On July 20, 2010, EA Canada revealed the fifth installment in the series; Fight Night Champion. There will be between 60 and 65 boxers on the roster for the final product and users will implement the new "Full Spectrum Punch Control" to move the combatants around the ring and throw some of the most devastating punches ever seen in a Fight Night game. EA Sports touts the new control method as delivering both "the most realistic punching system ever seen" while still allowing Champion to be "the most user-friendly title in the franchise's history."

The Fight Night games follow on from EA's earlier games
