The eWBSS tournament, which is for the eAli trophy, will see eight of the most recognisable heavyweight boxers battle it out for the crown. The competition started with Muhammad Ali, Evander Holyfield, Lennox Lewis, Joe Frazier, Mike Tyson, Butterbean, George Foreman and David Haye – not sure why Haye is in there, but we’ll let that one slide as it’s a bit of fun.
The eWBSS Heavyweight Legends tournament will be simulated on EA Sports ‘Fight Night Champion’ in a knockout series to determine the champion. All the action can be streamed live exclusively on the WBSS Facebook page and bookmaker Ladbrokes is offering customers the chance to bet on the eWBSS boxing action.

eWBSS Final Tips & Predictions: eMuhammad Ali v eMike Tyson (Sunday, 19:00 GMT)
It is the fight we thought we would never see, but on Sunday March 29 the biggest ‘dream fight’ in the history of boxing will take place as two iconic figures step into the ring in the final of the World Boxing Super Series tournament. In one corner will be eMuhammad Ali, and in the other, the man once dubbed the ‘Baddest Man On The Planet’, eMike Tyson. Will the sweet scientific skill of the colourful eAli lead to victory, or can the savage power of ‘Iron eMike’ sting worse than a bee and hand him ultimate glory inside the virtual boxing ring? eAli’s road to the final has seen him stop both eEvander Holyfield and late stand-in eSonny Liston, while eTyson has blazed a trail through his half of the draw by destroying eButterbean and then taking out eGeorge Foreman. This is a tough fight to call – eTyson needs just one big shot to swing the fight firmly in his favour, but will he manage to land one on the fleet-footed and agile eAli? I expect ‘Iron eMike’ will lay his gloves on eAli a few times in this one, but ultimately he will be outclassed by the smoother operator in eAli who may use his old rope-a-dope technique that results in eTyson wearing himself out. And once he has run out of steam, eAli mill move through the gears to take him out with clinical precision.
