|This will be the first special event you will come across. Once your first bar is full, you will fight in this event. If you lose, do not save your game, as you can't come back to it. Reload your last save if you lose and try again.
Settings: You can play legit, or set it to easy and turn off illegal blows.
Fight store: Anytime you unlock something, make sure to get upgrades for your gear, they increase your stats.
Training: You can sim these to make the game faster, but you only get half the positive effects of training this way. If you are not pressed for time in completing the game, play out the training so you gain stats more quickly. After your first title fight, money should no longer be a factor when picking a trainer, so I would suggest switching between the second guy and doing weightlifting, then picking the third guy and doing the combo dummy. Alternate between the two to increase your power, speed, agility and stamina quickly - these are your main four attributes.
Fights: You can play these legit, or do it the easy way. Most fighters will take a swing at you and leave their heads exposed, allowing for a haymaker to easily land. Throw a haymaker with A or RB and then take two steps back, then another haymaker and repeat. Most of them should land, but they will block some and counter-punch, but go right back to your routine after. If you are fighting one of the annoying fighters that constantly leans back and away from your punches, use low illegal blows (the knee strike is the best) to take them down quickly.
