Fight Night Champion is bigger and better than its predecessors. Simpler combat system along with the role-playing element makes the game coddling and captivating. Despite the simplicity, you still need tactics to win which is where this Fight Night Champions Strategy guide comes in.

Fight Night Champion Strategy

Fight Night Champion is not a game where you can make your way to the top just by directly defeating your opponents. The road to glory is not a walk in the park and you will have to get through a lot of hurdles before you become one of the greatest. Let’s start with the basic offensive and defensive techniques:


The combat system in Fight Night Champion is relatively simpler. You can punch in different directions by just pushing the stick instead of mimicking the whole move. You will learn different moves as you progress through the career full of trials and bumps. Following tutorial tells you about the basics of punching in Fight Night Champion

Heavy punches can do more damage but they are slow in action and consume more stamina. Keep in mind that any missed attacks make you vulnerable to counters. Always keep an eye on your stamina meter as you can’t afford to execute moves that consume more stamina while you are running out of it.

Stepping punch can cause more damage like the heavy punches but can be countered easily. Counter Punches can be effective if you are skillful enough to dodge your opponents attacks by blocking,leaning, weaving or stepping.


In Fight Night Champion, you just can’t win only by offense. Defense is equally important. You should learn to dodge and block attacks and then counter before your enemy. Have a look at the following video for the defense tips.

Head movement is critical as most of the times, attacks are directed towards head region. You can use the lean button along with the left stick to move your head in any direction to dodge the attack. Blocking system involves the reflexes of both you and your player.

If both are sharp, your boxer will be able to block more efficiently and the transition from the defensive stance to the offensive move will be easier and quicker. Clinching can prevent you from extra damage so make sure you use it specially when you are under constant attack.

How to Deal With Body Spammers Online

Some players who want to win at any cost will use cheap tricks like body spamming to spoil the fun. They constantly throw hooks to the body till you run out of stamina and then attack to the face which inflicts more damage. Although this punch spamming does not cause any real damage to health but it is very difficult for the victim to counter or dodge the series of punches.

Sadly there is no proper way to deal with spammers. So you will also have to employ the same tactics to stop them. Use straight rights in series and try keeping a small distance. Straight rights inflict more damage and use less stamina. Once inside mode is engaged, keep on punching till stamina starts getting low and then block low and back away.

At first it may appear you are loosing the fight till you start noticing that your opponents health and stamina bar are not being recovered in between rounds. Now its your chance to turn the tables by spamming. Ultimately (if everything goes according to plan) you will emerge as a winner.
