Boxers Train on Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Arcade Machine

Boxers battle it out at Rooney’s Gym on a Tekken Tag Tournament 2 arcade machine which has been installed to help improve fighters’ reflexes. The game will be released on Sept 14th for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.

World renowned boxing manager and coach John Rooney Jnr has installed a Tekken Tag Tournament 2 arcade machine at his London gym to help his fighters improve reflexes and hand-eye coordination.

Rooney’s Gym owner John Rooney Jr said: “It’s one thing to get your body fit but it’s equally important to train the mind as well. I know a number of boxers who play fighting games like Tekken and I was surprised to see a noticeable improvement in their reflexes and hand-eye coordination. We’ve installed the arcade machine in Rooney’s gym as I am a firm believer in video games and the benefits they have for fighters’ reflexes and reaction times. These games are a great addition to a fighter’s arsenal of training tools.”
