii Sports game that requires the nunchuck. You hold the Wii-mote in one hand and the nunchuck in the other. Then you punch like there's no tomorrow….well, not really. There is some skill to getting really good at Wii boxing. Like all sports, the more you practice, the better boxer you will be.
Wii Sports Boxing Game
There is both offense (punching) and defense (blocking and dodging).
Wii Boxing Defensive moves
- Hold the Wii-mote and nunchuck vertically. Tilt them left to dodge left and right to dodge right. Tilt them backwards to dodge backwards.
- Hold the Wii-mote and nunchuck vertically. Tilt them inward to block your face.
- Hold the Wii-mote and nunchuck parallel to the ground to block your body.
Wii Boxing punches
- The harder the punch the longer it takes for your boxer to recover
- Don't keep punching. Wait until your glove stops moving then punch again. Keep a good rhythm in boxing.
- Practice with the bag punching mini game to get your boxing timing just right.
- Hold the Wii-mote and nunchuck vertical and punch for a high jab. Hold them parallel to the ground for a body jab.
- To perform an upper cut punch in boxing, hold the Wii-mote low and swing your hand up quickly.
- Push the Wii-mote sideways for a hook. Change the angle of the Wii-motes to change the height of the punch.
When punching you can throw jabs (straight on punches), hooks (wide punches), and upper cuts (punches from down low).
Tip: If you keep your defense up and dodge a hard punch at the last second, Wii Boxing will slow down and you can throw a hard counter punch.
Tip: You can't knock someone out with a jab. No matter how low their life is, you will have to use one of the heavier punches (hook, upper cut, counter punch) to knock them out.
Tip: Practice combinations of the various punches until you get one you are good at.
Other Wii Boxing notes: If you beat the best boxer (Max) you get silver gloves.
