How to Defeat Mr.Sandman

Use the following trick to defeat Sandman (title defense) in Round 1. This is quite challenging. Remember that he winks twice to show his "Tyson" punches. Punch him to stop him. If the punch is on the same side as the winking eye, you will get a star. It will most likely be his left (your right) that will wink first. Alternate, and once you have your two stars, let him have it, then immediately punch him with the left hand in the face after the uppercut. This is when the fight gets difficult. He will do two quick downward punches, the "Night-Night" punch, the "Stand Still" punch, and the side punch (in that order). The "named" punches will take awhile for him to wind up in order to confuse you. There are two ways to get through this. You can do it the easy way by simply dodging and count..
